2004 Olds Silhouette - electric door locks lock on their own

The electric door locks try to lock constantly if all doors shut, the van will lock within a few seconds. Once in a while it will not unlock (electronically) so you need to use the door key.
Also, once in a while this happens and when you get in to start the car the horn beeps once when you turn the ignition.

Strange thing.... my son pointed out this seems to only happen when it's a hot day???

Most likely your alarm system needs reset. When you use the button to turn the alarm on and off the horn beeps and lights flash. Horn beep when switch turned on, makes sense would be in the alarm system with all you've told.

SOURCE: Replacing dashboard lights on an 2000 Oldsmobile Silhouette Van?

this will take some time but is fairly easy. you have to remove the dash pieces on that side. then this will allow you access to the instrument cluster. becareful not to wear clothing that will give off a static discharge this could short out the cluster board. the bulbs are tiny so be careful while rep-lacing them. the bulbs can be purchased at a local store the bulbs are a 194 or a 1893 in most cases.

I had a similar problem. Check your battery, it is probably on the verge of dying. My problem went away when the battery was replaced.

Your problem is the door thinks that it is already locked and closed. You need have the sliding door unlocked, have someone pull the handle as if they were going to open the door and then use a tool to "Open" the latch that normally would hold the door closed.

Constant beeping when opening door to exit van


Good news. After letting the van sit for a few hours, when I went to get in it again, I opened the van with the key (ie. not the remote fob) and there was no beeping. I don't know if checking all the fuses (I fulled and checked each one), or disconnecting the battery, using the key, or just letting it sit did the trick, but it is now fixed.

From the back of the front door slide your hand in the sliding door crack and find the child-safety-lever. Push the lever up and/or down while moving the sliding door manual lock/unlock button to the up position. Also works on the non-powered sliding door.

Rear liftgate 99 Olds silouette van won't open


I had the same problem. You can't take the panel off without having the hatch open. I had to pull it loose
under the window and squirt about a hole can of WD-40 in on all the door mechanism. When I got it open I found out that there is a hole in the bottom of the door about the size of a quarter that would allow
gravel dust and stuff in and rust the components and the lock making the door stay locked all the time.
After the wd-40 I pushed the lock & unlock button many times and it finally unlocked. I then opened the hatch and removed the panel and then I unhooked the lock motor so that it would not happen again.
It has been that way for 4 years now with no problem.

Power door locks won't work


You need to have someone or yoursef check the body control module with a compatible scan tool. Thats where the problem you are having resides. It may need a software update or replacement. You can also disconnect the battery for a few minutes, that will cause the BCM to reset and may fix it.

Try and check the latch in the door sometimes they catch and don't open all the way it may take a screwdriver to pry it up or it could be a clip has broke inside the door on the trip mechenizm and won't let it hit the spring tension to lock it shut.
