SOURCE: rear passenger door will not open

I bought my Cherokee new and until 06 I never had a problem with the doors. When 1 latch went all the others went shortly thereafter. You WILL HAVE to replace the latches. I've done all 4 doors and the rear latch. You can do it relatively easy but the latch NEEDS to be replaced. You may get it to work every now and then, but it will FAIL again, just replace it and you'll be happy.

SOURCE: 97 RAV4 door won't open. Or unlock

These can be a nightmare!
Try pushing / pulling all cables and rods available. And key operation if connected.
If there is a solenoid to operate it, remove the connector and use a meter to find the motor wires. Cautiously apply 12v from a handdrill battery - first one way - then the other to see if the drive motor will unlock it.

As a last resort - Drill a 1/4" hole in the lock body - and use that as a pilot hole for a 20mm holesaw - destroy the lock mechanism to gain entry - the lock was beyond repair anyway - so needed replacement - Just don't damage other components if possible.

there should be an extra latch in the trunk for your gas door, other wise it can be accessed there in the trunk with some tool and such..

SOURCE: gas cap door will not open when release latch is

You might try having a friend bump the gas cover with the heel of their hand while you **** briskly on the release. Have done this a couple of times and once opened, you can use a little lubricant on the exposed parts. Sometimes that is enough.

How I can manualy unlock rear door on 2008 dodge nitro?


I see you are ale to see the cables and rods how and when they operate. When you to open the latch from the outside and the inside. Are you able to see if they move the mechanism up or down as you try to open the door working the latch outside and the inside door handle. Sounds like your door latch broke internally, the only thing I was able to do was from the inside with somebody holding the outside latch up to open. Kick it hard in the area where the door latch is. Lay on the sit and kick it hard while the outside individual lifts the latch and pulls. It should pop open. Good luck.

Toyota rav4 back door latch problem


Well, it could be something as simple as the latch mechanism needs to be lubricated. Spray some lub spray, wd 40, etc into the mechanism and work the latch a bit. Maybe that will work. You nver know!

My Honda Accord latch is broken. I can not open the gas tank door and the trunk won't close. It has to be a problem in the latch because it controls both gas tank door and trunk door


emergency release should be in the trunk as for the closing of the trunk, you need to disconnect the cable at the trunk latch until you can get it fixed

Open glove box this morning and it will not close. I do not want to break it by forcing it.


i dont have a picture of this but the latch may be stuck in the closed position. using a small screw driver open the glove box and lift the latch that opens it while still pulling out on the handle take your screw driver and pop open the latch from the inside of the door this should free it up and allow you to close it again. hope this helps

How do you find the latch to open the gas tank to fill it?


The HHR does not have a latch release like many other cars. All you need to do is push the fill door in and it will "pop" out so you can open it completely. When you close the door, push it firmly and it will snap flush.

Passenger door lock jammed


Your door latch assembly may be compromised. It could be rusted, the electric solenoid (if it has one) may be seized. Or the rods from the key are bent. Are you using th key in this door regularly? If not, the tumblers in the lock may be seized. Spray some WD-40 in the lock where the key goes, and jam the key in & out repeatedly, and retry. Remove the door panel & spray the interior of the latch, also. Hope this works for you; or, you are going to need new latches.
