1997 Maxima SE, Power everything.
It began with the passenger door not locking with the other doors (the knob shows almost locked). To lock it, it had to be "manually" locked. Now, it won't lock or unlock, with power or manually. Can "unlock" with manual lock knob but the door stays locked, and now we can't open it because it stays perpetually locked! Felt the lock mechanism move up and down with slim-jim so I think the rod from the knob to the pivot point is working, from there down to the lock, I can't tell. NOW, even when the power locks are used, the knobs show "locked", the "locking noise" is made, but the driver's door will still open anyway; but not the passenger's! In case it was a power problem, which I think it is (tell you why in a sec), I removed all "battery" fuses, since none said they were for the door locks, but none killed the power to the locks. I think it is a power problem because I noticed that when I lock the driver's door with the knob, it stays in the "locking" mode for a second or two, instead of just locking and releasing (like you were holding down the lock button too long and it was still getting power). Long story but I tried to pre-answer as much as I could! P.S. - I made a donation, as anyone who uses you should! I didn't know you guys were here and even if you can't fix this problem, there have been many more times I could have used you! This is an excellent idea!
have the same problem?
