Front door locks in my 2000 XJ are stuck.

I put an aftermarket CD player in my 2000 XJ, and the install went well, everything works fine. After I was done I realized that my front passenger and driver door locks are stuck in the locked position but the door is not locked and won't lock. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Then I would suppose that you incorrectly re-assembled the lock rods, accidentally bent them, or they are somehow jammed up in the plastic door liner sheet.

What should I do next, obviously I need to take the door panel back off, but then what? Thank you for your responses.

Ideally you would compare your door internals to another door that functions correctly. All I can suggest is that you study how all the mechanisms function and see if you can logically determine the problem. I would guess that the rods that connect to the door handle and lock switch on the plastic door panel are the main cause of the problem.

same thing happened to me in a past install on one of my cars. Like CJ7-Tim said, take it back apart and see if you can figure it out. I had just placed one thing slightly wrong and it was an easy spot. good luck!
