Hi there. It really depends on what is actually damaged which would determine the ballpark estimate for repairs. This type of problem can be as simple as a broken fuse or electrical relay or as complex as a damaged power window motor or broken door latch. Repair costs can range from $60.00 to $400 or more. The best way to have this issue correctly diagnosed is to have a professional mobile mechanic come to your location and complete a door will not open inspection.
