With the door(s) open the seat backs will not lock. Both doors have to be closed for the seat backs to lock. If they're not locking at all, there's a solenoid inside of each seat back that will probably need to be replaced. The other possibly is the circuit is shorted to ground and keeping the solenoids energized all the time. But if that were the case it would kill your battery. HTH. -Jim
