Nissan Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question,
This is due to a bad door latch assembly. The door latch assembly has the lock actuator built into it. That is what locks and unlocks the door. The actuators motor is to weak to lock or unlock the door, so the whole door latch assembly will need to be replaced to resolve your issue. The part is around 260 bucks and about 1 1/2 hrs labor to replace.
If you have any more questions on this, please feel free to ask.

If you can't get the door open, then what you need to do is remove the inside door panel to access the internals of the door. Then on the bottom part of the latch assembly where the inside handle cable goes into it, you need to reach in and move the lever on the latch. That is where it hangs up. Other wise you would need to use a screw drive and hammer to break away the plastic housing to get to the mechanics of the latch to open the door.
Yes it is, but it is tricky
