even manually? my guess is the connecting rod shook loose, or fell out of position. not a big fix, but with the way those doors are designed, it can be a pain in the ass to get your hand in there and put it back into place. if you know what you're doing, pull off the access panel and take a look. - if the problem is with the electronic - side, the actuator is likely bad, or disconnected somehow.

Yes even manually. I was able to move the latch inside door and it moves to lock position but then I can't close door. I am in the NY area and we had a show storm so I will try what you mentioned. Do you think a little WD40 will do the trick? Thank you!

Try spraying the WD-40 in the latch area to free it up, but since your NY now, it might freeze right up.

Follow up to my original question - The latch was in the permanent locked position. Had to pull off the panel to access the actuator. Not an easy thing to do. The actuator was burnt out. Need to replace that. Was able to disconnect everything to the door. The door is permanently lock until the replacement part comes in. Thanks for all your help!

My parents have a 2006, just after the warranty expired one of the back door locks went (had to be replaced); 3 months later the other back door lock went. As seniors on a fixed income they weighed the odds and chose not to spend the $300.00 to have that door lock repaired (and as a result have not been able to lock their car since). Today the driver's door lock went. Any ideas?
