Default door lock noise ???

Somehow on our 2000 Durango the left passenger's door lock **** slipped behind the door panel, so I took the panel off andslipped it back up in the panel hole.When the doors lock, that door makes a loud buzzing sound near the rear of the door.What in the world could it be?Wife says the buzzing happened when the door **** slipped behind the panel and sometimes she has to manually unlock that door. Perhaps it is a relay that can be changed out. Anyone have a wiring schematic for the doors? Pics? Thanks!

I would do that, butwife wants to be able to activate the door with the key fob and let daughter in/out back seat. Is the motor expensive to replace?? Thanks.

I would say you have a door lock going bad/out.

Check out the info in this thread for help:

I think it is called a door lock actuator, the door will lock and unlock with the key fob, its just making an irritating sound. [:@] I can't find this part online, any help? Thanks!

I'm sorry. I sent you down the wrong path. I knew what you wanted, just provided the wrong link.

HERE! is the correct link below. Read through the info and you will get everything you need to fix it, part #s, How-to's on the install are in the last post at the bottom, etc.

How do I know all this is in there? I wrote it... that's how. [sm=smiley1.gif]

I would call a dealer to ensure the correct part number, then check for best price online.

The sound you are experiencing is the actuator in its final stages of life.

IndyDurango, Thanks for the excellent and informative thread!!! My D has been making this noise from the driver's side for about a year now, and I have been putting it off thinking it was either too hard or too expensive. Dealer told me it would be about $350. The information you included on the other site was comprehensive and has led me to realize I can do this myself. THANKS!!!!

I will post again when I have completed my repair...
