View Full Version : Driver Side Door Lock??

My driver's side door lock doesn't work! The keyless doesn't work on it, and I have tried using my key and that doesn't work on it either! The key used to not turn at all, but it turns and when I lift the door handle, nothing. I have even tried to unlock it manually from the inside and that doesn't work!!! The passenger side door works fine though.

Has this happened to anyone? If it has, what was the problem?
If this hasn't happened to anyone, does anyone have a clue what could be wrong?

I think something is blocking the lock mechanism? Not sure though...

I would suggest taking that door panel off and looking at the lock and handle mechanisms. I am not sure what would have caused it but its possible something came unhooked or something is binding.

have you made sure someone hasnt tried to break into your car lately? sometimes they use screwdrivers to pry on the lock area/assembly and if something got bent up in there the lock assembly will no longer work.

Just a long shot guess.

Well...I got it looked at, and the guy said the actuator is bad.

Is the actuator electric? I ask this b/c I hear clicking in the door. Does that sound right? I might try to use a slim jim and try to unlock it.
