Child lock switch controls are on the driver side door. If you use this controlling switch to unlock the doors and all doors open except for one door. It might be the switch on the driver side door or broken wiring in that switch leading to the door that does not open. You need a mechanics manual to trace the switch or wiring. Your best bet is to take it to a mechanic or a body shop if you find this difficult to do.
The adjusting lever for seat position is not locking into place. On the bottom of seat are runners on each side with holes in them that the adjusting lever tabs will lock in and hold seat in place. The seat slides on the runners if those tabs are raised. There is also a connecting wire or rod from the lever to the other side of seat so when lever is pulled up, tabs on both runners are raised for seat to slide. Something is keeping the tabs from locking into the holes on the runners in your car. Maybe the adjusting lever is broken somewhere, or the wire/rod came loose, or the lever is just dry and sticky and needs a shot of WD40 to loosen it up. If you can't see it and fix it with seat in place, then pull the seat back off for the repair. Good luck. Post back if my explanatiopn is not clear or you still need help.
Cable is broken or stretched. pick up the bottom seat and see the cable end if broken or slack from being stretched pull that cable and then the back should fold down. Ibelieve you will need to remove seat to repair the cable. the bottom seat when lifted pulls on a cable that releases the backs lock to fold down
The manual lever to release the seat is supposed to have a spring on it to return the release lever to the lock position, if the lever does not spring back when you let go of the seat adjustment lever then you know there is a missing, dis-connected, or broken return spring.
If this is the case try putting the seat where you want it to be and make sure that the adjustment lever returns to the lock position, now check to see if the seat will lock in with the adjustment lever in the lock position.
If it does lock in repair or replace the return spring.
Make sure that the adjustment lever is attached to the locking linkage and it does move the locking mechanism.
If it still does not lock into place then there is something wrong with the seat locking mechanism, and some WD-40 sprayed onto the seat rails and track might release a stuck mechanism, and if everything seems to be working alright, and you can see that the locking mechanism in the seat rail is moving in and out of the lock position, then the locking tabs are most likely sheered off and you will need to replace the seat.
Also look under the drivers side seat and compare the lever position and the linkage connections with the passenger side seat, and make sure that it is all operating like the drivers side seat.
Don't know this car, but should be not very much different:
No entire spare tyre there as common today I believe but a so called home comer.
Fixed back down under in the back boot, with a wooden ply board cover?
One bolt to fix her down is common.
Probably you are talking that you can not open the boot because hatch near driver seart is broken or the lock on your boot. Experienced that.
Then you have to struggle in by clapping rear seats down
Get all out and .
Most unwise is to free/ cut the points to which that boot board is hanging.
Now you can't Move the key to open the boot
to fix any rear lock problem. This problem is not the lock mostly (unless you already tried lubing that lock) but the cable coming from front drivers side that unlatches from the inside. It neds to be made moveable again.
Crawling in is a bit dificult to do so.
If only the handle is broken at drivers side, get access at that point by removing the seat (4 bolts I think, Have to shift that seat a bit to retract all four) Try to get now to that mechanism there and fix or replace what is broken. I doubt that the cable itself to the rear is broken.
If that car is in good shape, undoubtedly (only 2001) better have a mechanic at a dealer do it the fastest cheap way, since he has the fastest trick and the original part. If kept well these cars are to last 200.000 miles and 15 years easily. If you maintain them properly. Before becoming an independent brand, KIA has been an outstanding assembling contractor for bigger brands on the market.
So don't break anything you regret later.
Mostly these problems arise from not greasing, lubricating and cleaning the mechanisme.
