    I have a 2007 Buick Lacrosse and the driver door won't open. Last week the same thing occurred and it spontaneously opened in a parking lot (dog could have gotten out!) It worked fine for a few days and I drove about 3 miles and parked the car, it wouldn't open when I returned. FRUSTRATING!

2006 buick lucerne back doors won't open

My friend just had this problem and he reached in and pulled the inside door handle back as far as it would go, and then let it go, allowing it to 'snap' back. For some reason this fixed it. We have no idea why. By doing this on one door, both rear door locks freed up and the rear locks are now working. Before, both rear locks were stuck and you could not open the doors from the inside nor the outside. Not sure why it works, but maybe it will work for you!

The driver side door locks and unlocks but it wont open at all

Looks like the lock itself has a problem in this that's why it wont open or there's something that makes the door stuck even though you lock/unlock it, It's best to replace the side door lock immediately. or better check if there's any elements that are inside the side door that makes the door jammed.

Can not open trunk on buick lacrosse remote wont do it and there is no key lock on trunk to use

There may be a vertical switch on the drives door to control the locks. Hold down the upmost position of the switch for 5 seconds. This trigers the trunk to open.
Good luck.
