      Use a different hardware screw or add a washer on it. I hope that will give you the right idea.

      Your regulator comes with a black & red wiring connector and I couldn't find any window relay applied to the circuitry at under the body-interior page. I will try the power switch.I hope that willl give you the idea.

      1. Remove the plastic panel on the inside of the van. You need to remove the handle and several screws on the perimeter of the door.

      2. Disconnect the interior door lights by gently pulling the wiring harness (two of these).

      3. Looking at the door from the interior, there is a small electronic plunger mechanism on the right side with an "accordion" (this is the electric lock). There is a rod that goes from the to the middle of the door, just above the lock mechanism. Another rod goes from the key lock to the latch. This rod, threaded on one end, snaps into a small bracket on the latch. It may need to be snapped back in. There may also be a rubbery/tar-like sticker near the locking mechanisms that can be removed (it can interfere with some of the moving parts).

      4. Manually operate the plunger on the electric lock several times using pliers. Mine was extremely stiff. It should move the rod at least a full inch.

      5. Spray lubricant on the latch, the back of the key lock, and the back of the exterior handle. Also spray lubricant into the key lock itself (where the key goes). Do NOT spray lubricant on the electronic lock mechanism or plunger.

      6. Just above the latch, there is a small hole (only about 1/8" around). Carefully and liberally spray lubricant into that hole in every direction (this is where the rods from the key lock, electric lock, and latch meet). There is a white plastic post that comes out through another nearby hole. Spray lubricant liberally into that hole, too.

      7. Again, manually operate the plunger on the electric lock several times using pliers. It should be considerably smoother to operate.

      8. Put your key into the key lock and pull it out several times.

      9. Spray lubricant into the key lock again, then carefully operate the lock with the key. If it didn't work or was stiff before, it should operate much more smoothly. Operate the electric locks several times.

      10. When operating the lock, you should see the plunger on the electric lock move to its extents (at least an inch). Watch it when using a key and using the electric lock.

      11. Check the movements of the rod and plunger when operating the lock, and the movements of the latch when operating the handle (when unlocked). If anything is still really stiff, use some more lubricant and operate the lock and handle again.

      12. When reassembling the door panel, remember to plug in the two wiring harnesses for the interior lights.

      its having some kind of a delayed response have someone else turn the key while they are doing that check for voltage at the starter. if there is voltage immediately when they turn the key then it could be the starter, if the voltage doesn't get there right away it could be the ignition switch or a relay. Checking a wiring diagram to see what the voltage flows through will help alot.

    Where is the horn located
    • Ladiesman217

      Right side of vehicle parallel to A/C condenser, before you replace the horn make sure it doesnt work, because it could be any number of things, the clockspring behind the steering wheel which contains all the wiring to the steering wheel, the horn fuse/relay, or the horn switch itself.

      Maybe not. You must have all modules scanned for fault codes including the security module.
