The bottom latch was rusted locked. I had to pull on bottom rod after top was already released and kick out the bottom of the door. I had to replace the bottom latch.

Cannot open the rear doors on a 2001 ram 1500 quad cab. The door will move just not open.


Are the doors locked, but not quite latched? If they're definitely not locked, then you may have to peel the inside door panels out to get to the strike mechanisms.

Dome light will not go out


Are you having any other weird electrical problems like, stereo door speaker not working or power window or door lock not working? If you are it may be a bare wire in the door wiring. That is a common problem on 2004 Rams. Normally it is a rear door if it is a quad cab. Short is normally in the boot going from the door to the cab. If not then the problem is probably the dome light switch found on each door. I believe it is in the door handle and each one would have to be tested.

Cannot open the rear doors on a 2001 ram 1500 quad cab. Is there a diagram that shows how the latches should be attached to the handles?


The only place to find the answer would be in a service manual for the truck. Or check with your dodge dealer, it could be something else.

I have a 2000 dodge 1500 extended cab and can't open the rear doors. The problem is in the latch mechanism unit that is mounted to the underside of the door. the claw (thats what i call it) won't...


Had the same problem with my 99 ram. The problem is the bottom latch. It freezes up due to under use. The only way I could get mine open to fix it was to pull the door handle and get inside the cab and kick the door at the bottom at the same time as pulling the handle to get the latch to let loose. Had to kick it hard and several times. Good luck

Sounds like either a linkage rod came off or the interior handle is broken. either way you have to take the interrior door panal off to see which it is.

Linkage has come off inside the door. You must remove the inner door panel and reattach or replace if broken.
