Re: 06 drivers side door won't lock

Are you able to take the panel off,,
Would think (most) any garage should be able to tell you what the fault is..
But to properly diagnose, the panel will have to come off,,
With the panel off, if the cable going from the door handle to the mechanism is not broken, then it is the mechanism that needs replacing..

Likely to be the cable from the inside handle to the lock mechanism... possibly just become detached.
But as Ourkid says, need to get the door card off and have a look.
