After the peons at best buy told me it was the pontiac relay that was out (i figured it was my avital keyless entry thingy), i replaced it today. There were two in the car, i removed each and inserted the new one, and it made no difference.

When i push the lock button, i hear the chimes, and i hear the relay click. But, nothing happens. The doors dont lock. All 4 door lock motors wouldnt have gone bad at the same time... any thoughts? Its not the fuse either, checked that.

first off never ever ever ever go buy what the bestbuy/circuit city guys tell you,secondly sounds to me like something isn't hooked up correctly thats the only explanation i can come up with

Any idea what that something would be?

unplug the power door lock harness at the end of the latch inside the door .. then use a digital voltmeter and see if you are getting power to the plug.. if no power.. then maybe bad ground somewhere? or it could be anything
