If I read you right, lift the outside door handle, then take a ink pen, and pull the latch open.

I have a 2002 Ford explorer and I can't figure out how to get the child safety lock off. The door doesn't shut now due to trying to disengage the lock. What can I do?


the child safety lock is normally a small lever at the edge of the door and has no effect on closing a door
it just prevents the door from being opened on the inside
what may have happened is that the door lock mechanism is in the 1/2 closed position and will not allow full lock (close) to occur
place a small screw drive under the latch or tongue of the lock and pull out as you press the door handle as if opening the door
that should then place the latch in the correct position for latching the door when closed properly

Why won't the driver side manual slider door open?


The rod from the handles to the lock mechanism could have come off or become bent to the point that it won't work the latch anymore. The prior problems were probably just symptoms of the problem you have now. Will have to take the door panel off and manually trip the latch.

2007 ford freestar lift gate will not open even though I can hear the lock disengaging. Still feels locked. It is manual open, but cannot lift it, feels locked.


Try pressing the door closed while unlocking and releasing. If the door previously has been slammed shut hard or just due to general wear and tear the latching mechanism can become slightly relocated. This means that when the door closes the door is pressing tighter than normal against the door seal. The compressed door seal will put a lot of strain on the latch mechanism and can hinder its retraction when released. By pressing the door closed and therefore removing the strain due to the door seal you might allow the release mechanism enough freedom of movement to retract when released. If having got the door open then immediately adjust/relocate and lubricate the lock/release mechanism such that you achieve a happy medium of the door closing with a weatherproof seal but not so tightly as to put the latch under a lot of strain.

My BMW x3 2005 back door will not close. The latch doesnt seem to catch. We tried locking and unlocking the doors you can hear the mechanism working but latch is catching. Lock/latch seems to just spin...



Hold down the "open" button on your remote and simultaneosly pull the inside handle of that door open. I just had the issue with my driver's door and as my son tried to "help" (he's 9), one of the passenger doors also got stuck! After not finding a non-tech response, played around some until the the dran latch obliged on the front door. Repeated on passenger door and whew! :-)

2004 lexus gx470 rear door won't open...I can hear the lock click when I press the alarm key but the door will not open


Try opening door manually from inside, once open and make sure child safety switch (near lock mechanism isn't between on/off) They're known for jamming between settings. If that doesn't work then you'll have to remove inside door panel and access latch mechanism.

Passenger door locked shut


You will have to remove the door panel with the door closed, the linkage to the lock cylinder is most likely broken or come off, with the door panel off you can manually open door and repair problem, the parts are cheap, the labor isn't.

Door lock


When the actuator moves the latch up, it connects the outside door handle to the opening mechanism. When the latch is down, the outside door handle is disconnected from the mechanism so that it cannot be opened. So in this case your latch needs to be replaced, the latch or one of its parts is malfunctioning. the outside handle is never beening disconnected from the latch. remove the door panel visually inspect for damage, and take the proper repair
