The most likely cause is a defective lock actuator.You'll have to pull the door panel to get at it.Unplug the connector,and rig a 12v test light across the two connector pins.Pressing the lock or unlock button should make the light come on(lock or unlock just reverses the polarity).If you get a light,then the actuator is the problem.If not,then trace back towards the lock relay to find the open in the circuit.

SOURCE: power windows

I think on that year there is a safety switch on the inside of rear door jam so the children cannot roll windows down and fall out. It should be on the back door when you open the door look for a caution sticker that says child protection switch, I sure hope thats the problem And if so Great If not get back to me I can look up where the power relay is for rear windows. Ok Take care, Bear001

sorry not sure the 12v prob will help this swtich works on 5v off 3v unlock 1v lock single wire lock/unlock logic signals
I found wiring diagrams at
http://www.dodge.com/bodybuilder/2004/docs/wd/rswd/tc.pdf
it is 2004 but use the wiring diagrams to test the wires
(most likely to fail where they flex)
because it is using logic gates disconnect the plug at each end of the wire you are testing or the damn thing will find a few diffrent ways to trick you.

The switch itself may be faulty. Have you tested it with an ohmmeter? Have you tested power to the passenger switch with a voltmeter?

The lock actuator is probably broken in that door. We got one of the internet for 80$ and replaced it outselves and it solved this problem. IOD fuse is very temporary fix as system is sensing problem and flipping to protect itself like the breaker switches in the house.

Only the drivers window works, first it was the real ones and now the pass. won't work at the door switch


Could be individual switches or the rear may have child safety locks on them--the clue will be usually you cannot open rear doors from inside the vehicle---it (the child locks) will in many cases stop rear windows from working----consult the owner manual or look at inside of rear doors for the slide switch at each door under and near the rear of the armrest.

Doors won't open from inside or outside


If you look at the opposite child door lock you will see that the lever/switch is almost exactly lined up with the middle of the armrest on the door. Practice on the door you can open to slide a wide-bladed screwdriver along the edge of the armrest and into the door crack. Avoid the rubber insulation, but once you get the hang of it you will see that it is pretty easy to push the child lock into the correct position for you to open the door. Then, soak all lock mechanisms with light oil like wd-40 and work the mechanisms until they are smooth. Don't get oil on your fabric, use a rag to wipe up excess.

My back doors wont open


If your back doors won't open from the inside then the child proof locks maybe turned on. Open the door from the outside and look at the edge of the door near the lock for a small lever or screw setting for the child proof lock. Tun off the child proof lock and then you can open the back door from the inside.

Door on 95 geo metro 4 door won't close because the child proof lock in on and I can't get it to go off. Door won't stay shut. Any ideas how to fix this?


Your childproof lock have nothing to do with the latch not closing. It only makes it where you can not open the door from the inside. I would think you are in need of a new latch.

1997 Geo Metro rear door won't open!


I have the same car, same problem. I've still not been able to fix it, despite taking the inside panels off the rear doors, checking the rods were seated, applying WD-40 to the lock mechanisms, and manually working the mechanism. Child locks are not engaged, but I tried putting them on and off too. Just won't open.
