Question about 2005 Nissan Armada

1 Answer

Right rear door does not open from outside

The right rear door does not open from outside. The problem is intermittent. Once the door handle from the inside is opened, then the door can open from the outside. It is as if the door is locked for the outside handle but unlocked for the inside handle, when everything should be unlocked.

There are some linkage pieces that go from the indoor handle to the release clasp that latches onto the car body. There are another set of linkage bars that will connect the outside handle to do the same thing. These rods will sometimes connect together and work on a common part to release the clasping device.
The other part of the door opening system incorporates the actual key lock and the pin inside the vehicle. These both will have more linkage parts that will catch on the release linkage and keep it from moving the clasping device. These linkage parts can become worn or even bend over time . They will then twist slightly and not stay in the groves or holes provided. This will cause them to slip past the moving parts and not push or pull on the clasping device.
The door will have to have the interior cover removed to observe the parts that move inside the door. They may need a new plastic bushing to keep the parts in line with each other or may need to be bent back into the proper shape if deformed. If the car was in an accident these parts may not have been fixed properly or the bushings may have simply fallen out of place due to slamming the doors.
This is usually a problem found on most older cars that have simply been worn or the bushings have broken in cold weather etc.
The hardest part of this repair is just getting the panel off without ruining it or yanking on the wires.
I would find a service manual that shows the removing of the interior and also details the door assembly before even thinking of starting on this.

SOURCE: my locked door won't open

I have a 2005 Xterra and the same thing started happening to me on an intermitent basis. The dealership eventually replaced the guts of the door release equipment under warrenty but that was after 3 trips to the dealership.
Now my rear hatch won't open. My theory is that after an total repaint (hail) in the summer of 2006 the body shop made something out of wack with these door mechanisms.

SOURCE: 1996 nissan altima power door lock (driver side

You may need to diconnect the power lock button on the driverside door by prying it out (with the window controls). Problem may be in the switch or a short in the wiring. If this is not it, it may be in the door switch on either the drivers or passengers door.

You will need to remove the inside door panel, what that takes I don't know, but it must come off to access the door latch, there you will likely find the latch release control rod has come off or the latch is defective.

Rear door on 06 jetta wont open


At a guess the outside handle has become detached from the linkage inside the door and you've got the child lock on as well.

Well to get the child lock off, you need a long fairly broad plastic strip, I've used the long side cut out of a plastic milk carton in the past.

Wind the window in the offending door down, then insert the plastic strip in the door gap underneath the handle, once in try the internal door handle, if it fails try again working your way down the door by widths of the plastic strip, trying the internal door handle as you go, with luck you'll have release the child lock by the 3-4th try.

Once open, its taking the inside door card off and re-attaching the linkage for the outside handle.

My rear door on the passenger side is stuck so I can't open it from the outside. but today when I had the door open to ***** the problem my little brother flipped the button and turned on the child lock....


It sounds like the plastic connecting bit that links the outside door lever to the rod, that operates the door mechanism, has broken or become disconnected. To check, you will need to remove the trim on the inside of the door, after removing any screws and the inside door lever. However now that the child safety lock has been set it could be very difficult to get the door open.
All I can suggest is that you look at the other rear door to locate the position of the safety tab and then try to disengage it by using a suitable thin blade or something on your bad door so that you can again use the inside lever.
Once you have the inside trim off and the plastic sheet, you will see an access hole for the door mechanism and the outside operating handle of the door. It should be attached to the actuating rod by the aforementioned plastic bit. If plastic bit appears OK try re-attaching it or replacing it if broken. If the part of the handle which attaches to the rod is broken, the handle will need replacing.

1997 Geo Metro rear door won't open!


I have the same car, same problem. I've still not been able to fix it, despite taking the inside panels off the rear doors, checking the rods were seated, applying WD-40 to the lock mechanisms, and manually working the mechanism. Child locks are not engaged, but I tried putting them on and off too. Just won't open.

The inside door handle does not open the door. I can open it from the outside but not the inside.


I just fell into the same situation. My interior driver's door handle just does nothing all of a sudden. I went on the Mazda Forum website and came away with at least a temporary fix.
The lock switch can be used to open the door from the inside by pushing it the opposite way it's pushed when locking the door. In other words, the rear portion of the lock switch needs to be depressed and the front portion needs to be pulled away from the door. It may be difficult to do with the trim piece around the lock still on. The trim piece can be removed by pulling the small plastic cap away from the base (it's on a plastic hinge) off and unscrewing the holding screw underneath it. Pull the handle away from the door and the trim piece will come right off.
I'm using that as a temporary solution now until I get a new/used door assembly.
Hope that helps.
