Sounds like you need to replaced the latch in the door. or like my 06 cobalt lt the door was bouncing and not closing all the way, or not opening. they cleaned my latch and i havent had a problem since, but that latch in the door could be your problem.

I hve a 2007 nissan altma and the front passenger door wont open. I replaced the locking assembly, and as soon as i closed the door it locked again. When I press the unlock button it moves but nothing...


sounds like the actuator in the door that locks and unlocks the door is jammed or too weak to move the lock assembly to fully lock/unlock positions. the linkage may be in a bind that can cause the same problem.

not a hard job but the inside door panel needs to be removed. with the panel off you'll be able to see the linkage & reconnect it. there are small clips at the ends of the link rods to hold in place.

My 05 cobalts driver door is stuck shut how do i get it open to fix it?


If you can't open it from inside or out the actuator rod is either broken or out of place, Sometimes the lock sticks. try locking/unlocking to see if it frees up. If not it's going to require removing door panel and reattaching rod.

opening the door should always cause the car to chime at you so that shouldnt be a problem. as far as water goes it could have shorted out the lock/unlock button causeing a blown fuse, that would be my first guess.

CHevy cobalt door locks- lock and unlock while I am driving had key fob reprogrammed and it was ok for about two hours and started all over again. What can the problem be?


Could be a problem in the shiftier. Your car doors lock automatically when you put the car in drive. They unlock when you put the car in park. The switch located in the shiftier can go bad causing the locks to randomly lock and unlock. Also, this can cause the key to get stuck in the ignition.

Locks unlocking while driving.


Has the switches on your driver or passanger side gotten wet anytime lately? I had to replace the switch that you actually click to unlock and lock because it had gotten wet and my car would set it's alarm after waiting 30 seconds when you would try to open the door. Changing this is an easy and cheap fix. I hope it helps!

Lock wont open!


You have to remove the door panel and manually move the lock release rods inside of the door it could prove to be vary difficult. A body shop is the next step if this proves worthless.

Keyless entry stopped working on 05 cobalt now i have to unlock door with the key and when i do that the alarm goes off. Help


Lock all the doors from the inside (with all the doors closed), unlock your driver's door by manually lifting the lock, then press it back down after you are out - this will prevent the alarm from sounding when you use the key to unlock the door.
