When I lock my 453 and unlock it with the fob the driver's door won't open, no problem with the passenger door. If I don't lock it there's no problem opening both doors. The keyhole doesn't open the driver's door either but I can go through the passenger door and pull the inside handle and the door opens. Anyone have this problem and what was the cure?

The outer door latch cable may be broken. It would require a replacement cable and likely the removal of the door panel to repair.

...remove door handle screws...hold handle and pull straight back ...the handle and cover should slide out and expose the two teleflex cables that activate the outer handle and key actuating cable...

Jetfuel....next..
