How do you remove the interior front door panel on a 2006 Cadillac STS


they aren't easy. hidden screws where the handle is inside and at door handle and sometimes behind the red light or reflector at the back of the door. after you find all of the screws you usually have to pick up on the door panel. and I have seen techs with lots of experience have problems getting these door panels off. so good luck.

05 sts front doors will not open unless you use the key but when it rains the door will open without the key


that is the door lock actuator. must have a bad connection at actuator or a short in wiring to it that the moister helps the voltage move through the circuit.

It actually sounds like the micro switch in the drivers door that reads the key fob is bad, if the key works and the fob works on the other doors and the trunk. You will most likely need to have the door handle replaced, they're not very expensive by themselves but it can be a lot of work.

Uninstall Garage Door Opener


You do not have to remove the garage door opener. Just open it up and change the code inside so it no longer opens your own garage door. The owner's manual will tell you how to do it.

Hello: On the rear bumper, driver side lower portion you will see a square which you can flip open with the key you have. Once open you will see a lock cylinder, insert the key and turn. That will open the trunk. Inside the trunk you will see a handle, pull it and it will open the drivers door. That should do it.

CAN'T OPEN DRIVERS SIDE DOOR WITH REMOTE OR HANDLE


Do you mean you can't unlock it or you can't open it? Does the inside handle open it? How many miles are on the vehicle? How long have you owned it and how long have you had this problem? Once I have more information I can assist you further.
Thank you,
Lee

2006 STS drivers door won't open. Passenger doors opens as should. Inside drivers handle does open door. Charged key fob and that doesnt help.


something came off inside your door,remove the panel and look for a plastic rod connector either off or broken.If it is off go get a new one their very cheap.
The other thing is the door lock actuator could be bad,you will know when you get inside,work the all the electric do dads and watch the motor react.

There is NOT a mechanical connection to the outside door handles on the front doors. There is an electronic "door popping solenoid" This is a electronic problem. I think there was a recall on this.
