I've had a similar issue occasionally;
First, try turning it off and on again.
Then push the door closed with your knee as you pull the release handle.

My door seems to close tighter at the bottom than the top, so I have to push the bottom of the door in fully sometimes to get it to open. I guess some kind of sensor is getting tripped, and keeping the door locked..

I hope this helps!

I have a 1999 kia sportage my driver door is closed an it isn't locked but it will not open for the outside handle or the inside handle what do i do to get it to open can't take panel off


If it's not locked but the handles aren't responding (they feel like they aren't really pulling on anything, no resistance) and the interior lights don't turn on when you pull the handles, you may have no choice but to get into that door panel. It's possible the door opening mechanism attached to the handles has broken, and should be looked at.

I need a diagram of the locking mechanism in my 2001 nissan sentra so that i can use a slim jim to unlock the passenger side door.


I don't have a diagram of the door but if you slip the slim Jim in over the top of the outside door handle it should catch on the latch bar. If you are doing this because the door won't open from the interior handle or the outside handle the problem most likely isn't the lock. The way that handle connects to the release it is held in place with a piece of plastic that breaks fairly easy. If that piece breaks the interior door handle won't activate the unlock function when pulled and you will have a heck of a time getting the door opened so you can get inside the panel to do the repair.

Someone tried to break into my 07 chevy tahoe ltz they ended up breaking the rt rear door handle off ive got the new handle and already have the door panel off and the bolts out ready to replace it but...


{: ) Yes there is a rod. Check if it could have fallen somewhere inside the door. I have for you a diagram, although this is for the driver door, the configuration is much similar. The rear door uses a shorter rod and doesn't have much bends compared to the front doors. If the handle you bought doesn't come with this rod, so is the doorlatch. So the rod will come separate.

Check also from the picture below, and inspect the orange clip for damage. Since it was forcefully opened, it's possible the clip won't grip properly on the threaded edge of the rod.

Driverside inside door won,t open the dr or even unlock the drs handle is pulled to release?


more likely the door handle mechanism is either broken or came undone, the only way to get to it and see what broken or came off is to remove the door cover panel, its not easy job and its time consuming if not mechanical incline although it something fairly simple to fix and repair. you may just have to replace inner door handle if it broken off from the linkage.

Door is stuck


I have had this on both of my front doors. What happens is that the door opening mechanism has rusted on you. It is like if you were holding the inner door handle open. The door won't unlock then, and the key won't go all the way on the outside. I have had to remove my door panels (NOT easy with the door closed...) and lubricate heavily the mechanism. Then the cable for the door handle went back in place.

You might be lucky and be able to get the door open by pushing the handle cable back in and it might release the mechanism, and then you will be able to open the door and remove the panel easily.

I believe that the problem lies with the seal for the window that can channel water to drip directly onto the mechanism. You will see it once the door panel is removed and you take the plastic off.

Try first to unplug the power cable and see if it allow you to open the door. In case it will not help, you have to raise the top of the washer to get to the switch and release it manually (The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame). Good luck
