I think I can help you with this problem I need to know if the power lock on the drivers door makes a sound when you try to lock it with the switch. The are notorious for going out. It is most probably the actuator inside the door and will require removal of the inner panel. These are held into place with several screws and plastic clips. I hope this will get you started in the right direction, it's been a while since I have to change one of these but I beleive new the actuator is around 70.00 or you can purchase on from a wrecking yard online at, this is a great sight for a good price on used parts. Good luck and I hope I have helped.

What kind of problem are you having ? explain ! Can't open door power locks , inside an outside handles do nothing , can you unlock with key or key fob . Or is it a door latch problem ? If you can unlock the door but when you pull the handles ,an the door doesn't open , that's a latch problem . An that could be a tough one to fix. You would need to get the inside door panel off to get at the latch inside !

How can a door panel be removed from the drivers side for a 97 Buick park ave if the door won't open from the inside or out for the handle to be replaced.

Sounds like your latch locked up. Ok this is how I do it up to you to do it the same way. I lay on the seat while somebody else is on the outside pulling on the latch and door while you inside kick the door as hard as you can as close as you can where the latch is more then once. Good luck.

My Buick Park ave 1994 My fuel door wont close

either of 2 issues...
latch is bent and needs to be straightened to the original position
the cable that runs from inside the car to the door latch is stuck and needs to be lubricated. Suggest Liquid Wrench initially to remove corrosion then any oil after a few days

I installed a new door handle on my 2000 park ave and the door still doesn't open. is it the door latch now?

In order to put your new door handle on your vehicle you have to take the inner panel off, then disconnect the screws and pins to replace. Be sure to put everything back the way it was so you don't get any rattles.-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

No Power to door locks or trunk latch buick park ave

Depending on the year, the door lock relay may be under the driver's seat. You may need to get a shop manual to test the circuits. I don't think the DIY books have those diagrams.

Windows and locks don't work BUT THE DRIVER'S DOOR in 1999park av

You may have gotten water and/or ice down into the controls in the door. Replacing expensive (several hundred dollars) modules might solve the problem. When the weather wams up it might go away on its own. I avoid opening my windows in the winter now that I know my Park Avenue is susceptible to the problem.
