    While child lock is engaged, I get a DO code

    If it thinks the door is open only in child lock mode, sounds to me like a bad control.

SOURCE: When drying clothes in my gas dryer, you can smell

Hi, from what you describe, it sounds like you may have incomplete combustion, which would leave a residual odor while burning. Check your vent, on the outside where the flap opens and the exhaust leaves the building. Anything blocking that vent may cause an air flow problem. If you have good air flow when the dryer is running, the problem is going to be at the gas valve/burner and may need a professional. In my town, the gas company will come out and check problems like this for no charge, they don't replace parts but are good at troubleshooting. Best of luck.

Cannot open rear drivers side door from outside or inside. door panel is off, door is closed. child lock is on. tried pulling cable, wont move. tried lifting up the child lock with a thin blade


Sounds like the lock mechanism is stuck on the locked position. Since you didn't specify make and model this is a best guess. Make sure the lock is in the unlock position and try manipulating the rod connected to the outside handle (since child lock is on the inside handle won't work)

child locks are on the back doors only and are underneath the door at the trim edge around seat height. If you cannot open the door from the inside but can from the outside then it has child locks.

How do I unlock child lock on a Samsung electric dryer?


In the owners manual there is directions on how to unlock it, sometimes as simple as just holding down the child lock button for a period of time

My back doors wont open, the child safety locks wont unlock my back doors


Your post is somewhat confusing, BUT with child locks engaged, you can only open the door from the outside, when unlocked.

2002 Lincoln LS Rear door latch does not open have tha panel off tried opening manually mechanism moves but unable to open a child was playing with door lock can you help me to get the door open, would it...


I think the child safety lock is engaged. Look in your owner manual how to disengage. It is near the latch on the edge of the door. Look for the yellow label.

rotate counterclockwise to disengage child lock.

My aunt claims that when her sister accidently set the car alarm lock when she was napping in the car that she was locked in it. She says she could not get out. Does Chevy actually make the 2009 Equinox so...


the only thing i could think of would be the child safety feature but that is usually only for the rear doors. i think she just panicked because the front doors are set up so that if you pull the door lever the lock pops up.

When i push child lock button on my C220, doors automaticly locks and i can not open back doors from inside, but in 6-7 seconds I can open back doors from inside. Why child lock functioning 6-7 seconds?


If you want to keep the child-locks engaged, and doors unopenable from inside, you must set the lever by hand inside the rear door jam of each door. It should be marked, locked/unlocked or on/off. Are there other issues I am not addressing? I hope this was helpful.
