My door locked and won't open

I have a 2001 v6 Tacoma and the other day I got home and went to get out of my truck and I heard a noise come from the inside of the door as if something snapped or something. I have tried unlocking it with my alarm and with my key manually. It will make the noise as if it is unlocking but it won't budge. Any advice is appreciated.

Use some c4 explosives to blow that thing loose. Lol. No dont do that! Like you said something inside the door jam came loose or broke. I would try to get it opened first by a slim jim manual if it doesnt open from the outside or inside. Hopefully you can gey in by the other door. If you get it opened dont close it again because youll be stuck again, first see what is happening. Fixing it will require taking the door panel of and investigating whats the problem. Other members please help this brother out!!

Re: My door locked and won't open

Sounds to me like the mechanical control linkage has broken or disconnected at one or the other end.

You'll need to remove the trim panel to determine exactly what's happened.

(... Assuming you see this 6 months later .... )
