I just bought a 1996 ford bronco to day and the rear window worked then i tried to open tailgate and now it wont work ? can you help.


This is a pretty common problem, Inspect the wiring in the tailgate jam area ,the wiring takes a lot of abuse ,every time the tailgate is open and closed the wiring inside the( black vinyl tube ) gets flexed back and forth and in time the wiring breaks some times if you open up the vinyl tube and inspect the wires it will appear the wires are ok but if you pull on the wire you'll find that it will actually stretch and all thats holding it together is the vinyl insulator ,also there are switches in the door latches of the rear gate that tell's if the tail gate is closed,if its not closed completely it will not allow the window to work properly hope this gets you in the right direction

The tailgate latch, doesn,t latch


you have to make sure the strikers are lined up to the latch. The latches get dirt in them and dont move easily. You may have to remove the latches and clean them and grease them up make sure the action is working. There is a spring on the latch if it is broken you will have to replace the latch. Make sure as you before you shut the tailgate the the latches on the tailgate are open and not latched closed. You can put a screw driver in the latch and pull the handle and that should release the latch in the position ready to accept the striker when you close it Next make sure the plastic clip retainers are not broken on the handle

My 1987 Dodge Ramcharger, 318 Auto, 2wd has a rear door issue. It won't shut and latch properly the owner before me installed additional locks on either side to secure the door but they are ugly. Any way...


take a look at the latches, make sure they are grease good and all working,sometimes one of the latches freezes up, so the door is not completely latched,also you can adjust the striker to lock tighter,this is located on the body, at the top and bottom of the left side door,take a look and see if all latches are latching, use a screw driver to push them locked and see if latec will stay latched in the lock postion. good luck.

1992 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 tailgate wont latch


latches for this are on the sides. The are connected by the handle in the middle of the gate. Latches are either stuck open (dry or frozen open) or stuck closed and you are banging on them when trying to close and "latch" gate. Get a screwdriver and while pulling up on tailgate handle make sure latches(on gate) are open to engage "striker bolt". If they are spray them liberally with WD40 or silicone SPRAY. latch and open several times to let lubricant attack rusted area on mechanism.

If latches won't open they may be stuck closed and won't open because cable going from middle handle to that side or both sides is disconnected. Does tailgate have star shaped bolts on "inside-bed-when-closed" side? If so you will need to spray these with WD40 and let set then get a star torques bit and remove them to access middle handle actuator.

The drivers door on my 96 achieva won't close?!?


If the striker in the door-jam isn't damaged then look/inspect the door latch. It may be damaged and/or rusty, causing it to fail.

Rear doors won't close when cold


I'm assuming different lubrication has been tried on the latches right? Has anyone tried adjusting the striker at the post where the door latches, outward toward door just a slight bit at a time, just to see if that helps? It almost sounds like something is expanding & contracting just enough to cause problems once it hits a certain temperature, like door panel or something, or maybe even the door seals/weatherstripping, will not compress enough to allow proper closure once they hit a certain temperature, or maybe even the door itself is taking a little different shape on at certain temperatures? When the door won't close/latch, take a screwdriver or similar, with door open,and push it against the spot where your striker would normally hit, kind of like using screwdriver to act the same as it would when door closing on striker. If it snaps around your screwdriver, then releases when you pull or push handle as you would to open the door, then that part should be o.k., but try it a couple of times to make sure. If o.k. that's where/when, I would try moving the striker on body toward door, (outward) a bit at a time, and see if it helps. If it works, then adjust that striker to point of working, but not too loose as to cause windnoise. Let me know will ya' I'm real curious now.

Rearwindow/ door


if there are no broken wires inside the tailgate try lubing the latches with WD40 and open and close the tailgate several times. If the latches are properly closed on both sides the window will not work

Power sliding door won't close properly on 2005 Freestar


U will need to buy a can of spray white grease and clean and then lubricate all the tracks the door channels on as well as all the latches for the door, this will cure the issue in most cases, did allot of these while working at a Ford dealer.
