2014 Ford Transit Connect XLT-Door Lock Issues

Recommended Posts

Thanks in advance for any input.  Greatly appreciated!

What a nightmare Uhgg. ;)


2014 Ford Transit Connect Passanger XLT Sliding Rear Door Issues. 

I'll try not to be too long winded yet hopefully leaving enough details for suggestions.

  • Initially rear driver side- sliding outside door latch- not working, inside latch did work for opening the door.
  • Child safety lock on the same door was engaged while door was open accidentally, door will now not open either inside or outside. (Thanks Bro! LOL) 
  •  We took off both inside sliding door panels to get a closer look. No remedy as of yet.
  • We disengaged the child safety lock mechanism (Blue fiberglass/plastic type piece) on the passenger side, outside still works fine however inside will not open. We did this so the child safety lock would not engage accidentally again. We were able to to this only because the door was open.
  • The actuators all seem to relay and be working just fine. 


***The child safety lock on these doors located on the back of the sliding door which is locked on the rear drivers side.  Does not seem to be a way to get to it easily.  Any thoughts on how to open?

Any other input or advise?  Thanks again!

The interior door handle is connected to the latch via a cable. Either the cable or latch is broken. Remove the door panel and inspect the handle and cable on the inside.
