Q: Driver's door handle not working

asked by on

The inside handle of the driver's side door is not working.

Hello. If the door opens fine from the outside of the car and not from the inside then it is typically caused by a failure in the handle cable. The cable may have popped out of place or may have broken. The door panel would need to be removed and the inside of the door inspected to see what the cable does when trying to operate the handle. If the cable is fine then the latch assembly may need to be replaced. I would enlist the assistance of a certified mechanic to inspect your door to see what needs to be replaced.
