Coincidence? but brother-in-law just called me about the same thing on 2006 Focus that happened today (Feb 07, 2010) -- the latch on the dirver's side just dropped down while he had door open. He then went to the passenger's side and touched the latch over there and it dropped down and stayed. He's not mechanically inclined and is 400 miles away, but is going to try the WD40 thing.

Try spraying with wd40 and hold the inside handle and use a screwdriver or your finger to move the latch catches,im assuming that the latches are in a closed position.You may have to unlock the latch with a key first

Door locked and will not unlock and cant shut door


sounds like the door latch mechanism is stuck in the closed position. if you pull on the door handle and use something like a screw driver and pull the latch claws open the door should work. the latch is the part that closes around the door striker plate bolt to keep the door closed. lube the latch to help keep it from sticking again.

2000 hyundai sonata passenger door lock stuck in locked position


If your talking about the teeth/latch that actually engage around the pin to hold the door closed and not the lock you puhs down to lock it. all you have to do is get a screwdriver or anything small and strong you can stick in it and pull the tooth back into the "open" position. You might have to pull the handle out like your opening the door normally while you do this.

Door doesn't open


Sounds like the latch is stuck in the lock position. You will need to remove the door panel to access the latch. This can be difficult with the door closed. You might have to remove the front seat.

Driver's side door power locks are stuck; door stuck shut.


sounds like the rods are disconnected the clips hold the rods in place the latching mechanism holds the handle in place as well did you replace the speakers or did a shop? if a shop did then they caused this if you did then you may have caused this either way untill you reattach the rods none of it will work. you will have to manually open the door at the latch from inside teh door behind the panel.
