Sounds like the latch is seized or the tension spring is broke.
You'll probably have to replace the latch.

SOURCE: rear passenger door won't stay closed

Door latch on door itself is in closed position if it will not close at all. In this case, open door and pull outside handle hard to pop open door latch. If you have door opening at random, door latch needs replacing or door catch on body is loose.

SOURCE: the door mechanism is stuck in the closed position and the door won't close

Push in the door button. While pushing in the button, take a screwdriver and pry up on the door mechanism on the end of the door. Should unlock and allow the door to shut again.

Door won't close


Check to see if anything is restricting it from closing inside of the crevice where the wheel travels and locks. Sometimes debris from trees, dirt or rocks can clog it up.

I have a rope stuck in the door latch of a 2009 Kia Rondo, and the door is closed, so won't open from the inside or out. Is it possible to get the door panel off while it's closed? Or slide...


You might be able to get the top part of the cover off but I don't know haw much room there will be to get at the latch. You will have to be careful so as not to damage the cover.

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.

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.
