Is the rod from the out side door handle to the latch connected? I've had the plastic lock break at the handle. Remove the door panel and check.

2004 mazda 6 estate front driver side will not open with the key or fob


the 1st answer makes sense however since the fob isn't and the key isn't may possibly have a frozen (rusted) latch which may be freed up with some sort of penetrant oil, or just maybe the latch mechanism itself (lock actuator \) it bad ...the trim panel on the door will need to be rmoved to daignose

My Equinox tailgate seems to be locked and will not open


May have been packed too tight, or something shifted as door was closing and became lodged in either the locking mechanism or the side supporting latched to the left and right lower edges of the door. Try applying some pressure to the outside of the door while turning the key. If you are trying to use the Key fob to open, the stuck position will not allow lock to disengage at all. If that does not work, have someone crawl inside and push while someone outside turns the key.
Silly question but, I need to ask, what is the temp. outside? There is also the very real possibility that, the door seal itself has been frozen to the painted mating surface along the jamb of the door. You would need to park in above freezing temp (full sun will work sometimes) if this does work, get some silicone sprayed on a rag (fairly wet) and wipe down the painted mating surface where the seal meets the jamb. Good luck

Why will my drivers door not open,even though it locks and unlocks with key fob.


Sounds like the activator rod that goes from the door Handle to the latch is disconnected. You will have to get the door open to repair it and a good mechanic or tow truck driver can use a slim Jim kit to get the latch to release and then you can pull the door panel and find the problem.

2006 passat drivers side door locks wont open from outside when unlocked using fob


It sounds like you might have two door latches that are faulty.... But you can try disconnecting the battery for 10 minutes and reconnect to see if that solves it. Sometimes VW's need their memory reset, have seen weird problems happen and this fixes it a lot of the time.

I have a honda Accord SE and my doors wont unlock from my remote and all but drivers side will open from inside the car (i had to crawl through the trunk) ive never had this happen to me, can you help


I will admit that this is not a solution to your problem but may help until you get it fixed. Many people sometimes forget that the ignition key can unlock the doors from the outside manually. Worth a try rather than crawling in through the trunk.

Range Rover Passenger Door Will Not Open

Program a remote key for 03 A6


I have an A4 and did this to re-program my key:

1. used the key to start the car...then turned it off
2. put the key in the driver door (door closed)
3. pressed the lock button on the key fob once
4. turned the key to lock the door.

This is basically the steps in the owners manual, but the car must be started with the key first, and the key must be in the door lock before pressing the lock button.

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.
