SOURCE: 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.

No spring , no trap . Has electrically controlled actuator that opens an closes the temp blend door . Your best bet ,take it to a qualified repair shop , as the dash needs to be pulled to replace this actuator .

The driver side door on my 2002 chevy blazer wont close.how do i fix it?


Door pins are a common failure on that series of Blazer/S10's. Also, another point of contention that the door faces is a sticky latch. Basically, the door latch re-latches itself and when you shut the door into the catch, it slams into it and bounces off. An easy fix is a 3 part cocktail of brake parts cleaner. Open and shut the latch with a screw driver acting as the catch and your interior door handle a few times. P'Blaster, open and shut the door a few times with the screwdriver acting as the catch. Finally, a good shot of white lithium grease. Open and shut the door with a screwdriver as the catch several times. Once you feel it is un-stuck, actually close and open the door several times. If you notice the door rising every time it catches, you MUST replace the door pins (cheap fix). If the door still has issues, replace the door latch (and since you're in there, do some PM and replace the actuator as well).

YJ wrangler door wont close


Start out by checking the latch mechanism on the door. Use a screwdriver to "trip" the latch with the door open, then pull on the screwdriver against the latch gate. If it doesn't hold then you may have a bad latch (the springs in the latch can go bad over time). You can also try spraying penetrating oil (PB Blaster) into the latch and again using a screwdriver to trip the latch, then open with the handle, and repeat several times to work the oil into the mechanism and free it up (this trick also sometimes works with the springs on wiper arms that have lost tension). If the penetrating oil trick works, think about spraying dry lube or white lithium grease into the latch to help prevent it from happening again. If the door is misaligned, consider new hinge bushings, a misaligned door can cause damage to the door, and put tension on the door latch in a direction that puts pressure on the latch that it wasn't designed for.

96 jeep grand cherokee - something happened to latch on driver's door and now door won't close. daughter's car - she's at college - help!


Probably the spring broke which returns the latching mechanism to its "open" position. Pull the door handle and hold it. Take a screwdriver and flip the latch (catch) in the door to the open position. Now, you should be able to close the door 1 time, and it should latch. You need to replace the latch mechanism as soon as possible. You can get a used one from a junk yard. Some on-line parts stores also have free on-line repair manuals which show how to disassemble the door and replace the latch. It is not a difficult job. Anyone with some basic tools should be able to handle it.

I have a 1991 Chevy 3500 crew cab. The drivers door latch will not close. I have removed the inside door panel and see the linkage but I do not know what I am looking at. Is there a diagram available? What...


So when you say 'it will not close' do you mean it won't stay latched or does it 'bang' as you attempt to close it and won't go into the opening all the way?

The reason i ask as it could simply be the 'claw' is stuck in the 'closed' position IF the door bangs and doesn't want to go all the way into the cab opening. IF that's the case then you can use a screwdriver and while holding the exterior button like you're trying to open the door and use the screwdriver to 'flip the claw' of the latch to the open position.

IF it closes into the opening but simply doesn't want to latch it MAY just need some lubrication. Spray it good with your favorite lube (WD40, etc) then work the 'claw' while activating the outside (or inside) button. If it still doesn't want to latch then chances are the spring inside of the latch mechanism is broken and the latch assembly will need to be replaced.

I know you have a '91, which SHOULD possibly be the same as the old '73-'87 regular pickup. IF it's the 'new' body style (1988-1998) then the videos aren't going to be of help at all.

These videos MAY help explain how things work and how the linkages clip onto the actual latch assembly;


I hope this helps.

Driver door not properly mountain or perhaps needs seals what is it?


Does the door have trouble closing? Check the door hinges first. It may not be aligned properly. You may want to have the door evaluated at your local body shop. Good luck!!!

Door won't shut


I had the same problem on nearly the same day. The rear door would not close, and then in trying to fix it I flipped a latch closed. After trying all the child safety and power locking features, I just poked around with a small screwdriver until I could open the spring that held the latch closed. Once I got that open, the door worked normally.
