Interior Door Handle Stopped Working

Recommended Posts


I just joined and am excited to be here!

I have a 2001 LS430 with 165,000 miles . The driver side inside door handle no longer opens the door from the inside. So I have to roll down the window and reach outside to open the driver door. 1) Any suggetsions? 2) Also, anyone know where I can maybe buy this part online if needed? I checked a few sites via Google but no one has it so far? Thanks, Kevin

It could be something as simple as a control rod come off or a broken linkage.

To be sure of the problem you will need to remove the inner door trim panel then you will be able to see what's moving and what's not.

As for parts it may be dealer only.

If you do need a part # post up a picture of what you need and I will search for it.

Just had a look at the exploded diagram and the LS430 uses cable linkages from the door handle to the lock so maybe this has snapped giving you the problem
