Car door problems

I was backing up, not thinking, with my door open. A tree was in the way and it stopped the door, the truck kept going and needless to say it bent the door backwards. I was able to bend it back to shut it but its all out of line and its got a huge dent and it only opens about 4-5 inches. what can i do to fix it so it opens correctly, pop the dents out, etc.... i wanna open my door again properly...

Check the hinges force the door open and check the hinge and hinge pins. If those are bent then they will need to be replace. Also besides banging out the door there is not a lot that you can do but take it to a body shop. So I would do the hinge thing first ALOT cheaper

Ignition off,running lights come on

It sounds like the common problem that the driver door switch sensor is defective and the car thinks the door is open all the time. Repeated closing the doors usually turns off the indicator and everything works fine. There is an entire driver door module for the latch and sensor that has to be replaced if this is the case.

It is the zenor diode in the alternator that has gone open circuit and back feeding the ignition, need to have the alternator repaired, may be cheaper just to replace. If you disconnect the thin wire (LT wire) on the back of the alternator it will switch the light off and stop your battery going flat, but that will stop the alternator from charging unless you connect it again when you use the vehicle

Keyless entry will not open passenger door or trunk.

I would replace the remote, this remote is very prone to this type of problem.

The alarm won't stop going off on Acura 2005, what can stop it?

I had a similar problem and the solution was actually very simple. I opened the car manually (with the key not remote control), then locked it manually with the button on the side of the driver's door. I think that reset the alarm and all was good!

Broken door

Unfortunately, door handles are subjected to very large forces, especially when someone who is used to a much harder door to open uses one that only needs a fraction of that force to open. The handle goes straight to its stops and all the rest of the energy has to go somwhere - generally into the plastic lever that is only as thick as a pencil. Are you the first owner from new? As for "having too many problems", I know many people who would swap broken door handles and worn CV joints or split boots with you just so that you can deal with their serious, undiagnosable problems instead! You just have to see some of the questions posed by frustrated car owners on sites such as this to be made aware that you are probably fairly lucky. I tend to be biased though, as my family and I have owned Suzukis since 1985, and we wouldn't have kept going back for more if they wrere really that bad! Good luck.

2004 Toyota Sienna power slide door won't open all the way

The suggested fix above did fix my problem. The problem is that a 2.5" hinged finger that pops up from the floor of the door opening to block the door. Apparently, the finger should, but doesnt go back down after the gas flap is closed. Even after I got hinged finger down (so that the sliding door would open/close all the way), it still would not go back down after the gas flap has been opened. i.e. I have to push the finger back down every time after we fill up with gas. It looks like there is a little wire/spring that should pull the finger back down, but it is off of the finger. I think that replacing this back on the finger should fix the problem permanently.

Have you tried spraying a little silicone spray in the tracks where the window slides just to make its job a little easier?

My car alarm is blinking but the remote doesn't work. I already replaced the battery to the remote so I know that's not the problem. If I open the car the alarm goes off and doesn't allow me to start the...

you can try switching the key to the "on" position then open the hood and disconnect the negative terminal of the battery and reconnect after 2minutes. this will allow the alarm to be '"reset" and will recognize that you have the key for the vehicle.
