Question about 1995 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme

Open Question

1995 Cutlass Supreme 2 dr. Driver door will not open. Latch will not release as though the lock is on. Door panel is off I can see the linkage operate. Need an exploded view of latch to see if there i

I had replace the outer door handle, this was a bad design. It has left the owner locked out more than once because the linkage collapses over time and use I think, and he had broke the handle. I replaced it and it worked a number of times and I thought it was good. I jumped in to move the car and couldn't get out. The handle doesn't reach the normal release point where it feels some resistance before forcing the latch open. Maybe the lock isn't releasing but I can see the linkage move because it have the door panel off and although it looks ok it's not pushing the latch and I need a view of it to see where the problem might be.

SOURCE: Door handle linkage disconnects

You'll have to remove the door panel,yes the whole thing,and look for any broken or missing parts in your door latch/lock linkage.Be careful not to break any wires that power your windows/locks while removing the panel.It may be just a plastic clip that holds the linkage together has fallen off.Check in the bottom of the door well for parts that may have fallen down there. A manual from the library or online is a big help here.

There's a few ways. Either break your bumper grill, which I don't like to do to access the hood cable at the latch to pull, or cut the cable where it connects the the lever inside the car. Strip the plastic coating enough to where you can get a pliers or vise grip on the center metal cable to tug. If the latch under the hood itself is seized, try spraying some WD-40 at it and letting it sit for a few minutes. Sometimes it takes pulling up on the hood and pulling on the cable at the same time. Once open, spray more on the latch.

Cutlass Supreme Door catch:
Other than calling a locksmith, you may have to remove inner door panels and plastic waterproof sheet which will give you access to the lock-mechanism inside the door.
Then try moving the wire rod attached to door-catch directly. A linkage-rod or pinion may have come off.
Also try levering catch away with long bar or screwdriver.
You may have to buy silicone sealer for re-applying the waterproofing sheet, and new plastic clip-in studs to hold the panel in place.
These studs sometimes break when panel is pulled off.
Hope this helps.

I can't open the driver side door on my 1994 olds cutlass supreme

Pull the rod that actuates the door latch mechanism, AFTER you make sure the door lock is in the unlocked position.

If the door lock is partially engaged, the door latch mechanism won't release.

Door lock

When the actuator moves the latch up, it connects the outside door handle to the opening mechanism. When the latch is down, the outside door handle is disconnected from the mechanism so that it cannot be opened. So in this case your latch needs to be replaced, the latch or one of its parts is malfunctioning. the outside handle is never beening disconnected from the latch. remove the door panel visually inspect for damage, and take the proper repair
