Question about 2004 Ford Taurus
Now that it's freezing outside, I'm having problems with the driver's side door. I can open the door from the outside and inside, but when I try to shut the door, it bounces, and won't latch. Sometimes pushing the lock button up and down repeatedly will help, but I don't want to have to do that all the time all winter. What can I do to make sure the door will shut and latch?
Saturate latch(best you can) with wd40 after cleaning.Clean with starting fluid then lube with wd 40

SOURCE: Door latch frozen open
My 2000 Sable does it evey winter - all 4 doors. I have found spraying WD 40 into the latch on the door works quickly to allow you to close the door.
