Hi
Can you still open the door from inside? if so then most likely the metal bar that connects the door lock to the mechanism has come off, you will have to remove the interior "door trim/ door card" so you can see on the inside of the door, sometimes it is just a small plastic gromit that cracks and fall's into the bottom of the inside of the door. these are about £4 each from renault and it's an easy job to do your self.

Is the key stiff in the lock? or is the lock just spinning? if it is stiff then most likely the lock is at fault if the lock just spins round and does not open the door then the fault is more likely the mechanism inside the door or the forementioned gromit.

If you need any help with the door trim let me know and i will talk you through it. it's fairly easy even for a novice.
Regards
Dan

    i have the same problem, my key doesnt just rotate easily iI have to twist with a bit of force sometimes more than other times. i noticed you divided the problem into two catagorys, the key just rotating or with stiffness. mine is stiff so what do you think will i have to replace the whole unit or is there something else? sometimes when i try to unlock it after locking it from inside and it just wont bite enough to push up the lock, or twist the lock. i can feel it trying then it slips and rotates. thats the best way i can explain it. The key starts the engine straight away btw

    I ended up having to replace the inner mechanism, getting someone to do this was nightmare as most mechanics didn't want to touch as it was to much hassle. In the end I found a guy, 20 euro n sorted.

How can I lock a renault megane 56 plate without the key card as it is not working


Locking/Unlocking the doors from the outside
This is done using the RENAULT Card; see the "RENAULT Card" information in Section 1.
In certain cases, the RENAULT card may not work:
- if the RENAULT card battery is weak, flat, etc.
- if equipment operating on the same frequency as the card (mobile phones, etc.) is used;
- vehicle located in a high electromagnetic radiation zone.
It is then possible:
- to use the key integrated into the card to unlock the front left-hand door;
- to lock each of the doors manually;
- to use the interior door locking/unlocking control (refer to the following pages).
Using the key integrated in the RENAULT card
Insert key 1 into the lock in the driver's door and lock or unlock. Locking the doors manually
Turn screw 2 with the door open (using the end of the key) and close the door.
This means that the doors are then locked from the outside.
The doors may then only be opened from the inside or by using the key in the front left-hand door. Interior locking/unlocking door control
Switch 3 controls the doors, boot and, depending on the vehicle, the fuel filler flap simultaneously.
If a door or the tailgate is open or not closed properly, the doors and tailgate lock/unlock quickly.
If you need to transport objects with the boot open, the other opening elements can still be locked: with the engine stopped, press switch 3 for more than five seconds to lock the other opening elements.
Locking the doors without the RENAULT card
For example, in the event of a discharged battery or the RENAULT card temporarily not working, etc.
With the engine switched off and an opening element (door or boot) open, press and hold switch 3 for more than five seconds.
When the door is closed, all the doors and the tailgate will be locked.
Unlocking the vehicle from the outside is only possible with the RENAULT card in the vehicle's access zone or using the key integrated in the RENAULT card.
Door and tailgate status indicator
With the ignition on, the warning light integrated in switch 3 informs you of the locking status of the opening elements:
- indicator light on, the doors and tailgate are locked,
- indicator light off, the doors and tailgate are unlocked.
When you lock the doors, the indicator light remains lit and then goes out.

2006 Nissan Sentra. Right passenger door wouldn't open from outside, then my kid turned on the interior child lock, meaning the door is unable to be opened from either side. Where do I go from here? C


2 or 4 door? If 2, you should still be able to use key on exterior, and I don't think they have a child lock on 2 doors, so I'm guessing 4. With car unlocked, can't you open rear doors from outside even with child lock on?

Unable to open car doors with car key from outside of the car


Did you get in any type of crash with that door? I think it might be jammed or part of the locking mechanism was bent. You can bring it in, it shouldn't be too hard to fix.

After using slim jim car door will not open from outside or inside


You probably knocked the door linkage off during the slim jum operation, You will need to remove the inner door panel and re-connect the door handle linkage. Hopefully you did not break the plastic clip.

My rear door on the passenger side is stuck so I can't open it from the outside. but today when I had the door open to ***** the problem my little brother flipped the button and turned on the child lock....


It sounds like the plastic connecting bit that links the outside door lever to the rod, that operates the door mechanism, has broken or become disconnected. To check, you will need to remove the trim on the inside of the door, after removing any screws and the inside door lever. However now that the child safety lock has been set it could be very difficult to get the door open.
All I can suggest is that you look at the other rear door to locate the position of the safety tab and then try to disengage it by using a suitable thin blade or something on your bad door so that you can again use the inside lever.
Once you have the inside trim off and the plastic sheet, you will see an access hole for the door mechanism and the outside operating handle of the door. It should be attached to the actuating rod by the aforementioned plastic bit. If plastic bit appears OK try re-attaching it or replacing it if broken. If the part of the handle which attaches to the rod is broken, the handle will need replacing.
