My electric locks are working but the door will not open from the inside. It is happening to all doors. I can open the door from the outside.

    When un-jammed will all of the doors work? Or will this most likely require a new part?

  • walter niemasz Mar 20, 2011

    does this require a mechanic to unjam? Does this normally mean a bad part?

How do you open a car door if the door is closed and the door handel doesn't work ?


Try getting in from the other side and then opening the trouble door. This sometimes happens when the door wasn't closed properly, or the lock was activated with the handle pulled. It happens on both of my cars, one a Honda and the other an Oldsmobile.

98 accord door handle broke door will not open


A non electric door, (which?) wont open,lock works ok, handle wont open the door.
What can I do to fix it.
well telling the door to us would help, and options.
so no electric locks,
there are 2 levers. one inside and one outside.
so you pull the door card (inside door covering)
and look at both locks , the inside pull, its it working?
then look at the key lock cylinder. is it connected still
and last are both connected to the latch mechanism.
one can cycle this latch lever inside the door shell.
if that fails the latch is busted.
all this is covered in the FSM ,why not read it.? (under body)
free , too.

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!

I have a 1994 LeSabre that I locked the keys in. Some helpful people helped me get in, but in the process they messed up the door mechanism and now I can't open the door from the outside. The electric lock...


Hello: You need to remove the door panel and connect the rod that goes from the outside door handle to the latch assembly inside the door. If anything is broken it will have to be replaced.

1997 Geo Metro rear door won't open!


I have the same car, same problem. I've still not been able to fix it, despite taking the inside panels off the rear doors, checking the rods were seated, applying WD-40 to the lock mechanisms, and manually working the mechanism. Child locks are not engaged, but I tried putting them on and off too. Just won't open.

The front door outside handle quit working, opens from inside


replace the outside door handle. happened to me with same car, had to replace both handles. poor design causes the lifter arm to bend and eventally causes it to not lift enought to open the door.

Passenger door will not open


I can think of two possibilities:

1) The electronic lock is malfunctioning and forcing the door to lock. From the inside of the car, try forcing the lock to the 'unlocked' position. If you can do this with your had, but it 'snaps' back to 'locked' then it's an electrical problem. Possibly the lock solenoid itself, or the BCM.

2) If you cannot force the lock to the 'unlocked' position, then it's some sort of mechanical problem - maybe the lock is just jammed. Try spraying oil into the locking mechanism from the outside and working the lock until it's free. Otherwise, remove the interior door panel and diagnose the mechanical lock.
