Passenger door open


BMWs have solenoid actuated door locks (electric box that sits on top of the door latch - some years integrated into latch) that electrically "deadbolt" the locks. The door panel will have to be removed with door locked/closed (may result in damage to panel), electrical mechanism removed from latch, and latch manually unlocked. It's a very effective theft deterrent system, but when it fails, it can be a severe pain. The failure is quite common; they should almost be a regular service/replacement item on BMWs.

Hope this helps,

Door locks unlocks


Sounds like the main wiring loom into the door has been damaged.
Check near the hinges, where the door swings, to see if any damaged wires. Does the door lock and unlock from the drivers side switch?

Passenger door lock wont work and cannot even pull or push the unlock mechanism


You will need to remove the door panel and replace the electric door lock motor in the bottom of the door, they get water in them and jam from rust.

Door latch fails intermittently (1997 Jaguar XK8)

Passenger door will not open


I can think of two possibilities:

1) The electronic lock is malfunctioning and forcing the door to lock. From the inside of the car, try forcing the lock to the 'unlocked' position. If you can do this with your had, but it 'snaps' back to 'locked' then it's an electrical problem. Possibly the lock solenoid itself, or the BCM.

2) If you cannot force the lock to the 'unlocked' position, then it's some sort of mechanical problem - maybe the lock is just jammed. Try spraying oil into the locking mechanism from the outside and working the lock until it's free. Otherwise, remove the interior door panel and diagnose the mechanical lock.

Electrical mechanism will not unlock front passenger door nor can it be unlocked manually at door handle. Inside door handle will not move so door cannot be opened. Consequently, cannot remove inner door...


possibly your linkage from the electric solenoid and door lock to the locking mechanism has either fallen apart inside the door or also possibly it has gotten "over-center" and cannot operate properly from either the automatic electric or manually from the key, can you hear and click from the solenoid when you operate this electrically? and see lock button move a little,this would be a sign it's over-center.

2000 Ford Focus electric locks/acuator failure recurring problem


I would follow their recommendation as I had the same problem with my car. They unhooked the power to that door and it was fine. The problem was a short in the wiring in the door that was causing the problem. So maybe get them to check the wiring in the door as well.

Door locks


Pls explain if you have electric door locks or not. A seized solenoid (if you do) will preevnt the latch from working...Regardless of whether you do or not, anything wrong with the alternator will give not you door lock issues. You problem is purely mechanical. The electronic function (option) just assists the mechanical (non-powered) door locks. The doors should work; (the lock/unlock/open/close) even with the battery disconnected, using the manual controls.
