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: Passenger side rear door only opens from inside.

It sounds like the linkage connecting the door handle to the latch has disengaged....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. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. You can then pull off the weather seal in order to see the inside of the door....

SOURCE: rear passenger side door will not open from

The child safety lock should stop the door from opening from the inside as that is it's purpose however the external door handle should open the door. It sounds as though the actuating rod has disconnected some how from the door latch mechanism. this often happens when a "slim Jim" or hanger has been used to open the door incorrectly. You will have to find a way to get the door open so this can be repaired. Your best bet is most likely to have a dealer do this as I can think of no way to access the door release parts without damaging the interior door panel with the door closed.

Hi my passenger door on citroen c4 has an itermitant fault on passenger door , most time it wont open from outside if opened with remote locking but opens everytime from outside if unlocked with key


Sound like the lock actuator is at fault if it only unlocks with key. Also check wiring in door hinge area for wire breakages. You will probably find its dealer only for the part.

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.

Opening the drivers door doesnt automatically open the passangers door


Some vehicle locking systems allow a single button press to unlock the driver's side door and require a second button press to unlock the passenger side door. Likewise, use of the key to unlock the driver's side door does not automatically unlock the passenger side.

By hook or by crook the door panel must be removed in order to access the internal mechanism even if it must be badly damaged and need replacing. It is usual to remove the seat to improve access.

Passenger door will not open


I can think of two possibilities:

1) The electronic lock is malfunctioning and forcing the door to lock. From the inside of the car, try forcing the lock to the 'unlocked' position. If you can do this with your had, but it 'snaps' back to 'locked' then it's an electrical problem. Possibly the lock solenoid itself, or the BCM.

2) If you cannot force the lock to the 'unlocked' position, then it's some sort of mechanical problem - maybe the lock is just jammed. Try spraying oil into the locking mechanism from the outside and working the lock until it's free. Otherwise, remove the interior door panel and diagnose the mechanical lock.
