Question about 2006 Nissan Xterra

1 Answer

My locked door won't open

My rear driver's side door stopped opening all of a sudden. i tried opening it from the outside, thinking that the child safety lock was somehow engaged, but it was a no-go. the lock on the inside of the door still jumps slightly when i hit the unlock button on the keyfob or the buttons on the 2 front door armrests, but the door itself will not open. the handle doesn't seem to be catching. i partially took the door panel apart (i popped off the top of the elbowrest and partially exposed the lock), and everything seems to be connected, but it's like the lock seems to get caught on something inside the door. can you tell me what's wrong, and what to do to fix it. also, i'm kind of stumped on how to fully take off the rear door panel.

I have a 2005 Xterra and the same thing started happening to me on an intermitent basis. The dealership eventually replaced the guts of the door release equipment under warrenty but that was after 3 trips to the dealership.
Now my rear hatch won't open. My theory is that after an total repaint (hail) in the summer of 2006 the body shop made something out of wack with these door mechanisms.

Cannot open rear drivers side door from outside or inside. door panel is off, door is closed. child lock is on. tried pulling cable, wont move. tried lifting up the child lock with a thin blade


Sounds like the lock mechanism is stuck on the locked position. Since you didn't specify make and model this is a best guess. Make sure the lock is in the unlock position and try manipulating the rod connected to the outside handle (since child lock is on the inside handle won't work)

My drivers side rear door will not open from the inside or outside


I had exact problem Santa Fe 2007 2008 lock was stuck in locked position and door would not open from inside or out. All other doors would unlock with auto key remote. Carefully work the inside lock towards the open position as you lock and unlock the door with the remote. As you press unlock try to assist the lock to open. I did this a few times and the lock became free to the open position and all worked perfectly after this.

Why wont the rear door open on my 2009 gmc acadia


from inside or outside ? if won't open from inside your child safety lock is probably tripped. if won't open from outside you probably have a lock rod that popped off inside the door, in which I would have the dealer fix it, it involves taking door pad off and when you can't open door to take pad off ,most of the time it damages it.

Right rear child lock is on the door but cant get the door open


Child Locks will stop anyone on the inside of the car from opening the door. If the child lock is on then the door can only be opened from the outside of the car. Of course the main door lock must be off just as any door must be unlocked to be opened from the outside.

Now if you do not want the child door lock to be on then you must first open the door from the outside with the main lock open or unlocked. Look at the space that is covered when the door is closed. There you will see the lever that turns the child lock on or off. Simply move it to the off position.

Good Luck.

2006 buick lucerne back doors won't open


My friend just had this problem and he reached in and pulled the inside door handle back as far as it would go, and then let it go, allowing it to 'snap' back. For some reason this fixed it. We have no idea why. By doing this on one door, both rear door locks freed up and the rear locks are now working. Before, both rear locks were stuck and you could not open the doors from the inside nor the outside. Not sure why it works, but maybe it will work for you!

Rear Drivers side door will not open from the outside, Handle moves to freely; and will not open from the inside because of the child locks.Suspect it will not open from the outside because of a broken...


try switching off the child lock. but if it doesn't work your guess might be right. usually the door handls are plastics, easily breaks when forced. just try prying of one of the edge of the door panel and try to peep through just to be sure.
