Question about 1994 Ford Explorer Limited

1 Answer

Driver door won't shut

The door on the driver side will no longer shut properly. It has to be lifted up when shutting and even then it never shuts all the way. Can this be fixed on my own or will it cost me a bundle from a body shop to have repaired?

Replace the door hinge pins or adjust the door whichever will work. You can also adjust the door latch striker a little, but to much and door will not fit correctly in opening.

It is because you didn't open/close the driver side door. Contrary to the RAP system on earlier GM vehicles, the accessory power will stay on until the driver side door, rather than any door.

Interior lights won't shut off


one of your door jamb switches probably needs adjustment because it is not coming into contact with the door; usually the driver's door as that one gets used most often. these switches can be usually adjusted to be longer so it contacts the door again.3_8_2013_5_20_44_pm.png

2006 Lincoln zephyr driver side door wont latch shut


try pulling the door handle a time or two, perhaps the latching mechanism is stuck in the latched position. sometimes pulling the handle and moving the latch with a screwdriver is needed. if this doesn't work then try lifting up on the door while shutting it, if this works then you need new door hinge bushings or new door hinges
