Latch may be worn out. If so, you need to replace it. Otherwise, make sure it is well lubricated and that the striker on the pillar is positioned correctly. Make sure that the hinge pins are not worn either or door will mis-align sometimes when closing. As for regualtor, first find one. Changing it is pretty much a take-out, put-in and adjust operation. If regulator is riveted in, drill rivets out and replace with pop rivets or nuts & bolts.

I have a 1999 mustang, the driver side door was fine then all of a sudden would not stay shut. the door latch won't latch. could this be a electrical problem? it has electric locks


probably that the latch is in the first lock position preventing it from locking properly
use a round bladed screw driver , place it under the latch and press the door button and the same time pulling the latch out

Disable seatbelt chimes,will not go off, since driver door been replaced.


Sounds like the door switch is not switching or not connected. Sometimes the switch is external in the door jamb/closing area, sometimes it is part of the door catch. Maybe check if the door light on the dash stays on, also if the interior light works on door setting.

I have a 2001 ford mustang v-6 that the dome light will not go out when the doors are closed and the key is out ?


My 02 Mustang's light was still on because of the door ajar button. Open the door look at the latch. The latch that goes up and down has a door ajar button hiding near this. It can be hidden by a rubber covering on the side of it. Or you can take the door inner door cover off and try to squirt some oil into the door ajar. You can try oiling it and work it back and forth. Also on the the latches sometimes they dip them in plastic. Mine was loose and would not let the door shut properly. So that was another problem with the light being on. I cut off the pieces that were jamming the latch up.

Drivers door wont latch


I would try lube first. Cold weather can cause parts to get stuck.
Normally a door latch will outlast the car, but it could be wearing out.

2006 Lincoln zephyr driver side door wont latch shut


try pulling the door handle a time or two, perhaps the latching mechanism is stuck in the latched position. sometimes pulling the handle and moving the latch with a screwdriver is needed. if this doesn't work then try lifting up on the door while shutting it, if this works then you need new door hinge bushings or new door hinges
