Truck door won't open

1988 chevy 1500 silverado 4x4 350.  Went to go unlock the door and open it and it wouldn't open.  No tension on the door handles.  feels like a rod came off.
Is there any way I could shimmy the door open to get the panel off?
thanks

How do I unlock my 2008 Chevy Silverado Truck?


Slim Jims won't work on the door. There is a tool called The BigEasy unlock tool. You sneak it between the jam and door frame and hook it on the lock knob and pull it to unlock the door or push the power lock button to unlock the door.

Unlock a 2008 Chevy Silverado


This year model truck WILL allow the truck to be locked if the key fob is left inside, but not while fully engaged in the ignition. If you do not have Onstar service you will have to use a long piece of thin metal, possibly a straightened clothes hanger and work it into the upper part of the driver or passenger side door at the top rear corner. Be careful not to tear the door seal. If it's long enough to reach the power door lock button press it to open the door. If not then fashion a small hook on the end and hook the manual door lock release. There is just enough of a lip to hook on to. Hope this helps.

My door handle wont open my door on the drivers side. I have to roll down my window to open the door from the outside latch. Is it repairable, or do I have to replace any parts?


I have shaved door handles on a 2000 chevy silverado and the drivers side door just recently stopped opening it seems like its completely locked out and the door is closed so i cannot get to the bolts of the latch assembly when i hit the unlock button it unlocks half way and when you go to open the door it relocks itself even if you manually try to unlock the door and hold the lock forward it still wont open

Remote Door Lock/Unlock will not work.


At first look, I would have guessed that your battery in the door opener was dead, but that is not the case. I suggest driving to a nearby Chevy dealer and ask one of the salesman if he/she can help. They have always been helpful to me. If not try another one as they are in business to sell not only cars, but service also. They will be your best bet to fixing it. :D

Power locks and mirrors out. Driver power window out.


Your chevy uses two fuses for the system. The power lock actuators are on the 15 amp fuse inside the truck. The fuse for the switches (locks and mirrors) are under the hood. For 99 to 04 (I think those are the years) there is a TSB on replacing the 3 amp fuse under the hood with a 5 amp fuse because this is a well known problem of having these blow.

Your drivers side window is a different issue. If the rest are working your problem is in the motor or getting power to the motor. The wires that go from the body to the door often crack and break with the opening and closing of the door.
