Rea door latch

My passenger side rear door won't latch. It has been cold here lately and wondering if I use WD40 and heat up the area would that work. Im not sure if there is a spring in the latch is broken or not. Any suggestions will help. Thank you.

If you heat that area, only use a blow drier! IT might be from hard grease due to cold.

SOURCE: 1999 cadillac Deville cold air blowing out passenger side vents

Sounds like a Blend door issue, but could be the controller switch, Test ALL modes of operation to see what works and what does not. That should narrow it down a bit. The Blend doors are flap/ doors that regulate air flow, newer vehicles are plastic - electric assemblies ...prone to failure. Any clicking or thumping noises during switching modes and on-off suggest a bad Blend door. Hope that helps...good luck

SOURCE: Cold AC but weak Airflow---Also Driver side not as cold as passenger

The air doors are controlled by actuators that on of them or so may need replacing.

SOURCE: My rear driver side door won't stay latched.

Have a close look at the door latch and see if it is in the lock position. If it is, pull the door handle like your going to open the door and place a screw driver or a pen in the latch and pull it open and then try to close the door and see if the latch holds the door close. The chances are good since most GM products are interchange able, the salvage Yard should answer that for you and can tell you better short cuts then any body on how to replace parts. Good luck and hope this helps, keep me posted. Be glad to help.

Check operation of passenger side air direction deflector vane in the heater ducting.
You may have a seized vane hinge or faulty actuating servo/control.

Testimonial: "thanks, after checking further it seems to be the temp actuator is not working."

How can u align chevy extra cab rear door?


First, with the door almost tight; spray the inside area with wd40 to coat the painted area then, use a test spray paint color to see if the paint will stick to the wd40 and the wipe off, if it does you will be able to close the door and open the front door with the rear door closed and spray the hinge area with a paint to make your marker then use a jack with cloth at the bottom to protect the new door to aid in tightening and realingning

Rear blower: only works on high when set on cold, won't work at all when set to heat


I would start with the rear blower motor resistor, the resistor is what controls the speed of the fan, the resistor is located in the rear heater box near the blower, you will need to remove the right rear side panel to access the heater box. start with that

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.

1. Problem noticed a couple of years ago - When it gets cold (40F or below), my passenger side door cannot be opened from inside or outside. The door lever just moves but doesn't seem to...


BMW and Mercedes had the same problem. They changed the type of grease used to assemble the door latch mechanism.

WD40 Squirted into the lock area often does the trick.

Roll down the window and aim nozzle/straw at interior latch mechanism.

Put WD40 straw into key hole and squirt .

Door ajar


If spraying WD40 into the latch didn't fix it then it has to be a bad switch or wiring to the switch.
You will have to pull door panel/s to access them and check them from here.I would probably start at drivers door since it usually has the most use.
Pull panel and look at the latch and you will see a 2 wire connector to it drivers side wire will be LG/YE and BK,passenger door is PK/LB and BK and if it is a crew cab rear doors are in series right side is GY/OG and BK/WH which this wire feeds the switch in left rear and other wire on drivers side is BK.
Disconnect the connector and see if light goes out. That will be the bad one. then you have to remove the latch to replace the switch.
