    I'll give it a shot. One other thing that's not so concerning, is the passenger door won't lock! Could that problem be related to a central locking system? Is there a way to bypass the system entirely?

    This is my first Porsche and may be last if these silly problems keep coming up.

    The Porsche dealer says I need two new door locks. Electronic problem.

    They want to charge me $2700 to replace them.

    Not pretty. Think I'll look for another quote.

    Thanks for your suggestion.

If you can take off the inner door panel cover there is most probably gonna be a real thick gauge metal rope/wire that connects to the back side of the door panel cover that you took off just slide the end into the opening. it most probably just fell out of place

Door is loked on rear driver side want open


Won't open from outside? Won't open from inside? Equipped with power door locks? IF so, and won't open inside/outside, suspect stuck power door lock actuator. Sometimes working the lock/unlock button will make the door unlock. If not, the door will require disassembly from inside to determine what the failure may be. If the door needs disassembly while in the closed position, the paneling/clips may get damaged FYI

Passenger door can be opened from inside but not from outside...how too fix???


Remove the door lining and look inside by the lock. There is a linkage that has come adrift. To remove the door lining, remove handles, escutcheons, and arm rests. Using a wide blade screw driver gently pop the plastic rivets that hold the lining to the door.

My 06 sentra driver door won't open from outside or inside so i can't take door panel out unless i open the door please help


Idea - open up the passenger side door and see how the locking mechanism works. Then with a coat hanger devise a tool to open the door.

Then using same tool apply same technique to driver side door to open and repair.

Opening the drivers door doesnt automatically open the passangers door


Some vehicle locking systems allow a single button press to unlock the driver's side door and require a second button press to unlock the passenger side door. Likewise, use of the key to unlock the driver's side door does not automatically unlock the passenger side.

My drivers side rear door will not open from the inside or outside


I had exact problem Santa Fe 2007 2008 lock was stuck in locked position and door would not open from inside or out. All other doors would unlock with auto key remote. Carefully work the inside lock towards the open position as you lock and unlock the door with the remote. As you press unlock try to assist the lock to open. I did this a few times and the lock became free to the open position and all worked perfectly after this.

Im a girl and no nothing about cars. i have a 95 olds cutlass supreme. both of the front doors will not open from the outside, yet work fine from the inside. the the locks work fine to. any ideas


It is not really normal on front doors, but when the door is open, if you have a look at the latch on the door you may see a little lever. This is called a kiddy lock, well it is here in NZ, it prevents the door being opened from the inside accidentally by fidgeting little hands. Try moving the lever to its opposite position.

the inside door handle is probably broken. the cable may have popped out but usually its because the clips on the inside door handle break off. luckily you can just replace the handle and not have to get a whole new door panel

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!

No idea here without removing the door panel myself to have a good look so i would suggest that as you open door from outside then it isnt the central door locking but a mechanical problem like the plastic clip has come off or wasnt fitted right and now its dropped out of the hole on the door lock mechanism

The cable going to must have come undone or handle leaver inside is broken. The interior door panel will have to be removed to verify problem.
