SOURCE: Back (tailgate) door will not unlock and open

I bought a used 04 and when I took delivery I couldn't open the tailgate.

The non-Ford dealer was clueless when it came to helping me so I looked at it myself.

There is a small plastic access cover right above the mechanism on the inside of the hatch. It is about 1.5" by 1.5" square. Pop it off and drown the lock with WD40 to see if you can free it iu.

I finally got mine to open and then removed the inner panel to partially reveal the mechanism. It looked like it was brought up from the Titanic. It was completely rusted.

Seems that this model has a problem with water getting into the lock as it pools in the area where the catch is.

$167.00 later, tax in, and the problem is fixed as long as you continue to spary the h_ _ _ out of it with WD40

SOURCE: passenger door wont open

Gonna have to try to remove door panel and access the rod that runs from interior handle to lock mechanism, or try to unlock door from outside with a slimjim tool.

SOURCE: my key wont unlock the trunk anymore but the remote opener does.

There is a cable that runs from the key cylinder to the latch mechanism. There are clips that hold the cable housing in place, and if one of those comes loose then turning the key just moves the housing without releasing the latch. Check the clip closest to the latch. To get the trunk open drop the back seat, crawl in, and pull on the cable.

It is also possible that the cable is broken or damaged and needs to be replaced -- I assume you will then need to replace the enrite assembly.

2007 chevy cobalt door wont open. I tried the key and it seems like its working


You will need to pull the door card/panel off and check that the lock release rod from the lock cylinder to the door latch is attached.

I have a 2005 Nissan Almera with intermittent remote door locking issues. When the weather is very warm the car wont unlock but will lock.


It seems a bad actuator of the driver's side. May be alignment and re-adjustment of lock mechanism is required. Lubrication the locking mechanism linkage behind door panels is required. Spray WD-40 also the mechanism or spray with lithium grease to fix the problem.

I bought a 95 geo prizm and the back doors wouldnt open i finally got the passenger back door open when now i got the handles to work but the door wont seem to latch how can i fix this?


The doorlock has the ability not to unlock all the way after being locked. Take the door panel loose and you can access the locking mechanism. Push the mechanism all the way forward. This should solve the problem

My liftgate wont open all the time sometimes it works but the majority of the time it wont open. Its not unlocking with remote or unlock button inside the car.


Hi
Most likley the lock is sticking, once you get it open get some grease spray or WD40 spray inside the lock mechanism while using the remote to lock and unlock. do this many times as you are spraying the WD40 make sure you really get into the mechanism, you should get a small straw with the WD40 attach this and get inside the lock as much as possible. this is very common and often occurs wheen the weather goes from hot to cold or vice versa.

Also spray the lock hook part, this is the part the mechanism attachs to once shut. if this does not fix the problem the lock hook, may need to be adjusted, they often have 2 screws or bolts you simply half loosen them and re - align them. If you need more info on this please let me know
Regards

Hi, my central locking wont unlock the boot (renault clio 2002).


Its sounds like a sticky boot lock it wont be the remote, open the boot with the key and spray all around the lock and lock mechanism with WD-40 then lock and unlock keep repeating unlock, lock using both the key and remote it should free off.

Be sure to use plenty of WD-40 on the underside of the boot lid into the mechanism dont be shy with it.

Hope this helps.

2005 Cadillac STS door problem... Front driver door wont open from outside, seems as if the electronic system isnt responding to release latch when handle is pulled? Anyone have similar problem? All other...


There is NOT a mechanical connection to the outside door handles on the front doors. There is an electronic "door popping solenoid" This is a electronic problem. I think there was a recall on this.
