Rear drivers side passenger door won't unlock...

Any idea on how to fix it? Never been inside a door on any vehicle.

It will lock, but not unlock unless I do it manually.

Try spraying WD-40 inside the latch of the door. I did that on all of mine and they work a lot better now

I gave that a go, after cleaning them out with brake cleaner. No dice.

You'll probably need to pull the panel off and check voltage at the plug. It could have a broken wire. They tend to break where the harness passes thruogh the door jamb from the body to door. I have a wire issue for the ft pas. window, it will roll up, not down unless I push up on the harness.

possibly the power lock actuator

my 92 started slowly on one door, would lock but not unlock, then it spread to the other doors, it started out worse in the cold, then would work when they warmed up

guy at the dealership suggested taking the door panels off, cleaning them out and lubricating them, i still havent gotten to it yet, but new power lock actuators were close to $200 each through the dealer, not sure if there is an aftermarket actuator available, i've just lived without the convenience of the power locks, it hasn't bothered me enough to be a priority and i haven't had the free time to spare to mess with it

You may want to check your ground wires too, if you don't have a good ground it can make the solenoid act weird.
