    Default automatic doors will only unlock

    I'm having a little problem this my 95 cutlass supreme. I recently
    pressed the automatic door lock button (driver's side) and silly me
    wanted the doors to lock...
    checked the passenger side switch nothing
    checked the clicker... nothing
    everything still unlocks without a problem

    I would like to try and fix this myself but the wanted to get your ides
    first.
    any suggestions?

    Probably the switch on that door. The switch has 3 wires. One is the
    supply feed (from battery) and is usually the center wire. The two
    outer wires are for LOCK and UNLOCK. The switch is probably bad on
    one side but still good on the other.

    Replace the switch, but before you do, be sure the wires are attached
    and not corroded where they connect to the switch. If you want to
    test the switch, take a volt meter or test light. The center terminal
    should be hot all the time. The outer 2 wires should be hot when the
    switch is flipped one way, the other way, the other wire is hot (not
    necessarily the same wire toward the direction you flip the switch.

    The only other possibility would be a broken wire somewhere, but I bet
    its the switch.
