    I have a 03 Silverado that I have lost complete electrical power in the passenger side door. No power locks, windows, or mirror. The keyless entry does not work either. I have went thru both fuse boxes with no success. Ever happened to anyone? Or does anyone have a suggestion?:confused:

    I tried that with no luck. I'm starting to wonder if it may be a module. Does anyone know if there is a module that controls all the locks, windows, and mirrors? And where might it be located. In the driver door possibly? It must be tied in with the keyless entry. Usually the radio stays on when you shut off the truck, and that is gone also. Same with working the windows.

    do you have power in the driver door? did you mess with anything prior to losing power or did it just quit?

    I have seen a fuse come loose on an 03 and cause the same problem, I have put mirrors on an 04 and had the clip come lose and cause no power to the driver door, and then there has also been a truck that had a loose harnes down on the floor by the brake controller hook up

    I still have power on the driver side. Cant control passenger side from driver door. I didnt touch a thing prior. It just up and quit. Lucky window was up! I have the power fold option also on the mirror. I use that daily to get in and out of my garage. Power lock on driver side works.

    i would say double check your fuses again, make sure they are all tight

    Will do. Thanks for the help. I will also check what you mentioned. If I'm still stumped, what is the best way to contact Philbilly2?

    Is there a module that controls all that stuff? Keyless, windows, mirrors, locks, radio delay on shutoff. Weird how all that went at the same time.

    last time I was looking at my fuses/relays, there is separate ones for each door.

    yeah, there are seprate relays for the right and left doors. I would lean toward a bad connection before a relay. not sure though, let me go pull some fueses and realys on my truck and see what happens to see if I can create the same problem.

    This afternoon I looked up under the dash at a fuse box. Found a big metal cased fuse labeled RT DOOR. 25 amp. Auto parts stores don't carry that. Sounds like a dealership part. I had a normal fuse and tried to stick it in there just to complete the circuit to see if i got any power. Nothing.

    If it's the kind of big fuse that is under the electronic center under the hood you should be able to find one ....I know the Farm&Fleet we have near by cares them ....
    Try Advance Auto,Auto Zone,or O'Reilly's......

    Try switching that fuse with another one like it if there are 2 in the fuse box. Or I think it might be controlled by the body control module.

    I finally got a hold of a gm mechanic this morning. He is pretty confident that it is the module in the passanger side door. He says it is common. Said they are pretty salty. And the key fobs will need reprogrammed. He told me to try and tap on it to see if I could get it going again. It happens sometimes. But more than likely, it will need replaced. Got to take it to the dealer. I'm going to make an appointment this week. I will post back with the results. Thanks for everyones help.:)
