Question about 2006 Cadillac CTS
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.

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

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."
