Yes,the lock mechanism has either gone bad and needs replaced or is disconnected from the system.Whether it be accidentally disconnected while repairs being done or wire fell loose,pull the door panel and check it.If connected and has power when checked with a test light,it should work.If has power and no action,replace it.

SOURCE: driver side door lock

Pull the door panel & replace the electronic lock solenoid.
Not easy, but this is what you need to do.

SOURCE: Drivers side rear door lock inoperative

You need to replace the electric solenoid/actuator for the door lock. The door panel pulls off very easily.

SOURCE: driver's door lock will not open by key or electronic fob

I was able to determine if you move the inside door handle toward the front of the car, then you could remove the door panel. However, it takes a little force to pot out the plastic clips, but if you work around the outside by appling pressure with a thin tool, such as a putty knife it will pot out.

My problem was a small yellow plastic part that connects the outside and inside door handle rods was broken.

So I plan to replace the part and see if that fixes the provlem. If so I can save over $340 dealer repair costs.

SOURCE: Need to know how to adjust the door auto lock function.

Not an easy fix! The door lock function was designed to lock doors only. you can however, disable this lock feature by simply cutting the light blue automatic door lock signal wire on the 6-wire harness plug connector located on the chime module (In component center).

SOURCE: my prius rear door latch will not function

if you use a phillips screwdriver and put it in the gap where the latch on the hatch holds onto the anchor plate, while pulling down on the screw driver, press or pull the door release. this should release the latch.

Hope this is of some help.

Get Door To Open With Dead Battery So I can pop the Hood Switch


I imagine the obvious answer is to use a key in the door lock cylinder. The reason you have done this is because there is no door lock cylinder! You only have a fob is my guess, that electronically opens the doors. Dead battery..and the fob no longer works. Don't worry, examine your fob and there should be a way to open it. Carefully open the fob and surprise! There is a key inside of it! Now take that key and there ahould be a key lock cylinder above your rear license plate. You should be able to open your rear hatch. Now somewhere to the drivers side in the rear compartment there should be some sort of pull you can use which will open the drivers door. Hope that helps you out!

My Prius will not lock with remote control. Locks apply and reopen immediately in my prius


Check for one of the door-open switches to be misadjusted. If the door ajar lamp is lit, the remote locking system will not work. Also check that a second key-fob is not inside the car. The smart locking system will not allow you to accidentally lock the key fob inside the car and will cycle the lock back to the unlocked position immediately if the fob is sensed by the inside-the-car sensor(s).

How program the key remot


Keyfob remote reprogramming is not very difficult but on some cases it can be done by dealer service tools.If the remote s faulty then keyfob will not get programmed.Insert the key in ignition.Turn the key to on position,and cycle the key three times off-on-off-on-off-on.Then with the keyfob remote select your remote and then try to operate the vehicle with remote.These is just the basic procedure,but sometimes it will not help.
On that case dealer is the only option.

2006 buick lucerne back doors won't open


My friend just had this problem and he reached in and pulled the inside door handle back as far as it would go, and then let it go, allowing it to 'snap' back. For some reason this fixed it. We have no idea why. By doing this on one door, both rear door locks freed up and the rear locks are now working. Before, both rear locks were stuck and you could not open the doors from the inside nor the outside. Not sure why it works, but maybe it will work for you!

Chevy Impala Door lock issue


Which is it, 98 Eclipse, or 06 Impala? Either way, your door lock actuator is stuck in the locked position either electrically or mechaically. The way to check this is to remove the door panel and unplug the actuator. If door lock can now be moved then you have an electrical problem (faulty door lock switch or faulty door lock module). If you still cannot unlock door then actuator is mechanically bad and must be replace (usually the case)
