    Yes I have checked the kids safety lock mechanism and it seems like it is jammed. It does not freely release and lock. Is there a way to fix this?

  • jackcando Oct 23, 2008

    Thanks for the all possible solutions to this problem. Is it difficult to take the door panel off? Is there any reference diagram. I am a total newbie when it comes to cars. I have a lot of tools, but not too handy with them.

    Thanks again, you guys are good!

Have you looked to see if the baby lock has been activated.Its a small lever near the outer door lock on the door it stops kids from opening door so they dont fall out.

    They are usualy quite stiff but aside from lubricating and moving lever backwards and forward a few times therse not a lot you can do except take the door panel off to make sure the inner door handle lock activation is working correctly Sometimes the plastic clips break so handle can no longer activate lock.Do you have central locking as this also could be jammed.Unfortunately door panel will have to come off to inspect and rectify.Good luck

How do I get my rear hatch door open,when you can't open it from the outside?

You can get it open in two ways: By using your key fob and remotely opening latch or by pulling inside panel on rear hatch and manually pulling lever to get latch to release. Most times when you cant get rear hatch to open normally is because cable from outside release handle to latch broke. Have cable and release mechanism inspected and replace worn or broken parts as needed.

Rear passenger door will not open inside and outside latch useless window works no damage to door

there is a bulletin on this problem, the latch is defective & needs replacement unfortunately ford doesn't recognize this as a safety recall so you have to pay $$$ I'm working on a customer's car for their passenger front door not opening bad latch. you have to get inside the door & on the latch there is a small release lever you move with a small screwdriver to open the door then replace the latch.
