Possibly a broken handle of lock rod, or lock rod clip... you will have to remove the inner door panel to see what is going on. Probably the inner door handle.. Search the internet for the part.possibly rockauto.com.

Hello, I have a 94 Toyota Camry. I accident lock my driver back seat door lock as child lock n I can't fix it. Not only that, the handle us broken. How can I unlock the child lock n how to replace the door...


Child lock switch controls are on the driver side door. If you use this controlling switch to unlock the doors and all doors open except for one door. It might be the switch on the driver side door or broken wiring in that switch leading to the door that does not open. You need a mechanics manual to trace the switch or wiring. Your best bet is to take it to a mechanic or a body shop if you find this difficult to do.

2001 beetle passenger door wont lock


You may want to check your wiring harness to that door. The harness runs along the door frame, by door hinge area and it's inside a rubber boot. Most common problem is that a few wires break due to heat and age. If wiring is broken, repair wires if possible. If not possible to repair, recommend you replace the complete harness.
If you are mechanically inclined, you will need to remove the inner door panel to access the harness. Once you have the harness removed, there is a label that identifies the part number for this harness. Good luck and hope this resolves your problem.

There is a plastic bushing the rod is secured with if it is broken you must replace it , if the rod will not stay in place replace the bushing , hope this helps you out

2006 Ford Fusion. Left front door inside handle


This link is from the handle to the latch. The door panel has to be removed in order for this problem to be fixed. The linkage is inside the door panel, it is a small diamater metal rod called a link. If you do the job yourself be careful not to break the door panel. In a shop, the labor is 1 hour for the job & if any, parts will be a seperate charge.

Common problem on 2001 Ford Explores. The reason why your door handle doesn't unlock the door(can't be unlocked by remote either)is due to a broken spring located on the backside of the door handel INSIDE the door. True that your one(or two) of your small exterior springs on your door handle are broken(will cause your handle to flap) but this IS NOT YOUR PROBLEM. The door locks will work if there is a bit of tension holding the handle bracket up. I know it's hard to explain without pics. but here's the ONLY WAY TO FIX THIS. It's not that hard.......... Remove the door panel, only a few screws and a few more holding trim around exit handle then, pull out "snap in" clips on bottom. With a flashlight you'll see back side of door handle. To get to that area you'll have to remove one bolt holding a window frame. Do that(with window in up position) then slide down rail, out of your way. Now, get back to handle. With your light aimed at the backside of handle left slowly the door handle as normal, and you'll realize(while looking at the mechanism) that tension(pulling down of bracket) needs to occur in order for locks(manual and remote)to work properly. Trust me.....you'll figure it out. Once you do, get a spring(pen spring, 30 cent hardware store spring, any small spring!) and hook one end to bracket and the other end to ANYTHING(OUT OF THE WAY) below the door handle thus, causing SLIGHT tension. Try your locks...THEY WILL WORK! YEAH! Replace that one window frame bolt(try your window...just the make sure), replace door panel and your done. TOTAL COST: 30 cents or FREE(if you have a small spring) Ford dealers will charge $150 to $285! Yikes!
