I am sorry no one could help you earlier.

CAT doors use the same key as the ignition switch and all use the same key. Just locate another key and you can unlock the door.

The doors must be placed in the locked position manually. A few did have an inside lever to lock the door but, most had to use the key to lock it.

Many doors are just very tight to release. Try pushing in on the door when working the handle, this may help release the pressure to the linkages.

If you need more help on this, please post the full machine serial number with your reply.
