SOURCE: know combination, but cannot open sentry safe 1250

Make sure you are working the dial properly for this type of safe. With the door lever fully counter clockwise, turn the dial clockwise a couple turns to start. It should turn quietly. Then turn the dial counterclockwise (LEFT) to the first number in the combination. Now turn the dial clockwise (RIGHT) a full turn passing the first number again, and additionally clockwise to the second number. Then turn the dial counter clockwise from the second number directly to the third number. Try to open with a sharp movement of the door lever clockwise. If this does not work the first time try adding or subtracting ONE to each number in the combination in case the mechanism is worn. If it still does not work it is time for a drill and a power saw to cut the thing open!

If you know the combination:

1) Turn the dial to the left a few complete rounds, then stop on 1st number.
2) Turning the dial to the right, pass up the 2nd number once, then stop on it on the next round.
3) Turn the dial to the left directly to the 3rd number then stop.

The handle should open now.

2000 vw passat door latch


Sounds like something came loose on inside of door. People who lock there keys in thier car always try to unlock the doors with coat hangers and all kinds of stuff. Sometimes it knocks the clips loose inside the door and causes handle to not open door. Sometime they just wear out. I believe your going to have to take the inside door panel off to fix it..

Rear pontiac grand am door stuck


I have a 2002 pontiac grand am with both power windows and door locks. Everything else works except the lock assembly on the rear driver side rear door latch. I have removed the inside panel , aboth rods are connected. all power is disconnected to that door. I moved both of the rods correctly and the door will slightly open but that is all. How can I get it to release so I can repair or replace the latch and lock if nescessary ? I had the same problem only reversed with the frond door it would not close but after some trying I fixed that problem.

Driver side door latch closed shut with door open. Will not open to engage and allow the door to safely close.


Place a large screwdriver in the Latch (on the end of the door), and while lifting your inside or outside door handle (make sure the door's unlocked), move the screwdriver out until the hook re-opens. If this doesn't work, it sounds like the rods and plastic retainers within the door have come loose, which will entail the removing of the door panel. Should it come to that, then in moving the door openers (both inside and out), you will see which rod fell out of what and just snap it into place. Sometimes this occurs when you need assistance with keys locked in car and a "slim-jim" is used to pop the lock...the slim-jim will knock the door linkages off. If this be the case, contact the Wrecker Service that unlocked your car. For future reference, a good Wrecker driver will always go through the front right passenger door for "lock-outs."

Good Luck,
