driver door will not open

I have a 1985 Buick Park Avenue, the drive door will unlock but will not open from outside or inside. It is equiped with electric locks. how do I fix this problem so I can use my drive side door. Is there a way to take the door off with out breaking it.

You might defer this one to a body shop...this could be a real gazorch to do. Keep trying...the latch is probably jammed and may come unjammed.

If you can get the inner door panel off, you can maybe fish around in there and see if you can jar the latch/lock loose.

Very tough with the door closed . You might have to take the seats out to get enough room to get at everything.

can you smell anything like if a motor is burnt if you fish around inside your door be very careful because i'm sure you have power windows and locks if you fish around in there without seeing what your doing you might do some damage. Don,
