2005 Chevy Cobalt 4 cyl Automatic
I cannot get my driver side door to open, one day it was both drivers side and passenger side. I have to get in and out of the passenger side. What started happening first was I would get out and the latch would latch back down so I couldn’t close my door so I would have to lock and unlock my door multiple times with the remote until the latch goes up, once I do that and close the door it will then not open back up, like the latch is stuck down and will not come back up even though the door is "˜unlocked’… I have tried to lock and unlock it manually I’ve tried to lock and unlock it with my remote I’ve even tried rocking it thinking it probably just wasn’t in gear (it’s an automatic) but still no luck… I have to STILL get in and out of my cobalt through the passenger side due to the driver’s side latch not unlatching… Has anyone else had this problem or am I the only one? Also, what do you think it could be? I do not have a warranty on my car since it’s a 2005 obviously… It has locked me completely out at one point and I do not want to get to the point of it locking me in my car and me having to crawl through my window like Ace Ventura coming out of a mechanical rhino’s a$$. This is so FRUSTRATING since I have not seen ANY resolution on the internet on how to fix this without actually taking it to a dealership so they can "˜diagnose’ it which will be $50-55 its self. I have had more problems with this car than my parents have had with their 2002 Chevy Avalanche which has only had ONE problem the whole time they have owned it… My EPS System went out (had to replace that) my key kept sticking in my ignition (had to replace the shifter) and NOW my door locks are being all sorts of crazy… I have to live my luck with my car doors on hoping it will not lock me out even though the door locks are showing that its unlocked but the latches are not coming up… Anyone have an answer for that?
have the same problem?
