My electric door lock will not lock. I even have to manually lock it first, then hold onto the door handle when closing the door to get the door to lock. The key will not lock the door from the outside (weird). Any ideas as to how much I will need to put aside per week for how many weeks before selling the car, because except for this problem everything else is fine. My insurance company said, however, because of the age of the car, that if I was in a wreck, it would cost me a bundle to get the car fixed because parts are just not made for 11 y.o. cars. Its a beaut though at 31K miles.

What is your question in reference to exactly, fixing the vehicle or selling it? .. Be a little more specific.
If my driver's side electric door lock will not lock when I push the button to lock the door on the driver's side (note: the pax side door lock does not have the same problem. If I push the door lock button, it locks the pax and rear doors), just the front door lock will not lock when I push the button to lock the door. I had not tested the pax side door lock button locking the door on the pax side and the rear doors, but it works and locks the pax door and the rear door), so I am thinking that this maybe a fuse problem since I am having trouble with only one electric door lock.
BTW, how does a dealership rate, using the KBB standards, of what condition a car is when wanting to trade it in.... What are the standards for a used car to be considered in "excellent" condition, "good", "fair", "so-so"
