SOURCE: my 2001 acura mdx driver side door won't close

THE DOOR CATCH HAS A DOUBLE "C" THAT HOLDS THE DOOR CLOSED. FIRST TAKE A SCREWDRIVER INSIDE THE "C". USING THE HANDLE ON THE INSIDE, PULL THE HANDLE AS IF YOU WERE OPENING THE DOOR AND AT THE SAME TIME, OPEN THE DOUBLE "C" WITH THE SCREWDRIVER. I HOPE THIS HELPS. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO KEEP ME POSTED. GOOD LUCK

The latch on my drivers side door is stuck in the closed position. How can I get it to open so I can get my door to close. It can't close at all right now.


Does the door latch have a child safety lock feature? Check to make sure it wasn't accidentally activated, preventing the latch from opening.

check if the latch is in the closed position. If it is use a philips screw driver and place it under the latch and pull it put as you press the door handle.

Drivers side door will not stay closed locked or unlocked.


Check the latch mechanism on the side of the door away from the hinge. The easiest way I can think of to do this is to push a large bolt (about the same size as the door latch pin on the frame) into the latch mechanism to simulate the door closing action. The latch should close over the bolt and not allow you to pull the bolt out in the door open direction unless you open the door handle.

If the latch works properly, check the door alignment to make sure it is actually engaging the pin.

Rear door latch 1993 GMC Safari stuck


If you stick a screw driver in the door latch and pull while pulling the door handle to open it should open the latch. Be sure to clean it up and re-grease the latch so it doesn't happen again.

I have an 89' GMC Jimmy and the driver's and passenger door will not close. It won't even pull to. What should I do?


Sounds like the latch is in the closed position. does it bounce back open? Its like a hook latch, pull the door handle to open it and at same time pull the latch out. And it should move out and leave it open for the pin to go into it.

My windstar vans side door on the driver side is stuck in teh lock position. the door is not shut all the way but I can't unlock it. I've tried to pull the lock up but it won't budge. please help


Try to close the door fully by pushing it forward (may require several hands pushing at once) which may reset the lock and latch. If it closes, but still doesn't release the lock, the interior panel must be removed to access the lock and latch directly.

Doors won't close


Manually UNLOCK the door button or slide. HOLDING the OUTSIDE DOOR HANDLE in the OPEN position, with your other hands finger, LIFT OPEN the latch, and close your door. Hope this helps.
