I locked the door latch maualy at the door of 2000 ford explorer how do release it


Look into the lock opening on the door frame for a part you can reach with a flat-blade screwdriver.
These can normally be opened if prying on the lock mechanism.

If you want to risk another door, watch the mechanism move when locking it manually.
You should then be able to reset both.

What part do I need? It opens from the inside. The handle is not snapped.


Are you saying the inside door handle isnt snapped,but the door wont open by pulling on the inside door handle or is it the outside door handle thats not working??Both the inside and outside door handle has a spring and other components on the backside of the handle which cant really be seen unless you remove the whole door handle assembly.One of these components are most likely broken or the rod that attaches between each handle and the locking mechanism(part that locks into the door striker to keep the door closed and releases it too)might have come loose from the back of the handle.The outside handle is usually mounted to the door by pop rivets or bolts/nuts.The inside handle is usually mounted with screws,but it really depends on what kind of car youre driving.Youll probably have to remove the handle to inspect it for damage.Open the door and watch the locking mechanism for movement while youre pulling on the door handle.If it doesnt move when you pull on the handle,the handle is definitely broke or the rod has come loose from the back of the handle.

I have 97 souvreign and when opening doors just driver door and one one back doors open and other two doors not opening even by pulling handle manually does not open..


If they're power locks your door lock actuators might be faulty. If you push the button and it sounds like its opening or you manually unlock the doors and they still won't open, that would be my first guess. The motors might be getting weak and not have enough oomph to actually move. If it's manual locks, the locking mechanism could be messed up inside and is sitting in the lock position and won't move no matter what or the rod came off either way it will be Tricky getting the door panel off with the doors closed :)

Try to insert very large screwdriver into locking mechanism and try pushing it OUT. Make sure door locks are off. It should pop open.

My car door does not close,door lock is jamb


Check the latch assembly where the door closes. If the latch claw is closed it won't latch. Make sure the door is unlocked. Insert a screwdriver into the middle of the claw (circular opening where the striker latches). Open the door handle from inside or outside and pull sideways on the latch it should pop open. If it doesn't then the lock mechanism is in the lock position. Remove door panel follow lock rod to the latch and manually try to move the lever to the unlock position. If all fails you probably will need a new latch assembly.

Both door locks do not work properly. I can only open the drivers side door from the inside. And the passengers side door will not open at all. This is on a 1999 Ford Explorer Sport.


Do any of the door handles inside or out feel sloppy (when you pull on them does it feel like there is nothing connected to them)?

If so that the levers on the latches are probably rusted up and sticking. Say for example the outside door handle lever that is attached to the door latch is stuck half way in the open position it will not allow the door lock mechanism to lock or unlock. The door will still latch and stay closed because the lever will not be stuck far enough to release the latch mechanism from hold on to the striker.

I have had pretty good luck removing the door latch (the part that actually holds the door closed) and soaking in penetrating lube and working all the levers until they move freely.

As far as the door that doesn't open I suspect it is stuck in the lock position and one of the handle mechanisms is in the partial up position. Again the symptom would be a sloppy door handle. That lever will need to be put back in its normal resting position before the door can be unlocked. This can be done with a slim jim. Once you have the door panel apart on the door that still opens you will be able to see the parts you need to move. You can then use that knowledge to move those parts on the other door that doesn't open.

If you don't have any experience with a lockout kit (i suspect most people do not) that that's the best way I can describe how you can do this yourself.

The rear door will not stay closed. When I operate the latch mechanism in the door manually (move it to the closed position) I can move it back open without pulling on the door handle. The other side...


My 2005 Equinox just had the same problem on the rear passanger door. My husband took a heat gun to the latch about 10 minutes ago, and now the door latches.

Doors won't close


Manually UNLOCK the door button or slide. HOLDING the OUTSIDE DOOR HANDLE in the OPEN position, with your other hands finger, LIFT OPEN the latch, and close your door. Hope this helps.
