    Trying to track down the reason why one of my power door locks on my 88 suburban isn't working. Motor is ok when connected to a power source but the one plug isn't getting any power. Now I have to trace the wiring back from the bad door to the relay. Does anyone know where the relay for the power door lock system is located?

    I have the same exact problem and haven't had much luck figuring it out. I know its somewhere above the steering column. I think more to the passenger side. Let me know if you figure it out. Take a picture of the relay so I can see it too.

    Don't know how much they moved them around but mine on my 78 were attached to the pedal assembly, right above the gas pedal.

    What he said, I had no idea until I did a tranny conversion. It's tucked way up there on the right side of the pedal mounting bracket. Not too far from the brake light switch.
