Lock wont open!

My sliding electric door behind the passenger has locked and now will not unlock. I noticed it a few months ago that it only sometimes unlocks using the unlock button and i had to unlock it by hand. But now its jammed locked and it won't even open manualy. How can i get it to unlock and what do i do to fix it?

You have to remove the door panel and manually move the lock release rods inside of the door it could prove to be vary difficult. A body shop is the next step if this proves worthless.

If you cannot manually unlock the door, use a rubber hammer and firmly rap the door at the striker/lock area while manually sliding the lock/unlock switch to unlock,it may take a few tries but should unlock.DO NOT lock the door again until you have lubed the lock assembly and are happy with it's operation.If it's an electric lock fail to unlock/lock,with the door open use steel wool on the door post electrical door contact pads once in a while.

probably the FOB, just because other functions work does not mean that the lock/unlock will work. This is the most used function and the one that goes first.

No, not so strange. - Happens a LOT. Sometimes you can get them working again by cleaning the electrical contacts that are on the front edge of the door and their mating contacts on the "B" pillar area. If cleaning the contacts does not get them working again, then you most likely need to replace the door lock actuators inside the doors.

Open the trunk with the key, it will disable the alarm. You probably need a new door lock cylinder, which you should look into. They're easy to replace, but take a while to get, as they have to be coded for your key. You can also remove the door lock cylinder by loosening the t20 torx screw near the door handle until the lock cylinder slides out(DO NOT LOOSEN MORE THAN NECESSARY TO GET THE LOCK CYLINDER OUT), then use a flathead screwdriver through the hole to activate the lock.

Passenger door does not lock. It stays unlocked unless I manually push it in.


Most likely your doorlock acuator it the problem. When this lock started to exhibit the symptoms did you notice if it was moving up or down slower than usual or making any strange noises?

Doors wont all lock at the same time on my '95 saab 9000cs. i have to manually lock them individually. My dashboard lights flicker, sometimes the lights will stay on and sometimes i have to tap the switch...


When you use your remote or insert your key in the Drivers Front door all the door locks should work at the same time by the door lock motors electrically. If you have to manually unlock the door because it will not lock or unlock by the lock motor, you need a door lock motor. The drivers and passengers front doors can unlocked with the key manually only. The rear doors you have to pull up the latch. 
If NONE of doors unlock electrically with the remote or drivers door lock, intermittently or all the time, you will need a Central Locking Electronic Control Module. Pressing the remote button you will hear the "beep", but no door locks will fire at all. 
If you have a few odd door locks not working intermittently or not at all, you will need a new door lock motor for each door lock that malfunctions. You can hear if the door locks are working electrically. Yes, they are common problem. 
If you can hear the door lock motor working but the door still doesn't unlock you need to take the door panel off and lubricate the door latch assembly and work the lock, loosening it up. This is common as well.
Sometimes a bad door lock motor can blow the central locking fuse. You will notice it because it will take a second or two longer to lock and unlock compared to the others. If the door lock motors seem fine, install a the next step up in amperage fuse. (From 15 AMP to a 20 AMP)
