    I was messing around with the door latch (?) so I can keep my truck door open and inside cab lights off, but now I don’t know how to unlock the door latch.

    This is on a 2014 Freightliner Cascadia.

    Pull the door handle. That's just the latch position.

    Stick a screwdriver in the latch and pull the door handle to release and it should pop open.

    Don't worry. You're far from the first to miss something simple.
