The problem is probably one of the lock rods inside of the door have fallen off. The lock still works but is unattached to the latch. They make the lock rod ends and sell them in the HELP section of most parts retailers. You will need to get someone to take the door panel off and repair the rod with a new end.

SOURCE: 1997 Jeep Wrangler Door Lock Gets Stuck in Cold Weather

Shopping list: Spray can of "White Lithium grease" and a spray can of WD-40 or similar penetrating lubricant, and spray the door latch assy, inside out, with WD-40 first. Even if you have to put window down & aim spray nozzle from top at area of latch, and soak it. Stick the nozzle inside the key slot also, and give it a few squirts. After you let it sit for a minute or 2 start working the lock on door, lock ,unlock, lock, unlock, until you feel it getting easier, now do same with key, until it starts to loosen up. Once you get it working freely, give it a few minutes, and do same with "white lithium grease". That will hopefully protect it from seizing (rusting) up again. Every once in a while when you think of it, give latch another shot of lithium grease. I usually try to do mine before & after winter, or whenever I start to feel it getting a little stiff again. Worst thing is the glass you have to clean if you aim spray too much toward glass, but small price to pay for not having to pull door panel off. If your door panel is easy to get off to allow for better access to back of latch assy, that would definately be better, but that's up to you & your experience with tools. Then you can be sure you got all the related linkages lubed where they need to be.

SOURCE: Yukon xl rear door won't unlock and there is no manual lock.

I have the exact problem described. I can't find any brass contacts on the door frame of any door. What door are you referring to? The liftgate is closed and locked, so I can't get to that door frame.

Does anyone have a solution to fix my driver door locking mechanism? When I press the key fob to unlock the car doors. All the car doors unlock except for the driver door. However if you open the driver...


General advise:The lock is not ok.The same wires that lock the doors,unlock it.Before removing the lock:ceck fuses,door wiring link (near the door hinges)U may have to figure out the link covered in removabile rubber(it has a lock pin and must pull down in some cars rotate)U can clean it by air gun and contact cleaner.Rare:The door unlock pin (small plastic knob that u unlock manually from inside)has the rod dirty/stucked/twisted,ceck it to move loose.Also spray chain lube and wd40 anywhere in the lock u gain acces (the key hole,from sides,from the pin lock).U can see if it is stucked if the unlock knob has the intention to rise (small moves) but does not pop.Cheers.

Cant open back doors how to open them


It is unusual for both rear doors to have this problem. If they are seldom used they can "stick" however. If you have power door locks and you can see the knob moving when the switch is pressed, chances are the doors are not locked when "unlock" is pressed.

Make sure they are unlocked by pulling up firmly on the lock knob by hand. If that fails, the doors may just be "stuck". Have you tried pulling the inside handle and pushing outward on the door from the inside while a helper lifts the outside handle and pulls outward.

If the doors have "child safety locks" you should only be able to open door from the outside when the safety lock is on.

I used csorb's instructions to reprogram a master key for my 2000 Lexus RX300. The ignition works perfectly, but the doors don't lock or unlock.


Hi!!
I believe your alarm is in the PASSIVE MODE, here is how it works.

PASSIVE MODE Setting (Arming) Anti-Theft System The system will automatically set 30 seconds after following methods are performed: Remove ignition key from ignition switch. Exit vehicle, and close all doors. After performing this, anti-theft indicator on left side of instrument panel will light continuously for about 30 seconds. After 30 seconds, anti-theft indicator will blink once per second. When system is set, doors cannot be locked or unlocked using door lock control switch.
CANCELING THE ALARM AND REPROGRAMING MAY SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM.
Canceling Anti-Theft System Setting (No Alarm) When system is set (armed), but alarm is not sounding, use one of following methods to cancel system setting:
  • Unlock left or right front door using key.
  • Unlock all doors using remote keyless entry system.
  • Insert key in ignition switch and turn to ON position (this is operative only when anti-theft system has not been triggered).
HERE IS HOW TO REPROGRAM THE ALARM IN CASE YOU NEED TO RESET IT.
PROGRAMMING
PASSIVE MODE NOTE:Initial mode is passive mode off. If there is a different signal in middle of programming, signal is invalid.
Programming Passive Mode Off
  • Remove ignition key from ignition key cylinder. Ensure all doors (including back door) and engine hood are closed and unlocked. Perform all of following methods within 30 seconds:
  • Lock or unlock any door with key or remote keyless entry system.
  • Open driver door.
  • Lock and unlock driver door lock knob 3 times.
  • After performing this, system should start force lock after 2 seconds. Perform all of following methods within 20 seconds:
  • Unlock driver door lock knob.
  • Close and open driver door 2 times.
  • Lock and unlock driver door lock knob.
  • After performing this, system should start force lock after 2 seconds. Passive mode should now be off.
Programming Passive Mode On
  • Remove ignition key from key cylinder. Ensure all doors, engine hood and luggage compartment door are closed and unlocked. Perform all of following methods within 30 seconds:
  • Lock or unlock any door with key or remote keyless entry system.
  • Open driver door.
  • Lock and unlock driver door lock knob 3 times.
  • After performing this, system should start force lock after 2 seconds. Perform all of following methods within 20 seconds:
  • Unlock driver door lock knob.
  • Close and open driver door 4 times.
  • Lock and unlock driver door lock knob.
  • After performing this, system should start force lock after 2 seconds. Passive mode should now be on.

My driver side door wont open how do i get it


sounds like the door lach is sticking
use some wd40 spray the lock and let it sit 4 a while
now since you have the inside skin off reach inside the door with 1 hand and try and open the door from the outside and see if the lock bar moves it usualy pushes down i think on a lach
if it goes up and down with no resistance make sure it is contacting the lach if yes make sure the door is unlocked
somtimes the lock is just stuck
after unlock open the door
push down on lock bar attached to lock then pull up on it if that fails to open door
after that all fails unlock door have friend pull handle and then give the door a good kick from inside just remember not the kick the glass
