I doubt the door will open when the car is moving. But the door lock issue is probably the sensor in the door latch.

My door ajar light keeps coming on along with my dome light but all doors are closed. If I open and shut the passanger door it goes off for awhule and then starts again.


Each door has a door ajar switch in the latch. You can either take some WD40 lube each latch opening and shutting each one 4 to 5 times after spraying, or you can replace the switch

Driver side door is frozen open with lock closed. Try to close door and it bounces back. Unlocking with key or with auto-lock does nothing. Key turns, lock button goes up and down, but mechanism does not...


Give the locking "jaws" a good dose of WD-40 and start with a pair of pliers ans working the door handle get the "jaws" moving and work it a lot while keep dousing it with the lubricant. Worst case scenario would be that the spring that opens the jaws is broken and will need replaced. Please rate this answer, thanks.

1989 chevy cavalier - somehow safety door lock engaged and now I can't close the driver door. How do I unlock it?


  1. This is what probably occured
  2. While the door was open the latch on the door was closed
  3. If the spring inside the latch is broken, Working the inner or outer door release handles will not open the latch.
  4. place a screwdriver in the opening of the latch where the door striker would be if the door was closed.
  5. apply pressure to the latch paw while operating door release.
  6. latch should open.
  7. replacement of the latch will keep this from happening again

I have a 2006 TL. When you turn Rt the door light goes on and beeps. Is it a sensor or is something wrong with the door?


check door at first chance after light comes on..If securely closed then it is a faulty sensor or door switch in door frame contact dealer and find out if there is a defect in sensor or door switch perhaps they may repair it if defect or under warranty

My 2002 town & Country Rear sliding door wont close


You need to change the locking mechanism on the door,not the theft lock that you push down by the window,the lock that keeps thew door shut.I dont know why it wouldnt lock,it must be a factory defect,that worn out before its time..

VW Polo 2001 - Electric Windows wont open from Drivers side..


I removed all 3 switches from driver and passenger door, which is really easy with a flat head screw driver. took them completely apart, very carefully, with a small screwdriver out of a christmas cracker. put them back together again and 2 switches started working, so I put 1 in the drivers side and 1 in the passengers side so now my drivers door window opens and I lean over to open the passenger door. cool, no money spent...yet ;o)

"Door Ajar" signal on dash panel stays on even when doors are clo


there should be a switch mounted( or more than one) in the door jamb that tells the car when the car door is open...i will probably look like a little plastic plunger...might be broken off or bad internally
