This question isn't very specific, but my car's passenger side door hasn't been unlocking for a while. It's a power lock and the motor is shot. You'd have to like go inside the door and fix it threw there. My dad works on cars, and he says it's too expensive to take in, and too tedious to do it yourself. so yea

if you can't open the door from the inside or the outside the problem is with the door latch and not with the lock mechanism. unfortunately the only way to get to the latch if the door won't open from the inside or outside is to take the front driver seat out then take the door panel off and work on the latch from the inside of the door.if the door won't open from the inside but opens from the outside or vice versa its a problem with either the inside handle or the outside handle, whichever doesn't work. there are clips on the rods that the handles pull on to operate the latch that may have broken or come off. also, the lever part of the handle may have broken on its pivot. the door panel will have to come off to determine the cause of your problemhope that helps

how old is the car?mine was 1990, and the plastic bits that hold the connecting rods between the handles and lock got brittle and snapped. which handle is not working, inside or out?if it's the inside, you can take the door panel off and try to refix the connecting rod. the outside one is more tricky. my inside one broke, so i opened the window to get out. then the window stopped working. do i had to open the back window to open the front door from the outside.
