Question about 1993 Mercury Topaz

1 Answer

My one door lock button is stuck down and others simply don't wor

I have the drivers down the door lock button (pole) won't come up so it always looks locked .. **** that car door cannot be locked now. The passengers side door needs to be manually opened. THe back drivers side door can only be unlocked manually. The Passenger back seat door can't be opened at all. It is stuck.

Well replacing the power lock actuator/solenoid help the doors that don't work? Well this also be able to fix the ones where the automatic locks dont work but can be opened and closed manually?

How can I fix the locks so that they are automatic again (as one of them .. the driver back door is).

You may need to remove your door panels (screws are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door) and then peel back the weather film on each door to see what could be causing the issues.. rusted wires, loose connection, broken linkages, seized linkages. I'm not sure what to do with your car since each door seems to be having a different issue, but I would check the locking mechanisms..

Door locks and unlockgo down road


Before you begin to diagnose the problem, make sure you take some time to look over the problem and test out all of your door locks. Also, spend time "listening" to your door locks. Do you hear a buzzing sound? Does the lock sound like it is just getting stuck? Here is a break down of what to look for with different combinations of door lock failure. Four Doors/Multiple Doors Fail to Lock/Unlock If you have multiple doors or if all four doors fail to lock/unlock you could be looking at the worst case scenario - a wiring issue. Before you take it in though, try to change out the fuse and try manually locking the door. Each of these things will help you and/or your mechanic start narrowing down the problem.
A word of caution, if it is an electrical wiring issue, don't consider tackling it on your own unless you have lots of time and patience. These types of repairs can take a lot of time and create quite a bit of stress.
One Door Doesn't Lock/Unlock If you have one door that doesn't lock or unlock, you probably have either an actuator motor issue and/or the door lock is simply getting stuck. Here is how you fix it.
  1. Remove the door panel and look over the locking mechanism.
  2. If the lock is free from obstructions, it could be the actuator. Order a new motor from a Toyota authorized dealer like ours: parts.olathetoyota.com
  3. After you have the replacement part, it is simply a swap and reassemble process. Just make sure you take your time and don't bend anything. Surprisingly, the door locking mechanism can get out of whack quickly if things don't line up quite right. Take your time.
  4. Replace the door panel and pat yourself on the back.
Remote Lock/Unlock Fails, Button on Door Works If you can manually lock your doors or the lock/unlock button works inside the car, yet the key fob won't unlock the doors, you have a simple issue. Simply put, the battery is dead in your key fob. You can either open the key fob (squeeze on the sides) and get a replacement battery from a store. Or, you can bring your car to the dealer and they can replace it quickly and easily.
Power door locks sure are convenient, yet they are incredibly frustrating when they don't work. Hopefully one of these instructions above solved your problem.

Sounds like the door latch is stuck or broken.
There is a gear in the side of the latch that turns when it hits the striker bolt on the door frame.
You can try taking a screwdriver and pushing on the gear to see if it will move. You can look at one of the other doors to see how it is supposed to work.

Hyundai ix35 2012 window lock stuck. passenger window half down and cant get it to move up or down


Before you replace anything, inspect the connector pins in both the driver's door switch and the passenger door switch. If you don't find any problem with these connector pins, replace the driver's door control switch.

97 jetta doors won't lock


I assume the doors can be manually locked. The problem is in the electrical circuit. That means anything from a faulty switch (the lock / Unlock button) to a loose connection. If both switches don't work then look for a blown fuse. If one switch works and the other doesn't than remove the switch and inspect its connection. If it's ok then check the switch. If both switch and connections are OK then you'll have to remove the door panel and access the lock mechanism.

When i lock al my doors on my 2004 Chrysler pacifica from my keychain all doors lock except for the driver door. The alarm is still activated but if someone tries to open the driver door it will open and...


This can happen If you have used the IGN. key to unlock the drivers door after you locked them from the fob. This can also be caused by a stuck button on the drovers door. Check the drivers door all buttons to see if any are stuck. If you do not have any stuck buttons. Try this, from inside the car, with out the car running, use the button on the drivers door to "lock all doors". Then use the fob to unlock them, then get out and press the lock button on the fob twice real quick. This should cause the drivers door to lock as the others. Hope this helps Fix Ya Up.

Easy method to open a stuck Kia Rio door. Full credit to 'fastkia' for explaining how to open a stuck lock but after opening my lock by his method I found an easier way to do the job. You need a piece of straight wire (clothes hanger is good) and make a 3/4 inch square bend on one end. Wind down the window & push a tapered (plastic) wedge between the glass and the inside rubber to get a gap to work through. Poke the wire down beside the glass and pull up on the lever that is operated by the outside door handle. This is not the wire from the door handle but is the lever the wire connects to in the lock. While the lever is held up by your hook you can now pull up the locking button. Remove the wire from the door and everything works and it can be opened and closed as often as you like but don't press the button or use the key lock or it will be stuck again. The lever is normally held up by a small spring that has a sharp bend at one end and the spring will ALWAYS break at this bend. I used the same spring with a 'new' loop made from a section of paper clip to replace the old loop. Better than the original. No cost and it took less than 30 minutes
