If they're power locks your door lock actuators might be faulty. If you push the button and it sounds like its opening or you manually unlock the doors and they still won't open, that would be my first guess. The motors might be getting weak and not have enough oomph to actually move. If it's manual locks, the locking mechanism could be messed up inside and is sitting in the lock position and won't move no matter what or the rod came off either way it will be Tricky getting the door panel off with the doors closed :)

Linkage has come off inside the door. You must remove the inner door panel and reattach or replace if broken.

SOURCE: 2004 Nissan Murano, back door can't open

I had a similar problem with a sienna and sometimes the cable ( inside the door) between the handle and the latch gets stuck in the sleeve. Kind of like the brake cable on a bike.
take the panel off by removing all the screws you can see on the panel and pull the panel off. There will be plastic pins holding it. Some of them may pop off and some will break off.
Drip oil down the sleeve so the cable slides freely. I used bike chain oil. Do not use WD40. This is **** and will not work for very long. Try the handles a few times before you put the panel back.

SOURCE: inside driver's door handle won't open door

I have a 99 Yukon. Had the same problem. I took the door panel off and discovered that the door handle has a spring attached that appeared to degrade. Bottom line is I changed the entire handle, not too expensive, and it now works fine.

97 mercury cougar xr7 how do i get door panel off if I cant open door?


It should still be possible, using a little bit of force. all screws and bolts holding on the panel are accessible, even with the door closed...but the panel maybe slightly pinched on the front and rear ends, and possibly on the bottom...but pulling hard on the handle once every bolt and screw is removed should force the panel loose

go to the passengers side and examine the latch... you could use a screwdriver and OPEN the latch on the drivers' door by pulling the door handle and prying the latch to the open possition... and try to close it ... repeate.

I cannot close driver side door on my 97 jeep grand cherokee, drivers side is in locked position, door will not close


Just a suggestion as I have seen this before--with door open pull up on outside handle and in door there is a curved latch that can be pulled open with a screwdriver---the hook is likely closed and with opening pressure on the outside handle you should be able to snap it open so the door will close properly---often happens if someone snaps it by accident closed (the hook latch).

96 vw passat door problems. driver side door wont


Call me 1-336-835-2180 10am-11pm 7 days a week eastern. Ask for R.C. and I'll be glad to tell you what all it takes. If you look at the other doors that will open you will notice a lever on the side of the latch it will release the latch. with the door open flip the latch and open it so you can see how it works. Also you can take the door panel partly loose. You will not get all the screws out. You can get enough out to pull the door panel out and reach into the door, pull the rod from the door handle and open it. Once the door is open there is a torque bit screw in the end of the door that holds the outside door handle on take it out, pull the door handle out and you will find a pin out or broke in the door handle. Take a handle on the door that works so you can see the difference. To do the back door on a 4 door you have to take out the interior panel that the top holder of the seat belt goes through to get to the screws in the end of the door panel just to get the interior door panel off to reach in. You can replace the rool pin with a screw, but be sure it's tight because it will back itself out and you'll have to do it all again. Been there and done that. Ha Ha. If you need more than this just call. I'm in North Carolina.

How do i install a door handle on a 1997 gmc sierra 1500


I've got a 97 GMC Yukon XL, I have a problem with the inside door handle on the driver side. To open the door I have to pull the handle and give it a shoulder for it to open. I think my problem is my door latch, I think it's giving out? Help

Back door will not open from the inside


The linkage has most likely come loose from the back side of the inside handle or the handle where the linkage attaches has broken. You must pull out the interior door handle to know for sure. Might be as simple as putting the metal rod (linkage) back into the handle and securing it.

Drivers door handle will not open door. how does the panel come off


You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. If needed, you can pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything inside the door
