I can think of two possibilities:

1) The electronic lock is malfunctioning and forcing the door to lock. From the inside of the car, try forcing the lock to the 'unlocked' position. If you can do this with your had, but it 'snaps' back to 'locked' then it's an electrical problem. Possibly the lock solenoid itself, or the BCM.

2) If you cannot force the lock to the 'unlocked' position, then it's some sort of mechanical problem - maybe the lock is just jammed. Try spraying oil into the locking mechanism from the outside and working the lock until it's free. Otherwise, remove the interior door panel and diagnose the mechanical lock.

Passenger door can be opened from inside but not from outside...how too fix???


Remove the door lining and look inside by the lock. There is a linkage that has come adrift. To remove the door lining, remove handles, escutcheons, and arm rests. Using a wide blade screw driver gently pop the plastic rivets that hold the lining to the door.

Opening the drivers door doesnt automatically open the passangers door


Some vehicle locking systems allow a single button press to unlock the driver's side door and require a second button press to unlock the passenger side door. Likewise, use of the key to unlock the driver's side door does not automatically unlock the passenger side.

Honda accord power door lock


Try pushing in on the inside door handle while you try opening from the outside with your key. Sounds like you have a lock rod inside the door hanging up the operation you are trying to do or someone tried slim jiming your car

Vw golf mk4 my rear passenger door willnot open with central locking key system. i can't even open it from the inside, pull the door handle and the lock pin rises but door won't open. i believ


This worked for me on 2008 Mk5 Golf, after the rear passenger door would not open fro outside or inside.

Hold the inside door latch open and keep it extended, then with the key fob open and close the door locks (still holding the inside latch open). Keep locking and unlocking the door, then it made a kluck and it released.

My drivers side rear door will not open from the inside or outside


I had exact problem Santa Fe 2007 2008 lock was stuck in locked position and door would not open from inside or out. All other doors would unlock with auto key remote. Carefully work the inside lock towards the open position as you lock and unlock the door with the remote. As you press unlock try to assist the lock to open. I did this a few times and the lock became free to the open position and all worked perfectly after this.

Cannot open passenger door from the inside, works ok from outside


Must be the internal door linkage has slipped off from the inside door handle. You will have to get the door panel removed to fix that linkage. This is all assuming it's a front passenger door you're having the problem with.
Rear doors have child safety locks built in that prevent the doors from opening from the inside, to keep the little ones from opening the rear doors accidentally and tumbling out. Those you can just slide a safety lever to allow it to be opened from the inside.

I have a ford focus w reg, my passenger door won't open. I can't lock the doors using remote because it only locks three doors, i have to lock the passenger door manually. but now after locking the...


You will probably need assistance with the repair, but first try this. Spray some spray lubricant like WD40 into the keyhole on the exterior using the tiny straw provided with the lubricant can. Try locking and unlocking manually using your key in the outside key lock and try activating the handle to open the door while you have someone pull in and out on the door. Once it's open, you may need to remove the interior panel to see if something is rusted, worn or bent.
