Can't open the back door of my 2002 Freelander SE - key or remote

Is there a way to open the back door from inside the car? I started having trouble in Nov - a one day problem - and now it will not open at all. Help! (Love the car, but now the sunroof doesn't work, the radio is just fuzz, coolant is leaking and now this...ahhhhhhhhh) (At 99,000 miles, 2nd transmission) Called my local dealer where I purchased the car and had all the work done for the past 7 years and they just tell me all this is just normal for this model.

    Thanks, but I am unable to open the rear door at back end of car - not the 2 back doors of the 4 doors - sorry if I did not make that clear - when you put your hand under the handle on the door nothing happens. Any ideas?

    I am having the same problems. I guess this is too common for this car.

    Any luck?

Someone has moved the slider for the child safety feature on the door.... it's a small leaver located on the door itself... have to look for it but it should be labelled.

It's designed so kids can't open the door while you are driving.


Please take a moment to rate this solution thanks

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

Try spraying wd40 on the door lock mechanism inside the door shell. It may just be a little stuck and lubrication can help.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

It sounds like your Power Door Lock Relay is working intermintently. Bypass the relay and test the Power Door Locks with a jumper wire direct from the battery, if they work with no hesitation then it is a bad relay.

Central locking

turn key twice when opening, ie turn right. once drivers door will unlock, turn twice passengers doors will unlock, and locking is turn anti clock wise once will lock all doors, turn twice will set door dead locks.dead locks will stop openand lock internal button working and handle from opening door. the same actions can be applied to the remote one press drivers door, two press passenger doors, press and hold unlock button for 5 seconds and rear window will open.

Hello and thank you for using FixYa!

What year is your SE-R? if is newer that 2001, just go to a Nissan dealer and have a cheap key made for you so you can open your trunk. They can get your key code for you. If the valet key is the only key you have, then you may want to get another key made for your car. Your key may have a chip in it that will have to get programed to your car for it to start. But if you get a cheap key, then it can open doors, but will not start the car.

Thanks Jay!
