Power door lock noise

The rear power door lock on the driver's side makes a very loud buzz/screech when locking. I'm guessing actuator? Anyway, anyone have any idea how expensive this little problem is to have fixed?

It is the lock motor. it is intregrated into the latch. I am not sure on price but to get an idea the front pass. one I had to get was $90.00

Thanks for the info. After posting last night, I went back into the archives and found a thread on the same problem. Seems as though it's fairly common with these vehicles..... I'm calling the dealer tomorrow to set an appointment to get it fixed. It's scaring the crap out of the dog every time the lock activates.

Mine's been doing this for a very long time, and I know of other vehicles that had this problem for years. Chances are your locks will keep working just fine -- they'll just irritate the hell out of you.

What? You can deactivate the speed sensitive auto-locking feature?

BTW, it's going into the dealer this AM for the lock screeching.....I'll have them call me at work first to let me know how much to fix.......too much, and I'll just put up with it. Christmas coming........

YES, first :turn the inginition to the ON position. then make sure the front doors are UN-locked. then turn the key OFF . then on-off 3 more times (4 total ending in OFF) . now press the power lock to locked position. you should hear a beep that indicates that the change has been done. Now if u remember to not use that power lock switch you wont get the noise. (of course i am so used to it i still lock the car when getting out)

PS please post the cost if u still get it fixed which i am going to do myself( after Xmas)

Well, once in a while you win one.

Got the lock solenoid replaced at the Chrysler dealer today, and the cost was $0.00. Seems that the original owner, at time of purchase, invested in a Chrysler Gold warranty. So, my car's covered for most things bumper to bumper until next fall. Specifically, 5 years or 100,000 km., whichever comes first. Not even a deductable.

P.S..... thanks for the info on deactivating the auto lock feature. For us, with the loud buzzing, it was twice as bad...last year, I had an aftermarket keyless system installed, which locks the doors immediately when the ignition is turned on...(first BUZZ)....then the factory speed sensitive auto lock kicked in once we started driving.....(second BUZZ).......

Sure glad it's fixed.....and for FREE !!

i can't believe they told you had the warranty...
i bought an extended warranty when i bought my concorde. the trans went out 10 months later, and they tried to charge me for it. they had no clue that i had a warranty..



glad you got it fixed though!
