Question about 2007 Chevrolet Uplander

1 Answer

Driver door is all messed up

My wife opened the door and the wind took hold of it and it flew open. The door now rubs against the body and has already bent the front quarter panel. The closing latch does not engage very well either. Are there adjustments for the front driverside door? I do not notice any problems on the hinges.

The hinge is possibly sprung where it attaches to the body. If it is welded to the body, a body shop will have to fix it. Sometimes you can shim behind the hinge if it is bolted to the body, but, usually not successful.

You triggered the security system on this model, which is notoriously sensitive, and the security shut down the ignition. Don't push your luck, use the key fob to unlock or you may wind up with a locked down and inoperable Cadillac.

Doors not opening


I have a 2005 Kia Rio. The passenger door would not open (using inside or outside handles). Found out that one of the three bolts holding the door lock became loose just enough that the head of the screw rubbed against locking mechanism. Had to kick the door (from inside) open. It worked. Replaced screw and all is well.

Driver door rubs against fender, will not allow door to open and close properly . Its wear the skirt of the driver door exterior. Truck is a 2007 ss silverado


sounds like one of the door hinges may need to be adjusted or worn enough to either re-align the door or replace a hinge pin providing the fender hasn`t been hit or become mis-adjusted.

My 1999 silverado passenger door will close sometimes but other times it will not shut. then i have to mess with the latch to get it to shut. also the dome light stays on like it doesnt know the doors...


You'll need to replace the door latch assembly. Not very difficult - the door panel has 3-5 screws in it (all hidden so you'll have to find them), once removed the panel will pop of with enough force - just be careful of the electrical connectors for the window and door lock switch. Remove all the rods from the actuator, remove the Torx screws holding it to the door body, and pull it out. Disconnect electrical connector...and reverse above procedure to reinstall.

1990 Honda Accord CB. When I shut the door I locked it at the same time. The door is now stuck locked but the popper is in the unlocked position. So it thinks it is unlocked when it actually isn't. Then...


You'll have to use a screwdriver. Stick it inside the locked latch on the door itself, the hole that holds it closed against the car body, then pry on it while at the same time pulling the door handle up to open it. The lock piece should swing open and your door should close and open normally again.

Rear door won't stay shut


Check the latch mechanism on the door. There is a piece of the latch that closes around the clasp on the door frame. sometimes this closes when the door is open and you can't shut the door. Take a screw driver and flip this latch piece open and close the door.

Interior lights don't come on when door is opened. The switches are set for door. Lights will go on if you turn to on position. Is there something else that needs to be adjusted?


Hello I have a 2008 Ford Escape XLS and I had the same problem I even took it to the dealer to be fix but when I got it back in return it only worked until I got home and stopped working again. So I took it upon myself and took off the screws to the dome light very carefully not to pull any wires I looked at it and examined it. Come to find out that under the switch I noticed one side of the copper connector was slightly burned have no idea how and why it happened. So I took a very small flat head screw driver and rubbed the burned connector that's attached to the complete unit until I saw the burn color come off and did the same thing with the copper piece I saw curled up that is connected to the switch. I only rubbed underneath it because I figure it has to make contact with the other piece i had just rubbed very carefully not to bend or break it. Once I finished rubbing both pieces I pushed down the curled up piece that is attached to the switch: which for some weird reason it was curled up I'm guessing when it burn. I pushed it all the way down until it was making contact with the complete unit. Then I pushed the switch back and forth to make sure I could feel it rubbing/making contact on the bottom copper piece. I opened the door and it worked back to normal now I was really hating being in the dark at night and couldn't find the ignition. Hope this helps everyone.
