Question about 2005 Dodge Ram
The lock does not work on the drivers side door....all other electric locks work....this door will open manually but stays in the locked position. What could be causing this ?
This is what I found out. The problem was with the power lock portion of the part (siezed). It is also sealed and unserviceable. The good news is that the part was in stock at the dealer for around 65.00. Actually pretty amazing considering how many parts there are to the device. After disassembling the door three times (once to diagnose, once to take apart and disable the power lock function, and one last time to swap out mechanism) I became fairly quick at it. If you have this problem, just go buy the part and don't mess around. Oh yeah-you'll need a torx bit to get started.....

The door latch mechanism has to be replaced. the door panel has to be removed and the part has to be unbolted and the wires disconnected.pretty simple if you take your time and and have the right tools.
