Door Won’t Open from the Inside Only: Causes

Several common issues could lead to the interior door handles of a Lincoln MKZ failing to respond. We’ll address the most prevalent ones below.

Child Safety Lock

Modern vehicles include a child safety lock mechanism to prevent accidental door opening. The safety lock is typically positioned near or on the interior door handle and may require pressure to deactivate it.

Start by checking the child safety lock.

Worn or Faulty Inner Door Handle

Worn or broken door handles are a common reason why your car’s doors won’t open from the inside.

Over time, frequent use or mishandling can cause wear and tear or damage to the interior door handle.

When this happens, replacing the door handle might be necessary to ensure the proper functionality of your MKZ’s door.

Lock Actuator

Faulty door lock actuators can also result in the door not opening from the inside.

A door lock actuator is a small motor responsible for electronically locking or unlocking the door. Malfunctions could cause the door to remain locked even when the interior handle is pulled.

In this scenario, inspecting and potentially replacing the door lock actuator is necessary to resolve the issue.

Try This…

While attempting to open the door, manually pull the door lock to the unlock position. If the door opens with the added pressure, it’s an indication that the door lock mechanism or power lock might be failing.

Faulty Door Handle Cable

It’s easy to see the door handle cable (in this case it’s a rod) in this old door.

An additional possible cause for a Lincoln MKZ’s door not opening from the inside is a damaged or disconnected linkage connecting the interior door handle to the latch mechanism.

The linkage consists of rods and clips that enable the door to open when the handle is engaged.

If any part of this linkage is damaged or disconnected, the door will remain shut from the inside. A comprehensive inspection of the linkage components, along with reattachment or replacement of damaged parts, is essential.

Door Lock Mechanism

A malfunctioning door lock mechanism can also hinter the MKZ’s interior door from opening.

The door lock mechanisms encompass the latch, lock cylinder, and other internal components that secure the door when locked.

Faults in any of these components could impede proper door functionality, preventing it from opening from the inside.

Traveled for two winters and is selling

Meet the current owner of the Lincoln MKZ – Dmitry. Before that, he drove Mercedes and Infiniti, so he knows what premium cars are. He sells “em-ka-zet” because he wants to buy a restyled version of the sedan. In general, American luxury has arrived! The car is manufactured at the end of 2014. Currently the mileage is 89 thousand kilometers.

— I bought this Lincoln in January 2018 with a mileage of 42 thousand kilometers. Then it was just brought from the USA, and there were only two MKZs of this generation on sale in the Republic of Belarus. I wanted something that would stand out and be comfortable, so I looked for a Lincoln. The car had some minor details on the body, in particular there was damage to the door on the left side. I did everything and now the car is in perfect condition.

Dmitry likes that Lincoln stands out in the crowd. It’s not every day that you come across a model in Minsk that was sold exclusively in the USA. In New York traffic jams you can get lost in such an “American”, but on Belarusian roads some show “class”. Front-wheel drive does not bother the owner. By the way, the MKZ’s suspension changes stiffness depending on the driving mode.

The entire center console is touchscreen

Multimedia system in a car from Ford. This is SYNC of the penultimate generation. But it’s not just the screen that’s touch-sensitive—in the Lincoln MKZ, in order to emphasize the futuristic and premium feel, they made the entire center console touch-sensitive. It looks harmonious and stylish, and the absence of levers on the tunnel only adds elegance to the interior. Although the lack of a physical volume control unit is rather a minus. Not everyone will like the speaker power level touch strip.

Only the driver’s seat has electric memory (three positions), but the entire interior is trimmed in light leather. The doors have double glass. On the central pillar you can see the numbers for entering the password that opens the doors (America!). The trunk has a release lever, so you won’t be able to transport enemies in the cargo area. The trunk lid, by the way, has a closer. Doors – without.
