Driver door will not close properly>

I am having a problem with a 1989 Dodge Ram Van driver door. It will not seal or close tightly. I have changed the latch mechanism because the old one was worn out but I cannot adjust the door to seal properly? How would you go about solving this problem? Thanks John

These things can be a pain, cause I have one... Have you adjusted the striker mechanism? Your adjustments are basically the striker and the door hinges. It is possible that you have worn door hinge pin(s). You may need to adjust the hinges. Rick

The driver side door on my 1997 dodge ram will shut but wont latch how do i fix that


Most likely seized ... soak it in penetrating oil and work it back and forth with a screw driver that will fit the latch. Also make sure the outer door handle is returning to the closed position as they are prone to seizure as well.

I have a 1985 Dodge Van 1000 3/4 ton Van both of my windows are not working and all my fuses are good what might be the problem?


Either the master window switch on the drivers side door is faulty, or there is a broken wire(s) most likey at the wire connector to the master window switch, or a broken wire inside of the weather boot that runs between the driver side door and the body of the vehicle. If you find any broken wires they should be soldered back together well, and do not use wire connectors.

A wire without a match.


Some of these truck came with electric mirrors and some didnt.get them. However the manufacturer may have used the same wiring harness for both unequally equipped trucks. You may have an extra set of wires in the door panel that go no where depending on the installed options. When you have the wire in your hand make a cirular path with it at the tip pulling tight , the connection is inside the circle. Mfgrs only give you just enough wire to connect it.

Adjusting sliding door closure on 2005 dodge caravan


The seals allways let some in, I just looked and mine has 4 3 or 4 mm holes to the rear emptying into the rocker panel. If you are worried about the lower rubber do a pinch test with some A4 paper, close the door with a sheet of paper held where the seal is and when the door is closed see if it is held, check somewhere you can see better to find how hard it pinches. I do not reccomend adjusting anything as if the lines are correct it must be right and they are none to easy to put right, I hope this solves it for you.
