I thought it was a frozen lock because it only happened during the wintertime. However, it is 93 degrees out today and my car door won't open. It is very frustrating. I took the door apart from this inside while it was closed. While it was difficult, it was possible. I didn't notice anything wrong from the inside so I sprayed the lock with WD-40 because it was all that I had and put everything back together to only shut the door and it not open again.

Car Info: 2008 Nissan Altima Coupe 3.5 SE (Split Year Model 2008/2009)

Should I just replace the cables or the entire lock actuator? And if the lock actuator, does that cause any issues with my keyfob? I am not sure what the FOB is synced to.

ANY HELP OR ADVICE WOULD BE AWESOME!!!

More common to be the latch assemblies (lock actuators) when the grease inside them dries up to then make parts drag to not open.

BTW...................WD40 becomes one of the best glues on earth once it dries up all the volatile compound in it in summer heat.................just so you and others know. It reduces down to a carbon copy of sticky dried up bubblegum.
