Question about 2003 Dodge Neon
I locked my doors when I arrived at the store. When I was leaving I tried to unlock my door and the lock wouldn't budge on either side. It opened my trunk, so i had my friend reach through and unlock my back driver side. Even inside I couldn't pull the pin up, or pull the handle on either front door. I tried to start it , but it wouldn't turn over. Until now it has ran and started fine. Your advise is appreciated. Thank You.
-Dominick I lock my car when i park at night, when i get there in the morning i discovered that i cannot unlock the driver side, i have to unlock it throught the passanger's side. 2003 Dodge neon
Hello, you could pick up one of those little containers of lock deicer and lubricant and spray it in the key lock. From the description the key lock works intermetiatly. After you put the spray in work the key in and out a few times and work at turning the lock. While your trying to turn the key try moving it in and out slightly. Your key lock might just be freezing up from lack of use.

Sounds like the link rod to the latch are jammed in the locked position by something inside the door or it came off. Any way, you have to remove the door panel to get access to it.

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!!

Open the trunk. Take out the trunk lid light - take the bulb out of the fixture. Place a 12 volt battery in the trunk. Take an alligator clip jumper wire - connect one end to the negative terminal of the battery and the other end of the jumper wire to the car chassis - make sure it is a good connection and is not on a painted surface - I place mine on a bolt on the rear light panel. Take another alligator clip jumper wire and connect one end to the 12 volt positive terminal and connect the other end to the short end of the light connectors (there are two connectors for the light - one is short and one is long). This should give you enough voltage to unlock the doors. I had to figure this out and have used it twice on my BMW.
