2000 GMC Sierra passenger door won't lock

Removed the passenger door panel OK. Lock rod does not move when either the key is used on the outside of the door, or when the door's lock switch is pressed, or when lock button on keyfob is pressed.  No actuator noise is heard except when unlock is pressed, but rod still doesn't move.  All rods are connected to the latch mechanism, all wire connectors are attached, all wires look good. No issues on the driver's door - everything functions OK.

It's usually caused by the hole in the door handle where the lock core goes into is worn allowing the lock cycl. to move inward when you put the key in and the key bottoms out on the door handle housing, replace exterior door handle will take care of the problem

The Actuator is not functioning anymore, check to see if there is a fuse for it first. If that is ok then remove the actuator and test it outside using some wire and your car battery to see if actually moves or doesent this will tell you if you need a replacement.

Why won't the door(s) unlock on my 1975 Chevelle Malibu Classic?


Does the passenger door unlock with the key? If it is OK, then the lock mechanism or the linkage has a problem. You will probably need to remove the interior door panel and examine it from that angle.

2000 cadillac deville driver side won't open with the key


1) Key turns but dose not unlock door. This means that the rod that goes to the back of the lock has came off. This also means that is the reason door is not unlocking with the remote as it pops the lock rod inside the door which pushes the lock open.
2) Key does not turn lock at all but works passengers side door. This means that the locks has been changed in the door, but that doesn't sound like the problem as you say the remote doesn't open the drivers side door so more than likely the rod has came off the back of the lock

The rear passenger door on 1993 lincoln contenental will not open neither from outside nor from inside but the pin goes up and down when operated by fob as well as unlock - lock button on the car


Ok this one is a tough one. If your handle on the outside does not work for some time, then the rod that attaches to the handle has most likely come loose. Your options are limited. I usually do not recommend the use of a slim jim. However in this case, a slim jim is an option. Inside your read door panel are three main rods. One rod moves the inside handle. The other rod moves the outside handle. The third rod is attached to the lock knob. Using the slim jim slide it into the door. Hook it onto one of the rods and pull up slightly. Try to see what is moving when you move the rod. If it is the inside handle or lock knob is moving, then find another rod that moves nothing. That will be the rod that should be attached to your outside handle. Lift up on that rod and it should open your door.
After you open the door, go ahead and take the time to fix your door, by removing the door panel and re-attaching the rod to the handle.

Let me know if you have any further questions.

  1. Disconnect the battery ground cable.
  2. Disable the Supplemental Restraint System.
  3. Remove the door trim panel. Refer to the illustration for the mounting screw and lock tab locations. After detaching the hardware, carefully pull it away, then lift it off the door just far enough to detach the electrical connections from it.
  4. Carefully detach the water shield from the door; this will be reused upon installation.
  5. Disconnect the inside door lock rod from the handle retainer clip.
  6. Detach the door lock rod from the retainer clip.
  7. Remove the rubber plug to access the outside handle rod. Disengage it from the clip and disconnect the lock cylinder rod.
  8. Detach the electrical connector and remove the lock from the vehicle.
  9. Installation is the reverse of removal. When installing the lock, tighten the screws to 89 inch lbs. (10 Nm).

Focus v reg ( Jan 2000 ) GHIA 2litre not hatchback. Trouble with central locking. all doors lock except passenger door. None of doors would lock until I disconnected Passenger door lock Cannot get lock...


Best way is to turn the key quarter turn to allow the rods to move over. The lugs tend to break when removing doors locks, so best order a couple before attempting to re-fit.

2000 GMC Sierra left rear door


Hello,

You may have 2 issues going on at the same time.
1. The child lock safety latch is up, preventing you from opening the door from the inside.
2. The inside clip to the rod that opens the door from the out side could of come off from closing the door to hard. Or the lock itself is getting stuck.

Options:
Roll the window all the way down, and look through the window crack with a flash light and see if any of the rods are just hanging and not connected.
If there are you can try using a slim jim with the cut out part facing up and try to catch the latch and pull up this could open the door.

Or you can try to take off the door panel from the inside, however this is very difficult and should be done by a professional becuse you don't want to break any thing or cause more dammage.

Once the door panel is off you can then pull the inside door release rod and open the door.

One more thing you can try: Pull the inside handle and the out side handle at the same time while having some on pull or push on the door, it just might be stuck and need a little force to open!
