Alrite since its been really cold around here i havent locked my car in awhile because they have been frozen. THen one day it was pretty nice out and i thought i would try to lock my car. As it turns out the only lock that goes down now is the drivers side lock. Also when I turn the key u can here a noise coming from the kick panel where the speaker is located. I have talked to some people and supposedly behind the speaker there is somethin that controls the central locking system.. I forgot wat it's called????

Ne ways has ne one else had a problem with their locks, and can someone help me out.

all thats behind my speakers is wiring, but i had an aftermarket alarm put in so the locking controll system was encorperated into that so im gona guess that my old one was removed. however, if your having a problem with this it would probably be cheaper to get an alarm installed, go to your local custom shop and get an alarm installed for like 200 bucks or osmthing like that and it should take care of it, unless its your solinoides then you will need new ones, get them at teh wrecker or somthing like that.

take off the kick panel and see whats behind it, if there is somthing behind it replace it if thats possible or when the kick panel is off see what is making the noise, and go to the wrecker and get another one.
