Yeah thats a common fault,dealers(stealers)is the best place if you live in the uk....g.s.f or e.c.p do them but the quality suffers a little..remove the door card and window to the top you should then see where to go.dont forget the power plug when you put it back in ......its easy to do believe me ive been there....

Clean and lubricate the door latch and door latch striker with carb clean and then white Lithium spray grease. Protect the paint from any spray as it can damage it or discolor.

I have a 1997 ford thunderbird lx and the other day when i went to close the door when i got out it,it wuldnt shut i slammed it a couple times n it still wouldnt shut i really need help because i cant...


Here's something that might help you. Look at the door theres a little hook that grabs the striker on car, hold the door handle "open" and move the hook to the open position try to close the door. That should solve your problem. Hope that helps you.

My door ajar sign is on and the doors are closed


did you try spraying the door latch and locks with WD 40? I did on my ford expo. I sprayed each and every door, including the hatchback. Then, I opened and closed them several times. Found out the driver rear door was sticking due to dirt.

2001 Buick Century. door/truck light replacement


My Buick does the same thing if a door or thr trunk lid are not completely closed. They look like they are but upon opening them and slamming them shut the problem stops. Possibly there is some play in one of them. I would say try to see if there is any play in the doors. I would get in and close the doors then try to push on them and see if one if them moves. if it does that is probably the culprit. It may need to be adjusted to close tightly.

Door Latch will not engage


It sounds like one of the door handles is not returning alowing the pawl to latch, Lubricate, the latch assembly, making sure you work the inner and outer door handles. Also roll the window all the way down, and look down through the slot to see if you can get some spray lube at the back side of the latch, if so lube again while working the handles. Spray the pivot pionts and sliders on the handles.

Hope this is of some help.

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.
