Common problem on 2001 Ford Explores. The reason why your door handle doesn't unlock the door(can't be unlocked by remote either)is due to a broken spring located on the backside of the door handel INSIDE the door. True that your one(or two) of your small exterior springs on your door handle are broken(will cause your handle to flap) but this IS NOT YOUR PROBLEM. The door locks will work if there is a bit of tension holding the handle bracket up. I know it's hard to explain without pics. but here's the ONLY WAY TO FIX THIS. It's not that hard.......... Remove the door panel, only a few screws and a few more holding trim around exit handle then, pull out "snap in" clips on bottom. With a flashlight you'll see back side of door handle. To get to that area you'll have to remove one bolt holding a window frame. Do that(with window in up position) then slide down rail, out of your way. Now, get back to handle. With your light aimed at the backside of handle left slowly the door handle as normal, and you'll realize(while looking at the mechanism) that tension(pulling down of bracket) needs to occur in order for locks(manual and remote)to work properly. Trust me.....you'll figure it out. Once you do, get a spring(pen spring, 30 cent hardware store spring, any small spring!) and hook one end to bracket and the other end to ANYTHING(OUT OF THE WAY) below the door handle thus, causing SLIGHT tension. Try your locks...THEY WILL WORK! YEAH! Replace that one window frame bolt(try your window...just the make sure), replace door panel and your done. TOTAL COST: 30 cents or FREE(if you have a small spring) Ford dealers will charge $150 to $285! Yikes!

SOURCE: bmw door won't open

THE MECHANISM FOR ATTACHING THE HANDLE TO THE LOCK CAN BREAK WITHOUT WARNING. I HAD TO REPLACE MINE LAST SATURDAY. IT IS A DIY JOB IF YOU HAVE THE TOOLS AND ARE COMPETENT. THE WINDOW WINDER MECHANISM HAS TO BE REMOVED AS WELL AS THE GLASS AS MOST OF THE WORK IN REMOVING AND REFITTING THE HANDLE CAN ONLY BE DONE WITH THESE REMOVED. IT TOOK ME ABOUT THREE HOURS AS THE WINDER MECHANISM WAS RIVETED TO THE DOOR AND THESE HAVE TO BE DRILLED OUT TAKING CARE NOT TO HIT THE GLASS WITH THE DRILL BIT. ALSO, THERE IS A SLIDING CLIP WHICH MUST BE PUSHED ACROSS TO REMOVE THE OUTSIDE HANDLE TRIM BEFORE YOU CAN REMOVE THE HANDLE. I DID IT WITHOUT A SERVICE MANUAL, BUT I RECCOMEND YOU GET ONE BEFORE TRYING THIS YOURSELF AS IT PROVED TRICKY. IF YOU DECIDE TO TRY IT, MAKE SURE TO HAVE POP RIVETS AND A RIVETING GUN AS WELL AS FOUR 4.5 MM FLAT WASHERS ON HAND BEFORE YOU START AS YOU NEED THEM TO REFIT THE WINDOW WINDER MECHANISM. ALSO, TAKE CLEAR DIGITAL PHOTOS AS YOU GO SO YOU WILL KNOW WHERE THINGS CAME FROM AND WHAT THE ASSEMBLED ITEMS SHOULD LOOK LIKE AT EVERY STAGE. IT'S NOT ROCKET SCIENCE BUT DOES REQUIRE CARE. LASTLY, IF YOU GET SOMEONE TO DO IT FOR YOU, MAKE SURE THEY KNOW ABOUT THE SLIDING CLIP PREVIOUSLY MENTIONED BECAUSE IF THEY TRY TO PRISE THE TRIM OFF, THE PAINTWORK WILL BE DAMAGED AND THE TRIM WILL BREAK. OH YEAH, BE PREPARED FOR A LARGE LABOUR BILL RELITAVE TO THE APPARENT SIZE OF THE TASK AS IT WILL TAKE TIME NO MATTER WHO DOES IT. GOOD LUCK

SOURCE: rightside interior door handle not opening door

It could mean the rod connecting the handle to the latch has broken. You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. and you can access the innards of the door

SOURCE: broken passenger door handle

Same problem. I have a 2000 Suzuki Esteem GL. A year ago the driver's door handle broke. Heard a sound and then it was loose. Could not open it from outside. Had to open front passenger door, open the driver's door from inside and then go out again to enter from the driver's door. FRUSTRATING. My mechanic had to take the door apart to fix it. Just a week ago, my front passenger door died on me. Can't open it from outside nor inside. The door won't open. This is such a stupid problem that costs lots to repair. Never will buy a Suzuki again. Had too many problems with it (had to fix gas tank, doors that won't open, front axle...).

SOURCE: Interior Door Handle

This was a three minute repair, once I had the replacement handle. Leave the door panel alone! Remove the single screw holding the old handle in place. Use a flat blade screwdriver to jimmy the old handle away from the door about an inch. There are two plastic clips holding it to the rods, one for the locking mechanism and one for the latch. Use the flat blade screwdriver to unclip these two connectors. Remove the broken latch, and don't worry, the rods won't disappear into the door! Reverse these steps with the new handle (insert rods, attach clips, wiggle assembly into place, and fasten with single screw). You're done!

Door wont open from outside


So when you replaced the handle, you verified the linkage was in good working order, correct? If the door opens using the interior handle I'd say it's not the latch, but either the handle or the linkage to the latch that's bad. Open up the door and do some investigating.

this could be a couple of problems 1 the handle portion that connects to the actuation rod is broken or the actuation rod has popped out of the handle. Either way you will need to remove the door panel to identify the problem.
