Question about 2005 Dodge Ram

Open Question

I had to slim jim my passenger door of a 2005 dodge ram p/u. (this truck is bare bones; manual windows/locks etc...) when i slim jimmed the door open i must have popped a link of some sort between the key lock mechanism and the button of the manual lock. i found a rod attached to the lock mechanism and i'm thinking it attaches to the rod with the button, but i can't see where it attaches so the key lock can engage/disengage the button. any help would be appreciated!

SOURCE: key lock on drivers door won't unlock the door

you need to take the door panel off, there is a rod in there that connects to the lock cylinder it frequently pops off, there is a little plastic clip that should hold it on to the cylinder it may be broken!!

SOURCE: 1997 BMW 528i The passenger side front and rear doors won't

I had the same problem on the rear door of my 1998 528i and it was the door actuator that had gone bad. I had to take the rear seat out to get the door panel off. Once I had the door panel off it was not that difficult to replace the door actuator.

After using slim jim car door will not open from outside or inside


You probably knocked the door linkage off during the slim jum operation, You will need to remove the inner door panel and re-connect the door handle linkage. Hopefully you did not break the plastic clip.

Door won't open on the outside or inside after using a slim jim


you probably pulled the rod off of the handle lever. once you get into the truck. take off your inner door panel and re connect those rods. there should be 3 screws on the bottom of the inner door panel. remove those and then lift the panel up and out.

Keys are locked in car and dont want to pay for aaa. I have slim jim how do I unlock door with it?


A lot of newer cars can't be opened with a slim jim anymore. A good kit uses a small bag that inflates with air to allow a long rod to unlock (electric door locks) These work much better.

I used a slim jim and now my door won't open from the outside.


Open up the door panel and put the control rod back on. that often happens when getting in that way...still cheaper than a locksmith or a window!! (clip is probably in the bottom of the door)

Slim jim did not work in opening the veh.


take an old auto antenna or, a very stiff metal rod and, using a plastic blade (like a plaster knife) bend the glass on the driver's side door; at the top of the door; gently outward; place a rubber or, wood spacer (eraser, wedge etc) between the door frame and, the glass: you only need one inch space; use the rod to press /pull the button / lever on the passenger side
