Since you tried the pliers already, we can agree that the lock actuator motor asm. is frozen. You have only 1 option. You will have to partially remove the panel with the door closed. Here's how it's done:
Remove the rear seat. If the seat back cushion partially covers the door panel, remove it too. Now, follow standard door panel R&R procedures regarding the arm rest to door anchor screws, door handle trim cover, etc. Then, you will have to partially pull the door panel (at the rear, where your door lock/door latch is located) away from the door far enough to reach in and disconnect the lock rod from the latch asm. by un-clipping the retainer from the rod allowing the rod to slide out of the hole it is in on the lock lever pivot. Once it is free, you can pivot thr lock lever to the un-lock position with your fingers and open the door.

2002 Cadi Deville, can't get any locks to operate with remote or dash push buttons, the remote operates everthing but the locks! When the remote door lock is pressed, lites flash,horn blows locks not.


Power Door Lock Operation
The vehicle is equipped with power door locks. Each lock actuator is powered and controlled by the door module mounted in the individual door, but the rear integration module (RIM), which is the master control for the door lock system, determines when the lock functions are permitted. The RIM receives and examines the requested lock function from the individual door modules, or from the remote function actuator (RFA) via the class 2 serial data circuit. The RIM also examines the transmission shift selector position and the ignition switch position information available over the Class 2 serial data circuits. If the RIM determines that a lock or unlock function is permitted, it sends a class 2 message back to the individual door modules commanding them to perform that Lock or Unlock function.
Power Door Lock Components
The power door lock system consists of the following components:
?€¢
Driver door lock switch


?€¢
Passenger front door lock switch


?€¢
LH rear door lock switch


?€¢
RH rear door lock switch


?€¢
LH middle door lock switch (w/ V4U)


?€¢
RH middle door lock switch (w/ V4U)


?€¢
Driver door switch assembly (DDSA)


?€¢
Driver door module (DDM)


?€¢
Passenger front door module (PDM)


?€¢

?€¢
RH rear door module (RRDM)


?€¢
Left middle door module (LMDM) (w/ V4U)


?€¢
Right middle door module (RMDM) (w/ V4U)


?€¢
Driver door lock actuator


?€¢
Passenger front door lock actuator


?€¢
LH rear door lock actuator


?€¢
RH rear door lock actuator


?€¢

Door locks not working


could be a wiring short, but if you hear the lock motor moving i believe the lock actuator has broken free. the rivets break free at times and i've used screws and washers the reattach the actuator in place without having to pull apart the door. try to see if you hear 1 doorlock at a time. if when you press the button, the motor sounds and theres movement thats your problem. if you press and theres no motor then you either have no power to the motor or its bad. current tester to the switch will tell you either way.

Rear lift gate on 2004 dodge durango is stuck in the locked closed position. Latch is working fine, but it appears the power lock is not releasing...all the other power locks are working.


OK, it could be the wiring to the solenoid actuator for the door lock, or the solenoid actuator for the door lock itself that needs to be replaced.

Does the door unlock manually, somehow?

Hi. the door actuator must be acting weird and needs to be checked. I suggest you take a look at it and check also the wiring of your door.

97 maxima SE driver door wont open from inside or outside dealer said it was door actuator and lock assembly. the door is in the closed position. I need advice the dealer wants 750$. Is there a cheaper...


The doorlock-actuator can be accessed with the inner door panel removed. It is difficult to get to with the seat in the way, but backing the seat all the way to the rear will help.Once you get the panel off, the actuator can be removed. I would check the electrical connection to that solinoid before I removed it, as it may be a simle as that in that model.
