Problems with 3 out of 4 doors? Has your vehicle been in an accident just before these problem started? Cavaliers are known for problems but I have never heard of this type of situation unless the vehicle has been in an accident and the body wasn't realigned properly or verified.

Typically when you get a door that opens from one handle and not the other the problem is inside the door and part of the latch assembly has either broken or come apart. To fix it you have to open up the door itself and get to those controls.

The reason I asked about the vehicle being in an accident is because you described the door opening on it's own. Now that could have been because it didn't catch correctly but with all the other problems you mentioned I am concerned that the doors are out of aligned.

    no this car was not in an accident. Do you think it still is the same problem?

  • James Young Sep 27, 2011

    It can only be so many issues when it comes to the doors opening and closing. Normally when a door gives you trouble it gives you problems with 1 handle but the other works. In the case when both handles fail to work the problem is usually inside the door with the actuator which has a plastic piece that is prone to breaking. The only reason I asked about the accident was because you said the door opened on it's own which is either a latch problem, alignment problem or worn catch pin. You can rule out catch pins being the common problem because the odds of 3 of those wearing out at the same time is slim to none. The odds against 3 doors going out within a relative short period is unusual in itself. Again, the reason i asked about the accident or body twist or flex. I am looking at problems which would explain why 3 doors are effected. If it were the interior handles not working I would recommend checking the child safety lock system. But that won't effect the exterior handles. Until you can get inside the door and see what plastic pieces you have broken or floating around you are not going to know what needs to be replaced.

    Can tell me ho to take off the door panels? if i am right they should just snap on and off ,on this car?

  • James Young Sep 29, 2011

    Typically there are 2 to three screws in the door panel. Normally located near the arm rest or interior handle depending on whether you are working with a front or rear door. Once you get those off, and occasionally they are covered by small plastic caps, all you need is a large Flat tip screw driver to pry each of the push pins out. These are placed all around the bottom and sides of the door and you need to get as close as possible to each one before prying it up so it comes out of the door and not out of the panel.

Door is loked on rear driver side want open


Won't open from outside? Won't open from inside? Equipped with power door locks? IF so, and won't open inside/outside, suspect stuck power door lock actuator. Sometimes working the lock/unlock button will make the door unlock. If not, the door will require disassembly from inside to determine what the failure may be. If the door needs disassembly while in the closed position, the paneling/clips may get damaged FYI

87 cavalier fuse location


Engine Compartment Fuse Box
  • Open the hood and look on the wall of the engine compartment on the driver's side. About 3/4 of the way from the front of the car to the windshield you will see a large black box. This is the engine compartment fuse and relay box. Undo the clip holding down the front of the box and open it; it is hinged on the back so the top opens like a door.
Passenger Compartment Fuse Box
  • Open the driver's side door. Kneel down on the ground by the foot pedals. Look on the driver's side wall under the dashboard. You will see a small black box right by the door. This is the passenger compartment fuse box. This box also has a clip to keep the front closed and hinges on the back.

2006 buick lucerne back doors won't open


My friend just had this problem and he reached in and pulled the inside door handle back as far as it would go, and then let it go, allowing it to 'snap' back. For some reason this fixed it. We have no idea why. By doing this on one door, both rear door locks freed up and the rear locks are now working. Before, both rear locks were stuck and you could not open the doors from the inside nor the outside. Not sure why it works, but maybe it will work for you!

If neither switch works it is a bad connection at the motor or bad ground or a bad motor. Remove the door panel unplug the motor push the switch and see if there is 12volts on the wires if there is the motor is bad There are small brushes in the motor that go bad tap on the motor while pushing the switch if it works that way replace it
