Re: Lock mechanism in my doors is broke
The rod inside the door has come off this happens often, most of the time its because the srcew holding the inside door handle is loose try tightening it first, if this does't work remove the inside door handle held on with a t15 or t 20 scew and see if the rod has come off at the handle try pulling on the rods to unlock the door then open it, once the door is open remove door panel 2 screws at bottom and just pry up on the soft upper grommets if it a half door reomve door panel and plastic moisture barrier rods connect from the outside lock cylinder to the lock mech and rods also go from the inside lock to the mech one or both of these has come off reconnect them sometime the clips to hold them in place fall down into the bottom of the door if they are not on the rods look there..hope this helps

Sounds like the lock mechanism is stuck on the locked position. Since you didn't specify make and model this is a best guess. Make sure the lock is in the unlock position and try manipulating the rod connected to the outside handle (since child lock is on the inside handle won't work)
Yes,the lock mechanism has either gone bad and needs replaced or is disconnected from the system.Whether it be accidentally disconnected while repairs being done or wire fell loose,pull the door panel and check it.If connected and has power when checked with a test light,it should work.If has power and no action,replace it.
Not enough info. It could be simply the interior handle broke and a new one is about 30 bucks. U say it won't lock. This could be cause by a stuck door lock actuater. This part may have caused the handle to break. U need to find a good mechanic & he will have to take the door panel off and see exactly what is wrong and give u an estimate. Good luck.
Same thing happened with mine. It turned out that the
power door lock motor went out. Since the handle or the switch can unlock the
driver's door, both of these mechanisms are connected. When the door lock motor
goes out it freezes in whatever position, it was last engaged.
hi this sounds like one of your locks has stuck inside the door, sometimes the locking mechanism gets stuck in the upright position and can not right itself, the only way you might be able to do it for a quick fix is remove the central locking fuse and lock it manually, try locking it from the opposite door that you can not turn the key in that should work, or manually lock the doors from the inside and then lock the last door with the key, then once you have done that try putting the fuse back in and then unlock it, if that does not work you might have to get a garage to remove the door panels and find out which lock is sticking...sorry its not much help but its something you can try.
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.
The outside door handle spring is broke ,or the latch spring is broke. The only way to tell is remove the door panel and inspect the rod from the handle to latch. Look for broken spring on handle. I have installed an external spring from the handle rod to latch to keep the rod in the full up position.
Which is it, 98 Eclipse, or 06 Impala? Either way, your door lock actuator is stuck in the locked position either electrically or mechaically. The way to check this is to remove the door panel and unplug the actuator. If door lock can now be moved then you have an electrical problem (faulty door lock switch or faulty door lock module). If you still cannot unlock door then actuator is mechanically bad and must be replace (usually the case)
