[xj] Power Locks in-op

@RANDALL_ADAMS (RANDALL ADAMS)

Hi all,

Since I purchased my '86 XJ6 last month I have been without power locks.
Tonight I logged on and looked at the in-line fuse chart and found one I
didn’t realize was there. I have replaced the fuse and I now have power
locks on the driver’s side doors only and there is a tick tick tick noise
coming from the drivers door near the key hole.

Where do I go from here? Has anyone ever encountered this before?–
Thanks- Randall

Randall,

Well, the electric circuit seems to be at least fundamentally in order. My
guess would be that the right hand side lock motor linkages are binding.
This is very common. Remove door trims and lubricate the rods and slides.
Might as well do the left sides as well.

Post back if that doesn’t do the trick.

Thanks Doug,

After I posted my message to the list I went back out to the car and it was
still ticking. I opened the door to smell hot wires. needless to say I
took the fuse out! I’ll pull the panel and check out the rods and slides,
It may have just been a hot relay/motor.–

Randall,
Yikes ! Something is overloading the circuit—perhaps sticky linkages as I
mentioned or perhaps also the driver’s door lock motor----which contains the
switch itself—is stuck in an energized position.
