    Thank you so much. No offense taken either. I am a single mom who knows nothing about automotive repair. I can change the oil and tires and know where all the different fluids go but thats about it. Fortunately I am the type if you give me a book with pictures and instructions, I can do almost anything.

    Should I get the part I need from a salvage yard or buy new, or does it really make a difference? You may not know but about how much should I expect to pay for the part I need?

Totally agree get your lock mechanism from the salvage yard, most of them have door and glass men there that will install part for a very nominal fee

hope 2 help shack

Ok what you will need for the door alignment problem is a "door pin" this is a pin that goes in between the door hinges much like a door pin that would be in your home. That will solve the alignment problem. Either new door pins or adjusting the pins with a pair of pliers. As far as the locking assembly you will have to take the inside panel off the door and find your way around the inside and try to see how to disconnect the unit. No offense at all but it sounds like you may not be to savvy to do this because the locking mechanism is a difficult part because of the moving parts and such. I would suggest going to ebay looking for the parts and bringing them to a shop to fix it. its cheaper if you bring the parts. If you are up to it. Purchase yourself a Haynes or similar manuel for 20 bucks and it will contain pictures and diagrams of everything you need to do. Good luck and take your time fixing it.

What would cause the gages to not work

Sometimes a cracked printed circuit board that the gauges are part of is the problem, a good mechanic can find and solder the broken foil, or replace it with one from a junk yard. I've had this happen on a couple of caravans. Hope this helps.

Does your van have seperate controls for driver and passenger temperature settings? If so the most likely cause is a broken actuator or broken passenger blend door. Unfortunately, the only way to repair a broken blend door is to remove the dash and the HVAC assembly.

My drivers side door doesn't close all the way because the lock in the door only latches about half way..It will stay closed going down the road,, BUT it's not latched or closed tight.

sounds like the latch is broken or the latch catch is out of alignment. you can try and spray some teflon or silicone based lube on the latch and see if it is just sticking -- some lube goes along way on moving parts. also make sure the door is lining up proper and not hitting anywhere on the frame.
but I would try the lube first,, and then look into possibly replacing the latch.

Rear driver-side door will not open. Neither outside handle nor inside handle release door. Electric lock does not affect the door as well as manually pulling up or pushing down the door lock.

the rod or latch has miss aligned, it will be a a hole but you have to take door card off and remove actuator to see if broken or bent, if bent you need to free up the door lock
