Power Locks Don't Work, but Power Windows Do??????

- 2001 Jeep Cherokee Sport
- Viper Alarm System installed before I owned it
- Power Locks don't work at anymore, from any door or from the viper remote
- The little light on the power locks switch on drivers and passenger door does light up
- No noises or anything when I press lock/unlock switch on any door
- Power windows all work fine, including the window lock.
- Checked the #13 fuse and it looks fine

HELP!

Drivers door master switch issues are common. Driver door wire harness issues are common. The Viper complicates your troubleshooting, especially if the installer was a moron.

You need to do some investigating and locate the cause of the problem, or eliminate one or more of the most common causes of similar problems.

Grab your volts/ohms multi-meter and test for wire continuity, and for power/ground in the correct places. You may want to unplug or disable the Viper and see if that is the cause.

A recent Gallup public opinion poll shows the NRA, at 58% approval, has a higher approval rating than either Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama.

Ugh... where would you start? Take the panel off the door and check the voltage at the master switch?

I don't even know where the Viper 'box' is?
