Hey guys I can't find a GMC newsgroup and besides I know Dodge people are
smarter anyway so I am sure someone can answer a silly question for me.
My father passed away a couple of months ago and now my mom is selling his
2002 Sonoma extended cab. From what I have read, the third door was standard
for all extended cabs in 2002. My mom says it either does not have one or
will not open; she read about it in the owner's manual and still can not get
it to open. Since you have to open the drivers side door to get the 3rd door
open I would think there would not be a separate lock or a child-protection
lock for the 3rd door, am I wrong? I don't think my mother is a total idiot
and can normally manage to open doors so I'm wondering if there is something
simple we are overlooking. Does the driver's side door have to be opened all
the way before the 3rd door unlatches? They call the third-door a
clamshell-style , if that is any help.
the gm 3rd door has its own handle on the door jam itself just like the
dodge products do. now if this handle isnt working i belive they had
problems with either the rod or the handle. ive got some friends that owned
these s10/15 trucks and both had door handle trouble with their trucks.
hope this is some help.
