1999 GMC Suburban Passenger doors will not open

10

Asked by Mar 22, 2015 at 03:53 PM about the 1999 GMC Suburban K2500 SLE 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The passenger door locks will not release to allow the doors to open.  Even when I
manually try to pull the lock latches up to unlock the door, they will not move.  The
electronic key does not allow it to unlock either.  Both rear passenger doors became
faulty at the same time.  I tried opening the door panel; however, unable to do so
because I cannot get the panel off, need to have the door open to have access.  I
checked the fuses, they are good.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Check the under hood fuse box legend

I checked the relays under the hood, everything seems to be working there. I also disconnected the battery thinking perhaps an electrical current is preventing the manual opening of the door locks, that did not work. I am completely baffled. Any suggestions?
