03 cts driver door lock problem Hey all new to the forum joined to ask a question
got a 2003 cts sedan
the driver door lock goes crazy when:
the car is put into drive from park
the car is put into park from drive or revers
the button is pushed to lock or unlock driver door
unlocking from the outside is tough with the key (key fob is broken so cant use it)
what the lock does is whenever u put it in drive it goes up and down rapidly a few times before it finally stay down
so its like up down up down up down and then stays down
just trying to figure out if its the actuator or what the problem is that would be causing this.
this only happens on the drivers door lock Re: 03 cts driver door lock problem could well be the door actuator going bad or the control module which I believe is in the drivers door, worth checking for corrosion or dampness, can play havoc with electronics. Re: 03 cts driver door lock problem how hard is it to take the door panel off? (havent ever worked around cadillacs, its my sisters car only thing ive done is pop it open just enough to stick my hand down to get a credit card she dropped behind the door panel) Re: 03 cts driver door lock problem its mostly screws to remove then everything just pulls off, i know this is for an 05 cts but it should be pretty similar stuff https://docs.google.com/open?id=0Bz8...GRDbC0yT0pENUE Re: 03 cts driver door lock problem
