Question about 2001 Lincoln LS

1 Answer

I pushed door Lever back to far now I can not shut the door.

I am having problems opening the door from the inside of the driver's side (2001 Lincoln LS) . I pushed the lever that's located on the side of the door panel inwards and it went to far back. I can't bring it back to its original position. I thought this was the problem and by moving back and forth it would help. It didn't, now my door won't shut because the door lever is pushed to far back from its original position in order to grab and post on the opposite side of the door frame in order to lock. I tried to force it back to it's postion with a large screw drive, but it won't budge. What do I do next?

Driver side door will not shut, problem with locking mechanism. How can I fix it?


Try using the inside door release...Pull the lever as if to open...this should re-align the door latch catch to function if it is not broken...closing after this re-alignment could fix your problem...Hope this helps.

94 chevy lumina apv door will not open most of the time


since it is the drivers front door it could be the outside door handle , the rod that goes from the handle to the lock asbly or the lock asbly its self take the door trim panel off and then loos inside the door and latch the door with the door open. open the door with the outside door handle and watch the rod and the lever that the rod is pushing down the lever might not be pushing the lever down far enough to release the lock. If the lock does not open try pushing down on the lever and see if the lock releases if it does ck the outside door handle for cracks along the hinges of the handle I have found that most of the time that it is the outside door handle cracked and the rod is not moving the lever far enough to release the lock.

Drivers door won't open using key, handle or push button. Passenger door window won't go up using drivers or passenger door button


there is a broken spring inside the latch assembally. i dont think it can be replaced but if you remove the door panek from inside you can reach the latch assabally and find the lever that the spring was operating. when you pull up on the lever the door lock will work.. attach a new spring to the lever and to the inside of the bolt that attaches the exterior door handle and you will be back in buisness. had the same problem with my wifes sport trac and fixed around two years ago and sill works fine

I have also broke off my 2001 Nissan Quest sliding door handle on the driver side. Also the sliding door cannot be opened from interior... Any help is appreciated... Thanks


the child lock rod may have been extended...
open the driver side door, and with a skinny finger, push that child lock rod back in towards the rear of the sliding door
use the passenger side as reference
once you pushed it in, you can now open it from the inside handle

My front passenger door does not open neither from the inside or the outside. it looks like the lock is stuck in the locking position and won't open from the drivers side push button or the passenger's...


hi deleon,

on your door, if you remove the panel from the inside, you should see a lever connected to the handle that is supposed to disengaged the door hinge opening the door.

your may have this part broken due to corrosion, or there is a possibility that the lock did not disengage leaving the lever connect to the door handle not disengaging the door hinge.

have this checked with a local mechanic or consult the service manual for DIY.

if you have other questions, just lemme know.

regards,

voodoo

Cannot open door from inside on front driverside


29 cent part my fix your problem. There is a nipple on the interior door lock lever that fits into a slot on the door handle lever. Look at passenger side to compare. The nipple is covered with a plastic spacer that may come off. The spacer keeps the lock nipple snug in the handle lever slot; pull the handle lever, it engages the lock lever, opening door. I bought a .29 cent aluminum spacer (#8x1/4 x 1/4) from Orchard hardware. Take needle nose pliers and slip the spacer on, then super glue. Unfortunately if lock lever (where riveted) is badly worn, then it may pivot upward instead of perpendicular to the door, thus defeating new spacer. But you may now be able to open door by pulling handle lever and lock lever at the same time. If you need to replace door handle, others on this site have suggested that you not replace metal frame that door handle is mounted on, but drill out rivets that hold door handle mount.

Driver side door lock stuck


You will need to use a Pair of Vice Grips on the Lever While Opening the Door with the Handle at the Same time. It should Pop Right Back into Place.

There is a child lock on it. Open the door and look on the edge of the door, where it mates to the body when the door closes. There's a lever there that is labeled as the child lock. It'll show her which way to switch the lever to allow the door to be opened from inside the car.
