Nissan Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hor often do you usually use the outside door lock?
Does it turn either way? did you try the extra key?
Sound like its just jammed coz of not using it. Its too new of a car to have this issue. Did you try too put wd40 in the key hole?
Just spray a lil bit in it and let it sit for 15 minutes and try again. That should help
Good luck and please dont forget to rate me in the upper left corner otherwise i dont get compensated. Thank you and have a blessed day.
Next step is to check the lock linkage on the inside. Are you able to take off the door panel?
No problem, Keep men posted
Loosen the linkage and turn the key again. Lets see if it turns.
It should be a plastic clip that you can unhook.
The clip should be turn and lift. Do you have a way to attach a picture of the clip to have a better idea?
You can just attach it on this messenger. the clip icon on top of the chat box.
just turn the yellow clip to the right away from the metal linkage. And pull the linkage out.
Then the problem is in the lock assembly . I have never seen one go bad this soon though.
Two ways either get a new lock or if you can find an mobile automobile locksmith in your area who can repair the same lock.
Locksmith option will be much cheaper than new lock.
You just have to be careful with the shims not falling out of place if you take it apart. Its better to call a mobile locksmith where the car is and let them take it out.
