If you have shaved door handles, usually there is a manual opener somewhere close. Some people install them under the car so it can be popped with your foot or sometimes they're located in the wheel well.

SOURCE: volvo xc90 rear hatch door closed and won't open

Hold the hatch hard closed into its frame whilst pulling on the release handle. The mechanism on most cars consists a grab/release on the door and a simple metal hop at the bottom of the frame. Over time the hoop can become loose and move slightly inwards each time the door is shut. The door seal rubbers push back on the door surround putting a lot of tension against the grab/release mechanism preventing it from releasing. By pressing on the door and compressing the rubber surround you will take the pressure off the release mechanism and allow it to open when you pull on the handle. Once the door hatch is open, loosen the mounting bolts to the metal hoop and move it out about 10mm. Tighten the mounting bolts. Shut the door gently as a trial close and check for security of fit. If very slack, ease the hoop inwards a couple of millimetres. When happy, tighten the mounting bolts securely. draw around the hoop mount with indelible ink so if it moves in future you have early visual warning and can remount it easily

SOURCE: Door handle on my 2000

Either the linkage fell (broke) off, or the handle itself broke. Most handles are only plastic afterall. You can buy new outside handles for fairly cheap ($20 or so). Installing them can be easy or tough depending on the vehicle - soem give you room, some do not. But the job is very straight forward - start by taking off to inside panel. Locate the (should be two) bolts/nuts that hold the handle in place. Take off the lock (held in by retainer clip) and the linkage (metal rod with plastic retainer clip). like I said, pretty straight forward. (make sure the window is all the way up before you start).

2007 volvo v50 key stuck in ignition vehicle totally shut down


It is best to call a locksmith, unless you know how to take apart the ignition tumbler and put the assemly locks in the correct order. It sounds like the key tumbler hold in broke and all the tumblers are loose and causing the key to be stuck. If you want to hurry the job for the locksmith and save money, buy the key tumbler assembly for your vehicle for the locksmith to install. Otherwise he will have to make the trip to buy the assembly, which in turn costs you more money. Mechanic shops can replace key tumblers too but when it is stuck in the column, it takes a lot of effort to remove if they are unskilled.

Both doors on right hand side won't open anymore (manually or with remote control) How can I open them? Fuse is OK


You have 4 doors with 4 electronic modules. Front doors have "master" modules and rear doors have "slave" modules. Master modules are called DDM and PDM - Driver Door Module and Passenger Door Module. These modules communicate directly to the main computer via CAN bus.

But module in the rear door communicates only with the module in the front toor on the same side of the car via LIN bus.
So if the CAN communication channel is broken (wires may get broken where the doors are attached) then on that side of the car doors will not lock/unlock anymore, interior lights will not turn on, windows can't be opened and closed anymore from the remote control on that side of the vehicle. You may just repair the wires.

The other, expensive option is, that DDM or PDM electronic module is dead. Then take it to the shop for repair with the new module...

Try the following sequence:

Turn the headlight switch to the middle position "parking light".
Turn the ignition key in position II.
Pull the turn signal lever towards you and hold it while turning the headlight switch to position 0.
