Sounds like the door hinges may need some grease applied to them. open door and spray a teflon based lubricant onto hinges, move door back and forth and spray hinges one more time. if this does not free up the door then I would say that there may be a problem with the alignment of the hinges.

How to open rear drivers side door will not open from inside or outside

I don't know what kind of car or truck you have, but I had that same thing happen a several times.
You likely have a inside door latch theat is messed up.
The last one I had , the problem was a tiny spring, (hardly much bigger that the coil spring inside a ball point pen), had fallen down inside the doort and was lying on the bottom of the inside of the door.
You might be needing a new or used door latch.
If you do not take it to a body shop and have them open it for you, you will most likely need to "tear" the inside door panel apart and take a good flashlight and try to "trip" the door latch through the holes in the metal door that are inside the door panel.
You may find this really hard to do, and it may take you many hours of trying.
This has been my experience, and I've had to do this about 5 times in 25 years.
You would eventually need to get a used inner door panel to put back on the inside of the door.
Be blessed.

Hello, i am having a problem with my 1998 two door honda civic dx. My drivers side door will not open from either inside or out, and the passenger door will not open from the outside. I need help getting...

unfortunately, the drivers side door panel will have to be broken. you have to unscrew all screws holding the door panel on, then pull really hard. pull it back and see if you can find an inner plate near the window that you can remove. this will grant you access to the rods and such. this is done from inside the car, and to get in if youre locked out, get a coat hanger, make a hook, and send it through the trim on the passenger side to pull the handle.

do the passenger side first. at least youll be able to enter your car. there are small plugs covering the screws. after all screws are undone, it will pop off. there are clips that secure it in place, and will probably need to be replaced when done due to them being brittle, old plastic. start removing the panel from the bottom. it will become very apparent how the panel comes off.

Problem opening d/door bmw x5

Hi remove the door card, you may need to reposition the rod, they sometimes bend making it harder to to reach the open position, most likely you will be able to fix this at no cost, just bend the rod back where it should be.

Drivers door wont open iside or out all seems fine but nothing works

It sounds like your linkage has disconnected from the latch. I guess your door is stuck shut. It may be possible, but really hard, but you could try to slide something into the window and try to hit the latch release. It'll be tricky though... If you do manage to pop the door open that way, you'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you have to pull back the seal covering the door in order to access the linkage assembly from inside the door

Drivers power lock will not unlock with remote.

the door lock actuator is defective, they get really hard to move when they go bad, that is why the difficulty with the key.

VW Polo 2001 - Electric Windows wont open from Drivers side..

I removed all 3 switches from driver and passenger door, which is really easy with a flat head screw driver. took them completely apart, very carefully, with a small screwdriver out of a christmas cracker. put them back together again and 2 switches started working, so I put 1 in the drivers side and 1 in the passengers side so now my drivers door window opens and I lean over to open the passenger door. cool, no money spent...yet ;o)

Door ajar light stays on

go to your local parts store and buy a can of PB BLASTER lubricant then open each door and spray the latch assembley really good then close and open the door 10 to 15 times. do this with each door. the door ajar light switch is located in the door latch assembley and cannot be seen so soak the latch assembleys really good so lube reaches the switch. these switches sometimes get stuck but this usually frees up the switch

Fuse box location and how to identify the fuses.

your fuse box should be under your driver side dash... near the floor on the panel it should tell you what fuses are what if not check you owners manual. and depending on which fuses you are talking about there is also one located under you hood but they are rather large fuses nothing that should ever really need to be fixed.
