Very common problem with blazers. the iside rod that goes from handle to latch is attached by weak plastic that commonly break. Remove door panel by prying off after all screws are removed and personally look at the rods.

the 1999 suburban interior door handles are plastic you cannot adjust them, only if they have came of the screws, usualy replacing them is the only solution... remove the small plactic cover behind the door handle and check to see if you have any broken parts on the handle you will notice if there is if you see like a whitish strecht mark on your beige or grey handle

Broken door


Unfortunately, door handles are subjected to very large forces, especially when someone who is used to a much harder door to open uses one that only needs a fraction of that force to open. The handle goes straight to its stops and all the rest of the energy has to go somwhere - generally into the plastic lever that is only as thick as a pencil. Are you the first owner from new? As for "having too many problems", I know many people who would swap broken door handles and worn CV joints or split boots with you just so that you can deal with their serious, undiagnosable problems instead! You just have to see some of the questions posed by frustrated car owners on sites such as this to be made aware that you are probably fairly lucky. I tend to be biased though, as my family and I have owned Suzukis since 1985, and we wouldn't have kept going back for more if they wrere really that bad! Good luck.

Back door is not unlatching


THERE ARE PLASTIC CLIPS THAT HOLD THINGS IN PLACE BEHIND THE DOOR PANEL. IF YOU PULL ON THE HANDLE AND THE DOOR WON'T OPEN TRY FROM THE INSIDE IF IT OPENS FROM THE INSIDE THERE IS A CLIP THAT HOLDS LITTLE RODS IN PLACE FOR THE LATCH TO WORK

Door handles (exterior)


This won't solve the problem once the latch is broken, but can help keep you from breaking your door latch on cold frosty days.

Shortly after buying my 99 Park Ave I noticed that the rear door handle on the driver's side was black, instead of painted gold to match the rest of the car. I presume that the previous owner had the problem mentioned above. To avoid breaking the flimsy plastic handles when my doors are frozen shut (which is often during the winter in upstate New York!), I use the remote to unlock the doors, then I open the rear door first. By opening the rear door first you can grab the edge of the door at the wheel well, while pulling gently on the latch. By applying most of the force to the edge of the door at the wheel well you can avoid breaking the door latch.

While the rear door is open you can repeat this process to open the front door, grabbing the edge of the door in the crack created by the open rear door, and lifting gently on the front door handle. (Just make sure the rear door isn't closed in the process or you will crush your fingers!) This approach has worked many times during the last two winters that I have had my Park Ave. Hope it helps others!
