There is also a lot of rust around the doors and the trunk as well as the wheel wells. You think its been in a flood because i am leasing it!

    Will it lock from the driver door ? If so prob a bad switch. If not working at all possible broken wire in boot in door opening.

    The key doesn't work on the driver side door...so everytime i have to unlock the car..ive usually got my 11 month old in my arms, stretching across the car.

    Thought it was electric locks only. So passenger side door lock switch doesn't work ? Lock cylinder on drivers door could be corroded, might try some grafite or penetrating oil to loosen it or the latch assy. Doesn't always work. I have hade to install new lock cylinders many times for the same reason. Have someone check it for you, it's easier to diagnos when you see it for yourself.

    what i would do if you want to figure it out by yourself take a multimeter and take your door panel off and disconnect your plugs and stick you red in each slot and the black on a goo ground bolt and see if you are getting like 11 to 12 volt to your switches if no power check your fuses and relays find your vehicles electrical schematics and follow and start with the switch and go through leads all the way to the battery

    I apologize....i was wrong about a key hole on the passenger side door. Its ONE key hole, passenger side but can ONLY unlock all doors once im in the car.....from the passenger side. Im a single mother of three and am financing this car. I really think its been in a flood but i dont have the $30 to spend on Carfax.
