Try bending it slightly with a screw driver and a needle nose pliers. Worked for me.

Getting door open

Can you remove the trim from around the interior handle? If so do that and actuate the rod manually.

The latch on my drivers side door is stuck in the closed position. How can I get it to open so I can get my door to close. It can't close at all right now.

Does the door latch have a child safety lock feature? Check to make sure it wasn't accidentally activated, preventing the latch from opening.

Broken door locks

Then you'll be needing to remove the inside door panel. There should be a clip on the lock mechanism and a rod attached to it. What I'd do is go down to a u-pull it lot and find a similar model and remove the door panel and see what you're up against. Then you can decide if you want to get into it yourself or have it done by a mechanic or a locksmith, whichever is cheaper. Goog luck.

My door wont open from the inside but will open from the outside

This sounds like it could be one of a couple of things. The rods which attach the door handles to the lock assembly are held in place by plastic clips, these clips break and the rods fall out. You will need to open the door, remove the inner trims and check. If it has, replace the rod back into its slot and put a new clip on it. It may be that someone has tried to force the doors with a slim jim. This can result in the rods being bent or pulled off the lock assembly and can be fixed as above. If this is a rear door, check the child proof setting in case someone has turned it to the safe position. This is located around the lock assembly itself and can only be accessed when the door is open, look on the edge of the door next to the lock for a very small lever and swap it to the other position, then try the door from the inside..

I have a 1998 jeep cherokee and can not open rear (trunk) door It feels like the key is unlocking and locking, but raising the door handle will not let me open the door?????

spray a light lubricating oil into the locking or catch mechanism, you will need to have the door opened already though. WD 40 should work well. I have a 98 cherokee limited and had a similar problem when I purchased it used. It would lock and unlock, but it wouldn't open. To first open it I had to push the handle down while I pulled the latch up.

Have a 86 Olds 98 with power door locks. Driver's side door will not unlock. Other doors are fine. Can't unlock it manually with either the switch or the key. Was getting difficult to unlock with the...

Most likely the solenoid in the driver's door has failed and will have to be relaced. You can check this by removing the door panel to gain access to the soeoid, remove the rod (be careful with the plastic clips), and try the key. If it opens and closes the lock with no resistance, it is the solenoid. Replace it and your done. I hope this helps and good luck.

Driver door wont lock, need help

Probably just needs a good shot of WD 40 or any other lubricant. Spray the catch on the door, and trip it with a screwdriver a few times. If that doesn't work, it may need adjusting or be worn out.

Removing Door Panel for MPV with door Stuck

I just fixed this same problem. It happened to me 3 different times in a month so I got good at it. Before you dive into removing your door try this. Pull the door handle and release it letting it snap back several times. The problem is a half open door latch that won't let the door unlock. Do this as aggressively as you can to attempt to get the latch to return to its original position. Check the door lock between flicks.

Ok, if that didn't work, here is how to remove the door.
1. Remove the screw behind the door latch, you will have to pop the plastic cover off first.
2. Remove the rubber insert in the door handle
3. Remove the screw that is now visible
4. Now remove the window/lock control module, the back is free but the front has a plastic lip so lift the back up and pull towards the back of the van.
5. Remove the clips that attach to the lock and to the window controls (these can be a pain)
5. (Optional) Remove the bracket that held the window/lock control module

At this point your door is basically free, it is only held in place with plastic clips that can be easily forced off. If your door were open you would simple pull the bottom of the door out (hinged at the window) and lift it off. But since we can't pull because the door is closed we have to force it out.

From here it is pretty simple. Move the seat all the way back and tip the seat way back. Lift the door panel straight up. You will be breaking 2 plastic clips from the rear part but once you do it just pulls out. This is not that easy because the space is limited but just keep pulling and force the rear end of the door panel past the b-pillar. Once you do this it is free.

Have fun and try to keep the black gook from getting everywhere.

Oh, to fix the door lock just oil/grease it and manually move the mechanism several times.

sometimes you just have to force the door but first try hitting the machine near the door lock sometimes this helps the door interlock may be stuck in the closed position
