Remove inner door latch and try operating the rod manually (vice grips). If locked, spray everything inside the door with WD-40 or the like and try operating the lock.

What would cause the rear door latch to work in unlock and disengage when locked?


Make sure the striker plate is adjusted right. That's the piece that the door latches on to on the door frame. It should have an adjustment. You may need a special wrench to loosen it and move it to a better position. I hope this helps.

1987 Oldsmobile Sierra door won't close...like


Sounds like the door latch is stuck or broken.
There is a gear in the side of the latch that turns when it hits the striker bolt on the door frame.
You can try taking a screwdriver and pushing on the gear to see if it will move. You can look at one of the other doors to see how it is supposed to work.

2006 buick lucerne back doors won't open


My friend just had this problem and he reached in and pulled the inside door handle back as far as it would go, and then let it go, allowing it to 'snap' back. For some reason this fixed it. We have no idea why. By doing this on one door, both rear door locks freed up and the rear locks are now working. Before, both rear locks were stuck and you could not open the doors from the inside nor the outside. Not sure why it works, but maybe it will work for you!

We live in a cold state (MN) and this year though it hasn't been incredibly cold our 2000 Kia Sephia constantly freezes shut. The power door lock on the driver side won't move from the inside or the...


part of the problem with being in such a cold place is even tho its so cold there is still moisture in the air. if you door wont close or open, you need to check the latch out and make sure its not just bent. as for not being able to unlock you door. the latching system is connected to the lock and handle. if the latch wont move don't use wd-40 that will make it worse. you need to pull open the door panel and get it greased with a grease gun. wd-40 will not keep the parts moving in that kind of cold. if latch wont reset
when you get it open, it wont close. just grease it up. oh it would help if you get water guard for your windows. protect you parts from freezing. take care.

Right passenger side door wont shut child lock safety stuck


child lock on should still let you open and close from the out side .
Make sure the door is unlocked and check to make sure the latch did not relatch it sef before shutting the door if it did take a screw driver and manualy open it by pulling the outer door handle and popping the latch back open with the screw driver. if this is not the case then most of theese problems can be fixed whith a can of WD-40 and just working the latch back and forth

Driver's side door power locks are stuck; door stuck shut.


sounds like the rods are disconnected the clips hold the rods in place the latching mechanism holds the handle in place as well did you replace the speakers or did a shop? if a shop did then they caused this if you did then you may have caused this either way untill you reattach the rods none of it will work. you will have to manually open the door at the latch from inside teh door behind the panel.
