My 1998 Buick Park Avenue doors (the drivers door opens normally) won't open from the outside. I can open them from the inside. The door locks seem to be operating normally (the indicato "flops" back and forth). I have checked fuses, wiring under the back seat and the associated plugs. They all are normal.

Do you
have the same problem?

If you can't open the driver's door from the outside then you will have to remove the inner door panel and see if the door handle rod came off somewhere.

Thanks saturntech9. The drivers door is the only one that opens from the outside.
