Hi, the door check on drivers side of my 2003 Vibe is broken and door swings open freely as a result. I went to dealer and price for part#88973010 was over $100, not including labor. Need cheaper fix, any suggestions?

Strangely enough a simple door check does list out at well over $100. $146.62 to be exact. You may want to google a site that sells gm parts at wholesale prices and install it yourself. It should be nothing more then 4 small bolts to replace it.

Check your fuses. Probably a 10 or 15 amp. Most newer cars have 2 fuse boxes....one under or on the side of dash (drivers side) and one under hood.

I have a 2004 Accord and the passenger door swings open and closed very freely. It does not catch even on a level surface and the door will swing closed.


the "door check" is either broken or disconnected, compare it with the left door and check that strap between the hinges.

Check inside wiring by the driver's side door hinge. Remove the rubber boot and you will find broken wires. Make a splice and you are fixed!

Inside door handle 2004 sebring won't work


First off, you'll need to be able to remove the door panel. there are plastic clips (Push in body clips) as well as a couple of screws that hold the panel on. If you do not have power windows, you'll need a tool available from most any parts store to remove the window crank handle. You can get a window crank handle off with a couple of standard screwdrivers (There is a small metal clip that locks the handle on) but this normally results in damage to the panel. When the panel swings freely away from the bottom of the door, gently slide it directly up to remove it.

Once there, you should be able to clearly see the handle assembly, look for a metal rod about 1/4 inch in diameter that is supposed to be attached to the handle assembly via a little plastic clip. if either the clip or the handle assembly is broken, the rod will disconnect and you will be yanking on a handle attached to essentially nothing.

Door rod clips are available through most auto parts stores for $4-5, handle assembly's you can sometimes get through a wrecking yard, or order from the parts store.

Once you have the panel removed
