lock doesn't work, 91 ranger xlt, any ideas?
So the lock won't go up and down on the driver's side door, thus you can't lock the door.
I took off the door panel and looked inside. There is a rod that connects the lock assembly that you can see, to some sort of cylinder which has an electrical connector on the bottom (for the power door lock).
I tried grabbing the rod with pliers and forcing it myself, but it wouldn't budge. I tried rapping the cylinder with a hammer while jiggling the rod, and it still wouldn't budge.
The cylinder is riveted or welded into the door, so I don't think I can take it out for replacement.
Any ideas on how I can get the door to lock?
