Evening people. Today for no apparent reason, my drivers side rear door wont open. :furious:
Door handle on outside and lever on inside feel perfectly normal. Door not moving an inch, just
as if its locked. Any ideas? 2010 Alfa 159 Ti 1.9 jtdm. :depressed:

My post in 2014 (so keep trying the handle)...

It happened to me but the Child Lock wasn't on.

I had a diificult rear seat passenger and she tried to open the door while travelling. It was just enough to kick off the auto locking and I thought no more of it. But about 2 weeks later the lock failed so I suspect the action burnt out the locking/alarm process.

With mine, I found that the door would open on about the twentieth pull. I think each time it just 'encouraged' it a little until the mechanism could be overcome.

So my advice is to make a coffee and go out to the car and keep trying. Once open, obviously, turn off the child lock.
