Question about 2000 Buick LeSabre

1993 Buick Regal front doors will not open

A few months ago my front passenger door stopped opening from the outside. I could still open it from the inside. Now the driver's side door is doing the same thing.

The car doors automatically lock when the car begins to move. Now I cannot get into the car at all, since I did not unlock all the doors when I parked it after the last time it was driven.

Question 1: How to unlock the doors so they can be opened and worked on?

Question 2: How to Fix the doors not able to be opened from the outside so they will open from the outside?

    I simply rigged a wire through the window and opened the car door from the handle using it.

If you got acess to a sim jim you can get them open with that, but if you don't know how to use one it best to get someone who does. i know if you call the police they will come out and unlock it for you. if they won't than most body shops have one, and they can open it for you, most likely at a cost, where the police will do it for nothing. as far as fixing once you get them open, most all major auto parts stores have web sites with step by step instructions and exploded views.

Well, the mirrors would be on the circuit with the courtesy lights. The door locks and windows would be on different circuits.
Why can't you unlock the driver's or passenger door with the key and open it with the door handle ?

Hi Jason,
I feel your pain. I've had a similar problem with my car seat belt getting caught in the latch mechanism keeping me from getting into my car. This has happened to me several times.
This may or may not work on you passenger car door. But I would definitely give it a try. I would get my adrenalin pumping and give it one heck of a yank. And then try lifting and yanking at the same time. If you do have to resort to the window breaking thing, find the smallest possible panel of glass to break.
The thing about yanking is, don't give up before the yank that opens it.
Best Regards,
Mark

I have a '93 Buick Regal Custom. Last year I was unable to open the passengers door from the outside, I can open from the inside but not outside. I lived with it until now. The drivers door is doing the...


I have this problem every year with my car, 1993 buick regal custom, 3.8. What happens is it gets cold, warms up a bit, and ice or snow melts and gets in the door, then it gets cold again and it freezes. I go to unlock and open the door from the outside and this problem arises.

There is a vertical rod on the left side of the drivers side, right side of the passenger side, that gets bent, from trying to open the door when that mechanism is frozen up. Just bend it back, a TINY bit and it will start working.

I got tired of taking my door apart every time it happened so i cut a little "door" in the cover thing, so i can get at that bar.

I also tried coating it in grease and that seems to lessen the frequency.

R/F door trim will have to be removed. Most likely you will find linkage disconnected from the inside latch of the outside door handle. You might even find a broken piece of the door handle requiring replacement

93 buick adjusted door handle now won't open in or outside


let down the window, take a chain with a hook on it ,hook it on to the  handle and if your strong enough pull the chain hard and hold it from the inside and once again if your strong enough turn around and give it a bruce lee with boots on. be careful to put a few towels between the chain and the finish you don't want to wear the solution afterward.
