Driver rear door stuck closed on 2002 Santa Fe Hyundai. Any ideas on how to fix it?


It's usually the lock that is stuck in lock position.Roll down the window,grab a rubber hammer and as you reach inside and unlock the door,HIT THE DOOR at the locking area with the rubber hammer.Now try to open the door.It may take a few tries but works to open doors 90% of the time.DO NOT lock this door until you have lubed the internal locking mechanical parts and are sure they work.

I have a 2007 Hyundai Accent and I am having trouble with my doors and windows my driver side door won't unlock from the outside


There is a mechanical linkage that connects the lock cylinder to the mechanism. The linkage has a plastic coupler that has probably failed. As to the window it sounds like a failed switch. Any repair shop or body shop should be able to fix both easily.

Cannot open rear drivers side door from outside or inside. door panel is off, door is closed. child lock is on. tried pulling cable, wont move. tried lifting up the child lock with a thin blade


Sounds like the lock mechanism is stuck on the locked position. Since you didn't specify make and model this is a best guess. Make sure the lock is in the unlock position and try manipulating the rod connected to the outside handle (since child lock is on the inside handle won't work)

Sounds like the locking mechanism is worn out and needs to be replaced any mechanic in you're local area should replace it rather cheaply.

Driver side door jammed shut


Not to my knowledge. The mechanism you talk about is the wiring inside the door if it has electric locks. The only way is to remove the top of the door panel to access the door latch mechanism then slide it away from the latch. If that don't work let me know

Window lock stuck in on position


You are totally confussed here and i suggest you ask a local mechanic to have a look for you ,you may need a new switch mechanism on the door from the sound of it ,these cars can be a bit funny as if you hold the key in the door lock in the open position for a few seconds then the window opens or closes depending on the key movement ,and guess what its all electronic so maybe its the switch mechanism thats had a heart attack in its dear sweet electronic brain causing your problem

Citroen saxo 1.1 driver door will not open


hi drivers, i am looking into the same fault for my mums Saxo forte. there are three problems as well as the post above about the child lock. (on drivers door, remove the trim panel and cut the poly material away on the end near lock. look in to the right and with the 3 T30 size torx bolts removed, carefully tilt the lock towards you so u can see the white plastic.) the child lock is at the bottom. mums wasn't stuck so i looked further into it and found the handle mechanism to be jammed and broken. this has a linkage rod that needs replacing for a few pounds from Citroen. You will need a 4 mm drill and a rivet gun to change door handle. i fixed this and now door opens and closes and will work with the key. but door wont open from inside using the pull lever. looking closely at the top right of the lock unit check make sure the long link rod is connected at both ends, i have now found that there is a spring or connecting bit that allows the door to open from in car. i am trying to find the right part for this without replacing the lock mechanism at around 70. wen i find this and the door works fully again i will post the fix method.

Driver door won't close 1999 ford contour


Drivers side door will not close because, it might have dropped out of alignment and is sagging down slightly!!! or if it has electric door locks, and someone in the family has failed to mention door locks were activated while that one door was still open!!! now lock mechanism has passed it's normal stopping place and is now stuck, therefore already locked and not allowing door to close all the way!! you might try disconnecting battery then try jiggling the lock, and hope silenoid didn't get burned out, open passenger door and look at lock latch, then check drivers side lock latch!!! if your lucky lock latch should unlock when battery is hooked back up. i have seen this problems happen often on older vehicles!!! especially on cars or trucks that have been in fender benders.........body shops know what to check for, they fix problems like this often!!!!! Good luck!!

My drivers side rear door is locked open and I


check the closing mechanism and see if it isnt locked down in the closed position, if it is stick your finger in there and pull it out like it would open while moving the door handle, if thats not the problem, see if there isnt a toy or something stuck in the tracks on the bottom or dirt and leaves on the top
