2014+ GM Door Lock Actuator Motors - Click the Pic ! has been repairing the faulty GM door lock actuators since 2010. As many of you already know, the door lock actuators in your 2014+ GM vehicle are like the previous years : very unreliable. Most units suffer motor failures which can make locking and unlocking the vehicle very cumbersome. Our new motor is a reliable high torque design with factory correct wiring inputs. Our motor has passed rigorous 35,000 lock/unlock cycle testing runs conducted continuously over the span of 2 full weeks.

This motor is sold by itself and requires the re-use of the factory plastic worm gear. This worm gear can easily be removed from the old motor and placed onto our replacement motor. No bonding or press fit is required. Removal / installation of this motor is much easier than in the pre 2014 models. The actuators can be easily disassembled and the old motor can easily be lifted out of the unit. There is no drilling or tapping required on these 2014+ units.

There is absolutely NO reason to buy a complete GM unit to fix your door locks ! It is very easy to take apart these 2014+ actuators and replace the only discrepant part - the faulty motor. These units are assembled using simple torx screws and come apart very quickly to replace the motor.

Applicable Models (likely many more, we will keep adding to this list) :
2014+ Silverado and Sierra (1500, 2500, 3500)
2015+ Cadillac ATS, CTS, CT6, XTS, Escalade
2015+ Tahoe, Suburban, Yukon
2015+ Colorado, Canyon
2015+ Impala, Cruze, and Volt
2015+ Buick Envision

Actuator Part Numbers (that we know of, we will be adding to this list!) :
13507156 13597536 13598089 13597799 13507154 13501178 13586151 13592288
