Q: Back doors not opening

asked by on

The back doors won't open. I changed the battery.

If the locks do not operate for the back doors, I would suspect a blown fuse. Otherwise, the master switch in the driver’s door may have to be replaced.

A diagnostic is required to determine the exact issue with your doors. I recommend an inspection from a qualified technician, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you resolve your door issue.
