SOURCE: broken tailgate latch

Remove the paneling from inside. Than you can use a flathead screwdriver to pry the latch rod and latch enough to pop open the door.

SOURCE: My outside door handle and my inside door handle

most cars have a rod that gos from the handle to the latch. you need to get behind the door panel some how that is going to be hard with the door closed and pull the rod. your door should open most likely parts of the door panel will brake i am not sure what your door panel looks like but where the handle gos through the panel you might be able to get the rod through that hole but im not sure

child latch only does not allow door to be opened from inside and should open ok from outside. you must have a faulty lock. very hard to get it open now,try stripping door card off if possible with door closed.

SOURCE: my2008 impalaLT, rear passenger door won't open.I think the latch isn't releasing.neither inside nor outside door pulls realease door.door lock goes up and down when door swich is pushed.

It may be possible, if you have the rear seat out of the way. On some cars, it is possible, just a little tricky.

How do i remove the inside rear door panel on a 2008 infiniti fx-35

If it opens from the outside, check on the door itself near the latch assembly for a little black lever that moves back and forth...that is the child safety rear door lock and when engaged, wont allow the door to open from the inside...setting the lever to free position should allow door to open (pg 3-5 of owners manual)

My rear passenger side door will not close

Just use the outside door handle and pull on the latch that is closed. If you use the inside door handle then you will have to undo the child lock.
Pull on the latched that is closed while holding the outside door handle....Make sure that it is unlocked...

My left side rear door will not open, (from the inside or outside), is this a child lock provblem, where do I locate the relay?

Sounds like a siezed door lock latch. if you cannot unlock the lock then it will be a siezed latch and possible a lock actuator. the siezed latch puts strain on the actuator until it no longer works.

The locking mechanism on the rear passenger door isnt working.The door will close but the metal catch will not lock.How do i repair?

I have seen some times the latch assemblys get rusty or dirty and the inside or outside door handles are pulled and the latch assembly siezes in the open position not allowing the door to latch closed..but this may not be the case .. check to see also if the child lock switch position is not stuck in the halfway position, also check if the latch has not flipped to the close position before the door was closed thus jamming the striker latch..this can be fixed by pulling the catch out while opening the door handle..hope this helps good luck...

Rear passenger door will not open

If the door won't open from either the inside or outside than there is a problem with the latch assembly or alignment. You can use the other rear door to see how the child lock works. Meanwhile, you'll have to remove the door panel on the right rear door from inside the vehicle. Then you can reach inside with a screwdriver and flashlight and work the latch free. Once you get it open you can further diagnose if it is alignment or a faulty latch assembly. It's not going to be easy getting the door panel off from inside or working the latch to release. I hope this helps.

Volvo s40 rear doors wont open inside or outside

There is a child safety switch on the rear latch assembly that prevents opening from the inside handle. This switch may be on. Check your owners manual for more info.

Door locks

Regarding the rear door child locks: There is a small lever on the latch side of the door, you can only see it with the door open. Move it to the other position.

Regarding the front door locks: You either have a bad door lock switch, or the power lock solenoids are beginning to fail. To check this, you will need to pull the door panels off, & measure the actual voltage at the solenoids whilst manipulating the lock switch. If you have 12 + VDC, I would suggest replacing the door lock solenoids. Not hard to change, but it IS time consuming. Best left to a dealer. Expect to pay 1 hour per side to change each solenoid.
