How long have you had this vehicle? In 2001 a recall was issued for the Silhouette concerning the latch and the motor on the powered passenger side door. Did you engage the override switch to see if you could manually open and close the door?

I strongly recommend you take your van to a GM dealer and have their service department check to see if the recall was taken care of on yoru vehicle.

How can I open a Chevy door latch which is closed while the door is open


that would happen to me and my sisters almost regularly when I was younger. Simply pull the greasy latch open with your finger while operating the door latch that would normally open the door. If its too tough for a finger, which it should not be and never was for me then you could use a screwdriver to pry it, but obviously nothing will happen if you do not pull the door latch at the same time.

When my passenger door is opened then closed the light on the dash indicates that the passenger door is ajar, dome light is on and doors will not lock until the door is open and closed sometimes once...


There is a tiny switch inside the door called the "Door Ajar" sensor, remove the door panel and replace that switch, it is attached to the door latch, it just twists out and back in.

Keeps saying a door is ajar when it is not. It acts as if it has a loose wire but it does everything whether its moving or not. Inside light blinks, the chime goes off and it flickers between door ajar and...


I would bet you have a bad door switch. The switch is attached to the door latch (the part that holds the door closed. The hard way to figure out what is gong on is to, one at a time, remove the door panels, unplug the switch, and see if the problem goes away. The easy way is to scan the GEM/body module and watch door data. The door that says open when it is closed is the door to concentrate on.

You can also try spraying penetratinglube into the door latch area. Sometimes this will loosen up a stuck switch. Open and close the door several times after spraying.

When i close the door on my 95 chevy corsica it doesnt close. it just bounces back. please help im a girl and my parents dont know so use small simple words please.


I think what has happened is that the door latch (the one in the door) has somehow closed and won't let the door shut normally.
Here's how it works. The door latch consists of two major parts. One is the short, round metal tube thing that is attached to the car body about halfway up where the door shuts. Inside the door there is a latch in a slot that lines up with round metal tube thing when you shut the door. I think what has happened is the latch has closed, not allowing the door latch to slide over the metal tube thing and close completely. If you look at the latch in the door slot you'll (hopefully) see what I mean. Now how to fix it.
You'll need a medium to large screwdriver and maybe some help from a friend. First, lift the outside door handle like you are going to open the door. Hold it up. Then, with the screwdriver, push the latch in the door slot UPWARD until it clicks and latches.
It is difficult to put this in words but it usually is an easy fix. No damage done to your car (unless you REALLY slammed the door hard numerous times..).
Please re-post with any questions.

Chevy uplander 2005 and there is a constant beeping that will not go away its constant ..it has to do with the sliding passenger door they say but how do i fix it?


That happens to me all the time!! I just pull over, put it in park, open both sliding doors halfway then close them. This always gets rid of the problem. It's happening because one of the doors isn't catching correctly when it closes and once u hit a bump or anything you will here the dinging.
