The back right door of my Honda Accord got stuck and will not open. The door is stuck in locked and will not unlock. How can I fix this?
Stupid question: Did someone turn on the child safety latch and you've only tried to open the door from the inside? Outside chance, but I thought I'd mention it. Obviously, if the door is unlocked you can still unlatch it from the outside.
It could be either one of two things: the rod which goes from the lock solenoid to the locking mechanism is broke (or detached); or, the rod which goes from the handle to the latching mechanism is broke (or detached). I would think it probably has to do with the lock rather than the latch.
You can try to see if while someone is hitting the unlock switch if you pull on the door handle it may decide to work. If that doesn't work, your only alternative is to take the inside door panel off of the door. I know that would be a pain if it is closed, but it is about your only alternative. You should be able to remove the bottom of the back seat to gain you more access room.
