1997 Suburban Door Lock
My problem started with a truck I couldn't get into (drivers door), once I was in through another door and began moving a VERY difficult to move door lock mechanical switch up and down (see point to in linked pic), I could get in through the door. Suddenly my wireless opener began working again and easily locked or unlocked the door until the other day when I could no longer get in. To make matters worse, unfortunately I broke the mechanical switch and can only hope that a combination of the electronic unlock solenoid with the key in the door might be lucky in getting it one more time.
So any ideas on what causes this level of difficulty in getting the little vertical switch to move and does replacing the internal handle assembly usually cure the problem?
