Locking the vehicle will lock it from the out side.
If you are trying to child proof your rear doors, when you open the doors, on each of the rear doors there should be a little button you can move to lock the rear door from the inside.
Please let me know if I can further assist you.

Thanks for choosing FixYa. Some cars are made that way. Most of the newer models have a child proof lock on the inside of the door. You might want to check that switch to see what the setting is. It is possible it is broke.

My back doors on my 1997 ford explorer will not open, from the inside or the out side, what is the best way to open the back doors with out damiging them?


if it has gone on the link arm best way is from inside but you may damage the door cover you have to lift the cover some times you can just get to the screws and remove them all depends on the lineament of the back door, if you cannot get to it from that side then the only way is from the part were the it goes over the bottom of the window but you may need a new card after. or could try a metal coat hanger from inside the window down the side to the lock make a smaller hook on one end and hope for the best. best to doit with the window as far down as you can get it.

I have a town and country 2006. yesterday my passenger side sliding door button to open the door got jamed and the door does not open from the inside....the door opens from outside. not a power door


You need to remove the inside panel of this door, and confirm the inside lock button is broken...you can first try this at your local salvage yard...then do it on your Van...be sure to keep the assembly from the salvage yard...as you may need some of the pieces...the dealers still sell the complete assembly but cost is much higher...Hope this helps.

1990 Honda Accord CB. When I shut the door I locked it at the same time. The door is now stuck locked but the popper is in the unlocked position. So it thinks it is unlocked when it actually isn't. Then...


You'll have to use a screwdriver. Stick it inside the locked latch on the door itself, the hole that holds it closed against the car body, then pry on it while at the same time pulling the door handle up to open it. The lock piece should swing open and your door should close and open normally again.

Hold both buttons the Open and the Lock on your remote key for about 60 seconds, it should turn the lights inside the car and the problem should be fixed.
