My driver's door hasn't opened since March. At first I thought it was frozen. I can feel the rods moving when I work the outside latch, and it locks like normal. I've been climbing over the console since then. Two different shops are stumped as to how to open it & fix it. Anyone have a similar problem? If so what did you do? Thanks.

Seems like it broke at the latch then.
May need to take the door panel off from the inside (it would probably help to take the driver seat out) and un-latch it by hand that way.
Where are you located? I have a parts car.

if it doesnt open from the inside door handle or the outside then its usually stuck from the interior door panel. When i worked for saturn it was pretty common on the ions. If thats the case, the easiest way to get it open is to put the drivers seat all the way back and use a hard plastic trim tool and pry between the door frame and door panel.
