A rubber boot around the lock motor can disintegrate and get caught up in the motor gear or if the link age assembly to the motor gear has been fixed with epoxy glue ( allowing no free play) then these symptoms can develope which allows the automatic door locks to work but very stubborn almost impossible to open manually.

When in gear door locks


If the interior door handle doesn't open the door, then you have a push bar loose or bent inside the door. If once you unlock the door from the outside you can use the interior door handle to open the door, then you either have a bad lock unlock relay, or the door lock unlock actuator itself is bad.

Why will my drivers door not open,even though it locks and unlocks with key fob.


Sounds like the activator rod that goes from the door Handle to the latch is disconnected. You will have to get the door open to repair it and a good mechanic or tow truck driver can use a slim Jim kit to get the latch to release and then you can pull the door panel and find the problem.

Rear door zr2 tracker 2003 wont unlock


Open the window and reach out to open the door with the outside door handle,before closing the door and locking it, remember to put the window back up.

As for the trunk it should have a emergency release trunk handle from the inside.

My 2005 ford focus has a red light that just came on. It looks like a lock and now it wont start. What is this?


This is the key security system. Somehow youv'e set it off. Used the wrong key tried to open the door with the alarm on. Opened the door or trunk from the inside after locking it from the outside. If your the real owner of the car it'll be no problem to get it fixed. If you have the correct key lock the doors from the outside with the key and lock it twice ( the doors ( all of them ) should lock). Leave the car alone for a minute, maybe 5. Then unlock the door twice, all the doors should unlock the second time. Enter the car and start it with the key. If you with a remote door lock fob that can work too. If this fails then try a different door or even the trunk. Sometimes the driver doorlock switch wears out or gets ice in it and unlocking a different door or useing the remote can get you going again.

We live in a cold state (MN) and this year though it hasn't been incredibly cold our 2000 Kia Sephia constantly freezes shut. The power door lock on the driver side won't move from the inside or the...


part of the problem with being in such a cold place is even tho its so cold there is still moisture in the air. if you door wont close or open, you need to check the latch out and make sure its not just bent. as for not being able to unlock you door. the latching system is connected to the lock and handle. if the latch wont move don't use wd-40 that will make it worse. you need to pull open the door panel and get it greased with a grease gun. wd-40 will not keep the parts moving in that kind of cold. if latch wont reset
when you get it open, it wont close. just grease it up. oh it would help if you get water guard for your windows. protect you parts from freezing. take care.

Door wont open from inside or outside


I have just fixed mine. You have to remove the rear seat then remove the side panel that the door is jammed on.Now looking at the door post you will see two screw heads that are crome in colour. I took a small grinder and took of some of the length of the screw These two screws is what holds the door latch to the body which holds the door closed I then drilled a hole threw the bracket and the screws both screws then broke the bracket loose,pushed the screws in and the door opened.Had to buy a new lock assembly from a wrecking yard and took out the to screws I drilled out.of the same car I got the lock assembly Good Luck It worked for me
