Door Lock & Radio Issue (Alero)

Unread post by Snoopy48 » Mon Jul 30, 2018 12:29 pm

I just picked up this 2004 Alero with 51K miles. The car is literally like new except for these couple issues. I'm not sure if they are related or not. Everything is stock original. Here's the scenarios:

Start engine, put in drive
Doors automatically lock
Stop car, put in park, kill engine
Doors will NOT unlock automatically

Turn key to on position or start engine
Radio plays and works perfectly
With radio "on", turn key to off position, remove key, open door
Radio still plays,
Get out of car and lock doors with remote, radio still is on.
unlock doors with remote, open and shut door(s), re-lock doors with remote,
radio then turns off.

Can someone please tell me what to check to solve these two issues? This is my sons first car and I want to make sure these issues are fixed before I turn it over to him.

here's some programming info on your door locks: ... tml?page=6

on the radio, does the dome light work normally with the door opening?
