So Im beyond confused....

 

Anytime I lock my RRC via the Drivers Door lock the lock will go down, only to pop right back up seconds later. The latch and everything else works and looks to be hooked up together. Could it be a faulty BECM?

 

Has anyone else had this issue?

When you say you are locking it from the drivers door, are you talking about using the key from the outside?

I have not had this issue, and sadly lack a RRC, but I'm assuming the systems are fairly similar to a D1. If I try to lock the doors on a D1 with the drivers door open, it will lock and then pop up a few seconds later. I would check to make sure the door switch is good. Seems like the truck thinks the driver door is open.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I didn't think the RRC had a BCM, I thought management was distributed through individual controls (window ECU, seat ECU, central locking ECU, alarm ECU, etc). 

 

I agree with Tyler that it's the same behavior as locking with the door open, so I'm guessing faulty door switch makes the truck think it's open. Is your dome light on?

At least on the DII it is a different switch that tells whether or not the door is closed vs the switch that activates the dome light. I'm not sure with the D1 or RRC, but I would expect it would be similar, but I may be wrong.

So... 

 

Its definitely not the LHF Side, when ever I lock the doors via pushing down the RHF Door lock switch and than I lock the doors with the key from the LHF side it will lock fine. Thus leaving me to believe its a stuck lock on the RHF side.

 

Luckily I'll be able to atleast drive it and lock it for the night (have my fridge, powertank, etc in the trunk) so thats nice.

Yeah. It could be. I pulled the door card off for an adjustment/repair on the locks on the D1, and when it went back together something wasn't aligned right so the lock stuck. Once I readjusted the lock it worked fine.


It could also be the solenoid failing to provide enough torque to "tip" the latch over, which may result in a failed locking state. You could pull the door card and see how things are moving in there.

just lube the door latch mechanism in the jam of the door & that will help... also spray wd40 into the key hole on the handle

 

If that does not cure it! replace door solenoid

Jared and I had so many problem with RedRover's locks that I think he finally just pulled the fuse and we lock each door individually now.

I did that, and it made things worse. WD-40 caused dust to stick in my latch like glue. I would use some sort of grease, or simply go with a good cleaning.

Given the option, I'd prefer my RRC have manual seats and locks.  I'm OK with power windows though.   Less weight, less complexity, less to go wrong.

Agree - WD40 is NOT a lubricant, and will leave a sticky residue.

Was designed for water displacement (hence the name)
