Sounds like the mechanical linkage that connects the inside lever to the lock assembly is loose or disconnected. Remove the door panel and see if this is the case. I have seen plastic levers break not visible without disassembly

My electric window on the drivers side and the rear vent window do not operate. Can this be a defective master module on the drivers side door.


It is USUSALLY just the rocker switch in the door there. Water drips on it when window is open during wet weather. This causes the contacts under that switch to corrode. Those are simple an easy to replace. Pop off the inside door panel (screw under the inside door latch handle, 2 or 3 screws under the arm rest - then plastci pop screws all around the sides and bottom. these can just pull out. Then it lifts off the top ledge. turn it and you'll see the switch still attached to the panel. try cleaning - will probably need replacement.

Passenger front door does not open from outside, only from inside. Also, driver's side door has to be jiggled a bit to get that door to open from outside. The inside latch is loose. Just bought this car...


this is a common problem with VW door handles, but an easy fix!!! The door handle needs to be replaced as the fork that lifts the lock has broken off or cracked. Depending on the model it is easy to remove the door handle. spring off the Crome mld on the front and on the slam side of the door behind the rubber u will find a phillips screw. Under the crome mld is the other.
Good luck.

The driver side window will not come back up. the


I have this problem in my Buick Park Avenue. The two passenger side windows and the driver window work fine, but the rear driver side window won't close if it's opened. I disconnected the wire from inside the door to avoid further problems.

First try helping the window up, by gently pulling on it while you push the button. If this doesn't work and your vehicle is still under warranty, take it back to the place of purchase, the window motor will need to be serviced or replaced.

2004 frontier doors won't open


You might need new pins and bushings for the door, which cost under 15.00 if it is starting to stick. If the door will not open at all, check your inside door handle. Is there any tension when you pull on it? or does it pull really easy? If it pulls really easy, you will need to take the door panel off and see if the door rods are still in place. Sometimes they can come loose and need to be put back in. Or they could be broken. Either way, these are easy fixes, just take to the nearest auto body shop or mechanic shop to do so.
