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.

The door jam,the metal part on the door that catches the other metal part to allow it to close right sounds like its messed up, ita a part on the door part that could just need to be pushed up and oiled so it will catch right to close.I've had that problem so its worth a shot.

Door will not close - latch on door seems to be flipped around so that it bounces off the corresponding piece on the frame rather than catching it to keep the door closed.


Easy fix - while pulling out on the door handle (like you are trying to open it), take your finger and flip the door latch around so it opens. The latch has rotated to the closed position. This can happen in unusual situations, but is easy to correct.

Hold down the "open" button on your remote and simultaneosly pull the inside handle of that door open. I just had the issue with my driver's door and as my son tried to "help" (he's 9), one of the passenger doors also got stuck! After not finding a non-tech response, played around some until the the dran latch obliged on the front door. Repeated on passenger door and whew! :-)

DOOR WONT SHUT


Some times the door catch closes. Get a pencil and put it in the door where the latch would catch it. pull on the handle as if you were opening it and push the pencil towards the car, this should release the catch. let me know

Boot wont close at all


The latch may be stuck in the "open postion" you might try spraying some WD-40 on the latch. Try working the handle a couple times.

Rear door won't stay shut


Check the latch mechanism on the door. There is a piece of the latch that closes around the clasp on the door frame. sometimes this closes when the door is open and you can't shut the door. Take a screw driver and flip this latch piece open and close the door.
