Sounds like the actuator in the passenger door has packed up. It will need replacing,but is not a quick job because the door panel has to come off before gaining access to the door lock actuator.

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.

How do you unlock an Audi a4 that has a dead battery and the key will not open the door or trunk


1. First time spray an antifreeze product into the driver's door key hole in order to thawing it. Try again to unlock the door.
2. Flush some warm water upon the driver's door key hole in order to thawing it. Try again to unlock the door.
3. Spray also some WD-40 product into the door key hole in order to unlock the door. Try to slowly turn the key to open the door. Don't force the ignition key!
4. If no success until now, I suggest you another method: you will be able to open the hood if you pull off your splash guard and use a long long flat head screwdriver or something like that. You'll see the hood latch in front of the radiator with the cable attached to it at the top near the hood, put it on the drivers side edge of the bottom of the latch and pry to the passenger side, the lever moves from the drivers side to the passengers side, the cable basically pulls the top of it to achieve this. so your doing the same thing on the bottom with the screwdriver.

Release the latch from underneath by the lever that you have to pry towards the passenger side. Then open the hood, and charge or replace the battery.

I can't unlock my 2003 kia rio with the key, and when I unlock it from the inside it relocks itself before I can open the door


Hello,
Just had the same problem and know it is fixed.
You may have worked out that you can use the fob to unlock and then immediately lift the passenger handle to get access- not ideal.
In my case I couldn't turn the key in the drivers door either
1, Remove the 25 AMP fuse for door locking from fuse box under the bonnet. This disables central locking. The passenger door opens fine. The key however won't turn in drivers door.
2, Spray WD40 or other moisture repellent protective lubricant on key. Insert into drivers lock- gently turn back and forth. Half remove key so you can spray more WD40 into lock- a good blast will do. Keep gently turning until you can lock and unlock.
3, Replace 25 amp fuse
4, Hopefully job done- worked for me

Passenger door not opening with central locking


1st wind the glass down and turn the key in the driver door twice in clockwise direction to lock, at the sound of the second click try try opening the door thru the window (passenger) manually. you will need to pull the knob twice before it opens. you can get all the passenger doors open this way until you decide to change central lock system. To activate the remote; insert the key into driver door while pressing the lock or unlock button on the remote for at least five-ten seconds which should get it functioning normally again. hope this helps. it worked on mine.

you need to spend some time triing the best you can to get the top of the door panel open a bit to see what is broken inside, most likely a clip.The other thing to try is a slim jim to get the door open then repair the door lock.
