View Full Version : 2007 side door will not unlock??

03-03-2017, 11:27 AM
Good morning, I have a 2007 Dodge Sprinter 2500 and when I went to unlock the doors this morning the side door will not unlock? I tried it 4 or 5 times with the remote and no luck. So I thought, well I'll just go inside and unlock it manually. No deal! I can't even pull up on the lock knob or pull! It won't budge. Obviously I will have to take the interior panels off of the door to figure out what is going on but I thought it was strange that I can't even pull up on the lock to manually open it?? Any thoughts?

That can happen if the door is not fully *latched*.

When it happens to me (due to too-gentle closure), i go outside and push *hard* on the rear edge of the door, towards the front (not inward).
(i use the side of a 2-by-4 as a way of applying more force on the door's edge than my hand is willing to suffer)

It usually requires only a millimeter or so of motion, then the latch becomes satisfied and operates normally.
