Inspect the inside door handle closely. Those are notorious for breaking. They start by cracking and then it doesn't pull on the rods that go to the latching mechanism hard enough to open the door. Did you notice that it started getting to where you had to keep pulling on the handle harder and harder to get the door to open? If so I would almost bet that you need a new inside door handle. They are pretty easy to replace but you will need to remove the door panel. The latch mechanism may be messed up or maybe just needs some lubrication.

I need to disengage the locking mechanism on my sliding door. It sounds like it unlatches but will not open. HELP PLEASE!


You will need to remove the inside panel from the inside of van to access the cables/linkage to see if they are disconnected, try opening from the inside button, also check lock mechanism to see if it is unlocking both electrically and manually. If you slammed real hard you may have done something to the latch.

How does the 1999 Tahoe tailgate open?


The right side can be unlocked with the key, once opened, the left side can be opened. Mine, the left side requires me to push in slightly while ensuring the release handle is pulled to it's furthest point before it will unlatch. If the electrical contacts at the door frame are dirty, the door may not unlock when pushing the button up front thus requiring the key to be used in the rear door. If this is not the solution, the latch rods inside the door need adjusted which requires some mechanical expertise.

Check the latch itself (on the door) is in the open position, ans didn't accidentally flip to the closed position. This has to be open so it can fit over the stud in the door jamb, where it flips over the stud to latch the door.
If so, while holding door handle (as if you were trying to open/unlatch door), flip latch open, with a finger or a screwdriver.

1996 BMW 740 il the front passanger side door is closed, lock broke and don't know how to get panel off,


If you can't get the door open then you can't get the panel off its as simple as that, there are screws under the door card that need to be removed to gain access to the inner door workings, without getting the door open you would have to remove the wing to gain access to the hinge bolts & remove the whole door from the vehicle, then you may still have problems with the door having its mechanism locked around the door frames pin or loop

The locking mechanism on the drivers side door,is locked in the closed positin.Cant get door to shut?


cheffenwolfb, What you need to do is to take a screwdriver and put it in the catch in place of the locking striker. Pull the door handle to the open position and pull the locking catch open with the screwdriver. Try the door a few times to be sure that it doesn't do it again. A little lubrication on the catch wouldn't hurt. Good luck with this.

I HAE A 2002 VOLKWAGEN GTI DRIVER SIDE INTERIOR LIGTS ALSO THE DOOR OPEN INDICATOR LIGHT ON DASH SHOWS DOOR OPEN


Hello there. If you are having those problems i am led to believe that the sensor switch of the driver door is faulty or has come loose. With the door open look for a little button. this button is usually sticking out of the frame on the car. Some vehicles have this button on the door as well. If you dont see a button that means that the switch is in the door lock mechanism. Some VW's have the switch in the lock mechanism, which makes it a pain to replace. Below are pictures of the two different types, Button and lock style.

1998 4x4 ford explore driver side door will not


There are long linkage rods from the inside handle to the latch assembly. There should be an adjustment on these links. Too tight keeps latch from locking, too loose it won't unlatch. Use a screw driver or rod to trip the latch asm so you don't have to keep opening and closing the door. Also if it sticks closed and won't unlatch, the door won't be locked closed on you.

Driver side door will not shut and it appears that the door lock is misaligned


Hello there RealPGMR,

What a coincidence, this just happened to a neighbor of mine.

In her case the locking mechanism had closed without being in the door.

Take a closer look at the lock jaws.
Are they open or closed?
If it's hard to tell, compare to the other door.
They should be open enough to accept the post on the door frame

If this seems to be the case, to fix it:
  • Get a screwdriver, don't use your finger.
  • Stand inside the door
  • Make sure it's unlocked
  • Stick the screwdriver where the post on the door frame would normally go.
  • Pull the door handle like you were trying to open the door while at the same time pulling the screwdriver towards you.
  • The jaws should release. The door should close.
If this is not the case, we can check the alignment of the mechanism. Let me know either way.

Remember: Good things come to those who Rate.
