Let me in!

Hi, I'm new to the forum and a new owner of an '08 Commander Sport with Rocky Mountain package. Love it!! Problem - my passenger door won't open from the outside. I click the unlock button inside and with the FOBIK but it will only open if I pull on the inside handle. It's the only door with that problem. Am I doomed to a visit to a dealership?? Thanks for any help. Previously had a '99 Jeep Wrangler with a small lift, but totalled it on bridge on ice in January. Bent the frame. Was a very sad day, but am loving the Commander!!!

Is the door unlocked and you can't open it from the outside? Or is it not unlocking so you have to open it from inside?

It seems to unlock - sounds like it anyway and the lock button goes up, but the door won't open from the outside.

Ok how about this... if you open the door, then close it, you can't reopen it right away from the outside handle?

And do you feel any resistance in the handle at all?

Could be as simple as the linkage came off.

Do you see the little lock by the window go up and down? Also after you open it from the inside does it open from the outside until you lock it again?

If the door's lock is working then its going to be a problem with the outside handle. The handle has a metal rod attached to it, this is the linkage. The rod runs down to the latch mechanism. As you pull out on the handle, the rod pushes down on the latch and the door pops open. The only thing holding the rod to the handle is a little plastic clip. The clip can either break or can just simply pop off. The clip only costs a couple of dollars but a shop will have to remove the inside door panel to access the linkage. Assuming that the clip is the problem, they will probably charge you an hour of labor, maybe an hour and a half to reattach the linkage.
