Nissan Xterra doors lock by themselves and the key won't unlock

My Xterra locks itself and I have a very hard time unlocking the door. MY key doesn't work only the remote access and I only have one of those that is working. What is going on and how can I fix it?

Try spraying penetrating lubricant or graphite into it, wiggle and try. Spray inside and press the button and spray between the button and the housing. If this dosen't work you can try looking into the seat belt with a flash light and see if you can see anything moving compare with a belt that works properly. If not successful you will have to replace the seat belt assembly as they cannot be taken apart as they are a safety item and are replaced as an assembly.

Most likely you've got a timed lock programed into your menu parameters. You will have to go to your main vehicle instrumental menu and clear that option. This may have been inadvertantly done by one of the other operators of the vehicle.

Nissan xterra door lock

sounds like an intermittent short in the wiring, a good place to start looking is where the loom goes through the door by the hinges, this is a place where the get a lot of wear, start with the drivers door and remove the door panel and check for any obvious chaffs in the wiring, (maybe give it a little wiggle).

could be the key tumbler needs a shot of lubricant. i recommend shooting wd-40 into the lock and cycling it. if the action improves but no unlocking, its the linkage attached to the tumbler itself. its easy to repair. remove the door panel. then CAREFULLY remove dust plastic and lay it in the floor so the black adhesive dont stick together. you should see the rods inside the door easily to understand their operation.

Door locks are powered through a circuit breaker (location not indicated) which applies 12V to the door lock timer. Insertion of the key causes the door lock actuator to unlock the door ...unless the timer prevents it. It is doubtful that all the doors could have failed lock components
