Hi, my drivers door lock will not allow the key to go all the way in as if something is stuck in the lock and the door handle has to be opened released then opened a second time to open the door, to lock the car i have to use passenger lock (central locking not remote)and the same to open the car. any ideas as to what i can do to fix this, a friend of mine suggested kids may have jammed an object in the lock itself but i am unsure on this, thanks dave, oh the car is focus 1999 (v) 1.4 petrol 5 door hatch

Goto a locksmith and see if they have any sneaky tricks they could do. Worst case scenario the lock on the door will have to be replaced.

You will have to replace the lock cylinder, they come as a set so you will not have different keys, the cause of this is a little pin in the cylinder is stuck, you could try spraying WD40 into the cylinder first, you might get lucky, once in awhile it worked for me.

Car door lock stuck on 1990 Ford Crown Victoria


This car came standard with power door locks and the lock actuators are frozen up and this keeps you from turning the key to open the doors.

Citroen saxo 1.1 driver door will not open


hi drivers, i am looking into the same fault for my mums Saxo forte. there are three problems as well as the post above about the child lock. (on drivers door, remove the trim panel and cut the poly material away on the end near lock. look in to the right and with the 3 T30 size torx bolts removed, carefully tilt the lock towards you so u can see the white plastic.) the child lock is at the bottom. mums wasn't stuck so i looked further into it and found the handle mechanism to be jammed and broken. this has a linkage rod that needs replacing for a few pounds from Citroen. You will need a 4 mm drill and a rivet gun to change door handle. i fixed this and now door opens and closes and will work with the key. but door wont open from inside using the pull lever. looking closely at the top right of the lock unit check make sure the long link rod is connected at both ends, i have now found that there is a spring or connecting bit that allows the door to open from in car. i am trying to find the right part for this without replacing the lock mechanism at around 70. wen i find this and the door works fully again i will post the fix method.

My drivers side rear door is locked open and I


check the closing mechanism and see if it isnt locked down in the closed position, if it is stick your finger in there and pull it out like it would open while moving the door handle, if thats not the problem, see if there isnt a toy or something stuck in the tracks on the bottom or dirt and leaves on the top

The driver side door lock wont go all the way up.


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.

Driver's door lock will not open by key or electronic fob


I was able to determine if you move the inside door handle toward the front of the car, then you could remove the door panel. However, it takes a little force to pot out the plastic clips, but if you work around the outside by appling pressure with a thin tool, such as a putty knife it will pot out.

My problem was a small yellow plastic part that connects the outside and inside door handle rods was broken.

So I plan to replace the part and see if that fixes the provlem. If so I can save over $340 dealer repair costs.

Hi...
You can open By the handle.
But you will need desengage the little bar at the Lock cylinder.
and maybe you can damage the cylinder or handle.
If you have Aftermarket Alarm on your car.
Try to open de hood Pulling the hood realese cable.
From the grill.

But if you don't have aftermarket alarm.
Get a Flat screw driver, and try to insert between the door and body At the upper right corner of the door. Driver side.
If your Radio Anntena is Solid and you can remove easy.
Remove and Insert Beside of the screw driver and PUSH the UNLOCK buttom.

Ok.. I hope this help on your problem...
Thank you for use fixya..

Driver's side door power locks are stuck; door stuck shut.


sounds like the rods are disconnected the clips hold the rods in place the latching mechanism holds the handle in place as well did you replace the speakers or did a shop? if a shop did then they caused this if you did then you may have caused this either way untill you reattach the rods none of it will work. you will have to manually open the door at the latch from inside teh door behind the panel.
