1st Gen. Door Locks

Trucks got power windows and door locks. Key in the door wont turn lock down and the switch doesnt do anything either, no noise is heard when pressing it either. Any suggestions before the door gets torn apart ?

'93 has a plastic vent on the edge of the door, don't know if yours does. Common cause of failure to change locked to unlocked is a corroded door lock motor, they are usually mounted with a 1/4 in rivet on the edge of the door under the latch. drill the rivet or remove the panel and unclip the lock motor.

Second common is hardened grease in the latch case, take it out and pressure wash or degrease and regrease it with white grease or synthetic.

No sound from either door? Fuse might be out from the stuck motor. The switches also corrode and quit, they can be disassembled and the contacts cleaned.

Ok. My first real guess that the motor was no good for the locks. but now I can look for some grease too. Thanks.
