You will need to remove the hatch panel, and release it manually. It is a pain in the **** with the hatch closed, but it can be done.

SOURCE: door won't close/lock

Just had the same issue. The latch, which rotates up and forward, is spring-loaded towards the rear. If 'tripped' to closed position, it cannot rotate back down until it's carrier/hinge slides slightly forward. I bent a sturdy wire into a long 'U', then bent both ends down (~3/8in) and slightly outward to hook over the latch-hinges and pull both sides gently (its plastic) forward, while rotating the latch downward with a small screwdriver. be careful to keep what appears to be a brown plastic button raised, if it pops down from above the latch. Yes, having 4 hands would help, but the 'U' wire can pull from behind the two outer edges with one finger. Once the latch rotates down, release tension on the 'U' wire and extricate it - problem solved.

Door locked and will not unlock and cant shut door


sounds like the door latch mechanism is stuck in the closed position. if you pull on the door handle and use something like a screw driver and pull the latch claws open the door should work. the latch is the part that closes around the door striker plate bolt to keep the door closed. lube the latch to help keep it from sticking again.

use a round bar ( a screw driver ) and place it under the latch and pull the latch out as you press the button to unlock as if you were opening the door.

2000 hyundai sonata passenger door lock stuck in locked position


If your talking about the teeth/latch that actually engage around the pin to hold the door closed and not the lock you puhs down to lock it. all you have to do is get a screwdriver or anything small and strong you can stick in it and pull the tooth back into the "open" position. You might have to pull the handle out like your opening the door normally while you do this.

Two things. 1. the dryer does not shut off when the door is opened. 2. I changed the light bulb, still does not work, and now the door will not fullly close and latch.


your door switch is stuck in the closed position
replace that and you should be ok
as far as closing it may be the switch stopping the door too
