The latch striker may be adjusted just a bit too tight. What is happening is that when you attempt to close the door, the air pressure inside the vehicle resists the door closing. That is why opening a window solves the problem. There is no back pressure to fight the door closing. If the latch is adjusted properly, then you just need to put more oomph into closing the door.
If it is closing inproperly, open door. Lift up on bottom of door near latch. If there is movement the hinge pins need to be replaced. If there is no up & down movement adjust stiker bar on pillar that door closes onto, either up, down or in or out, depending on how it closes.
It appears that one of the door operated switches is making contact even though the door is closed. This is indicated by the interior light coming on. It could mean one of the door catches is slightly out of adjustment allowing door to sit slightly away from body. Try checking each door, and at same time observing dome light, for a loose fit by pushing the closed door in, especially the driver's which gets the most use. There should be only a little movement as the sealing rubbers are squeezed a little more. Adjust catch if necessary. If door catches are tight then it may be that the rubber pad attached to the door that pushes on the door switch button has been compressed slightly and is allowing switch to make contact. Check rubber for an indentation and either put some packing behind it or replace.
on the frame of the car you have a catch undo the adjuster screws so that they are pinch tight, but not too tight ,then close the door hard,if you have adjusted it correctly you can then do up the screws tight.keep opening/adjusting till you get it just right.....
If you can grab the end of the door and lift on,and there's movement, what you need is the door hings bushing, most all auto parts sell this as a kit, cost about $6.00, the only adjustment you will have will be at the striker bolt, that the part where the door latch, latches to, to hold the door close, it unscrews and it will have some adjustment, but not much.There not adjustment for door hing.
The seals allways let some in, I just looked and mine has 4 3 or 4 mm holes to the rear emptying into the rocker panel. If you are worried about the lower rubber do a pinch test with some A4 paper, close the door with a sheet of paper held where the seal is and when the door is closed see if it is held, check somewhere you can see better to find how hard it pinches. I do not reccomend adjusting anything as if the lines are correct it must be right and they are none to easy to put right, I hope this solves it for you.
You will have to adjust the door lock catch which is fitted on the body , loosen the two screws and push it a little inwards , close the door after adjsuting and see if it rattles , if so repeat the adjustment.
Please also check the door hinghes of they are ok! Probabely it may have some play if so thn you will have to replace them.
Hope this helps!
Sounds like the door may be out of adjustment. Check first that there nothing is getting in the way of the door closing area such as the seat belt, and that the door seals are in the correct position. If all checks ok there, Then the door striker witch located at the "B" pillar ( body area direct behind door ) needs adjustment. I recommend finding someone with experience doing this as it will require the use of a impact driver to loosen the adjuster But if you have access to this tool then MARKING where the adjuster is before adjustment is a good idea as a starting point of reference. The adjuster need only be slightly loosened to adjust and will move not only in and out but up and down. good luck and have a happy holiday season Kam
