I had this problem. I had a lock smith open the interior panel on the rare door he removed the lock mechanism and tripped the switch it engaged to allow the door to open and the lock to close again properly. it cost me $45.00. you might have a bad mechanism and need it replaced. I accidently hit the latch and caused it to be in the lock position so i was not able to completely close the gate.

Latch door wont close

It won't close or won't latch? Check to see that the latch isn't already in the "latched" position. You may have to release the latch and pull it at the same time.

Right side door won't close

Latch sequence in fixture is in closed position. This means the roundish shaped tab is down and blocking the door latch from entering the door.

If you look at the opposite door you will see that the latch resembles a slot for the post on the door sill to slide into when the door is closed. Your problem door will have that slot closed off by the latch.

Sometimes child safety lock-outs may be 1/2 way engaged and it gets the mechanism out of time. Or the spring which operates the latch breaks and the latch will not retract.

Make sure that the latch is doing what you want before you close the door, or you may be writing about what to do if the door won't open.

Unable to close door

I have 2 different door problems with my 99 Park Ave: one door opens more than it should and often can't get it to move to close it and the other door opens but when trying to close it, the door will not latch closed. I'm not exactly sure what you mean by door wouldn't close, but with your mention of the metal parts, I'm gonna take a guess that it doesn't latch closed (kind of bounces back open too). For that problem I do 2 things to avoid actually fixing the problem. First, I check that the door handles are in the closed door position (my outside handle stays stuck out in the pulled position); I push them both in. If that doesn't work, I push down on the latch mechanism in the edge of the door to find that it was stuck in the open position. Once I do those 2 things, my door closes perfectly.
I hope this helped!

The drivers side door won't close.

open the door , look at the latch on the door , as it get older and non lubricated , the latch can stick in the locked position , i,m going to draw a picture .

when the door is open it should look like the picture , i suggest your door is in the closed position and why it bounces off as you say , take a , lets say a screw driver stick it in where the little lever thats sticking up , push the door open button on the outside door handle , pry that lever forward , if successful try it , and lubricate it , hope my barbaric picture gets the point across .
