Most likely your door latch is broken and needs to be replaced. First, try to use a screwdriver and see if the lock jaw will reopen and when door is closed, if it will work properly. If it will not open or does not keep the door closed, it is broke and needs replacement.

Mine did this. I went around to each door and sprayed a liberal amount of WD-40 in the latch, then open and closed each door about five times. It hasn't done it since. I think the switch inside was not moving freely.

SOURCE: door on driver side won't close- latch hitting

The reason it gets stuck up is that it's as if you shut the door, so it naturally wouldn't just go back down when you push on it. If it did that would mean your door would fly open and wouldn't stay latched shut when you drive. All you have to do is pull up on the outside handle while pushing down on the latch to simulate exactly what you do when you open the door and it'll go down easily

Door locked and will not unlock and cant shut door


sounds like the door latch mechanism is stuck in the closed position. if you pull on the door handle and use something like a screw driver and pull the latch claws open the door should work. the latch is the part that closes around the door striker plate bolt to keep the door closed. lube the latch to help keep it from sticking again.

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.

Check the latch itself (on the door) is in the open position, ans didn't accidentally flip to the closed position. This has to be open so it can fit over the stud in the door jamb, where it flips over the stud to latch the door.
If so, while holding door handle (as if you were trying to open/unlatch door), flip latch open, with a finger or a screwdriver.

Back door won't close


you can check the lock on the door isnt in the closed position(would sound like banging noise)
with the inner door handle pulled see if you can flip the lock to open on door. lubing doors once in awhile will prevent this

Cant get back door to stay closed . The lock is stuck in locked position I think and the door is open. When I go to close it, it is'nt staying closed. Had to duck tape it to stay closed. LOL! I keep...


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

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.
