Question about 2007 Volvo S40 2.4i Sedan
I can not unlock the door. the lock is in the up position and does not unlock. i try they key and it still will not unlock. the key turns but does unlock the door
I don't envy you; I don't see you curing this without disassembling the door panel. Linkage has broken or separated and there is no way to cure the problem without gaining access to the linkage.

Which is it, 98 Eclipse, or 06 Impala? Either way, your door lock actuator is stuck in the locked position either electrically or mechaically. The way to check this is to remove the door panel and unplug the actuator. If door lock can now be moved then you have an electrical problem (faulty door lock switch or faulty door lock module). If you still cannot unlock door then actuator is mechanically bad and must be replace (usually the case)

you need to spend some time triing the best you can to get the top of the door panel open a bit to see what is broken inside, most likely a clip.The other thing to try is a slim jim to get the door open then repair the door lock.

I had the same problem. I locked and unlocked the car with the engine run several time utilizing the dashboard lock button. That fix my problem.

you need to take the door panel off, there is a rod in there that connects to the lock cylinder it frequently pops off, there is a little plastic clip that should hold it on to the cylinder it may be broken!!

Tips for a great answer:
Driver door lock switch
Front passenger door lock switch
Door lock actuators in each of the doors
Door lock system fuse into the BCM (BCM D 25A fuse)
Door Lock Operation
When the BCM detects a transition of either of the door lock switches to the LOCK position, it switches the door lock actuator lock control circuit to voltage. Since the lock actuator unlock control circuits are at ground potential within the BCM, the door lock actuator motors transition to the Lock position.
Driver Door Unlock Operation
When the BCM detects a transition of either of the door lock switches to the UNLOCK position, it switches the driver door lock actuator unlock control circuit to voltage. Since the door lock actuator lock control circuit is at ground potential within the BCM, the LF door lock actuator motor transitions to the Unlock position.
The driver door lock actuator unlock control circuit is a dedicated control circuit used only for the driver door lock actuator motor. This is done so that the driver door may be unlocked by itself using a keyless entry transmitter or an automatic door unlock function (if programmed).
Passenger Door Unlock Operation
When the BCM detects a transition of either of the door lock switches to the UNLOCK position, it switches the door lock actuator unlock control circuits to voltage. Since the door lock actuator lock control circuit is at ground potential within the BCM, the passenger door lock actuator motors transition to the Unlock position.
The door lock actuator unlock control circuits are dedicated control circuits used only for the passenger door lock actuator motors. This is done so that the driver door may be unlocked seperate from the passenger doors using a keyless entry transmitter or an automatic door unlock function (if programmed). This video on testing computer controlled door locks on a Subaru , doesn't matter . test yours same way > The BCM controls your door locks .
Are all of the power door locks inoperative from both door lock switches?
