72 3 door locks

Iím new to this. I have a 72 K10 3 door with barn doors on the back. The 3rd door and barn door locks arenít working right - just got it back from paint and body w all parts installed. I lock the doors then close them and the lock pops open. Anybody ever have this problem?

Re: 72 3 door locks

You have to close the door then lock with the key they are not like newer vehicles. It was meant so you could not lock the keys in the truck since you have to use the key to lock it up.

Most women like the strong, silent typeÖ Fortunately for me, my wife prefers the out-of-shape, mouthy type.

OK. That makes sense. My third door does not have a lock on the outside, I’ll have to check and see if somebody closed it up. My old El Camino would let me lock the keys inside any day of the week.

Third door did not have a lock. You have to reach in from the front and push the button down to lock it
