Q: Why won’t my door lock right?

asked by on

I have a 2008 Chevrolet Silverado. The door lock on the passenger side has stopped working completely. It doesn’t lock with the remote, the button on the door, or when the truck is at speed. The truck only has 55,000 miles on it and has not been worked too hard at any point. I am worried that the driver’s side lock will stop working as well now. This seems like a serious issue, how can I fix this and prevent it from breaking again?
