    I took off my passenger side door panel yesterday to fix my power window and the auto door lock on that side is screwed up now. The auto switch on both doors only unlocks/locks the drivers side door now. I can't get either switch to work for the passenger side door. Any ideas on what went wrong?

    Hoolyjohnson, Your problem sounds like a simple switch, if you can lock and unlock both doors from the dr side and not eh pass side it more likely to be a switch. If nothing on the pass side works, check all grounds for that door. I have seen a loose and rusty ground cause a probplem like this.

    thanks for the info.
    it drove me crazy for a long time to hit the drivers side lock and it only locked and unlocked the pass side doors and didnt do anything on either driver side.i actually pulled out the switch on the drivers door and re-grounded it but havent done the drives side rear yet.i plan on swapped out the drivers door switchs and running a wire and powerlock to the cargo doors too.but thanks for the input.
    goodluck
