check your door bushings in the door hinge these probably need replacing. if you can lift up on door and feel play they are wore out. common issue on these if not you can put a wood block betwwen bottom of door and body and push on top of door to bend it a little to close top tighter

SOURCE: Where is the door contact switch?

Hiya
Check all 4 doors to see what works and doesn't work, be sure the interior domelight switch is set to turn on automatically when any door is open as well try the radio then open the 4 doors to see if it turns off...if your driver's side door don't work as you stated then that should be the door's "at fault".

GM built the door contact switch that's installed INSIDE the door-it's located inside the door striker/jamb area...it require removal of door trim to gain access.

However, you might want to try this visual inspection:
Check the thick wire harness located between the front-left door and door sill frame to see if any wire has been disconnected/cut or tampered with by previous owner.

SOURCE: driver side door does not open from inside my 1999 chevy suburban

Remedy is a new inside door latch. These used to be only available thru Chevy but today NAPA has them too - pricey but what can be done about that? Inside door liner pops off with several plastic rivets designed to release with moderate pressure, a screwdriver helps but can also lead to broken rivets which are almost sure to happen with the gentlest touch anyway. Sometimes there are screws to remove around the armrest area, check from below. There will be a sheet of plastic that needs to be pulled out of the way, do it any way that can be reversed when the time comes for that. Then you'll need to drill out the rivet that holds on the old door latch and drill out that hole in the door and the hole in the new latch to use a small bolt. You'll also need to buy a proper sized bolt. The door latch slides into position in the door proper after the rivet is removed to allow movement of the entire door latch.

Then undo the links. Operational link attachments are tricky but you first swivel them out away from the rod which allows the 90 degree bend in the rod to be removed from the door latch proper.

Step by step not applicable, it's a learn as you go experiance. Different jobs and models have their unique pitfalls, sorry no free pass around those. Do pay attention to you own level of expertise here and hire it done if you don't feel that you can do it after the above discription of the process.

Later on you will need to replace the door latch proper as they are next on the list to fail. This is a slightly more difficult job, but both can be accomplished with stamina and a cool temper. These are also available from NAPA. Inside door handles fail because they are made from pot metal (zinc) which is way too soft but CHEAP. Latches fail mainly due to mis-alignment of doors that hammer out the metal part of the latch. Use a 6 foot 2by4 or other stronger lever and blocks with 2 or three friends to bend the door up so that it closes in alignment with the body if you want to prevent buying a door latch on down the road. Driving with the door open hastens this condition so don't do it.

SOURCE: driver door won't open from inside. 1997 chevy

It could be a defective door latch (opener). In any case, when an attempt is made to open the door it causes a chain of events that will open it. It may become obvious when and after you remove the door cover to see what is exactly wrong and possibly repair it yourself. The latch is attached with links that cause the door to lock and unlock. Good Luck

I was opening my drivers door and the wind opened ... Now it closes but The bottom part is sticking "out" of the car ... And I can't open it all the way ... Cuz the door touches the front...


The wind likely bent your door framing where the hinge attaches. It seems like it is obviously bent downward just a little or it would not fasten. I would first try to adjust it by loosening the hinge bolts a little, not very much and either put something under the door-wooden block maybe then push down on the car or pull up on the door to see if you can align it better, or close the door and push in on the part that is sticking out. You may get lucky. Otherwise I would look for junk yard door.

How do you adjust the drivers door, improper closing, on a 2000 Chevy Silverado 1500?


If it is closing inproperly, open door. Lift up on bottom of door near latch. If there is movement the hinge pins need to be replaced. If there is no up & down movement adjust stiker bar on pillar that door closes onto, either up, down or in or out, depending on how it closes.

I have a 2001 Chevy Suburban 2001. the driver


Usually this problem is solved by opening the driver's door & looking for a broken wire. This wire usually breaks at the flex point of the harness between the door & frame. Carefully slice outer coating revealing hidden wires. The broken one is the culprit. Hope this helps. Good luck!

Removing door panel from a 1997 GMC Suburban


Door panel is attached to door frame on the sides and bottom perimeter with push-in fasteners. There are screws that attach the arm rest/door pull to the frame , and also the panel trim around the door open/close handle.

Locate and remove all screws.

The perimeter of the panel is popped away from the door frame by inserting a flat blade screw driver between the panel and the frame.
There is a trim tool for this that works better than a screw driver. Pretty inexpensive from an auto parts store. Once the sides and bottom are free, the panel is lifted up to disengage it from the top portion of the frame where the panel is attached to the inside of the window trim.

Be careful not to pull or yank the panel too far out because of the wires that are attached to the inside of the panel.

Those plastic fasteners are replaceable, should any break when they are popped out (again, auto parts store carries these).
Hope this helps...

I think the actual frame the hinges are on is bent, you should take it to a body shop to have them re-align it.
