Easy one, I say that because I did the same thing. When putting the new one in I missed one little detail. There's a small metal rod that is very easy to miss if you don't look close. It connects the inner handle to the mechanical lock, you didn't connect it. That's why the power and the keys work and the handle doesn't. You just have to take the handle back off and find that tiny rod. Once you see it you'll know exactly what I mean. Secure it in place, re-assemble, done. Glad I could help. Grimm

Door handle repair for Ford fusion


The door handle will not allow unlocking from the inside. This is a common problem with the Ford Fusion 2007 to 2012 and other cars. A cheap piece of plastic breaks that connects the lock lever with the door handle. You can roll down the window and unlock from the outside or hold both levers together and pull open from the inside. This is a very simple repair. Go to any of many web sites for auto parts and buy a replacement. I bought a Dorman 81702 Ford/Lincoln/Mercury Interior Front Driver Side Replacement Door Handle. I popped off the lid that covers a hidden screw inside the recess of the door handle. You have to use a torque bit to unscrew the screw. I then unscrewed the torque screw holding the upper part of the door panel that is opposite the door hinge. The upper part of the door panel can be be carefully pulled away with moderate pressure allowing access to the door handle mechanism. One more bolt holds the door handle part in place. Pull out the broken door handle part, remove the locking cable and put in the new part. Reverse the process to finish up. The whole process took about 10 minutes.

Either the linkage connected to the handle has come off, or the piece on the handle inside has broken. You will need to remove the panel from the door and repair or replace the handle.

2006 Ford Fusion inside door handle stopped working


The plastic door handle is broken.
You will need to get a replacement door handle.
Go to http://www.flickr.com/photos/gtppilot/sets...57607539089979/
This should help. It is a set of photographs and instructions to do the job of replacing the handle.

Good luck.
