Sounds like you have the child locks on :)
Look for a small lever on the side of each door under/by the door latch. it probably shows a padlock open/closed. try moving it !

    should have added that. the hild lock mech. can sometimes jam if forced when in use - this will then bend the internal latch and will only open from one direction.

How do i remove the inside rear door panel on a 2008 infiniti fx-35


If it opens from the outside, check on the door itself near the latch assembly for a little black lever that moves back and forth...that is the child safety rear door lock and when engaged, wont allow the door to open from the inside...setting the lever to free position should allow door to open (pg 3-5 of owners manual)

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!

Describe your my Mitsubishi endeavor 2004 back door doesn't open Problem


Does this not open from inside or outside or both.
If it opens from the inside and not the outside look at the door opening near the latch. Look for the small lever "child-lock" just move the lever in the oposite direction.
If the door doesn't open from inside or outside I would ask has anyone try to unlock the car using a "slim-jim" if so they may have caused the lock rod to come off the latch on the inside. You'll need to remove the door trim panel and see the the rod has come off. With any luck it will just pop back on if the nothing is broken.

1994 Ford Explorer, both back doors wont open. I think the child locks are locked on, but I can't open them from the outside either, I have the door skin off of one of them. Is there a pin or latch I can...


if you can open the door from the outside of the truck when you look at the backside of the door you should see a little opening for the child safety locks one way locks the door so it cant be opened from the inside the way other way unlocks the safety latch the door should be able to be opened from the inside and outside of the truck

Door handle


the inside handle and otside both work the release seperate.
what you need to do is take the door panel off the inside by a couple screws (usually in the arm rest) and several plastic clips
around the perimiter which will pull out when you pry out on the panel. You can do this carefully with a screw driver but the proper
fork tool from parts store will be easier. look inside door at latch
and see if your piece is broke or possibly the rod may have just come out and need to be put back in place. If your handle piece is broke it is easy to replace once your inside the door.
