Oops, I believe this may have posted in the wrong area. If so, I'll delete it and remake. Haven't used forums in a long while, sorry about that.
Thanks for the help. That's what I figured. Would it be hard to check if the hardware for the remote lock is in there? I've never really modded a car myself but I'm not opposed to taking some plastic paneling off. If it is that simple. I know sometimes it isn't.Hmmm...handle must have been replaced or maybe even the entire door. Answer depends. If all the stuff is still inside the door and the right wiring harness, etc., then you just need a new door handle. OTOH, if there is stuff missing, you'll have to figure out what's missing and fix that.
Alright, thanks so much for your help. I know what I need to do I believe, just about finding the time and patience to do it. Thanks a bunch for real!Look for some YouTube videos. I'm sure you'll find one that shows someone replacing that handle.
You could take the door card off -- that's what the inside part of the door is called -- on both the driver and passenger side and compare the guts. The driver side will have the master control for the windows, so that may account for something different, but the rest should be the same.
Dealer will be expensive.
