Q: My passenger door will not unlock or lock from inside, you have to lock it from the driver door button, and unlock it with the key

asked by on

My passenger door will not unlock or lock from inside, you have to lock it from the driver door button, and unlock it with the key on the outside of the door. I wanna know what needs to be fixed, I took the interior door panel off and nothing looks wrong and when I move the door manually to lock and unlock the rod moves, but it does not lock or unlock

My car has 150000 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.

If your vehicle is equipped with power door locks, your issue might be electrical in nature. If you have manual door locks, clearly there is a problem with the linkage at some point and the exact fault will have to be determined at inspection. If you want a mobile diagnostic and repair of this issue, the recommended service is a door lock malfunction inspection.
