My MB ML350 stick key (metal key) wont unlock the door. The key goes in, it turns but the lock will not open.

Check the door lock fuse in the fuse panel... try the key on another door... may just be that the manual lk is malfunctioning on that door... if the other doors don't respond and the fuse is good then the key probably needs to be reprogrammed by the dealer to the door... happens when your battery dies or is replaced.

My door locks are sticking I think if you lock it it wont open when unlocked any ideas what could be wrong?

You may need to clean the door latch assembly. Your lock may be sticking-check with your local dealership to see if graphite spray is ok to use on your car. If it is spray the lock assembly with graphite while working the locks. You may want to apply a light coat of white lithium grease to the door latches.

The lock on the rear door keeps sticking, is there a quick and easy way to open it?

Is it the lock or the handle? My rea door handle will ten to stick. To reapir remove inner door panel and gently cut thru plastic by lock area. Use a spray penetrating oil on handle and inner lock components. This should do the trick.

Good luck!

Drivers Door will not unlock. Inside or outside or with the key

Pull the inside panel off ,and look at the latch itself,that latches the door,and look for the lever that locks the latch,it will be sticking out of the latch,and try and release the lock by moving the lever.
