Question about 2000 Pontiac Grand Am GT
Door on front passenger side won't open. I've tried opening it with a key. Key goes in and turns, but will not unlock. I've tried using open door buttons in the car, door still won't unlock. I've tried using the inside handle, door won't unlock. What could be the problem?
This is only a possible solution to your problem. I had similar problem with my car. It turned out that the window locking toggle on the driver door not only prevented the other windows from being opened by passengers but also controlled the door locks. When I unlocked the window control I was able to unlock the door. Another possibility is the armature inside the door has come off the locking mechanism.

you would have to try and remove the door panel if possible and find the rod that controls the latch and open the door.

Sound like you have a dammaged door latch assembly. It is a pain but you have to take the insid door trim panal off to see what you are doing and make sure the latch assy is un locking. Dis connect power door lock motor linkage to make sure motot is not jaming the lock in the lock possition.

You have to remove the inner door panel to get to the nuts that hold the handle in place,this is also the cause of the lock and inside switch problem.You can purchase a tool to remove the panel,if your have a bit of mechanical experience this should be fairly easy.
