RKE module
 
The power door locks arent working on my 2005 Convertible. The horn chirps when locking, and the lights come on when unlocking, but locks nothing. Can here the module clicking.
I tried a RKE module from a 2001, but no difference. Disconnected battery for awhile too. I have a 2005 sedan and was wondering if that would work, or is it a special RKE module for the convertibles. Dont want to pull the other car apart to try it if its not the right one.

If you haven't checked the 20 amp fuse # 3 (door locks) in your in dash fuse box give it a peek. It might just be the fuse not the remote keyless entry module.

First thing I did. Fuse is good.
Besides, you can hear the module clicking? Horn chirps at locking, lights on at unlocking.
Everything works as it should, except the power locks dont work??

The information below is for a 2001 Pt Cruiser but might be helpful.

The fuse block feeds power to the RKEM from 3 fuses. The RKEM controls both alarm and door lock functions. The lock buttons on the door panel do not connect directly to the lock motors. Everything goes through the RKEM. The Remote Keyless Entry Module is located under the dash. You should verify that the correct voltage inputs are on the corresponding pins. The ground circuit should also be verified prior to replacing the RKEM.

Fuse 13, 10amps, delivers constant power to pin #9.
Fuse 3, 20 amps, delivers constant power to pin #3.
Fuse 10, 10amps, deliver switched ignition power to pin #22.
Pins 8 &12 are ground wire

I would suggest checking all three fuses first.

Here's the location of the other fuses under the hood.
Do your doors unlock with the door switch?

No. The only way to lock and unlock the doors is with the key, or pushing down the plunger on the door.

If your electric door lock switches don't activate the door locks that's probably pointing to a bad fuse. Possibly one of those other fuses ptcruisersteve suggested might be bad.

I actually had similar problems with bad fuses after a repair was done by a clown of a mechanic who lazily swapped some fuses in the PDC instead of using new ones. Open up the power distribution center and check the fuses. I've pictured it's location below.
