    Unhappy Door not locking!

    I have the base model of the Classic Silverado; no power windows or power locks. Recently I was checking out my truck and I pulled on the passenger door handle to confirm that my truck was locked (I have a key clicker and I am paranoid about security). My passenger door opened, and the car alarm goes crazy. I shut the door, use my clicker, and the truck is locked..... but only the driver side door

    So basically my passenger side door cannot be locked by my clicker anymore. It can be unlocked, but not locked. Now I have to manually reach over and lock the passenger side door and THEN arm the alarm. How can I fix this and what is wrong? The passenger side door used to always lock just fine.

    t sounds like you have a problem with the loking mecanisin in the door. I would pull of the door panel and make sure everything is kosher.

    Exactly, maybe like 10% of the time it works. Maybe it's a Silverado thing because my dad's truck is that way too

    I'll ask him to help me with it.

    theres probably a switch/relay in the panel that tells it to close or open, you'll definately have to pull the door panel, it's pretty simple though.

    But I have minor OCD

    Forgot to post this, but my dad actually figured out the problem! Something was broken/ came undone inside and and he fixed it for me. I'll ask him what it was exactly.
