    Default Power door locks question

    On my 98 I've been slowing cleaning up the miscellaneous on the jeep wether they are from mods or issues I've had since I got it. One issue I have is with my power locks wether it's with the door controls or keyless entry both of my front doors do not lock and unlock electronically. They wil lock manually just not electronically. Is this the common relay issue or something else?

    It could be an easy fix. When you lock manually is the mechanism stiff?

    Generally, the grease dries out over time. You can spray some penetrating oil on the mechanism for that. Other than that, the switches can wear out or the lock motors can go bad

    Well I opened the driver side panel and everything is connected as far a linkages. Lived up the lock with some silicone spray and no change. So I guess the motor is bad?

    The switches go before the motor usually. Hook some power to it and see what happens

    Well I can now add to that list, rear passenger window went down his afternoon and now won't go up. So I should look at the passenger side master relay?
