Right front passenger door will not lock.


sounds like the latch actuator has failed, i dont think it has a seperate fuse for each door, you could check that you havent got a broken wire in the door wiring around the door hinge area. the actuator is part of the latch, but you may be able to get just the actuator which is easy swap over, check the wiring first, you could use a test lamp or circuit tester on the connector to the actuator to see if it being powered up when you press the plip. latch the door shut before testing, good luck.

Passanger side door locking problem. when I insert the Key, it can turn forward to lock the door, but can not turn backward to unlock the door. And I tried the second key, does not work either.


Really sounds like one of 2 possible problems.
First, perhaps the door latch itself is broken, and that is unlikely, except that I am unfamiliar with that particular latch on that particular car.
Second, it sounds like, if you were to take the door panel off, you would find the latch is locked because one of the locking levers is holding the door latch locked.
There or 2 or 3 lever like things that affect the latch.
There is a lever from the outside door lock that goes to the door latch.
There is a lever from the inside locking handle that goes to the door latch, and yet may be one more.
If any of these are "stuck" or broken, they will "hold" the door latch in the locked position.
Be blessed.

We have a problem with the doors locking when you shut them. they wont unlock with the key and we think that te locks are broken. do you have a solution for this?


Its possible taht you have any linkage problem there; first check the FUSE, use this Ford-Explorer Owners Manual to know the specific location.

  1. Remove the door trim panel and watershield.
  2. Disconnect the rods from the handle and lock cylinder, and from the remote control assembly.
  3. Remove the latch assembly attaching screws and remove the latch from the door.
  4. Installation is the reverse of removal.

Door Lock Cylinder
  1. Open the window.
  2. Remove the trim panel and watershield.
  3. Disconnect the actuating rod from the lock control link clip.
  4. Slide the retainer away from the lock cylinder.
  5. Remove the cylinder from the door.
  6. Use a new gasket when installing to ensure a watertight fit.
  7. Lubricate the cylinder with suitable oil recommended for this application.

Hope helps (remember rated this).

Push door and it justs wont click shut moved swinging arm in door with screwdriver but wont lock


if it wont lock that means that its broken replace the whole latch. its easy just take the door panel off then take the linkages off the latch take out the two or three screws holding the latch on and pull it out. than reverce those steps when installing the new latch.

I have a 98 jeep grand cherokee, and my driver side door lock is in the lock position and I can not shut my door. How do I release the lock?


Have you tried unlocking it with the key? If that does not work, try moving the latch with a scredriver, back into the open position. If the latch has broken internally you will need to remove the inner door panel and remove the latch assembly for visual inspection and replacement. You can get another latch at just about any scrapyard and key will not need to be changed to do this.

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.
