Door Lock will not Lock or Unlock from outside?

Recommended Posts

I went out the other night and when I arrived at my friends house I parked in the Driveway, and Manually locked the doors, (The Fob Switch is not working, and I am going to replace the switch, just haven't done it yet.), So as I said I locked it manually with no issues. So after a few hours I walk out and unlock the car again with no issues, it was about a half an hour drive home in cool weather. So I get home and start to get out and lock the car and it feels like there is nothing in the tumblers? I twist and turn the key in the Lock and nothing happens, and it feel like the everything has been removed from the lock itself? So, since I was driving the car and I used the lock less then a half an hour ago I know that no one was playing with the locks.

I get in the car to see if the Power locks work from inside the car, at first no, then I backed the car up a few feet and try again and this time they worked with no issue, so I guessed that it was just acting "buggy" because of the weather? I get out and try the key in the door again, and still nothing from the locks, it is like there is nothing in the tumbler?

So, now I cannot lock the car from outside of the car? I am going to try and take the Door Panel off this weekend and see if maybe there is a wiring problem, but I am hoping someone here has had a similar problem and there is an easier fix? Any ideas??
