Question about 1997 Cadillac Catera
97 Catera-The only lock on the whole car is on the drivers side door and when I turn the key in either directions, the door wont unlock. The key will turn clockwise but the lock wont turn counterclockwise. I didn't want to force the key in hopes that it wouldn't break off in the door but I don't know what else to do. Its been cold lately so I don't know if its frozen or if it runs on the cars battery and the battery died. Please Help.
The locking solenoid could be sticking up or down due to the cold or could be going bad. if possible take off the door panel a watch the solenoid as you have someone operate the key and with the remote.
