Hi

Sounds like the handle link rod has come adrift.

The door trim requires to come off, for a closer inspection and diagnosis, and rectification.

Hope this is of help.

Good Luck !

John.

This is only a possible solution to your problem. I had similar problem with my car. It turned out that the window locking toggle on the driver door not only prevented the other windows from being opened by passengers but also controlled the door locks. When I unlocked the window control I was able to unlock the door. Another possibility is the armature inside the door has come off the locking mechanism.

SOURCE: Driver side door lock seems mechanically "stuck"

The panel pops off. There are cheap tools to help with this at your local AutoZone. You may be able to just pull them off, you will need new clips which are just a couple of dollars or else your panels will be loose when you put them on. There maybe a screw or 2 that will be hiding and you will find them as your taking the panel off, start at the bottom. As for your original problem I would say the linkage is binding up some where and needs a bit of grease. Hope this helps. Richard

Why will my drivers door not open,even though it locks and unlocks with key fob.


Sounds like the activator rod that goes from the door Handle to the latch is disconnected. You will have to get the door open to repair it and a good mechanic or tow truck driver can use a slim Jim kit to get the latch to release and then you can pull the door panel and find the problem.

The inside door handle of my 2002 honda crv is sticking out in the open position, and both the inside and outside door handle of the drivers side wont open the door kkk


Your wire is probably broke. You have a thin piece of metal that goes from the door handle to the key slot. When you open it, it releases. I would say that needs replaced. You will have to take off the inner panel to get to it. There is probable 4-5 screws you have to take out. After that, you might have to pull the plastic and some foam out in order to have access to your problem. Best of luck to you. Hope this helps.

Hi I have a porsche boxster 1997 and my passenger door wont open at all, when i go to unlock the driver's side unlocks and the car beeps twice. Please help


Might be the central locking system. Try using the key in the door (rather than the remote control) to deactivate the security system. Also make sure that the center console is completely closed (this is part of the central locking system).

Front driver side door wont open from outside.


Sounds like its the bar that goes from the latch in the side of the door up to the handle. It will need to be reattached. If that dosent seem to be the problem you may want to replace handle and all bars in the door with parts from your local junkyard.

My driver side door wont open how do i get it


sounds like the door lach is sticking
use some wd40 spray the lock and let it sit 4 a while
now since you have the inside skin off reach inside the door with 1 hand and try and open the door from the outside and see if the lock bar moves it usualy pushes down i think on a lach
if it goes up and down with no resistance make sure it is contacting the lach if yes make sure the door is unlocked
somtimes the lock is just stuck
after unlock open the door
push down on lock bar attached to lock then pull up on it if that fails to open door
after that all fails unlock door have friend pull handle and then give the door a good kick from inside just remember not the kick the glass
