Interior door handle repair issue

Dear all,

I just recently bought a 2005 Grand Cherokee and I'm all new to Jeep and working on cars :-) I love it, but it is all still a challenge for me.

The rear passenger interior door handle was broken and I got a replacement and was able to mount this. However, now I'm absolutely puzzled about one issue: shouldn't you be able to pull the handle twice to open the back door when the door is locked (once to unlock and once to open)? Unfortunately, I had to open the other rear side door to figure out how to put it back together, so I cannot verify this myself. I thought I remembered I was able to open the locked door like this, but it doesn't work anymore. Unlocking with the remote works, unlocking with the knob works, just not by pulling the handle. I looked inside the door and couldn't see any issue. If I should be able to unlock with the handle, where could the issue be?


Thanks

Alex

My 2005 will not unlock the doors by pulling on the handle in the rear. It sounds like yours is working as it should.
