Your door is what is known as 'dead locked'. There is a small servo motor which controls each door lock. When these motors go they lock up and make it impossible to open the door.The only door that wont open and lock doesnt work. - moz-screenshot.jpg Here is the procedure. This is for a rear door but the process is virtually the same for a front door.7d605a5.jpg

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.

Opening the drivers door doesnt automatically open the passangers door


Some vehicle locking systems allow a single button press to unlock the driver's side door and require a second button press to unlock the passenger side door. Likewise, use of the key to unlock the driver's side door does not automatically unlock the passenger side.

Lock ALL DOORS, Disconnect the Battery... Wait 2-3 minutes and connect the battery and it should reset itself. Make sure all doors are LOCKED...

AND that you have a KEY to open the door in case it does not work.

All my remotes won't unlock passenger doors, why?


this is a problem that can appear after your car battery died, cause the car didn't reset propely, so taking the battery out and putting it back in or letting your car die again would do the trick. I tried a lot of reprogramming procedured for my remote key, none of them worked, what did the trick though was simply unlocking the doors via the all door unlock button on the passenger side door, so simple.

One key doesnt work, has a new battery. Passenger door never locks.


it's posssible that the key will need a recode - even though it has a new battery. I had the same with an Audi. Took it to a friendly dealer who gave it the code and away I went !
