Hey everyone, Has anyone run into this... I go to my truck this morning, hit the key fob a couple of times to unlock the doors. all my doors unlock except the drivers door... I tried using the key to unlock but it appears jammed.. i can force the key just enough to open the door handle but the door still doesnt unlock..I can open the door from the inside using the handle...but cant pull the lock knob up.. I tried using the lock/unlock button but only the 3 other doors will power lock and unlock.. I have 12k miles so I'll take it in. just wunderin if anyone else has seen this...

you haven't tried a slim jim lately have you? Or hopefullly no one else has. A month or so ago, I locked my keys in the truck and tried a slim jim, but it didn't work. I couldn't open the door from the outside, or unlock it. Inside the door, there is a rod that connects the locking mechanism to the opening mechanism and I separated them. That might be all that it is, and it is a 2 sec fix, once you get the door panel off. But if it wasn't you who tried the slim jim, I'd be careful where you park your truck. It shouldn't be anything to major though to fix.

no problem. I would hope not, but check to see if the rubber is a little scratched or the glass.

I had the same problem 3 days after I got it home...driver door mechanism broke. Dealer will fix it no worries...just might have to wait a couple days for the parts to get in like i did.
