I have a 56 Astra, the back passenger door has always opened whether the car was locked or not but now the front passenger door won't open, regardless of whether I use the fob or the door lock on the dash board...HELP!!!

Is this an easy repair? More importantly is it an expensive repair?

Try taking fuse out and putting it back in.

Failing that you need to take interior door panel off. However you can not do that without door being open.

When you take fuse out make sure keys are in your pocket, and not in car as doors will lock when you put fuse back in

It's unlikely to be the fuse but the internal fuse box is usually behind a pull down panel either by the drivers knees or a similar area on the passenger side. The reason I say it's unlikely is because I've just fixed a vw golf with the same issue and that was a failed locking mechanism. 3 went around the same time so I've just replaced then however to replace then you do need to have the door open which would be the first challenge. Think I managed to save these people about 100 on what a garage had quoted them. Pm me if you need more help.

soooo I get to Tesco's this morning to put petrol in my car as the petrol light has come on and I can't open the bloody petrol cap!!!!AARGHHHH

Got advice from one of the guys in work...might be a fuse, gets a lift home to get the manual (I didn't have enough petrol for the journey) goes to Halfords buys a fuse puts it in and NOTHING

I phones a friend who has a garage (I was hoping it wouldn't get this far) he said I need an auto electrician and recommends one, I goes there (by this time the petrol light is furiously flashing away) and lo and behold...the rear left passenger door was the problem, ALL of the wires had snapped mad 40 later jobs a goodun and central locking is restored grin
