You'll need a new clip and to take the door panel apart to fix this one. Remove the door panel, with the appropriate screwdriver(s) and a door pad tool. Make sure the window's rolled up. Then push the lock in and slide in the clip behind it. Put the door panel back together. That's all there is to it.

1999 ford Taurus knob won't push down far enough to lock, it pops up instead of locking

The screw you used is too long and binding the lock rod. Take the screw out and retest. If the lock works use a shorter screw.

Passenger side door on 1998 olds 88 locked and cant get it open even with key

Doubtful. I'd recommend a good locksmith to come pop the lock for you fron the window channel. If you know what to look for, just roll down the window, find the lock linkage, and pop the lock yourself.

There may be two items to check
1. there may be an additionl set of keys in the car, if so the little clicker on the key will not allow you to lock the doors unless the motor is on

2. one of the doors may not be completly closed.

Driver door electric lock not working

lock solenoid is either bad or disconnected.
to check -- open the door and when you press the door lock button, can you hear the solenoid popping ?? if you hear the solenoid popping then the linkage most likely has a broken clip and needs to be re-attached using a new clip. but if you do not hear the solenoid then the problem is either a bad solenoid, a loose wire or a bad door lock switch. if you remove the door panel - use a volt meter to check for voltage and trace the problem.

I can not lock my doors using the lock button on the door. But I can lock the doors by using the clicker on my key chain. Where do I start looking to fix this?

The switches sometimes wear out. You can replace it yourself . They pop out and unplug. The plug in and pop in new one. small hands are helpful

Need to remove inside door panel on drivers side 1999 chevy silverado z-71 3 door new body style

just pop out the triangle piece from the top at the top front of the door panel with a flat head screwdriver. Then simply pop out the door lock cover from the aft side and the door handle cover from the aft side as well. Then pop up your cap containing the auto door locks and windows and disconnect the cannon plugs. Then just remove 2 screws (1 from under the door lock/window cap and one just insde the door handle itself. You'll then life up and towards you to remove the panel. Don't pull it too far out because you'll still need to disconnect the speaker cannon plug and pull out the door open light at the bottom aft of the panel. You can then set the door panel off to the side.

The remote unlock for my 2000 Jetta no longer works on the driver door. It unlocks the other doors and pops the trunk. Is it the lock? I have to use the key to unlock the drivers door.

First thing to do is check for a burned out fuse. If that is not the problem, then check for a defective relay. A lot of newer cars, including VW's, use relays for several things, including the power door locks. If you have the owners manual, the location of the fuse and relay box should be in there. If not, try to find a repair manual, or an on-line repair manual such as All-data or Mitchell on-line. If the problem is not the relay, then the problem is either going to be in the control module that recieves the signal from your remote and sends the command to lock or unlock your doors, an open in the wiring, or both lock solenoids went bad on you. As a reminder, always use caution when working on electrical systems, ans accidently shorting out something could cause a lot of other problems.

How do you remove interior door trim on 2001 GMC Yukon?

There are two Bolds kinding Behind the Handle on the door.
One under the Lock cover ( the little square one) that you move to manually lock and unlock side is red the other is black.
then You remove that little panel with the panel by the door handel ( the one that pops open the door) and basiclly take a soft plastic Wedge and stick it between the door and frame. Dont forget to pop up the window and door lock switch with a soft screw driver. And disconnec the harnesses( dont worry they all are Sizes diffrent) so they all go ack in the their own place. Then Pop off the door panel sofftly if it is your first time. bc Gm is Cheap and things break.

Take off your door panel, find the small rod that is connected to the door lock itself (the part that actually shows if the door is locked or not) There should be an actuator of some sort connected to the small rod that pushes back and forth when you hit the lock button. This may have popped off or is loose/bent...

Or, There may be module inside the door that controls your locks either way, pop off your door panel and see what you got!

You will need to use a Pair of Vice Grips on the Lever While Opening the Door with the Handle at the Same time. It should Pop Right Back into Place.
