There is a linkage bar that falls out of the handle. you need to take off the door cover there will be a loose bar. the bar will fit back in to the handle. you'll most likely need a c clip so it stays in place

Kia rio 5 door 2004 drivers door wont open. Removed cent lock fuse but still wont open inside or out

Sounds like a rod might be off inside of the door and the door panel will need to be removed to access the latch and get the door open. Once the door is open, have the problem fixed before you close it again.

How do i fix my drivers door it wont open inside/outside?

Very difficult to do. They sell jimmy kits that can be used through the window trim to get the door to unlatch. A locksmith will probably be able to open it for you or try to get the inside door panel off and manually open door using linkage inside of door.

Drivers door wont open

If it were me , I'd remove the inside door panel and take it from there. It may be that you can pry open the lock mechanism with a screw driver or a similar tool, allowing you to open the door - which obviously you must do. Even that, though, will not solve the cause of your problem. You may wind up at the dealer.

Trunk wont open. latch does not work from inside

Make sure the drivers door is open and push the button on the drivers door to open trunk. Keep the drivers door open while you open trunk. If you close the drivers door before opening it, it won't open. Well this is what happens to our car. Don't know if it's a fault or the design but this does work for us.

My driver side door wont open how do i get it

sounds like the door lach is sticking
use some wd40 spray the lock and let it sit 4 a while
now since you have the inside skin off reach inside the door with 1 hand and try and open the door from the outside and see if the lock bar moves it usualy pushes down i think on a lach
if it goes up and down with no resistance make sure it is contacting the lach if yes make sure the door is unlocked
somtimes the lock is just stuck
after unlock open the door
push down on lock bar attached to lock then pull up on it if that fails to open door
after that all fails unlock door have friend pull handle and then give the door a good kick from inside just remember not the kick the glass

Driver door

The rods in the drivers door probably came off.
Somehow you got to take the door panel off from the inside and look.
