Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. Please allow me to assist you. We have had this issue in the shop a few times. In order to determine the problem, the inner door panel needs to be removed. This usually takes in the area of 45 minutes to an hour. Inspection of the lock assembly would be another half hour and perhaps 30 minutes to put it back together. If all that is needed is an adjustment or a re connection, you are looking at 2 hours or so of labor times your area's labor rate. If you need a lock solenoid, figure another 280 dollars on top of the labor.

If you have any questions, please feel free to reply.
