2000 nissan pathfinder back doors will not open

I have a 2000 Nissan pathfinder and the back doors will not open any longer. It started as an intermittent problem (sometimes they would open and other times they wouldn't), now it's permanent. How do I fix them?

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!

I have a 2000 nissan pathfinder that when you open a door there is a clicking noise down below by the break pedal when you open the door. No lights working and when you turn the key the car is totally...

Sound goofy but honk your horn, if no sound then mostly your battery is dead. If a weak sound then your battery need to be charged, preferably a jump if possible. Get your main power source up first.

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.

2000 Nissan Pathfinder, one of back doors locked and will not open from inside or out months ago and last month the other back door locked, same thing, please help

you need a slim jim to open it with the lock assembly or rod has come off or the plastic keepr had broke off. only licenced mechanics would have one if yo have AAA auto tow ask them to unlock it for free once it's unlocked you will have to pull the door cover off and see if it's the rod or the clamp that holds the rod in place. Hope this helps.
