Lol. remove the door panel, and use some white lithium grease in a spray can and spray all of the rods and components in the door, and work the door handle back and forth, this should free it all up....

Opening the drivers door doesnt automatically open the passangers door


Some vehicle locking systems allow a single button press to unlock the driver's side door and require a second button press to unlock the passenger side door. Likewise, use of the key to unlock the driver's side door does not automatically unlock the passenger side.

06 Sorento, passanger front door wont unlock.. Do we have to take the whole door panel off? is it maybe the motor ? Tryed to unlock with remote and manual.. It just wont open.


I take it that this is the only door that does not work. This being the case does the door sound as if the electric motor is working inside the door? When you try to unlock with the key does the key turn and nothing happens? If this be the case then a plastic clip that joins the key lock arm and the lockmechanism is likly to be broken requiring trim removall and replacing parts not very expensive but hard to get out. I find removing four bolts holding seat in position and removing the seat is the easy way

My 2005 kia optima passenger door wont open from inside or out even when unlocked how do i get it open


just had a similar problem with my optima on the drivers side, power lock and manual lock would not open drivers door, after fighting with the door i did get it open and took the door panel off, lubed all internal parts of the door and it still was sticking, ended up to be the lock itself and had to get it fixed at a local garage, $173.00 later its fine, they had to replace the lock . Hope this might help you
