Superlock - Super lock
Okay boys and ghouls, I figured it out. I've scoured the forums for any info on getting this problem solved, but it looks like many people have had this problem, and there have been almost zero posted solutions. I will post mine and hope that it happens someone else in the future.
You have already checked and verified you have good fuses.
You're actuators are not fried. If they are bad, this won't work.
You have good battery charge.
- Originally locked out of all doors
- Can only open driver's door from the inside.
- Can't use center dash unlock/lock button. When I hit 'unlock' it makes a tiny 'tic' noise near the fuse box. When I hit 'lock' all the locks sound like they are attempting to lock.
- Can't unlock any other door using the inside handle.
- How do you get into the car if all the doors are locked and the windows are up? I was able to pry the window frame open and after several tries I managed to wrap a lasso around the driver's door handle and pull it open. Sounds impossible, and at times it felt like it...however, I managed to do it and I'm sure you can too!
- Now that you're inside you realize you can't unlock any of the other doors...now what?! At first I thought I had a bad actuator, but in reality I had a broken tumbler pin.
- Take the door handle off...very simple task. You have to unclip the plunger that actuates when you pull the handle. Then you need to remove the ONE torx bolt/screw on the door. Then the handle will push out, use some elbow grease and it will come out with ease.
- Now, when you look into the door handle from the outside, you will see a white 'crosshair'. This is where your broken pin should be seated and allows you to lock/unlock the car.
- Take a big flathead and twist the white crosshair counterclockwise twice in a rapid manner. You have either just superlocked your Rover, or taken it out of superlock. Twist one time to the right and see if you can unlock all your doors.
You MAY be able to jump the wires from the actuator cable to get this to work if you have a bad driver's door actuator. I was not quick enough to get it out of superlock with this method, but I believe it is possible with the right tools. I will find out the exact prong numbers I used to jump if desired.
Let me know if you have any questions or comments.
