Q: Cannot open door on 1997 es300 from outside on 1997 Lexus ES300

When I use the remote to open the car doors, the inside lock buttons snap open normally but I am unable to open the drivers side door from the outside although the lock button snaps open. It feels like the door handle has no tention unlike the other ones. I can open the door from the inside with no problem.

What wouold be the common problem. Thanks for your answer

The door panel has to be removed and possibly the window glass and regulator to get to the broken part and repair, You might want to get a couple of estimates from your local body shops as they will trouble shoot, order the parts and repair it professionally
