    Greetings.....I have a 2003 Silverado w/ 5.3 L that has an electrical problem, just can't figure out what exactly.
    A while back I noticed the key fobs wouldn't lock or unlock the doors or activate the factory alarm. I then realized the passenger door look wouldn't engage when starting off like the driver door. After further investigation, i realized I had no power window, lock, or mirror on the passenger side. The dome light won't even come on when you open the passenger door. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Welcome! Sounds like a wire issue getting cut or picnched in the door jam especially since you say the dome light wont come on, there is a hose inside the door jam that contains all the wires look there then start following the wires

    sounds like I would start by checking the continuity on the door switch, and check the engines for codes as well... sounds crazy I know, but you'd be surprised sometimes.

    I was looking at an '03 Suburban that had the same problem. The dealership wasn't willing to fix it - one of the reasons I backed out of the deal. I did find some info including a campaign that talked about needing to reprogram the door zone module. I don't think it's a simple solution, but seems common enough there should be some info out there on the web.
