Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amanda J. Pierce, MBA Todd Thank you for writing into AskPatty, if you are experiencing this while pulling the handle from the inside remove the door panel for inspection of hardware. Also, if you have a copy of the door key you may trip the security feature. Some models have a separate immobilize related to the alarm system. If you still need further assistance feel free to write a follow up question
