The linkage between the handle and latch is jammed or come adrift

    well, after realizing my car isnt worth much anyways, i just drilled a 'access' hole in the panel (inside) and the door was still locked, and it would not fully unlock, so i manually unlocked it by pushiing up on a small lever inside the door, now it work, but if i lock the door and pull the handle as if i were checking to see if its locked, it would get stuck, so i am leaving that 'access hole' there ;)

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.

This may not be your answer but I had a similar issue a few years ago and had to have a body shop get into the door and replace the handle and linkage. Someone, a child, tried to open the door while locked. He was strong enough and/or handle weak enough that it broke. The door could be opened from the inside handle normally. Cost me about $180 for part, install and repaint to match.

Passenger door on my 2dr 89 LeSabre wont open


You're going to have to take the inner panel off to figure it out. If the seat won't go back far enough, you may have to remove it first.

There is NOT a mechanical connection to the outside door handles on the front doors. There is an electronic "door popping solenoid" This is a electronic problem. I think there was a recall on this.

Broken passenger door handle


Same problem. I have a 2000 Suzuki Esteem GL. A year ago the driver's door handle broke. Heard a sound and then it was loose. Could not open it from outside. Had to open front passenger door, open the driver's door from inside and then go out again to enter from the driver's door. FRUSTRATING. My mechanic had to take the door apart to fix it. Just a week ago, my front passenger door died on me. Can't open it from outside nor inside. The door won't open. This is such a stupid problem that costs lots to repair. Never will buy a Suzuki again. Had too many problems with it (had to fix gas tank, doors that won't open, front axle...).
