Q: Remote key not opening driver's door

asked by on

My remote key does not open my driver's door. It opens the other three.

There are a couple possibilities. The lock actuator motor in the left front door could have gone bad. There could be a broken wire, the most common spot would be in the door jamb where the wires bend. A qualified mechanic from YourMechanic can come out and diagnose your door’s problem.
