« on: February 23, 2017, 12:52:19 AM »

I don't know if they are same circuit, but first make sure you haven't just pressed the lock button on drivers door switch pad, as that locks back window switches. If that's not the issue, it's more likely the rear switches themselves. Pop em out and try cleaning the contacts.

Not sure if you are replying to me, but I didn't mean door locks. The button I mean is at the front of the window switch panel in the drivers door, marked lock. It's only function is to lock rear windows so kids don't fiddle. Makes no difference if doors are unlocked or not.

No problem. I reckon it was two years before I realised what that switch does. ;D
