    Default 97 burban power door lock issue

    I have a 97 suburban.... so this just happened to me this morning when i went to try to lock my doors when i got in the car and my door locks switch wont work . both driver and passenger side switch and the rear doesnt open... Is there a fuse that i blew out?? but i checked out the fuses in the front under the hood and could not find a blown fuse...... is the a fuse panel inside the truck? if so does anyone know where its located

    Its on the driverside in the dash. OPEN DOOR AND LOOK AT DASHBOARD. Little ( kind of ) driangle shaped .

    By the sound of it , its a fuse. Good Luck

    is that the one right next to the E-brake?

    Default power lock issue

    Once you find the fuse panel, check fuse 13, its for the cigarette litter, but that is where the door switches get there power from.




    Should be a spare 20 amp fuse under the hood.

    Good luck.

    Have a similar problem with 98 Suburban. I can lock the doors with the lock button on the keys though. Thoughts?

    Both door switches not working or just one? Likely a bad switch or connector on same. Easy enough to pull the door panel and test the switches.

    Check ALL fuses!! If its only one switch, make sure the switch has a good connection or check out the switch, otherwise if it's all it's probably a fuse!

    Both door switches and the rear switch. I will check all the fuses as well as the switches themselves. Thanks for the help.
