2000 Echo with a broken manual door lock. Can't open door to fix

2000 Echo with a broken manual door lock. The door is closed and locked. I can't take the door panel off without opening the door.
The key doesn't unlock the door either.

How can I even start to fix this?

When you try to unlock it.... Do you here it making any sound?

I haven't even been in a Echo, So I can't really know how its setup lol but, i can try and help. :)

When you try to unlock it from the inside of the car do you here any sounds? Does it turn Really easy? Maybe the rod unhooked from the lock,

Have you tried a coat hanger? To try and jigge it open ,

You can remove the seat. :) Might be alittle hard but, it will work so you can take the pannle off, If you take this step BE sure to Disconnected you're Battery.

I locked the door latch maualy at the door of 2000 ford explorer how do release it


Look into the lock opening on the door frame for a part you can reach with a flat-blade screwdriver.
These can normally be opened if prying on the lock mechanism.

If you want to risk another door, watch the mechanism move when locking it manually.
You should then be able to reset both.

It depends on the actual problem. A body shop may be able to use a tool to go down thru the window sill to unlock the latch. If the latch is damaged, you may have to cut into the door to remove it.

My one door lock button is stuck down and others simply don't wor


You may need to remove your door panels (screws are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door) and then peel back the weather film on each door to see what could be causing the issues.. rusted wires, loose connection, broken linkages, seized linkages. I'm not sure what to do with your car since each door seems to be having a different issue, but I would check the locking mechanisms..

My door handle wont open my door on the drivers side. I have to roll down my window to open the door from the outside latch. Is it repairable, or do I have to replace any parts?


I have shaved door handles on a 2000 chevy silverado and the drivers side door just recently stopped opening it seems like its completely locked out and the door is closed so i cannot get to the bolts of the latch assembly when i hit the unlock button it unlocks half way and when you go to open the door it relocks itself even if you manually try to unlock the door and hold the lock forward it still wont open

Door will not slide automatically; emits loud beeping noise


Something similar to that was happening with our Odyssey...the beeping when you are driving whether it's ongoing or intermittent is the "safety alarm" letting you know the door is not closed. The power lock is not engaging. What I do when I get the beeping while driving is hit the Door Close button. It causes the door to attempt to engage again. To fix it...we first cleaned out the space below the side running board (kids were hiding crayons and things in there), then looked for any obstructions along the top and bottom tracks. I sprayed a lubricant along the tracks (I'd suggest the dry lube kind...I used WD40 the 1st time and had streaks of it dripping down after driving), use a lube that has a long straw to spray in small places...and spray up into the track that runs the length of the middle of the car. Manually open and shut it a few times to get the tracks lubed, then try it out.
If you press the open OR close button by remote or in the car and get nothing...no movement/no noises/no beeping...then it could be the electrical circuit itself, the signal itself may be impeded...or the motor shot. Have you tried any of these suggestions before?

2000 Toyota Echo Coolant System Air Locked


check your heater tap in the engine bay ...they usually ran off a vacuum hose.
If the system was not bled properly..ie by filling the radiator WHILE the bleed screw is open you will get an airlock.
the bleed screw is usually on or near the thermostat housing.
The water level must be higher than the top on the engine (I use a piece of PVC pipe in the radiator filler to do this.)

Also make sure the thermostat is not stuck in the closed position.

2000 nissan pathfinder back doors will not open


Are the doors manual or auto? Are your door lock actuators engaging when you hit the open/close button? Did you check all your fuses to make sure there all good? If every thing is checking good, and the door wont open from inside or outside, then your problem is : Inside your door are a series of rods, one goes from your inner door handle straight to the door lock assembly (it is dislocated from opening the door roughly) and one goes from the actuator to the door lock assembly which I believe also is dislocated, only way to fix this problem is to weasel your way through the edge of the door panel with a very long screwdriver (16-20") and a light and try to trigger the mechanism directly on the lock to open. This is alittle tricky and might require a trained technician to perform because with the door closed your panel might not come off which will raise the risk of destroying your door panel, in the long run paying a little money could save you a lot more if you break that panel!

Passenger door locked shut


You will have to remove the door panel with the door closed, the linkage to the lock cylinder is most likely broken or come off, with the door panel off you can manually open door and repair problem, the parts are cheap, the labor isn't.
