It appears you have a situation with electric door locks.When the locks are open,so will the doors.I'd check fuses first,if good,then the electric door locls need repositioned or replaced.

SOURCE: Front passenger door lock wont work, seat belt light on

Sounds like the plastic clip that connects the lock has broken however regardless of fault the inner door panel has to be removed to diagnose and repair.It could also be inner door lock assembly.

SOURCE: The windows on the front driver and front

what do you mean off track are they jammed in the door panel or do you mean they work once in a while if they are out of the channel you take your door panel off and remove the window and reinstall in the track make sure you lube the track because sometimes the window jams because the channel is to dry and causes the window to stick if you are saying the windows work once in a while the harness at the drivers side usaully breaks in the rubber garment so you have no choice to take panel off and try to remove the garment and chk your harness to repair cut wires if worst to worst you can cut the rubber garment with a exato knife be careful not to cut other wires and cause a greater problem then when you fix the wires you can tape up the old garment but i need more imfo

SOURCE: The front door handle lacks tension and the door

I just bought a 96 transport with that same problem on both front doors they would open from the inside but not the outside. They have a design flaw, basically when you pull the handle it pushes a piece that pivots and in turn pushes a linkage rod downward that actuates the door latch, well that pivot point is the weak spot, the pin that it hinges on is too small and will break, (I found the pivot piece and the linkage rod laying in the bottom of the door)
If you pull the door panel off their are 2 nuts holding the door handle on, take those off and the door handle will come off, the pivot pin is on then inside of the door handle, what I did was to drill a hole and put a small self tapping screw in to replace the pivot pin, and hold the pivot piece and linkage in place then put it all back through the door handle hole in the door, and set the linkage down in it's hole in the door latch assembly. The screw I used was not exactly the same size as the original pin was so the pivot piece had some play in it and did not quite push the down far enough to unlatch the door so I put two small nuts to act as washers on the bottom of the linkage rod so it would push down a little more, now it works like a charm, on the other door the linkage rod had just come out of it's hole in the door latch assembly, all I had to do was pull the inside door handle, which lowered the door latch piece and guided the rod back into its hole as I released the inside door handle and now it works too, took about an hour for both doors, a fairly easy fix, hope this helps.

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.

Doors not opening


I have a 2005 Kia Rio. The passenger door would not open (using inside or outside handles). Found out that one of the three bolts holding the door lock became loose just enough that the head of the screw rubbed against locking mechanism. Had to kick the door (from inside) open. It worked. Replaced screw and all is well.

Passenger door wont open


It wont open from the inside? The outside? or both?. Inside the door panel there is a linkage responsible for opening the doors. If they are not connected then it wont open.

There is NOT a mechanical connection to the outside door handles on the front doors. There is an electronic "door popping solenoid" This is a electronic problem. I think there was a recall on this.
