Most lilely the wire is broken to the lock motor inside the wire insulation, this is where the door wires go through the rubber tube into the body of the car. This wire moves and breaks connection when the door is closed, this is very common on all cars with power windows and locks no matter who makes them.

Drivers side door closed and will not open.


Remove inner door latch and try operating the rod manually (vice grips). If locked, spray everything inside the door with WD-40 or the like and try operating the lock.

I've heard it can be done with some difficulty. You'll probably have to remove your rear seats, or at least the bottom seat portion, to get the inside panel off. Usually, the easy fix for troublesome door locks is a good cleaning, and a little light oiling. That one on the rear should be checked for operation when you get to it.

97 Ford Explorer back doors won't open


A common problem with these are that the power door lock actuator freezes, and wont let the door unlock all the way,or the latch rusts up and again wont let door open, see if the lock arm is going up and down all the way, if not then try grabbing the lock with pliers and pulling up and then opening the door, or pull and push a few times then try to open the door, good luck.

Rear passenger side door will not open


Have you tried to open it from the back seat? If you have then you will have to take off the cover on the door and there should be a release button. Most covers are easily removed with a flat head screw driver - If your door requires a motor to operate than that is your problem. Hope this helps.
