Hi Paul, I'm glad to help!

Handles that do not work as they should are usually due to a plastic retainer that holds the rod in place or a broken piece where the rod goes on the handle. Pull the panel off the door and take a look, move the handle and watch the rod to see if it moves and if its off on one end or the other. This is usually and easy fix and something you should be able to repair yourself. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Paul.

SOURCE: Front driver side door wont open from outside.

Sounds like its the bar that goes from the latch in the side of the door up to the handle. It will need to be reattached. If that dosent seem to be the problem you may want to replace handle and all bars in the door with parts from your local junkyard.

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.

Where do i find the vin numbers on a ford 1977 f 700 flatbed


At the front of the engine block. This should be easy to spot by popping open the hood, and looking at the front of the engine.At the front of the car frame, near the container that holds windshield washer fluid.At a rear wheel well. Try looking up, directly above the tire.Inside the driver-side doorjamb. Open the door, and look underneath where the side-view mirror would be located if the door was shut.At the driver-side doorpost. Open the door, and look near the spot where the door latches, not too far from the seatbelt return.Underneath the spare tire.

Why wont windows and lock work? could it be the front ecu?


Check inside of door where wiring comes thru for broken wires ,ECU doesn't control windows or door locks. You didn't state what model vehicle you own. But opening and closing door on drivers side causes broken wires on numerous vehicles over the years, most makes and models. Split boot and check all wires inside for breakage.

2006 buick lucerne back doors won't open


My friend just had this problem and he reached in and pulled the inside door handle back as far as it would go, and then let it go, allowing it to 'snap' back. For some reason this fixed it. We have no idea why. By doing this on one door, both rear door locks freed up and the rear locks are now working. Before, both rear locks were stuck and you could not open the doors from the inside nor the outside. Not sure why it works, but maybe it will work for you!

I have a 99 528i, driver side door won't open from inside or out.


to be honest i would need the car in front of me to diagnose correctly but from the sound of it the mechanism inside the door is worn,the lever that springs open the jaws has worn to the extent that it will not push the two contacts inside the lock open to allow the door pawl to swivel around releasing the door.Only way is too remove the door trim if you can and operate the mechanism with a big screwdriver to open the door then renew the mechanism
