I lubricated the window channels with wd-40 but the window still stuck in the fully open position. I managed to get it up by slamming the door, which enabled me to raise it a short distance also by pulling on the window and then using the switch

This sounds like a bad window motor, if you keep pulling up on the glass and hitting the switch you may get it up but allow the switch to cool down every few trys or you will brun switch out, the window motor is bad and needs replacing.

2001 Montero Rear door latch doesn't open in cold weather. The panel you press to open the door doesn't return to rest position.


I had the same problem and someone in the dealership advised me to saturate the entire latch mechanismn with WD 40 before trying to figure out what is wrong with it, I did so and have never had another problem again, I have solved many sticking locks and latch problems with WD 40 ever since and found 90% of the time parts are not needed just a good lubricant to keep things flowing!!! Good luck, hope this helps.

The child locks are stuck it only opens from the outside


there is a slider switch on the door(between door and frame) that you can lock or unlock the child locks to prevent them from opening the door from inside but still can open door from outside----just slide the lock switch to enable or disable the child lock.

if they are stuck/stiff---you may have to remove the door panel for repair.

Usually they work free with a liitle lubricant(WD-40) to slide easier.

My door agar sing won't go off and I have gone to every door and slammed it but it still won't go off


Spray WD-40 in each of the door latches, rear hatch latch, and rear window latch. Open and firmly shut each several times. This will free up the stuck switch.

Ignition stuck in lock position


First, lubricate the key cylinder by spraying wd-40 into it -- this usually frees it.

You can also move the steering wheel back and forth while wiggling the key -- sometimes the steering wheel lock binds the key cylinder.

If this works, you can follow up the wd-40 lubrication with graphite lock lubricant (Pep Boys).

If lubrication doesn't work, let me know, we'll go to the next step.

Lock on Tailgate will not release


Try checking that the handle in the tailgate returns to the 'open' postion. Once in a while, usually during/after the winter, the tailgate handle gets stuck in the 'pressed in' postion. I have to use WD-40 or some other lubricant to get the handle working again, which allows me to unlock and open the tailgate.

Closeing my back drivers side door


If the door itself will not stay closed then it is not the power locks but the latch that is malfunctioning, the locks only allow or disallow the latch from opening when you try to open the door.  Thoroughly lubricate the latch mechanism on the door with something like WD-40 and inspect it for damage, make sure the bolts that hold the latch within the door are tight and are aligned correctly.  After you lubricate it, close and open the door to work the lubricant in.  Also if you have child lock switches on the door, make sure the switch is fully off or on.  If all else fails then the handle/latch mechanism may need to be replaced.
