The linkage have fallen off from the door handle..Take off the door panel, and you will see a rod hanging off to the side, just put it back where it goes, and you will be ok..

How do you open a car door if the door is closed and the door handel doesn't work ?


Try getting in from the other side and then opening the trouble door. This sometimes happens when the door wasn't closed properly, or the lock was activated with the handle pulled. It happens on both of my cars, one a Honda and the other an Oldsmobile.

2009 ford fusion left ft door wont open from inside power lock works must roll down window to open with outside handle


Either the linkage connected to the handle has come off, or the piece on the handle inside has broken. You will need to remove the panel from the door and repair or replace the handle.

DRIVER OUTSIDE DOOR HANDLE WILL NOT OPEN DOOR. FROZE UP IN ICE STORM AND APPEARED TO BREAK WHEN TRIED TO OPEN DOOR. INSIDE HANDLE STILL WORKS TO OPEN THE DOOR. IS DIY REPAIR FEASIBLE? HOW MUCH WOULD IT...


DIY repair is possible. you must remove door panel inside and have window up to access the handle linkage from inside. The handle that you pull up on from outside, and the housing that surrounds it are usually a one-piece make. This work is tight and frustrating, take your time, look at how it fits together before you take it apart. Take pictures, make a drawing. I did this job on my celica and it was tough, but I took my time and got it done right. I can't tell you how much a shop would charge to fix it. smaller hands would have made things easier. . .lol. Good luck

Driver side doors do not open from outside, inside handles operate appropriately. outside handles were pulled with force after recent ice storm. I am guessing a linkage in the door has been broken or...


The repair will require removal of the door panel and adjustment/replacement of the rod that connects the outside handle to the lock mechanism, or replacement of the handle itself.

The outside door handles do not open the door on front doors


You probably have a linkage rod disconnected. Don't stress out! Remove clips with flat screwdriver, remove other hold down hardware & expose the area in question. Check for repairs needed. You may have to disconnect wiring connections to get panel out of the road. Good luck!

Broken passenger door handle


Same problem. I have a 2000 Suzuki Esteem GL. A year ago the driver's door handle broke. Heard a sound and then it was loose. Could not open it from outside. Had to open front passenger door, open the driver's door from inside and then go out again to enter from the driver's door. FRUSTRATING. My mechanic had to take the door apart to fix it. Just a week ago, my front passenger door died on me. Can't open it from outside nor inside. The door won't open. This is such a stupid problem that costs lots to repair. Never will buy a Suzuki again. Had too many problems with it (had to fix gas tank, doors that won't open, front axle...).

Door lock


When the actuator moves the latch up, it connects the outside door handle to the opening mechanism. When the latch is down, the outside door handle is disconnected from the mechanism so that it cannot be opened. So in this case your latch needs to be replaced, the latch or one of its parts is malfunctioning. the outside handle is never beening disconnected from the latch. remove the door panel visually inspect for damage, and take the proper repair
