2004 mazda 6 estate front driver side will not open with the key or fob


the 1st answer makes sense however since the fob isn't and the key isn't may possibly have a frozen (rusted) latch which may be freed up with some sort of penetrant oil, or just maybe the latch mechanism itself (lock actuator \) it bad ...the trim panel on the door will need to be rmoved to daignose

Ford explorer door lock


Pull panel off and have a look at the connection rod and latch assembly.
Rod should go from lock/handle to key hole, to latch assembly.

Could also end up being a bad lock solenoid. (the power lock itself)

Hope this helps

Passanger side door locking problem. when I insert the Key, it can turn forward to lock the door, but can not turn backward to unlock the door. And I tried the second key, does not work either.


Really sounds like one of 2 possible problems.
First, perhaps the door latch itself is broken, and that is unlikely, except that I am unfamiliar with that particular latch on that particular car.
Second, it sounds like, if you were to take the door panel off, you would find the latch is locked because one of the locking levers is holding the door latch locked.
There or 2 or 3 lever like things that affect the latch.
There is a lever from the outside door lock that goes to the door latch.
There is a lever from the inside locking handle that goes to the door latch, and yet may be one more.
If any of these are "stuck" or broken, they will "hold" the door latch in the locked position.
Be blessed.

Try spraying into the latch with a lubricant like WD-40. Also spray a little into the key hole itself. Don't be shy when you do the latch and move the nozzle around to reach different areas in the latch. Hope this helps.
