Really sounds like one of 2 possible problems.
First, perhaps the door latch itself is broken, and that is unlikely, except that I am unfamiliar with that particular latch on that particular car.
Second, it sounds like, if you were to take the door panel off, you would find the latch is locked because one of the locking levers is holding the door latch locked.
There or 2 or 3 lever like things that affect the latch.
There is a lever from the outside door lock that goes to the door latch.
There is a lever from the inside locking handle that goes to the door latch, and yet may be one more.
If any of these are "stuck" or broken, they will "hold" the door latch in the locked position.
Be blessed.

Hi what is happening is that your turn off your car and left the wheels turned to one side and specially if your car is parke in a hill what you have to do is to force the steering wheel to the same direction of your wheels this will free up the ignition switch it is going to be hard let me tell you but it will work and this is why your shift don't work once you have the ignition switch free then your shift will work again

With the key in the ignition, tap on the key with something heavy like a pair of pliers, screwdriver etc. It will cause the pin inside the mechanism to drop, and the iginition will turn. Happened to me today, worked like a charm.

How do I unlock & open drivers side door, when key & key fab won't work?


Why won't key work in door? Most likely not used? Spray wd-40 in door lock and insert key moving it back and forth in a sawing motion. This will usually free up a sticky lock and you can then turn it. Most lock out companies use a long metal rod. They will pry back the top of the door where it meets the roof and insert a wedge to hold the door slightly ajar and then insert the rod which has a hook to catch the lock and unlock it. A coat hanger unfolded will usually do the trick with a little patience. If not, the only other way is to disassemble the inner door panel ( usually causing damage ) to get the door open

Inside the door is an electric motor that pulls the door lock down to the locked position, either the rod has come off to the door latch from the door lock motor or the motor has failed. Remove the door panel and check it for power when the button is pressed for the power locks, if it gets power then it is most likely the motor that is the problem.

Driver's door on 1987 MB 190 cannot be locked w/the key


You didn't say if the key allows you to lock/unlock the passanger side door. If not, then your key is going bad. Otherwise, you need to replace the door lock tumbler. This is not to difficult, but takes about 2 - 3 hours to remove the inside panel and doorhandle assembly. Take pictures as you go to remember how to reinstall everything. You have a couple of options: 1. you can swap out the tumbler from the passanger side if it works, 2. you can replace the tumbler with a new one, or 3. you can replace the entire handle with a used one that has a key. With the amout of work into getting to the tumbler, my vote is for a new tumbler and key.

  3. Press and hold the DOOR unlock switch.
  4. While holding the DOOR lock switch in the unlock position, cycle the ignition ON, OFF, ON, OFF.

  7. Repeat the previous step to program up to four transmitters.

  9. Operate the transmitter functions in order to verify correct system operation.
