Customer Question
Drivers door won't open...

Drivers door won't open when inside the car, will open when key is used from outside all other doors work fine ?

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the key stripped or worn?

No key is fine

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Cadillac?

20011 CTS-4

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your Cadillac?

2011 CTS-4

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

I'm just trying to get an idea what the cost will be & if I can find a local mechanic & tell him what needs to be done

Mechanic's Assistant: It can cost anywhere from $10 to $100, depending on the type of issue and how much of the Cadillac Mechanic's time your question is expected to take (how complex and lengthy an answer you require).

A local shop is quoting $90.00 the run down the problem & give me a bid noting that the actuater ? costs $490.00

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No wait are you going to charge me the $10 to $100 for an answer ?
