1999 mercury villager door won't latch closed

When I pull the driver-side door closed, the latch mechanism does not hold the door latched. Electric lock operates, but the door still does not latch.

SOURCE: driver sode door lock

The locking solenoid may need to be replaced, or the rod adjusted.
You will need to remove the door panel to watch the movement.
If the solenoid is not fully extending, it will require replacement.
It will look similar to this...

In the picture below, it will be #4

If the actuator does not fully extend, it will need to be replaced.

SOURCE: Door latch frozen open

My 2000 Sable does it evey winter - all 4 doors. I have found spraying WD 40 into the latch on the door works quickly to allow you to close the door.

SOURCE: Power door lock, driver side only, does not work in my '95 Sable

if you here a noise that should mean the little motor (door lock actuator) thar works the door lock is getting power to it and it should be ok. sounds like when you changed the inside latch you must have disturbrd/disconnected the linkage or the clip that connects the lock actuator to the latch assembly(the female V-SHAPED mechanism that engages the POST/STRIKER (male part) its a little hard to name these parts so i am describing them to you. look insidethe door and see if you see any threaded RODS OR LINKAGES that are not connected at both ends.the noise youre hearing is most likely the door lock actuator "spinning"up and down but its unable to lock or unlock the door latch mechanism.

SOURCE: My Electric door locks will not accuate on my 2001 Mercury Sable

if they work from the car door then you will need to have your remote battery checked, if it doesnt work from the car door then chances are there is a lose wire or connection. Also sometimes the knob can get bent and miss aligned. Simple checks are can you hear the the lock trying to lock when you push the button? Do you have two remotes, have you tried the second one?

Drivers door wont latch


I would try lube first. Cold weather can cause parts to get stuck.
Normally a door latch will outlast the car, but it could be wearing out.

1999 mercury villager interior light won't go off.


If the door adjar light is on than you have a bad door switch. They are part of the door latch assembly. It is more common for the drivers side to go bad but it could be anny of them. A scan tool would be helpful in narrowing down which one it is. What you can try is spraying carb or brake cleaner into the part of the door that holds the door shut (the latch). Spray it into every nook and crany in that area. Open and close the door several times will a serving the door adjar light. If it goes out problem solved. If it doesn't go out get it scanned to see which one has failed and then pull that door pannel to inspect. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them.

Drivers side door will not stay closed locked or unlocked.


Check the latch mechanism on the side of the door away from the hinge. The easiest way I can think of to do this is to push a large bolt (about the same size as the door latch pin on the frame) into the latch mechanism to simulate the door closing action. The latch should close over the bolt and not allow you to pull the bolt out in the door open direction unless you open the door handle.

If the latch works properly, check the door alignment to make sure it is actually engaging the pin.

Driver door won't close 1999 ford contour


Drivers side door will not close because, it might have dropped out of alignment and is sagging down slightly!!! or if it has electric door locks, and someone in the family has failed to mention door locks were activated while that one door was still open!!! now lock mechanism has passed it's normal stopping place and is now stuck, therefore already locked and not allowing door to close all the way!! you might try disconnecting battery then try jiggling the lock, and hope silenoid didn't get burned out, open passenger door and look at lock latch, then check drivers side lock latch!!! if your lucky lock latch should unlock when battery is hooked back up. i have seen this problems happen often on older vehicles!!! especially on cars or trucks that have been in fender benders.........body shops know what to check for, they fix problems like this often!!!!! Good luck!!

I have a 1996 Mercury Mountaineer. Sometimes the drivers side interior door handle does not open the door. It moves but ti does not open the door. This is a on again, off again problem. Is it connected...


no the latch could be hanging up, the keyless entry pad has no mechanical connection, lube the latch area generously, ....even pull the highest bolt holding the latch in place and with the red nozzel spry into the bolt hole .....hold handle in up position and close door like ten times or more to work the lube into moving components....... make sure when this happens that the lock is fully rising to allow to open,
may need and actuator also if thats not occuring.

Driver side door on 1995 chevy express van will not shut


Chances are the door latch has closed without the door being closed.

Inspect the latch mechanism on the door. I suspect you will find that the latch is in the closed position.

Use a screw driver to take place of the normal jam pin in the latch apply tension ( like the tension that would be present normally opening the door) and actuate the door handle.

Make sure to lubricate once you do get the latch to open.
