Sound like the link for the handle is broken.
you should have a pull handle near the floor at the driver seat.
if you can open the door with the pull handle. then the link to the latch is broken.
what you need to do is open the rear internal panel to get access to the latch.

    put some force at the rear of the slider, try to push the door closer to the catch. the door may be not square to the catch, then try to open it.

    make sure the top and the button both are square to the rail and the body planel.

    There shouldn't have any spring in the door lock area. see if you can take it out.

    As far as I know there are spring in the catch area, unles the catch is broken and the pring jus pop out. In that case. you have to change the catch. (non-repairable)

In my car if I move the catch on the door(click it like in closed position)like it was closed,then when I open the handle it releases open;this shows me closing/opening. Spray penetrating fluid on the metal/mechanism,possibly rusty and prevents smooth actions. Hope this helps.

2000 EXPEDITION REAR SIDE DOOR


Sounds like the child lock has been put on, it's to stop children from opening the door. Open the door, look at the door catch, there is a slide switch near the catch, try sliding it the opposite way. compare it's position to the one on the other side.

Dont work rear door locks


Your Tempo is equipped with early child-proof rear door locks...(cannot open from the inside when locked) Open the doors from the outside and look near the door catch for a small switch that moves back and forth...if still labeled it should show "Lock...Unlock" marks...leave on unlock for normal opening from inside. Hope this helps.

Rear passenger door won't stay closed


Door latch on door itself is in closed position if it will not close at all. In this case, open door and pull outside handle hard to pop open door latch. If you have door opening at random, door latch needs replacing or door catch on body is loose.

The trunk latch on my 2003 Nissan Altima will not work. Whenever I try to close it, the latch will not catch so I have it tied down with a rope. How can I fix this?


It sounds like the latch mechanism is in the closed position, which would prevent it from catching when you close the trunk lid. Try using your key to unlock the latch, or activate the trunk opener from inside the car. If neither of those works, you may have to use a screwdriver or similar bladed tool to manually open the latch. Also, check the metal bracket that the latch catches on. It could be out of position, or could have something covering it, preventing the latch from locking onto it.

Interior problem 1999 Lincoln Continental V8, Vehicle doors are closed and insrtument panel tells me one of the rear doors is ajar. this leaves me with the problem of not being able to read mileage and...


The door switch is part of the door catch assembly. Try spraying some WD40 into the catch and opening and closing the door several times. If the cam inside the catch will not free itself off, you will need a new catch. Hope this helps...

The rear passenger side door exterior handle will not open the door and the child lock is on which will not allow the door to be opened from the interior.


hi if you get a metal coat hanger open it up and put a hook on the end slide it down between the glass and the door by the door catch you should be able to knock the child lock off so you can open the door you have to get this just right and it can be a bit tricky but it does work
