2006 Marquis, when pull rear door handle it activates child

Customer Question

2006 Marquis, when pull rear door handle it activates child safety lock, pull several times and the lock button moves down. Did as much as I can WD 40 and working it,but as you pull the interior lever the lock goes down and the child safety lock goes up. Tried blocking the safety lock, but still engages the door lock more with each pull.

Hello, it sounds like an issue with the latch mechanism itself,the child lock is part of the latch on the door. Remove the door panel and make sure nothing in interfering with the door linkage for the latch.If this looks ok then you would need to replace the door latch mechanism.

Ok, when you pull the door handle you can watch the inside of the door latch itself rise up and engage, can hold it down with a screwdriver, but when not forcing it to stay open, goes back to engaging the locking mechanism. Will see about taling the panel off.

Yup, the child lock is part of the latch, long as nothing is interfering with the mechanism off the latch linkage, it would be an issue with the latch itself
