I have a 1999 Buick Park Avenue the doors don't lock or unlock you have to use the key and also the windows don't go up or down. What had happen is the Anti theft was going off and we could not get it to stop so we unhooked the battery and then hooked it up and since then that stuff don't work, we checked all of the wiring, fuses, and door switch and they are all fine....Please help

1. There is not a fuse for the power windows. They are regulated by the drive door module inside the door panel. 2. Check the driver door module fuse first. 3. Replace the driver door module and your problem will be solved. 4. A new module costs $675 but you could go on ebay and buy a used one for $50 or less. 5. It is about a half hour job and is relatively easy to replace.

Where, does your Brain accumulate so much STUPIDITY ‼️‼️ WoW, to advise someone to go out and purchase a $650.00+ Part that will NOT EVEN REPAIR THE PROBLEM IS INSANE‼️‼️ The fuse or circuit breaker would be the second item on my check list. But the actual fix for this problem would be to reprogram the auto-window~Up, & auto-window down, as well as the auto door lock/unlock sequences & security anti theft system.

Same issue with 99 park avenue, after tearing doors apart and cleaning and lubricating the lock mechanism, there has been no issues since, that was a little over a year ago, make sure that all the linkage is clean and lubes and make sure they are not bent

After giving up searching online for a fix only finding same problems for 97 up park aves I also checked all fuses the unit in door on my 03 park ave and after tracing wires on 3 cars with same problems no windows working along with locks and radio not shutting off and security light on, this is the problem with all the ones I came across, in the jam between body and door I find multiple broken wires, rewire them and everything works again
