Sounds like the rod that attaches from the door lock to the handle mechanism may have come off. there is only a small clip that keeps this in place and it mat have broken. or a bushing within the locking mechanism itself may have worn out. I would check the rods first there may be up to 3 of them. 1 goes to locking mechanism near the window (in and out. lock with key and lift button), if electric locks, one may go to locking solenoid and the door release which goes to interior door handle and outside door hangle

If the lock switch is set to unlocked and it will not open from the inside or outside, the door lock arm may have fallen lose. Take the inside door panel off and check around the door levers and door lock.

if the door opens from the outside but not the inside then check that the door does not have a child lock

when you lock a car door it can not be opened from the outside, ( unless it is picked ), when you double lock it you can not open the door from the inside in the event of someone breaking a window to gain entry.

You would need to pry the door panel off and then play with the door lock and handle rods from the inside.

If the door on a 1993 Corsica opens from the inside and not the outside, one issue is likely the problem. The linkage connecting the outside door handle is disconnected or broken. It is also possible that the door lock is faulty.

If the door on a Hyundai Gl will not open from the inside, the child safety lock mechanism should be checked. The lock mechanism is found inside the door jab underneath a label that says 'child lock'.

the linkages to either the handles or the lock or both has come off. here's the kicker... you need to open the door to take of the inside door pannel to fix it. try to remove the pannel with the door closed. or a "skilled" vheicle locksmith could open it from the outside...but it's not cheap.

Open door from outside and then de-activate child proof door lock button on the edge of door. You will then be able to open the slider from the inside.

The lock on the top of the drivers door acts as the power lock switch for the crv, open (up) and close (down) while in the car. To lock all doors from outside the car hold open inside door handle and push down lock on top of door. All doors should lock. Close door.

ideaswill it open from the outside and not the inside if so then it's a child safety lock located on the door jam near the latch if not you could have any of the following broken lock, door latch or the latch is just stuck.

Go in from another door and open it from the inside.

Remove the door panel, find and repair the lock linkgage.

User Avatar

Did you check the door latch/lock. The latch part might be broken on the inside. If you have the door already open it is easy to chisel out the old door latch inside of the door.

User Avatar

The problem is that the inside door handle is broken. Although the inside door handle needs replacement you can still open the door by pulling on the lock lever above the handle.

pick ur nose! Or open the drivers door manually with the key. If it will not open maybe your door lock mechinism is broken

door open from inside or outside

You have too remove the outside door skin, there are torx head bolts all the way around the inside of the door. Once its removed you will be able to see the lock solenoid.

User Avatar

You can put a locking hasp lock on the door and the door frame that you engage when you are inside. Or block the door with heavy furniture, but if it is your only exit, it would not be safe. The easiest thing would be to buy and install a metal storm/security door on the outside, making sure that the hinges are not accessible at the outside of the house.

Sounds stupid , but push door closed from outside , then operate rear lock from inside to LOCK door then pull to unlock , I have had this problem when people have pulled outside handle as central locking is still bimbling along . Result one door that does not open using either handle nor does it lock / unlock with key / alarm / central lcoking system :)

User Avatar

try and remove the door panel, you may be able to just pull back enough of the panel to manually open the door, they you can remove the rest and replace the bad parts.

If the door won't open from the outside when you press the handle, you need to take apart the interior part of the door and the mechanism. There is a barrel that slides in a groove that has jumped out causing the door to not open from the outside. If you have auto locks they will not work either. Only opening the door from the inside will work since that pushed the lock from another position. Hope that helps.

Try checking for a child lock. If it's on, it'll keep the door from being able to be opened from the inside. Happens in our car all the time.
