If its a storm door with a single handle, make sure its not in the locked position and see if it clears the latch on the jamb. ( the side). If its an entry door, make sure you have your backset, (the part that goes in from the edge of the door) in the correct setting. You would have to remove the knobs to check that. Lets start there.

I have a 1999 Suzuki Grand Vitara, The backdoor is unlocked but it won't open when you squeeze the handle. Is there any way that I can get the backdoor open without having to take it to a dealer?

it sounds to me like the linkage inside the door may have come off. you have to remove the door panel that is if you can open the door from inside. if not you may be able to open the door with a slim jim. no matter what you have to get the door panel off to fix your problem. that can be a task if you can't open the door.

Elantra Backdoor shuts closed and does not stay open.

replace the hatch struts. I'm assuming you're talking about the back hatch. There should be 1 or 2 struts (look like shock asborbers), they've probably gone bad.
