    Replaced a passenger side front door lock successfully. When I replaced a broken left rear door lock, it went much quicker. However, now I can't close the door. The latch doesn't move. Have tried unsuccessfully several times, even re-installed the broken locking mechanism and that one won't close now either. Thought Child Lock might have something to do with it. What should I do?

    Problem solved! Learned this is common problem. A reader said to 1) unlock all doors, and 2) while pulling the outside door handle open, insert a screw driver into the end of the door & flip the latch!

    Both of my installations are successful!
