SOURCE: DOOR WON'T OPEN FROM INSIDE OF NISSAN ALTIMA 2002 ON DRIVER'S SIDE

There is a cable that attaches to the inside door latch release handle. The plastic that retains this cable is most likely broken. I have seen this before. If the retainer is not holding the cable sheath correctly, the entire cable moves when the handle is pulled and does not release the door latch.

Remove the door panel and inspect this cable. You will see 2 cables (one is for the door lock). If the plastic is broken, you will need a new interior handle assembly.

Hope this is helpful!!

linkage on inside of door has come undone. take off inside door panel and you will find a small rod that goes to the lock mechanism where the door closes opposite the hinges. follow the handle to the door lock.the nylon bushing may have broken.they are cheap to purchase at auto part stores.

go inside, lift on handle, then beat the **** out of the door pounding it like your trapped in it trying to get out. latch mechanism is probably corroded and froze shut. once open, spray with wd40 and work the lever a lot. then get door panel off to see if handle is broken inside

SOURCE: 2000 nissan pathfinder back doors will not open

Are the doors manual or auto? Are your door lock actuators engaging when you hit the open/close button? Did you check all your fuses to make sure there all good? If every thing is checking good, and the door wont open from inside or outside, then your problem is : Inside your door are a series of rods, one goes from your inner door handle straight to the door lock assembly (it is dislocated from opening the door roughly) and one goes from the actuator to the door lock assembly which I believe also is dislocated, only way to fix this problem is to weasel your way through the edge of the door panel with a very long screwdriver (16-20") and a light and try to trigger the mechanism directly on the lock to open. This is alittle tricky and might require a trained technician to perform because with the door closed your panel might not come off which will raise the risk of destroying your door panel, in the long run paying a little money could save you a lot more if you break that panel!

Passenger door is locked shut and will not open


if its the front door and not working from inside or outside then prob a faulty lock actuator, these a sealed and will need a new one. if only not working from the inside remove the inner handle and check if the handle or cable is broken. if its the rear door, could be the child lock is on, the switch can be seen with the door closed and can be pushed with a screwdriver from the inside. the rear doors can break the inner handle, the outer handle and the cable for the actuator. need to remove the trim and inspect all these.

Nissan pathfinder rear door won't open


I have had this issue twice on my '98 Pathfinder. The hinge inside the exterior door latch rusts over time and sticks. As suggested in some other answers, the BEST way to get it open is as follows: Pull the latch open and spray WD-40 into the handle openings using the spray tube that came with the WD-40. You may need to repeat this. Note, when I use the word 'latch', I'm talking about the part you pull to open the door, not the lock, which is a separate part inside the door connected to the latch by a metal rod.

There are many ways to then hit the latch to jar the stuck hinge loose. To prevent damage, I folded up an old dish towel, placed it over the latch, and pounded it with medium force with a rubber mallet. It may take just a few hits, or it could take literally hundreds. Initially, the exterior latch will flop loosely. You can see if you're making progress by checking the latch periodically. It will gradually start to break loose and this will be reflected in restored tension in the previously floppy latch. The longer you hit, the tension will eventually be felt through the whole range of motion in the latch. Once full tension is restored, it will open the door.

The first time I did this repair, I simply considered it fixed and stopped working on it. Big mistake, because the locks stuck again in just a couple months and took a lot more work to get open the second time. These latches are cheap and easy to replace (check rockauto.com or other sites - I got my new latches for $12 each).

You must be VERY careful when changing them, otherwise you'll be opening up the door, which isn't necessary if you do it right. To change the latch - remove the two grommets from the door jamb at the latch. Use a 10mm nutdriver to remove the two nuts holding the latch. Care must be taken not to drop the nuts inside the door, but the nuts are angled slightly upward, so gravity is on your side.

Next, CAREFULLY pull the latch out of the door the minimum amount necessary to clear the opening and expose the latch rod that runs from the latch to the lock. IMPORTANT: Before removing the rod from the latch, get a pair of small locking pliers (long hemostat or needle nose vise grips) and attach it to the rod about 1/2" below the latch to hold it in place. This is necessary because once you remove the two nuts holding the latch to the door and the nylon grommet that attaches the rod to the latch, the only thing holding the rod in place is gravity. If you lift the rod more than about 1" while doing this work, it will disengage from the lock inside the door. I learned this the hard way on my first door and actually dropped the rod to the very bottom inside the door. Once the rod is secured with pliers, remove the rod from the nylon retainer clip on the latch and pull the latch free from the door. Installation of the new latch is the opposite procedure.

The second door was a breeze to fix since I didn't have to remove the door panel to retrieve the rod - the whole replacement took less than 10 minutes.

Nissan 1990 pathfinder doors won't unlock


Door locks are powered through a circuit breaker (location not indicated) which applies 12V to the door lock timer. Insertion of the key causes the door lock actuator to unlock the door ...unless the timer prevents it. It is doubtful that all the doors could have failed lock components

if you are hearing clicking noise but the door won't open then the door lock actuator is not releasing the lock. not uncommon problem ,but the car is still new. most of the time this type of problem starts after 5or6 years. I hope your car is still under warranty.

I have a 1997 nissan pathfinder and the side back doors wont open from the inside or the outside and the door handles seem to be broken but i dont remember them braking


You probably need to grease the doors' hardware, and the child safety lock is on. Let the windows down, and you can use a coat hanger to unlock the doors, Then lubricate the locking mechanisms on each doors' jam.
