thechink09 i just wanted to let everyone know i finally got the stupid door open! but it was a freaking pain in the @ss!! i had to drop the wind shield so that i could take off the upper doors. and in the process i striped out one of the bolt!!

but after all of that i had to just jiggle the lock rod and it started working again.

so it was a nice day of me yelling and cursing at my jeep :P

thechink09 i give up. ive tried just about everything.... only other thing i can think of is breaking off the door panel.

bc of the upper door i have to break or cut part of the panel to take it off. . .

Snuffy115 Have you tried opening the door from the inside?
I don't know if half doors are like this but my full doors will open locked or not from the inside handle.

Once you get the door of it's one of 2 things. The rod came off or the lever on the key lock is bent.

s3nt3nc3d Sounds to me like the door isn't locked...but rather the rod attached to the door lever has come off or something. If it were still locked, you would be able to unlock it from the outside since your key would manually turn the locking mechanism (unlike the lever).

Unfortunately, that's still not going to help you open your door...

ccain Do what everybody else does when they want to get into a Wrangler (locked or not)...
Slash the window!

Seriously though... The key doesn't work? You may be able to pry the panel off even with the door shut but the seat is gonna be a booger to get by.

i cant unlock my door!!!!

I CANT UNLOCK MY FREAKING DRIVER DOOR!!!! on the inside the lock is in the "unlock" position but my door is still locked. and i cant get it open!

anyone have any ideas on how to get the door open?
i have half doors. if i could get the door open i could get the panel off and fix it. im sure its just the rod is out of place or something easy to fix.
