Remove both sides of the handle and you should be able to slide the lock mechanism so the door opens.

Driver door's handle doesn't unlock all the 4 doors.It unlocks only driver door.Before the touch handle use to unlock all the 4 doors.The same works well from front passenger door.


The vehicle can be programmed to either open all the doors, or just the driver door. Check in the main menu for changing that function from just drivers door to all. (its also outlined in your owners manual)

My keyless entry for my 2008 Volvo s 40 won't work. I've tried replacing the battery but it still doesn't work. Anything I may can do before spending money on a new key.?


How are you trying to open the door , button on key fob ? With this system you can pull up on the drivers handle an it activates Antennas in the external side door handles (C30/C70 front doors, S40/V50 rear doors)
  • Antennas in the passenger compartment and cargo compartment
  • An antenna in the rear bumper
  • Quick lock motors in the lock units in the side doors
  • The remote keyless entry (RKE) receiver receives a signal from the key
  • The switch in the clutch pedal (manual transmissions) or a signal from the brake pedal switch via the central electronic module (CEM) (automatic transmissions)
  • Key-in switch.
  • Switch in door handle and lock button on handle .
    If a door handle is pulled outward, a switch closes that wakes up the system and activates the antennas in the handles on the side where the handle has been pulled out. If a valid key is within a radius of approx. 1.5 metres from the handle, the relevant door will open and the vehicle will unlock one or several doors. Which doors are unlocked depends on the settings for the system. The vehicle can also be unlocked if the handle is affected on the tailgate.

    Hello, I have a 94 Toyota Camry. I accident lock my driver back seat door lock as child lock n I can't fix it. Not only that, the handle us broken. How can I unlock the child lock n how to replace the door...


    Child lock switch controls are on the driver side door. If you use this controlling switch to unlock the doors and all doors open except for one door. It might be the switch on the driver side door or broken wiring in that switch leading to the door that does not open. You need a mechanics manual to trace the switch or wiring. Your best bet is to take it to a mechanic or a body shop if you find this difficult to do.

    Scion xa driverside door switch wont unlock 2006


    That's in all prob the switch itself. If you can, open the switch panel & test if you have power & ground w/ a test lt as U move the switch back & forth, if OK, U need a switch. if no power or a bad ground-electrical short. sounds like a switch or the connection. Good luck Frank M (if elec short & U cant handle it, take it in.

    Battery is DEAD on 2003 Ford Escape! Door key (using an actual key) unlock is also motorized, which needs battery juice. I can't get into this car! I thought about putting jumper cables on the sta


    Open the door manually with the key!

    Many Ford Escapes have power door locks as standard equipment. This system consists of a lock switch, lock actuator and wiring harness. When you depress the lock switch, it sends an electronic signal through the harness to the actuator. The actuator moves an internal piston that either pulls the actuator hook down or pushes it up. The actuator hook connects to the lock rod, which either locks or unlocks the door, depending on which way you push the lock button. While this system won't work with a dead battery, the mechanical lock system remains unaffected by electrical power loss.

    Insert the door lock key into the driver's door lock.
    Turn the key counterclockwise one quarter turn.
    Pull the door handle up until the Escape's door opens. Once the driver door is open, simply open the remaining doors by pulling the interior door handles until the doors open.

    1998 Taurus SE warning chime beeps as you get in the driver door


    Hi John,

    Had a similar problem with my Saturn. Door chime going all the time, the seat belts going up - down - up for no apparent reason.

    Turned out to be the switch in the door jamb had become unseated. As it randomly made and broke contact, the cars computer thought the doors were opening and closing, then acted accordingly.

    I remounted it with the help of a hot glue gun (plastic mount).

    Hope this info helps with your problem.

    Best regards

    Driver's side door won't open in the cold


    .
    Power Door Lock Operation (Front Doors)
    The front doors do not have traditional door lock actuators. They have electronically controlled door latches that will operate depending on the status of the door lock system. This status is determined by the front door modules and the last known state of the lock system. If the last known state is LOCK, the latches will not release when the door handles are operated. If the last known state is UNLOCK, the latches will release when the door handles are operated. The front doors are also equipped with red door lock status indicators. The front door modules will supply power and ground to the indicators to illuminate them when the lock system is in a virtual state of lock. The indicators will not continuously illuminate when the vehicle is locked. They will illuminate for approximately 5 seconds after a lock switch activation or after a door handle has been operated and the front door modules are in a virtual state of lock. For further information on the front door latches, refer to Power Door Latch Description and Operation .
    I would assume they check for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes ?
    DTC B3062 Front Door Key Lock Switch Circuit
    • DTC B3067 Front Door Key Unlock Switch Circuit
    DTC B3849 Exterior Door Handle Switch Circuit
    The left front exterior door handle and right front exterior door handle switch signal circuits provide inputs to the driver door module (DDM) and passenger door module (PDM) when an exterior door handle switch is activated. These inputs allow the door module to detect a door open request. The door modules provide voltage to the door handle switches. If the door module detects that a ground is applied for greater than 30 seconds continuously, a DTC is set and the door module will ignore the door handle switch input.

    sounds like the drivers side key switch has failed remove the interior door panel and there will be a switch attached to the back of the key lock cylinder or around there it should be two or three wires also check the door jamb wire harness where the door closes for any broken or damaged wires, use a vot meter and see if you get power or ground to the opposite side of the switch when you use the key to lock and unlock the door if nothing changes and there is power or ground! at this switch i would replace it, i don't think there is one but if the car has a passenger side key hole try to unlock the car from that side and see if you get the same problem -jeff
