Post-Ravelco Door Lock Fail - Need Advice

Nuts! Had a Ravelco system installed in Colorado. Now my door locks wonít open with the door switch. At the same time, the 12V outlet behind the driver seat went dead. My initial guess is that Ravelco shorted something out during the install, so Iím thinking fuses first. I pulled the fuse the manual indicates for door locks but itís intact. Before I go crawling in to test every other fuse, can anybody offer a likely culprit to look at?

Darnedest thing... yesterday, after installing a needed new starter battery, the locks started to all lock, as usual, on start-up, and unlock when I opened the driver door. It did that for an hour of errands and now isnít. In neither case can I get the driver door automatic lock/unlock to work. Interestingly, my after-market alarm fob will arm the alarm but will no longer lock/unlock the doors.

Unfortunate for sure - several threads out there on the lock gremlins , do a search to access them - unfortunately the resolves seem to be all over the board (mine were fixed when I replaced both starting batteries, one was almost dead & the other at about 60%).

Start with these:

Thanks for the reply, Twoxentrix. I've read through those gremlin posts and will check out the possible solutions.

But I'm still hoping someone will have some input about why the 12V outlet behind the driver's seat went dead. May have something to do with the door lock gremlins but maybe not?

All I know is, it's driving me nuts. And I can't charge my Dometic battery!

I don't have a electrical diagram for 2014, but 2010 show that auxiliary power point rear to be fused at Battery Junction Box F66 20 Amp fuse. I would check that first,

Thanks, Greg. I’ll check that one. I just ordered an electrical manual on EBay. Maybe that’ll help too.

By simply looking at a fuse, you can't always tell if it's blown. It's easiest to use one of the testers with a ground wire and a pointed probe. Ground the lead with the alligator clip, touch the positive terminal of the battery to make sure you have a good ground, then touch both sides of the fuse, it should light on each side. The little blade fuses have accessible metal contacts on top,one on each side. When you touch one, the light should light up. If only one side lights the light, the fuse is blown. Even if you don't know which fuse it is, you can check them all this way in about a minute. Some won't have power on either side though, until you turn on the key or some accessory starts up. You might also call the Revelco installer to see what input they may have.

Thanks for the info. I’ll add that to my lengthening check list. I spoke with the installer the first day. His response: “we don’t touch any of those things during the install. recommend checking the fuses.” Ya.
