If I remember correctly, that year Taurus still had the old style lock buttons by the window glass. You should be able to use a sharp object and dig into the plastic door lock by the window. Knife, box cutter, anything that will gouge the button enough to get a purchase to pull the lock up. Pull it up, open the door, then remove the door panel to find out what's wrong. Probably open circuit in the door wiring or broken clip for the rods.

Ya could find someone with a slim-jim who knows how to hook the rod to unlock the door. Ford dealer? Locksmith?

SOURCE: the inside door handle won't open door from inside outside door works fine it's on drivers side 2006 ford fusion selv6

It sounds like the connecting rod popped out of its plastic connector. Pull the door panel off and check both ends of the rod. It must be unhooked at one end or the other.

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.

Vw golf mk4 my rear passenger door willnot open with central locking key system. i can't even open it from the inside, pull the door handle and the lock pin rises but door won't open. i believ


This worked for me on 2008 Mk5 Golf, after the rear passenger door would not open fro outside or inside.

Hold the inside door latch open and keep it extended, then with the key fob open and close the door locks (still holding the inside latch open). Keep locking and unlocking the door, then it made a kluck and it released.

I need a diagram of the locking mechanism in my 2001 nissan sentra so that i can use a slim jim to unlock the passenger side door.


I don't have a diagram of the door but if you slip the slim Jim in over the top of the outside door handle it should catch on the latch bar. If you are doing this because the door won't open from the interior handle or the outside handle the problem most likely isn't the lock. The way that handle connects to the release it is held in place with a piece of plastic that breaks fairly easy. If that piece breaks the interior door handle won't activate the unlock function when pulled and you will have a heck of a time getting the door opened so you can get inside the panel to do the repair.

Power window open partially with inside or outside


inside the mechanical lock (The part that actualy holds the door shut when you close it) there is a switch that informs the control unit that the lock is either locked or unlocked.
These switches fail sometimes, when this happens the control unit is not aware that you have opened the door, and therefor will not wind the window down slightly.
The switch is integral with the lock unit, and they are not easy things to replace either.

I cannot open my passenger door from the outside even though it is unlocked. I lift the handle but nothing happens. I can only open the passenger door from the inside.


The outside door handle operation rod has either fallen off or the outside handle is broken, you will need to remove it to find out which one, you will have to remove the interior door panel to access it. Hope this helps, let me know

Range Rover Passenger Door Will Not Open


I have a 2002 land rover discovery and my passenger front door won't unlock with the interior lock button on the dash or with the key fob. The only way to unlock the door is to pull the handle on the inside of the door. Is the actuator bad?
