    Hey, Thanks but the door will not open at all so I cannot get to the door panel. I took the drivers side door panel off and have a pretty good idea how the door mechanism works. I was pulling up on thte door lock linkage and got the door lock to the full unlock position and the door will still not open. From what I can see all of the bars are in place. It seems like the acutator that the lock rod is attached at the bottom is not letting the door be in the unlcoked position at the very bottom where the electric door lock part is. Would a slim jim work?? Again, thanks so much for your time.

Linkage on inside of door has come undone. take off inside door panel and you will find a small rod that goes to the lock mechanism where the door closes opposite the hinges. follow the handle to the door lock.the nylon bushing may have broken.they are cheap to purchase at auto part stores.

Passenger door lock doesn't open when I click the locking control on the door. I can use the key and I can pull the inside lever to open it.


check to see if you are getting power and ground to the passenger's side lock actuator (motor) when ever it locks or unlocks. if it does get both, change the actuator out.

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

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.
