Question about 1996 Chevrolet Beretta

1 Answer

I have a '96 Beretta. The door handles are both messed up. The passenger-side door opens only from the inside. Now, the electronic-locking system on the driver's side is engaged, so I can't open the driver door from the outside OR the inside. I can't get to the fuse box to pull that fuse. Disconnecting the battery didn't disengage the electronic lock, either. And neither of the electronic-lock switches on the doors are working. Please help!

    Never mind. Mechanic said it isn't the electronic locks. And the car isn't worth fixing, so I don't really need to get into it that badly. :)

SOURCE: Can a regular person replace the driver side door

Yes you can do this yourself BUT make sure you get the plastic clips to the lock rods before you order. That is what is probably wrong with the door handle.

SOURCE: diver side door will not open with door handle (outsidedoor )

There is a small clip that holds the outside door handle arm (inside the door) to the latching assembly, so the door panel has to be removed to reattach it. Sometimes the little clip is still attached to the handle arm, sometimes they are in the bottom of the door & sometimes you can't find them at all... Rick

SOURCE: door locks and power window

Just did this procedure I got from coloradofans.com forums:

"any type of power/voltage change seems to trigger this issue

The most common symptom is power locks fail and only the driver window quits, however that is on the extended cab.

Steps to fix and it works every time.

take door panel off driver's door
Disconnect the wiring attached to window and power lock control unit
disconnect battery cables
connect the negative to the positive cable(((NO BATTERY CONNECTED)))
This will act to short residual voltage in the system

5 minutes later
place the key in the ignition and turn to the run position
connect the wiring to the window/lock controller
connect the negative cable to the battery
then the positive
open drivers side door
turn key to the off position((do not remove yet)) you should get a series of dings through speakers telling you the key is still in the ignition
once it begins dinging pull the key out and you should hear the door lock solenoids trigger and the windows should work." - Coloradofans.com forums

Passenger door can be opened from inside but not from outside...how too fix???


Remove the door lining and look inside by the lock. There is a linkage that has come adrift. To remove the door lining, remove handles, escutcheons, and arm rests. Using a wide blade screw driver gently pop the plastic rivets that hold the lining to the door.

Vw golf mk4 my rear passenger door willnot open with central locking key system. i can't even open it from the inside, pull the door handle and the lock pin rises but door won't open. i believ


This worked for me on 2008 Mk5 Golf, after the rear passenger door would not open fro outside or inside.

Hold the inside door latch open and keep it extended, then with the key fob open and close the door locks (still holding the inside latch open). Keep locking and unlocking the door, then it made a kluck and it released.

1995 Beretta: The passenger side door handle broke while opening...


it is an easy fix! there are 4 screws needing to come off the door to gain access to the interior. once in you will need to release a clip and also remove a bar from either an orange or black clip....once these are removed, you put in the new door handle, attach the clips back on, attach the screws and you are ready to go!

Door not locked but handle broke off, car is


You could always break a window! You could try and wedge one of the windows open enough to stick a coat hanger or something in to try and unlock the passenger side. Good luck

How can I fix the door handle on the inside of 1999 Toyota Coroll


It's probably broken, or unhooked. Just take your inner door panel off, and you'll soon figure out what's happening. Sometimes the rods get bent, or they come off the clip, or just need adjusting. And sometimes the handle itself is broken, but you can do it!

Driver's door lock will not open by key or electronic fob


I was able to determine if you move the inside door handle toward the front of the car, then you could remove the door panel. However, it takes a little force to pot out the plastic clips, but if you work around the outside by appling pressure with a thin tool, such as a putty knife it will pot out.

My problem was a small yellow plastic part that connects the outside and inside door handle rods was broken.

So I plan to replace the part and see if that fixes the provlem. If so I can save over $340 dealer repair costs.
