SOURCE: the latch/lock on back door mitsubishi montero

Deterime if the key rotates to the left and right first-if it does not than it's a tumbler issue-however if it does rotate-its a linkage in the panel either diconnected or blocked-not easy but from inside see if anything is around or on the locking bar-

Does the sun roof do anything whebn you press the button. if not, check your fuses and the sun roof switch. If fuses are good you want to check to see if the sun roof motor is getting power. If it is getting power it could be the motor itself. If it tries to move but can't then you have a mechanical problem. it might be binding so try giving it an assist by pushing on it when pressing the switch.

SOURCE: Can't open tailgait on 2002 Mitsubishi Montero.

This happened to me on my 2001. The door assembly rusts shut from condensation. I had to remove the plastic panels on the inside of the door and oil it with penetrating oil.

To get it to open, take off the license plate cover carefully starting at the bottom (6 plastic tabs hold it in place.) then use a screwdriver to push up on the latch inside the door until it opens (or resets so you can use the handle again.)

I had to add an additional spring to the assembly that I had laying around because it was too rusty and stopped working again even after oiling. You can also replace the internal handle if you can get one from the dealership.

I have a 99 diamante & my back passanger door will not stay closed is this door lock operaci?n by magnetic field to actuator


The lock actuator is a soliniod but sounds like your door latch is stuck or rusted on the inside you can try some wd40 inside the latch might help. also check that the child safety switch in the door is not in a middle position it's located on the door latch.

Sounds like the locking mechanism is worn out and needs to be replaced any mechanic in you're local area should replace it rather cheaply.

Cant close car door


Sometimes you have to take and push in on the button on the handle while you take your finger and pull down on the inside of the slot(door latch) that slides over the strike pin on the body of vehicle. It gets in the close position and won't go over the strike pin. Usually, you will hear a metal like sound when this is going on as you attempt to close it. Once you fix the problem it will be easy to solve if it ever happens again...children aren't the only ones that causes this to happen!

Closeing my back drivers side door


If the door itself will not stay closed then it is not the power locks but the latch that is malfunctioning, the locks only allow or disallow the latch from opening when you try to open the door.  Thoroughly lubricate the latch mechanism on the door with something like WD-40 and inspect it for damage, make sure the bolts that hold the latch within the door are tight and are aligned correctly.  After you lubricate it, close and open the door to work the lubricant in.  Also if you have child lock switches on the door, make sure the switch is fully off or on.  If all else fails then the handle/latch mechanism may need to be replaced.
