Crazy Door

Hello everyone,

My passenger door doesn't open when i press the key fob, when i press the center lock button in the car, nor when i drive away ( drivers door does), this is the same if i unlock using the dooe lock.

However all the doors close when i lock the car using the keyfob, or the lock on the door.

When i manually open the passenger door from inside, the windows doesn't roll down 1/4" and on closing it gets stuck on the top.

Is there a DIY to fix this?

on another note, my Second key fob cannot open any doors from the open button, but closes with the close button.

Appreciate your help, Thanks in advance

cheers

if the window works with the button, i would check the door switch. Looks like the car doesn't know the status of the door which will message the window up/down feature and lock/unlock

It's part of the door strike on the body. it's a small plastic pin and sometimes this gets worn down and isn't pushed in enough to trigger
