    Re: help, front doors won't open

    ABQDon, I did the same thing, sprayed contack cleaner in to the driver door handle untill it ran out bottom of the door. Worked for a few days. Then nothing, more spray. Called Rippy Cadillac order the switch assembly. $88. includes discount (Cadillac form member) & shipping. I printed off how to replaced the mirco switches. I never did this before but only taken 2 hr. Later I played with the old switch and found out only one micro switch was bad, the orange & blue wire. You can test this with a volt meter. I also popped the switch apart to see what gone wrong. Clean inside, just not making contack. Hope this help. Danny

    ----------

    aung03, My 06 STS was doing the same thing. Replaced the driver door micro switches. The door lock actuator should be good. I live in columbus Ohio, Maybe you can stop by and we can installed it. Danny

    Lol. I feel the same when I drive Chrissys Ion. Lol. My parents Avalon is keyless too but you've still gotta push a button on the door handle with your thumb to lock it. Lol. Not ours. Locks all by itself. Lol. Very nice for when you've gotta arm full of groceries!
