Try spraying the heck out of it with penetrating lube or similar, it may be seized. Tis the season.

No electric power to left door Fuse and relay are good


Check the wire lume that runs from the body to the door inside a rubber bellow. the wires can break from constant moving and I'm not sure what vehicle you have, but this is a defect for a few vehicles out there the wire can be to short in some cases from cost saving manufacturing. It may be necessary to remove the door panel and remove the harness through the wire opening to be able to move the boot far enough to access the broken wire or even just to check it in some cases.
How I like to repair it, is to put a new wire through the entire pivot point and join it inside the door and body where the wire does not move constantly.

Hope this helps

2000 cadillac deville driver side won't open with the key


1) Key turns but dose not unlock door. This means that the rod that goes to the back of the lock has came off. This also means that is the reason door is not unlocking with the remote as it pops the lock rod inside the door which pushes the lock open.
2) Key does not turn lock at all but works passengers side door. This means that the locks has been changed in the door, but that doesn't sound like the problem as you say the remote doesn't open the drivers side door so more than likely the rod has came off the back of the lock

There is a control module in each door with connectors. I have already had one where the wiring in the connector was bad. This takes some troubleshooting, but sometimes moving things around while trying to run the windows will should you where the loose connection is.

I have a 2001 Dodge Caravan. This back door on the drivers side will not unlock. It started this winter and we thought the lock was frozen, but now that it is 65 out the door will still not unlock. What...


you will have to pull the inner panel off the door to look inside the panels to inspect the door latch to see if it may be seized or the lock mechanism is not moving due to broken parts,if the lock is not moving far enough you can reach in and manually unlock it.if the latch is seized you can spray it with penetrating oil and operate the release handle and try to force the latch open with a screw driver or something to open it.once open you can remove the latch and soak it in oil to try and free it up if not then just replace it.

Both door locks do not work properly. I can only open the drivers side door from the inside. And the passengers side door will not open at all. This is on a 1999 Ford Explorer Sport.


Do any of the door handles inside or out feel sloppy (when you pull on them does it feel like there is nothing connected to them)?

If so that the levers on the latches are probably rusted up and sticking. Say for example the outside door handle lever that is attached to the door latch is stuck half way in the open position it will not allow the door lock mechanism to lock or unlock. The door will still latch and stay closed because the lever will not be stuck far enough to release the latch mechanism from hold on to the striker.

I have had pretty good luck removing the door latch (the part that actually holds the door closed) and soaking in penetrating lube and working all the levers until they move freely.

As far as the door that doesn't open I suspect it is stuck in the lock position and one of the handle mechanisms is in the partial up position. Again the symptom would be a sloppy door handle. That lever will need to be put back in its normal resting position before the door can be unlocked. This can be done with a slim jim. Once you have the door panel apart on the door that still opens you will be able to see the parts you need to move. You can then use that knowledge to move those parts on the other door that doesn't open.

If you don't have any experience with a lockout kit (i suspect most people do not) that that's the best way I can describe how you can do this yourself.

Sunburn 1994 handle wont work


Yes, Usually If you pull inside the lock area incorrectly, it will cause the rod to detach from the door latch. The door panel will have to come off and the rod, located and reattached. The retaining clip probably is damaged so inspect it and you should be able to find a replacement at NAPA or local dealership.
