    Passenger Door and trunk will not work

    Has anyone had experience with passenger door not working from the outside. Light wont come on like normal. I must open from inside only. Trunk will not pick up fob but will work if you push fob.

    Does the door open when you pull the handle outside though? Or is that inoperative too?

    If it's a matter of the passenger side doesn't unlock and the trunk doesn't respond to the FOB, that is a communications issue with the receiving module(s) located at various points through the car, in this case it sounds like the passenger side/rear antenna's may not be picking up the signal. At which point you then have to determine whether or not it's a FOB issue (low battery, resynching issue, etc), or if it's the module.

    Sounds like the passenger door handle is bad. I've seen that before. The tiny switches in it aren't working right. A new door handle is around $80-$90 from the dealer. You just need the part that goes inside the door, not the actual handle.

    The inside door handle is connected to the latch with a cable. The outside one is strictly electrical. That's why the inside works and the outside doesn't.

    I've seen the trunk button go bad too. I replaced the button part on a car once but that did not fix it. I sold that car and got one with a working button so I don't know how to fix that.

    Hi WFOWFO64,

    It looks like other forum members have already given you some solid feedback. If you do decide to head to the dealer, I would be happy to set up an appointment if you shoot me a PM with your VIN and contact info. If you are unable to PM me, please email me at socialmedia@gm.com with "Attention: Austin" in the title. Have a great day.
