2014 Altima RF Door Wonít Open
I just purchased this vehicle a week ago. Iíve popped open the panel as much as possible to get to the inside handle and all cables were in place. Iíve since disconnected them so that I could operate them by hand. Iíve used a camera scope to verify that the outside handle is moving the actuator on the latch mechanism. It sounds like the electric door lock is functioning. Iíve tried holding the handle open and prying on the door. The only thing I canít really verify is that the door lock is actually unlocking. It sounds like it is when you pull on the inside lock cable or operate the remote but thereís no real way to tell. It feels like either the door is not unlocking or it is jammed. The car does have some minor body damage but the door was functioning prior to purchasing it.
At this point I am about ready to take it to a body shop as a dealer suggested unless someone here has some other ideas.
