You have been signed up since April '06 and have 23 posts? Teach me that kind of self control please! lol

Never happened to me in the 5 years I've owned my car, but I would try to lock and unlock the door from outside repeatedly a few times and hopefully it will do the trick. If not, then you have to take off the panel with door closed, and I don't forsee that too difficult either. You may need to take the seat out to gain clearance, again, no big deal!
Good Luck

You might have rip the door panel off and take a look at the door mechanism.

And if you need a new door b/c you ended up plasma cutting the door skin and structure out of frustration, let me know, I have two passanger doors for sale and one driver side.

nice one kotomile i was thinking about it but problem fixed. I just played with the lock using the key for about 3 minutes i heard a small click and the door opened perfectly. NOw I can give my brother a lil test drive because he wanted to feel how my greddy kit would feel with the new Exedy stage 2 clutch i just had installed. He still thinks his turbo 420a eclipse can beat me

the 420a is basically a neon motor that non turbo eclipse used to have. its pretty quick easily takes on srt4's and keeps up with evo's not evo MR's and he is only boosting 7psi.
