Now if  you did have a malfunction with the locks, and lets say one 
was either  repeatedly trying to lock it self. Or even was stuck in 
the lock position,  it wouldn't be a difficult predicament to get out 
of. Simply unlock the  other door.>>
No, it's not as simple as opening the other door. I know first hand. If  your 
door link rods are not properly adjusted, you can sometimes force the door  
to nearly unlock, while the wiper switch is fighting to lock re-lock them. Then 
 when you release the key- Boing- it relocks. The cure is to get your doors  
properly adjusted. Short term, disconnect the door lock module so it won't 
fight  you. Then you can at least unlock the "good" door. BTW, the LOCK rods are 
pretty  simple to adjust correctly. For one thing, they're not spring loaded 
like the  latch rods. It's the darn LATCH rods that are hard- and the latch 
rods will make  the locks unable to open, if they're wound too tight OR too 
loose. So you think  your LOCK rods are messed up, but it's your latches. Then, 
after they work  great, you reinstall your armrest and inside door handle and 
lock switch and  arggh- now it won't work again. The unadjustable links from the 
inner handle and  lock switch threw off your alignments. Oh yeah, they're fun. 
So how come none of  our door gurus has written up a definitive treatment on 
troubleshooting the  doors?
