Door handle help

Door.jpg
I have an issue that is baffling me. Passenger door handle works good. But occasionally after driving a bit, the handle acts like it is locked. Can't move it from the inside or the outside. Can't convince the wife to climb out the window, she wants to slide across the seat and use my door!

By the time I get home to check it out, the door handle is working again. I am guessing the lock assembly (assuming it has one) is dropping into the locked position, but I am not sure. I thought before I try to tear into the unknown, I would see if any of you IHC experts had a simple cause and fix.

I have the ignition key that came with the truck, still functional in the switch. I will pull it out and check it on the doors.

Never had that problem. I guess the immediate solution would be the wife drive and you crawl out the window :mrgreen:

Oh, Windigo69, that's just wrong! Or I could take the dog instead. He doesn't care about the door latch!

Ignition key doesn't work in the door. A key I got from a parts vehicle fits in, but won't turn. I see the passengers side has a key lock, but not the drivers. Why is that?

Re: Door handle help

The traffic laws in Canada and the USA required passengers to exit to the curb which was most often on the passenger side. All of my IHC doors are keyed on the right side only. Left door locking is not available. There were three or more outside suppliers of door latch and locks to IHC, with a Ford owned company being one of them. I posted pictures and some minor description of this situation. Use the forum search to find it.
