You need to use the latch inside the car, then use a plastic pry to open the gas latch. Once you have it opened, you can spray the mechanism down with silicone lubricant. Don't forget to get the calbe.

I have a 2001 Dodge Caravan. This back door on the drivers side will not unlock. It started this winter and we thought the lock was frozen, but now that it is 65 out the door will still not unlock. What...

you will have to pull the inner panel off the door to look inside the panels to inspect the door latch to see if it may be seized or the lock mechanism is not moving due to broken parts,if the lock is not moving far enough you can reach in and manually unlock it.if the latch is seized you can spray it with penetrating oil and operate the release handle and try to force the latch open with a screw driver or something to open it.once open you can remove the latch and soak it in oil to try and free it up if not then just replace it.

1994 nissan sentra drivers door wont open from inside or out is it possible to pop door latch with screw driver or anything to get door open so i can remove the door panel and get a better look at things

Here's a trick I learned from a local body shop where I live.
Get a sawzall and cut the post that the latch hooks to.

This will open the door for you. Then repair whatever is required in the door, and replace the post on the inside of the body is cheaper than damaging anything else in the door.

Good luck on this repair.

Can't open the trunk of my nissan sentra 1999

you have a bad trunk latch, you will need to replace that latch, its not a hard repair though, like three nuts, you will need to get the trunk open from the inside though, toy with the latch until it opens, you will then be able to replace the part.

I cannot open the trunk on my Sentra.The remote doesn't do it nor does the switch inside. I only have a valet key so I can't open it from the trunk lock itself. The back seat fold down release latch is...

Hello and thank you for using FixYa!

What year is your SE-R? if is newer that 2001, just go to a Nissan dealer and have a cheap key made for you so you can open your trunk. They can get your key code for you. If the valet key is the only key you have, then you may want to get another key made for your car. Your key may have a chip in it that will have to get programed to your car for it to start. But if you get a cheap key, then it can open doors, but will not start the car.

Thanks Jay!
