    1998 Trans Am driver door latch stuck

    Hi new here, but here is the question?

    My door latch seems busted or something. the lock and door handle rods move the levers but nothing is happening, I tried the key and power locks and nothing
    I got the door panel off and can see in their and nothing seems out of the ordinary but when I felt under the rods their is a piece just hanging a very small piece, I moved it up into it and kept working the door handle and still nothing.

    OK, back to the question how can I make the door latch engage, it seems locked yet.

    does anyone know how to disengage the locking mechanism?

    or is a blow torch out of the question, just kidding

    It seems like the door lock actuator is done. Not too easy to replace and adjust. A body shop can help you out with the replacement.

    I second the dead door actuator. That hanging piece you described sounds like the clip that holds the rod to the handle/actuator. Could have come loose when the actuator failed.
