    I have a 2005 Nissan Murano with the same problem: the rear door on the driver's side will not unlock via the key fob or the driver's master control. It has to be unlocked manually from the inside. It is an intermittent issue. Sometimes it will work fine, other times it won't.

    I think it's an electrical issue - I've had other electrical issues with the car as well.

I had a similar problem with a sienna and sometimes the cable ( inside the door) between the handle and the latch gets stuck in the sleeve. Kind of like the brake cable on a bike.
take the panel off by removing all the screws you can see on the panel and pull the panel off. There will be plastic pins holding it. Some of them may pop off and some will break off.
Drip oil down the sleeve so the cable slides freely. I used bike chain oil. Do not use WD40. This is **** and will not work for very long. Try the handles a few times before you put the panel back.

How do you replace the rear window wiper on a 2006 Nissan Murano. I can not see how to remove the existing wiper.

Sure, you have to remove the outer blade by moving the plastic cover off of the mount location & then remove the nut. You'll need to remove the door trim panel once the back door is open, once removed you'll see the harness leading to the motor & the mounting bolts. once removed, it's a straight pull out & you are done. To remove the back door trim, you'll need to gently pry out the 2 lights with a padded flat screwdriver & disconnect the plug-in connector, push in on the little buttons at the bottom of the door and then pry the 1/2 " push in plugs out, (these are all reusable) remove the handle/grip by gently prying & the panel will more or less "pop" out of the holders. It's a push fit once the bottom retainers are removed. Good Luck

2003 Nissan Murano hatch back door won't unlock or open. Glitchy for a long time, always opened eventually with a ritual of locking/unlocking using the remote/lock on the door, etc. Upon opening,...

I have a 2004 Murano. I opened the small hatch and with a screw driver and someone on the outside managed to open the hatch. The problem appears to be bent pieces inside. After straightening them out and using a good silicon spray, mine works again. It should be lubricated quite frequently.

Driver door won't lock with key fob

Check the locking solenoid / actuator in the door behind the panel, could be burned out or loose wire. It should take about 20-30 minutes to open, fix it and close the door panel if there's no major problem. Autozone might be able to help out with a solenoid.
