Possibly- you will need to take off the door panel. Look all around the panel for screws securing the panel. Usually the are near the door inside handle and securing the armrest. also check around the outside edges sometimes there are screws there too. Once the panel is off with the window up you can carefully pull off the plastic seal and see the door outer hadle and lock cylinder. These are attached by rods to the latch assembly. Make sure nothing is obstructing the movement of these. It is possible for the rod to come loose in which case you need to replace it and snop a small conector that holds the rod. the rods are l shaped on the ends - the end goes into the connector and then it spins around and snaps onto the rod.If this helps please reply and good luck

1995 ford futura doors wont lock

Inside the door is an electric motor that pulls the door lock down to the locked position, either the rod has come off to the door latch from the door lock motor or the motor has failed. Remove the door panel and check it for power when the button is pressed for the power locks, if it gets power then it is most likely the motor that is the problem.

How much would it cost to fix the doors on my 2003 tiburon. both the driver and passanger doors wont lock . what is wrong and how much should it cost

I'm not sure what you mean by "won't lock". If you mean won't lock with the key or automatic lock button then most likely the plastic piece which holds the rod to the lock is probably broken. It's odd for it to happen to both locks at the same time UNLESS someone has tried to break in to your car with a slim jim or the like. To see if this is the problem remove the door panel and look at the lock see if all of the rods are connected.

depending on how the car is set, the unlock may have to be depressed twice to unlock the passenger door. i'm guessing you have already tried this? if not give it a shot.

if that didn't fix it, then sit in the car and hit the unlock button twice and see if you hear the passenger door unlock/lock mechanism trying to unlock the door. if you can hear it trying to pop the lock, then it may be an issue with the cold. my '99 323 was this way in the cold. if you can't hear it trying to pop the lock, then the module in that door is bad.

also when was the last time BMW replaced the battery in that key?

good luck.

2004 Civic Drivers door lock

The driver's side door lock button is designed not to lock from the inside unless the handle is pulled, or the power switch is used. This serves as a reminder to not lock your keys inside.

If you are inside, and push down on the button (not the switch) hard enough to lock it, you've probably damaged it.
