I am having a problem with my sliding doors not unlocking. It started with the Drivers Side Door but now the Passenger Side is also not unlocking. I disabled the drivers side by removing the contacts but I don't really want to do that to the other door. When I press the unlock on the keyfob, the locking mechanism doesn't respond. It seems to be an intermittent problem. Anyone got a idea of how to fix it?
Today my 2010 TC XLT trapped me inside. I made a brief trip without incident, picking up one of my sweeties and driving her to a medical appointment. I stopped at the door of the clinic, letting her out, then drove away to park. In that driving, I noticed nothing unusual yet after parking I was unable to open the driver door. The door handle does not engage the latch mechanism, it just moves freely with a tug and springs back when released; no solenoid sound. The key fob unlocks all the front doors except the driver door. The solenoid in the driver door clicks, then immediately clicks again. Using the key in the lock, it is possible to turn CCW and engage the lock. Turning CW, it can only turn about to the point of engaging the latch mechanism and no further. (It cannot be rotated all the way to the ninety° position when the lock is disengaged). No, the locks didn't freeze -- The low temp last night was in the low 60s; it was in the low 70s when I got in, and about the same when I tried to get out. Since I can't get the door open, I can't get the driver door panel off (and probably couldn't anyway <sigh>) All suggestions deeply appreciated!
