Hello all!
Could really use some help. First off let me get the obvious out of the way, I’ve tried a slim Jim and the door still won’t open.
About a week ago headed to the car for a nice Sunday cruise. Put the key in to unlock the driver door and nothing happened. Inside and outside handles pull but the door will not unlock or open at all.
Any suggestions would be helpful!
Thanks, Tiffany

yes door is still in the door lock position and will not unlock. Inside and out handles do not open the door after trying to unlock with key and use slim Jim.

Ok, you may be able to roll the window down and use a flashlight to see the latch mechanism, you'll have to use the notch in the slim jim to catch the arm that unlatches the door, you will have to use some muscle, if you can't see where the door handle rod connects to the latch mechanism then you need to pull the seats out through the passenger side and remove the door panel, removing the seats allows you to take the door panel out without damage. I have been successful both ways.
After you get the door open you can drill the rivet that holds the lock actuator
