    passenger side only...

    My problem is a little different. My tahoe is 4 door, and the other day I went to unlock the doors at the inside switch, but at the same time my girlfriend in the passenger seat was trying to open the door. Ever since then the lock refuses to work, I push on the passenger side manual lever, and its stuck in the open position... Only problem is its actually locked! The other problem is the key wont open the door either (it hasnt been able to long before the lock stopped working), so I have no way of taking the door panel off. I took off the handle bezel on the inside, and was able to barely reach the rod that attaches to the lock lever, and it wont budge. I do hear a relay click when i try the power lock switch, and all the other 3 locks operate. Ideas?

    I had the same issue on my 95 4 door. Power windows all worked, but no door lock switch.
    Circuit breaker 30A silver unit in the fuse box was fine.. I thought I had issues with wiring.
    Turns out (like others mentioned) it was the 20A fuse for the Cig Lighter (I believe it was #13) that was blown. Popped in a new 20A and they all worked again. Plus my stereo amp was also powered by the same fuse, meaning my rear door speakers were ALSO not functioning until the new fuse was in.

    All works great now with the fuse.

    Check both your silver circuit breaker fuse and #13 cigarette lighter fuse (if you have a 4 door model).

    Try ensuring the mechanism is not jammed because perhaps the latch was in the middle off opening. Does pushing the door closed again help?

    I found out that the Handel is broken from the inside and the lock motor is very week so replaced and great :)

    Thanks


    By the way I came up with an idea (actually I couldn't sleep yesterday thinking of this matter)

    I well take both the Tahoe and the Yukon and swap all the good stuff in the from the 4dr Yukon to the 2dr Tahoe to solve a lot of my problems the Tahoe michanecs are week but the Yukon body is heavy and rusty

    Hey everyone, new here.

    1999 Tahoe LS z71 4x4

    I'm having the "Blown fuse when plugging in cigarette lighter" issue as well. I quit using it for the longest time, now I feel it's time to dig in.

    Anyone have a solution for this. I've looked up and down the wiring and all seems well.

    I plan on removing the lighter and replacing it with a new one. Only because that's the last thing I can find. So I need help in 2 areas.

    1) Has anyone solved this issue and made the lighter work without issue?

    2) How the heck do you get to the lighter connectors and remove them? :D Any documentation on this anywhere. Of course, Chilton's is useless.

    From what I see it's going to mean taking the lower dash off. Which I don't mind, but wanted to reach first to see in there is a better way or a solution to this.

    Please helps guys! I need guidance. :) Cheers! LJ

    the sockets can get dirty with debris causing it not to work and corrosion can cause the same issue as well as shorting because internal contact parts can break off. Replacement is best. when you remove the trim around the assembly you will see four black squares. You basically remove the center pins in them and afterwards cuss the hell out of it because at that point the remaining pieces don't want to give way enough to just let the assy just pop out easily like is supposed to. Likely because of hard plastic.

    I have the same problem 95 suburban, Just quit one day, seats and door locks. I replaced the metal reseting fuse. I can hear the lock relay clicking under the dash but none of the locks work nor any of the electric seat functions.
