Still under warranty by chance?

These things hang up from time to time:

Make : PONTIAC Model : GTO Year : 2004
Manufacturer : GENERAL MOTORS CORP.
Service Bulletin Num : 040864018 Date of Bulletin: AUG 01, 2004
NHTSA Item Number: 10011241
Component: LATCHES/LOCKS/LINKAGES
Summary:
FRONT DOOR LOCK WILL NOT UNLOCK OR WILL LOCK INTERMITTENTLY. *EH

If you're mechanically inclined, got ahead and remove the inner door panel and take a look. If it's still under warranty, then definitely have the dealer do the work.

I had the same problem when my car was new. It was repaired under warranty at the dealership.

This has happened to me also. As was suggested by another member, if you can move it manually, simply raise and lower the lock about a dozen times, and that seems to free it up.
