Not good.

I have seen some cars where the door doesn't fully latch and they exhibit the identical symptoms. A not-fully-latched door is subject to uncommanded opening.

Short term fix -- don't lean against the door 'till this is fixed.

Longer term -- there is an adjustment for this, but rather than go through it here I think that the best bet is to take it to a dealer and get them to adjust it. A door that is not fastening well is nothing to play around with.

good luck

If this is a rear door, it sounds like the child safety lock switch engaged. There is a switch which prevents little kids from opening the door from the inside. It is located on the inside of the door near the latch when the door is open. Move it to the position opposite of 'engaged' and see if that fixes it.

SOURCE: 1998 GMC 2500 driver side door won't open from inside

standard problem; must replace the handle on the inside which entails drilling out rivets, etc. Easier to have a mechanic do it and the cost is around 150$... kind of worth it when you try to do it yourself. Let the problem go longer and the handle, itself, just lies there in a retarded fashion. Basically, the inside of the door latch has a piece of plastic that breaks off. Go figure. Build cheap ****; expect bad results.

This should have been made from a higher density material to offset this problem.

SOURCE: DOOR WON'T OPEN FROM INSIDE OF NISSAN ALTIMA 2002 ON DRIVER'S SIDE

There is a cable that attaches to the inside door latch release handle. The plastic that retains this cable is most likely broken. I have seen this before. If the retainer is not holding the cable sheath correctly, the entire cable moves when the handle is pulled and does not release the door latch.

Remove the door panel and inspect this cable. You will see 2 cables (one is for the door lock). If the plastic is broken, you will need a new interior handle assembly.

Hope this is helpful!!

SOURCE: Passenger side rear door only opens from inside.

It sounds like the linkage connecting the door handle to the latch has disengaged....you'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. You can then pull off the weather seal in order to see the inside of the door....

Door is loked on rear driver side want open


Won't open from outside? Won't open from inside? Equipped with power door locks? IF so, and won't open inside/outside, suspect stuck power door lock actuator. Sometimes working the lock/unlock button will make the door unlock. If not, the door will require disassembly from inside to determine what the failure may be. If the door needs disassembly while in the closed position, the paneling/clips may get damaged FYI

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.

I cant open my door from the inside of my 01 isuzu rodeo. Opens fine from outside but not the inside.


You need to remove the door trim to expose the inside mechanism that opens the door from the inside, look for a broken cable or a missing link to the inside handle, your problem will be there.

2006 buick lucerne back doors won't open


My friend just had this problem and he reached in and pulled the inside door handle back as far as it would go, and then let it go, allowing it to 'snap' back. For some reason this fixed it. We have no idea why. By doing this on one door, both rear door locks freed up and the rear locks are now working. Before, both rear locks were stuck and you could not open the doors from the inside nor the outside. Not sure why it works, but maybe it will work for you!

Outside handle on 1997 Toyota Avalon will not open door


Since you can get the door open, half the battle is already won. Yes, open the door, pull the interior door panel and take a look around. Watch inside with a flashlight (towards the rear of the door) as you roll the window down to see if you can see what it's snagged on.
