Hello and welcome to justanswer.com

 

Which door is not unlocking? Will it unlock if you move the lever on the handle?

Customer reply replied 12 years ago
Both rear doors are not unlocking and are open and will not shut. The level on the door handle will not move
Customer reply replied 12 years ago
The rear door locks are both stuck, although the doors are open. I cannot manipulate anything to open the locks. I can't travel any further with the doors open. Does this clarify any?
Customer reply replied 12 years ago

 

I have tried all your have suggested and your suggestions have not worked. I never received a reply to my first reply to you. What gives?

Customer reply replied 12 years ago
I am still trying to open the doors...please help
Customer reply replied 12 years ago
Still no help...I've tried the key, the child lock key, the screen, the inside and outside handles....it still has the rear door mechanisms locked, with the doors still open..any ideas?
Jaguar Mechanic: Richard, Jaguar Technician replied 12 years ago
I am sorry for the delay as I was having a problem loading your question. So the doors are opened but locked and you cannot move the inside lever? If the child lock is not activated then this is usually a problem with the door latch itself. Here's what I recommend. Try unlocking the doors at the same time have an assistant pull on the lever next to the handle which may release it.
