Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Clearly there is a problem with the door lock itself. Sorry- service call!

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.

After fwashing, I tried to open the door. Unfortunately I broke the door handle. Now I hope to open it, and get the washed clothes out. But I can not open the door.


no easy way to open
disconnect from mains
take top off. feel down the front to where the door lock is and see if you can feel the door peg sticking thro the door interlock. force this with your fingers and with luck the door will open
if can't do this way, break handle off and lever peg with a small screwdriver
you can buy a handle kit complete. fitting this is not difficult - split the door and all will be revealed advise you make a carefull note of where springs go etc before you start stripping it down or take a few fotos if you have a digicam

The inside and outside door handles will not work on my wifes 1999 honda accord. The lock works but i cannot get the door to open. it feels like the handle isnt catching on anything.


latches are siezed and will require so help to open. try using a rubber mallet and tapping the outside door handle till it seems to have some resistance. you might have to tap alot. once the latch spring is in the right place then lock and unlock car to activate the clips and then pull handle. repeat untill door opens, then take door apart, remove latch and oil till all clips and spring move freely. Now put it all back together and it should work well.
