The latch itself on the door is probably froze up. spray it with blaster and just let it soak, spray it again and pull the handle lever right where it meets the latch pul back and forth while pushing on the door, spray and repeat

    Found that the mechanism wasn't sliding up all the way to activate the catches to release. Replaced the whole latch mechanism and it still isn't working. Must be something with the door lock as I can now open the door from both sides as long as I don't lock it.

97 Mercury Mountaineer driver side door won't open. Outside handle flops around; inside handle won't open door

Try a slim jim first, down the side of the window. Or AAA or locksmith. If no luck, remove the seat first. Find the screws and bolts around the door handle and arm rest. Most Ford's have screws around the outer side of the panel. I don't believe your's does. The panel lifts or pops off. Once the panel is off, you can reach down and open the door. Just a note. I have done some to where the panel came out in pieces.

The inside door handle won't open door from inside outside door works fine it's on drivers side 2006 ford fusion selv6

It sounds like the connecting rod popped out of its plastic connector. Pull the door panel off and check both ends of the rod. It must be unhooked at one end or the other.

My sons's has a 1995 Grand Prix. He can not get in to either front door. He can unlock it from the inside, but can't open from the outside.

You will need to open the door, take the door panel off and reattach the connecting rod that goes to the outside handle.

I have a jeep wrangler 1998 model and i can open from the outside but i cant from the inside

Most likely the rod that connects from the inside lever to the latch has come disconnected. There are small plastic clips that hold the rod to the latch, that may have broke. Would require removing the door panel.

Door wont open from inside or outside

I have just fixed mine. You have to remove the rear seat then remove the side panel that the door is jammed on.Now looking at the door post you will see two screw heads that are crome in colour. I took a small grinder and took of some of the length of the screw These two screws is what holds the door latch to the body which holds the door closed I then drilled a hole threw the bracket and the screws both screws then broke the bracket loose,pushed the screws in and the door opened.Had to buy a new lock assembly from a wrecking yard and took out the to screws I drilled out.of the same car I got the lock assembly Good Luck It worked for me

Drivers side door will not open from the inside but works from the outside.

Open the inside door panel.
There is a big wire that connecting door open lever to the door lock,
The wire could be not in the proper posiiton, and its cause the door cannot open from inside.

Remove the inner door panel and check to make sure that the linkage rod that goes between the outer handle and the latch is connected. It's possible that the plastic end clip broke.
