Take a small pry-bar or screwdriver and pry down on the latch on the side of the door and pull up on the door handle at the same time. this will unlock the door so it can now go over the striking pin.

Why doesn't door close?


Check the large stud or pin that is in the door frame, this is called the NADER pin, it may be out of line with the latch. The latch may be sprung also.

Drivers side door will not stay closed locked or unlocked.


Check the latch mechanism on the side of the door away from the hinge. The easiest way I can think of to do this is to push a large bolt (about the same size as the door latch pin on the frame) into the latch mechanism to simulate the door closing action. The latch should close over the bolt and not allow you to pull the bolt out in the door open direction unless you open the door handle.

If the latch works properly, check the door alignment to make sure it is actually engaging the pin.

Your latch mechanism in between door and door frame is stuck. Need re-greasing or a new latch.

Mini one drivers door window


there is most likely a button sensor that is stuck - if you don't open the door much - that will do it - try spraying WD40 on the door components along the door edge where the latch is - also try wd40 on the latch inside the door -- open and close it say 35 times and after 10 or so it should work - but still keep on til 35 - then do that 10 times a month -

Rear door lock is stuck, cannot close door 1993 jeep larado


you probably nee d a new door latch assembly; inside the door, take alot of wd40, lube the door latch were it closes against striker pin, to free the movable part of the latch; push in on the door handle (like your opening the door), at the same time use a pointy screwdriver awl or flat blade scredriver and push the latch up and out of the locked position, its the movable part in the door latch, hopefully its not bent and will not move. also sometimes the door hinges wear out and the latch striker does not line up with the door latch pin, see if they line up if they do not close the door while lifting it at the same time. I hope this helps you

My passenger doors will not latch on


does the door just bounce back open when you shut it? If so then the latch inside of your door should be in the open position. You may need to take a screw driver and lightly pry it back open so that the U shape or Yoke if you will is pointing towards the inside of the car if you were to slowly swing the door shut. That way the striker (located on the car body inside the door frame) will go into this yoke and it will rotate upward as the door latches. Remember to lift the door handle before prying down on the locking mechanism (yoke latch). If your latch is already in the right position slowly close the door and see where the latch and striker are hitting. If it looks like the latch is to low then your door hinge pins and bushings are worn needing replacement. You can usually get this done for about $60.00 from a local body shop.
