    The door wouldn't open. I actually fixed the problem since I posted this. It took me a while, but I figured it out. I had to take the door panel off and reattach the piece that connects to the handle/lock. For anyone else who has this problem, the screws have to be undone near the handle and around the panel. That is how you get the panel off. Thank you for taking the time to answer this.

SOURCE: Passenger door won't open from inside on 98 S70

You will need to remove the door panel from the inside and look for any missing links or bent parts that are causing the problem. Use a trim tool to get the panel off. Unscrew the arm rest. Have a magnet on a telescoping wand hand to fish any parts that fell to the bottom of the door out.

SOURCE: 2001 Kia Sportage: 3 of the 4 windows will not

I have a 99 Kia Sportage that had the exact same problem. You can fix the switches without having to spend ANY money to replace them! You first have to remove the door panel. Disconnect the wires going to the switch and then remove the switch from the panel. Remove all the screws from the botoom of the switch, including the ones holding the metal clips. Then carefully pry each side upwards from the locking tabs and pull the switch apart. BE CAREFUL not to lose the little metal rockers inside the switch! Now all you have to do is clean all the contacts and rockers with a brass wire brush, or fine sanpaper, (or even a good ink eraser will work). Then put the switch back together, reinstall it, and test it out! You'll be back in business and didn't spend a dime! I did this with my 98 Ford Windstar, too.

SOURCE: I went to open the driver side door and the

the door handle is either broke or a part of it has slipped loose, either way, you'll have to remove the inner door panel to get to it, this is not difficult, a few screws and the panel is retained by push in type plugs that can be pryed loose. the entire door latch assy is held in by screws and is serviced by replacement, the difficulty come with very tight area to work in, and is irritating and time consuming, if you are not good with tools i'd suggest a good mechanic or body shop. always get a quote!!

i just had to have this fixed on my 07 sedona on the bottom arm for the doors there are litle lock solinoids that go bad i would take it to a dealer to have it checked for the switch you can turn the power off to the doors and open them manualy but they are hard to open because you are pulling the cable instead of the motor doing it and this will not hurt the doors

Heaters blowing cold air from the passengers side and only warm air from the drivers side


Blend door actuator is broken.
The door is not opening and closing the way it should.90% of the time you have to remove the dashboard to replace it.
The other 10% can access it by removing the glove compartment and manually move the door (has to then be tied in place or it'll snap shut)
Some cars have 1 actuator and some cars have 2 of them.

2007 Chevy Tahoe rear door won't open


If the contacts that go to the door lock are corroded the switch will not work. Spray WD-40 from inside the vehicle into the space between truck and the door on the passenger side. A few squirts near the high to middle of the side of door should give enough conductivity to energize the lock.

Pasenger side door windows will not operate. Front one stuck open


you need to check the wire harness from the vehicle to the door for broken wires.the harness that goes through the door post and into the door gets a lot of flexing and will eventually break the wires in two.if this is not the case ,you may just need to replace the switch.
