I had this problem too and it turned out the piece that the door handle attaches to broke. i glued and taped up mine and it works fine now. its worth a look if the WD40 thing doesn't work.

First thing to try is lots of penetrating spray at latch assy. Up down all around on any angle you can get it in there with the little red tube attached to spray can, WD-40 will work. Keep working your handle(s) locks etc while your doing it, it may take a little while if it's seized or rusted. Once it's working again (hopefully) spray with white lithium grease or similar to keep it lubricated, and don't forget your other latches also.

Response to 1995 Jetta door that won't latch. If you have a power door lock system connected with your alarm; (locking driver door locks all doors and turns on alarm), it will cost a minimum of $400.00 to replace the power door lock module (includes labor). My sister had the driver side replaced four years ago. The passenger door side went out about a month ago.

I have a 2010 f150 the dome lights will not shut off ever


Dome lamps operate from door latches. Most common problem is drivers door latch switch. The switch is built into the latch assembly and is accessed by removing door panel. Try spraying WD 40 into latch assembly and opening/closing door several times to see if this corrects the problem. If a 2 door with side opening doors to rear, possible broken wiring to the swing door where it meets the body

Driver side door won't open


If the door handles feel like they have resistance but don't open the door I would suspect a seized door latch.

GMC Envoy 2004 XUV tailgate won't latch closed. Pressure switch makes latch click but when I go to close it, it does not latch.


Two things happen. One the latch is already latched and therefore it's closed before the gate shut, When you try to close it you might notice that the door don't close all the way. This doe'snt have to be thwe case. the other thing that happens if the lock mechanism is working, You here it click? The latch is stuck as the opener is stuck. You might get lucky and spray the latch with Blaster or other rust buster type penatrant. Theres angles though the opening of the latch . Spray on several angles and repleatly close the door trying to vibrate the Penatrant into the stuck area. Looking at the latch use a screw driver to move the latch and see if you can cycle it though it's positions to see if you can latch and unlatch it with the tool and reopen by pullung the handle ( you may need to try ther inside handle too and even the remote openner if you have one. Ussaaaly you need to push the button twice to open the rear hatch so it may take a few trys and spraying to get it to come loose.. Some vehicals stay closed a long time and stuck is the way to think.. But if the door is used often the linkage inside the door mayh have come off the the latch is closed and the linkage doesn't open the laTCH AND THE THING MANAGED TO GET CLOSED WITHT THE DOOR OPEN.

The drivers side door on my cherokee won't stay closed, needless to say driving and holding it for fear of it swinging open is not fun... where can i buy a new closer mechanism... cant seem to find one...


You can order new from dealer or find one in any scrapyard. Often if a door is dented or rusted they will allow you to remove items usually sold with the door.
Have you tried adjusting the striker post to get the latch to close properly?

Driver side door on 1995 chevy express van will not shut


Chances are the door latch has closed without the door being closed.

Inspect the latch mechanism on the door. I suspect you will find that the latch is in the closed position.

Use a screw driver to take place of the normal jam pin in the latch apply tension ( like the tension that would be present normally opening the door) and actuate the door handle.

Make sure to lubricate once you do get the latch to open.

All power door locks lock except the driver side front door


On my jetta, if you don't lock the doors with the remote then all doors lock except the drivers door. try this
1. closing all doors walk around to the passenger door.
2.open the door, using the button on the passenger door, lock the doors.

I had this happen to me on my jetta and found you could lock all the doors if you did'nt use the drivers door or you locked using the remote. They did this to keep the driver from locking the keys in the car. I hope this worked for you
