Question about Cars & Trucks
Problem is with door Latch assembly. The catch is aligned well, and is lubricated properly. However, when the door is closed, the claw will rotate, and move around striker, but will not "catch" or stay closed. Currently zip ties are holding the door shut, and dome lights are disabled. PLEASE HELP??
Check child safety mechanism as well because that might be stopping from locking.

SOURCE: REAR DOOR LOCK
you either have a faulty central locking motor or the wiring harness may be damaged.
Remove the door panel and check if you have a live feed to the central locking motor when you use the fob to lock or unlock. If you have power, then it will most likely be the motor that is at fault.

Sparay lock assy with lubricant, and look where release cable attaches to lock assy, and push/pry it one way or the other to get it to move, opposite of where it is. Lube cable too.

Make sure it is not binding/sticking where you pull the release cable.
Drench the entire works in WD-40. Push it back and forth until it moves with no resistance.
Make sure the part that hooks onto the latch hasn't come loose enough to not slide over when it makes contact.
If that doesn't work, take the whole thing off. You'll have to anyway to replace it. Chances are with it disassembled you'll see what's wrong.
