SOURCE: Drivers door / standard cab / log wheel base /

There is no adjustment for these door hinges. With the door open wiggle the door up and down and inspect the door hinges while doing so. I suspect that you will find the upper hinge is bad. These can be had at most junk yards or through a dealer. The dealer depends on if they still support that truck anymore.

My 2000 olds bravada glove box door is stuck open the latch won't let me close it. Even though there is no way to lock it it seems locked! Do I need new latch or can I fix this one?

Your latch might be in the closed position before you even close the door, try using a small screwdriver on the latch while pressing the release button, if it's stuck closed then this will open it to the right position so it will lock closed when you close the door. If this does not work, sometimes the problem is in the striker (the little tab that the lock hits when the door is closed, this usually has 2 small screws holding it in place, you should be able to loosen both screws & adjust the striker forward or backward so the latch will make better contact with it.

Why is the back wheel solid and wont turn

Either the Brake is stuck in locked position. Check if both rear wheels are locked and won't turn.

Or the Wheel bearing is jammed and needs replacement.

Chrysler sebring door lock jammed

The latch may be "tripped".
If you open the other door and look at the latch in the side of the door you may see the difference.
Sometimes you can take a screwdriver and move the wheel in the latch back to "open" position. The wheel turns as the door hits the striker post.

Drivers door latch will not engage door striker. it hits striker but will not stay over center and door closer does not activate

well, look and see if the striker has slipped back, then, look at the latch, it might be engaged if it is, stick a screw driver in it and pull the handle to release it using the screw driver as the striker.

1994 Dodge Dakota Sport Standard Cab Pickup automatic, i have a new battery and when i turn the key everything turns on and you hear a part of the motor but it wont start, what should i look for?

Sometimes when fitting a new battery the terminals are not on really tight. First check that the contact face of the battery terminal cable clamps are bright metal. Clamp securely so that there is no movement between cable and terminal. Next check the condition of the earth return strap from the engine back to the vehicle's frame. Again ensure there is good fresh metal to metal contact and the it is secured firmly. Next check the connection on the starter motor...clean and secure again. If still no joy then it is time to check the starter motor. The most frequent fault in starter motors are worn striker contacts. When the solenoid is engaged is moves the starter motor armature forward to engage with the drive teeth on the edge of the fly wheel. At the point of engagement the electrical contacts of the motor coil core make contact with the copper striker plates. When they become worn then contact is lost. Make a note of the make and model of the starter motor and purchase a striker plate refurb. fit (about $10 from dealer or Autozone etc). disconnect the electrical cables to the solenoid and motor, remove the two securing bolts that hold the motor to the flywheel casing and remove the motor assembly. Undo the motor end retaining bolts and examine the striker plates. Change them one at a time, I say this as it is important that the order of insulation washers and nuts are in the correct order when reassembled - using the un-touched plate as a reference helps in this. Clean, but do not lubricate the interior of the motor - oil only serves to attract grime. Reassemble and reinstall the the motor assembly. Again ensure the electrical supply cables are clean and attached firmly.

Door wont stay shut

The door latch could be closed, in other words, the door thinks it shut into the striker. Take and hold the door handle open, like your trying to open the door, hold the handle out or up and at the same time open the latch, it may be stuck or closed...If that's not it, you may have to re-align the latch to the striker, the striker will come loose with a torx bit. Loosen it up, and move it around and re tighten, it's a trial and error deal, just keep trying different positions until if works right...
