SOURCE: 1998 Chev Malibu. Had damage to passenger doors.

I doubt that shop did anythng wrong by just working on the doors.
I would first check and make sure you have a good ground for the sending unit in the tank. I guess it is possible though that the jolt from the accident could have messed up the sending unit.

SOURCE: 2000 Toyota RAV4 side door emblems How do I remove, then replace [higher] RAV4 emblem on side doors to allow fitting of body protection mouldings.

Use an automotive heat gun set to low setting and gently pry the old molding off, then locate an automotive paint/body shop supply store and buy a roll of the special molding double sided tape to put it back on, you will have to buy a whole roll , it will be pricey.

2005 envoy drivers door wont open from inside or outside

Linda, The door latch linkage is probably damaged or fallen off inside the door. Pop into a good body shop and have them check the door lock/latch mechanism for you. The body shop rates tend to be more reasonable then dealership for this type of repair. Links below are just to give you an idea of what may be involved in repair.

The door keeps saying it is open and i replaced the door sensers but its not that can you help

Hello melvin... When the light stays on it usually means a door is open or the switch on a door or liftgate/trunk is bad. If the door adjar button is seperate from the latch assembly I pull the switch from the body and jump it out. Go one by one and you will find the failed switch. If the switches check ok and the connector is jumped and the light is still on then there is an open in the wires for the door ajar switch
Here are more procedures for troubleshooting...

Possible causes are :
1. Door switches stuck in closed position. Remove the rubber cover and loosen the screw holding the door switch. Pull out switch and check if the light stays on....if light remains on, fault is not with switches.

2. Anti-theft system ECU shorted. One of the wire goes to the alarm control unit. Unplug the alarm unit, if equipped and test.

3. Shorted interior dome light. If dome light is not working in the door ajar mode, remove the dome light and unplug the connector. If indicator light does not go off, fault is not with dome light.

4. Shorted Red/White wire. This would be the most difficult to diagnose as the shorting can be anywhere between the door switches to the indicator light. If you had done any wiring repairs prior to this happening, backtrack to check if any part of the wire is exposed and grounding

Good luck...i hope this helps.

All doors are closed and it said a door is still open

It is probably due to a faulty "jab switch" (the button that the door pushes against when the door closes). Purchase one good jab switch and replace one switch at a time to determine which switch needs replacement. During your diagnosing, when everything works properly, leave that switch in place, it has been repaired. Hopefullly, this will help to FixYa problem!

The driver's side outside door handle is loose, toyota celica '95

I assume that the entire handle unit is loose in the body work of the door.
The interior door trim will need to be removed to access the inside of the door to fix the loose handle.

Do not attempt his yourself unless you have some experience in this area.
Take the vehicle to the nearest reputable auto body repair shop and they can easily fix it for you. There could be a breakage on the retaining system on the handle or the retainers may just need tightening.

Typically door handles which have not been subject to damage or abuse will not usually loosen like this. It's possible the door was damaged and the panel repaired and repainted at some stage. If so the door handle may have been removed and refitted in a sloppy manner.

1996 ford windstar interior lights stay on battery goes dead

One of the door "sensors" (Door light switches) are to blame - they are usually mounted in the body, and determine the door is open (door position) to supply the ground to the lighting circuit...You can either locate and replace the faulty one, (unplugging each from the back-side removes them individually from circuit)--(Remember to shut all doors, then open one door and remove the connector to each switch to eliminate it from the circuit - until the light goes off- when it goes off- you have found yor culprit) or just pop-out the dome light bulb if it is a high miles car that you aren't interested in repairing,,,,but want the battery to stay charged....Hope that helps - the switches are usually about $5 or $6 each I think,,,,so it's just a bit of effort and time.

Car thinks door is open all the time

There is a small switch inside the door area, and it is obviously broken. The switch is usually held in place by 1 screw, and has a wire clip attached to the interior side. If you replace that switch. your issue should cease.

Simply remove the screw that retains that switch, pull it out of the body, remove the wire clip. and install the new switch in reverse.

I hope this information helps you, and I wish you luck on your repair.

Save yourself some money and look for a replacement light on ebay or a junk yard. To remove the light open the back hatch and there should be two bolts or screws holding the light in. Remove those screws and slide the light out (may take a little effort to get out). If the body damage is not too bad call a paintless dent repair specialist and see if they can take care of it for a fraction of the cost a body shop would charge........Good Luck
