OK - so I'm going to try to "Re-Ask" for help on this one again - if that doesn't work - I may just re-post this.
I got the door assembly apart (Thanks very much for the helpful photos and links on how to do that.) and still can't figure it out.
I've got a new video up -
Anyone know the solution to this?
I’m looking for help with this “chattering” malfunctioning door lock on my 2008 Jeep Wrangler Sahara Unlimited. As you can see from the video, the lock on the passenger side will chatter and seemingly attempt to lock multiple times without success.
If I manually lock it - and then hit the lock button on the remote key - it will chatter and actually unlock the door I manually locked. Almost as if the mechanism was going the wrong way.
Occasionally it will successfully lock after the chattering.
I have been looking for the answer to this for about a month now. I had the door partially apart - and then had to tend to more pressing issues with the breaks on the Jeep. But now I’ve got the whole door assembly off - and am still not sure what the problem is. My next step is to dismantle the driver side and try to compare the two behaviours and see if I can get any clues that way.
I don’t know much about electronics, and worry that I am chasing down a mechanical problem that may be an electrical / relay problem.
Anyone had any experience with this? Maybe even on other vehicle types? I would appreciate any feedback that could help me isolate this problem.
Thanks in advance.
