Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.

When you tried to open the vehicle after unlocking it, was the issue with all doors? or just the drivers front door?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
at times all doors, sometimes only 1 door closed passenger doors

Do you see the lock knob flicker at all and try to unlock?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
I tried to unlock had to do it manually

Thank you.

It sounds like you have a issue with what they call the Door Latch Assembly. That has the Lock actuator built into it. This is like a little motor with in the latch. So it sounds like that is what is causing your issue.

I have a video on how this latch assembly is replaced if you would like to view it? The door panel configuration is different, but the steps after that are almost identical.

Let me know..

the latch assemblies are about 80 to 90 bucks each, and about 1 to 1 1/2 hours labor.
