Driver side door jammed shut

I locked my keys in the car. I slim jimmed the driver and passenger door. Now, the driver door will not open from inside or out. its like i disconnected the mechanism inside the door. How can I remember the door panel with the driver door being stuck in the closed position? Is there a way to get it open without removing the door panel?

Not to my knowledge. The mechanism you talk about is the wiring inside the door if it has electric locks. The only way is to remove the top of the door panel to access the door latch mechanism then slide it away from the latch. If that don't work let me know

Cannot open drivers door of my 1996 honda crv automatic using key or from inside. having to climb over from passenger side to drive and get out again.


Sue we arn't talking keyless entrey here .
Then if the key works in the other locks it must be good not worn out .
Witch leaves the lock cylinder on the drivers door or the mechinizam that moves the rods inside of the door to lock and unlock it .
Dose the key feel like it fits ok and the lock turn normally .If so that leaves the mechinizam inside the door .
Its not the end of the world likely something popped off or a little plastic clip broke that holds the rod in place .
The door needs to be taken apart from the inside witch means it needs to be open to repair .Its like a caught 22 can't fix it unless its open but can't open it .
There are ways slim jim or the old coat hanger way if you can roll the window down think about it do a little reserach it can be opened with out distroying the door

Hi, I have a Holden Astra TS city 98 model car and the remote on the key will open all the doors except the drivers door, so to lock all doors I have to put the key in the drivers door or use the remote &...


A plastic clip that holds the lock linkage is probably broke or worn. You need to pull of the inner door panel to see whats going on inside. Use the remote and see whats happening. It could be bent rod in door from someone using a slim jim to unlock it when they locked the keys in it at some point. Bend the rod and try the remote again untill it works properly.

Locked out of my car! Keys (main & spare) won't unlock the doors.


i had same problem with a mitsubishi fto , tried the coat hanger thing got the passengers door unlocked but it still wouldnt open, rang the automobile association, he came along and did the same as i did to passengers door , to the drivers door and presto he was in,so maybe the drivers door has the master control, or ring a dealer for that make and model they might be able to put you on the right path.

Driver side door latch closed shut with door open. Will not open to engage and allow the door to safely close.


Place a large screwdriver in the Latch (on the end of the door), and while lifting your inside or outside door handle (make sure the door's unlocked), move the screwdriver out until the hook re-opens. If this doesn't work, it sounds like the rods and plastic retainers within the door have come loose, which will entail the removing of the door panel. Should it come to that, then in moving the door openers (both inside and out), you will see which rod fell out of what and just snap it into place. Sometimes this occurs when you need assistance with keys locked in car and a "slim-jim" is used to pop the lock...the slim-jim will knock the door linkages off. If this be the case, contact the Wrecker Service that unlocked your car. For future reference, a good Wrecker driver will always go through the front right passenger door for "lock-outs."

Good Luck,

Greetings - I have a 1992 Ford explorer, the driver side door is jammed shut. It will not open from outside or inside. I am thinking I must rip open the inside door to get to the lock! What do you...


2 options. Find a tow truck company and have them go through the window with a " slim jim" tool to open door, so as not to ruin it, or take apart the interior panel

Slim jim did not work in opening the veh.


take an old auto antenna or, a very stiff metal rod and, using a plastic blade (like a plaster knife) bend the glass on the driver's side door; at the top of the door; gently outward; place a rubber or, wood spacer (eraser, wedge etc) between the door frame and, the glass: you only need one inch space; use the rod to press /pull the button / lever on the passenger side

the metal rod came off the inside. You need to come in from top with a slim jim to open and then work on the door by taking panel off. Get a locksmith or call the local dealer and ask who is there SAAB roadside assistance. Also Cadillac dealers have a roadside service.
