SOURCE: driverside window

With the ignition key in position II and the window in the fully up position press and hold the down side of the window button until the window reaches it's end stop and continue to hold the button down for at least 5 seconds. Next, repeat the above procedure only now going up but remember to hold the switch for at least 5 seconds after the window reaches it's stop. You do not need VIDA for this repair although VIDA can do the same thing only via the computers.

Wit the door open, using a srewdriver, use it to throw the catch, then see if the latch locks into position. if it doesn't then a new catch will be required as the locking latch spring inside the latch would have broken

SOURCE: cant get back door to stay closed

It sounds to me ( correct me if I'm wrong ) like the door latch on the side vertical edge of the door is in the LOCKED POSITION. In order to unlock it perform the following. First electrically with the LOCK button UNLOCK the locks. Now with one hand hold the OUTSIDE DOOR HANDLE IN THE OPEN POSITION, while at the same time FLIPPING OPEN THE LATCH. All Done . Now you can close the door. Hope this helps

SOURCE: driver side door will not "catch" and close

open the door and look at the 2 jaws that go around the strike. then pull the door handle as if you were opening it from the outside and manually retract the jaws back to the open position. this is a common thing that happens. after that it should be ok. lube it with wd40 afterwards.

Rear hatch does not lock on 2005 chevy equinox


This is a rotating latch assembly.
Assuming there is no physical door damage that keeps this latch from rotating freely;
  • Ensure that little fingers haven't pre-rotated the mechanism so that it presents the wrong surface when the door is closed. Operating the electric door unlock feature should return the latch to the correct open position
  • -It may be corroded. spray some WD-40 into the mechanism in the door and rotate it, release it with the electric release switch before trying to work it back open if necessary. If this is the issue, finish with some graphite lubricant spray once it is free again
  • if the latch does not electrically lock, the choices for your mechanic are, the fuse, the wiring, the body and component connectors including one above the rear end differential which, is exposed to some nasty wet and muddy environments and the actual lock / unlock solenoid at the door latch.
Sorry for the varied answers but the question was a little broad. Good luck.

Passenger door is stuck in lock position


Now I understand!
While not with a Maserati, in the past when this has happened to me, I was able to simply trip the latch and close the door.

The locking mechanism on the drivers side door,is locked in the closed positin.Cant get door to shut?


cheffenwolfb, What you need to do is to take a screwdriver and put it in the catch in place of the locking striker. Pull the door handle to the open position and pull the locking catch open with the screwdriver. Try the door a few times to be sure that it doesn't do it again. A little lubrication on the catch wouldn't hurt. Good luck with this.

2006 Jag xj, passengers door cannot be opened either from inside or outside. The inside door handle is in a "half cocked" position and I have tried all I can think of with combinations of Key...


I would confer with your Jag dealer on this one. Removing the door panel with the door closed is a real problem and they may have an easy fix without risking damaging anything. From what you say it sounds like the normal door release mechanism is not engaged but that the lock is. All I can suggest is to wind the window down and to do a combination waggling the 'half cocked' internal release handle back and forth whilst at the same time physically unlocking the door lock and/or using the central locking fob; press the door into the door jam at the same time to take pressure off the frame catch.

Left hand power door lock on huyndai 2002 accent 4 door broken?


It sounds like the classic "someome brushed up against the lock on the door and changed the position to the locked position" ordeal. Try changing the position of the lock in the door. You should be able to look at the lock before you change it and see that it is in the wrong position and can not mate with the receiver (or nader pin). It is classic tha the door won't close when this is the case.

The locking mechanism on the rear passenger door isnt working.The door will close but the metal catch will not lock.How do i repair?


I have seen some times the latch assemblys get rusty or dirty and the inside or outside door handles are pulled and the latch assembly siezes in the open position not allowing the door to latch closed..but this may not be the case .. check to see also if the child lock switch position is not stuck in the halfway position, also check if the latch has not flipped to the close position before the door was closed thus jamming the striker latch..this can be fixed by pulling the catch out while opening the door handle..hope this helps good luck...

Door catch


With the door open hold the door handle up as if opening the door. The latch in the door mechanism will now be free so you need to rotate it to the open position. It might be a bit stiff but it will rotate with the handle pushed You might need a pair of pliers or small wrench to move it around.
