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.

Your problem is the door thinks that it is already locked and closed. You need have the sliding door unlocked, have someone pull the handle as if they were going to open the door and then use a tool to "Open" the latch that normally would hold the door closed.

My front door will not close because latch has locked in place, help 1999 Chevy astro van


You should be able to open it with a large screw driver. Simply put the screw driver in the hole where the latch would go and pull the handle to open the door. With the handle in the open position pull the screw driver toward the inside of the van and the latch should open right up. Then close the door. Hope this helps.

Sliding door won't close/latch


First you need to determine if the issue is a door sliding issue or a door latching issue. These are 2 separate problems.
If the car/van was in an accident-take it to the bodyman.
If the railing is dirty or has a nail, penny, etc in the way this would also cause problems.
If the latch is already closed on the door lick it can't engage since it is already 'latched'.
Isolate the problem - try again! TJ

94 Lumina APV Van Sliding door latch stuck


It should be a "V' or "U" shaped locking mechanism, that the bolt on the latch slides into. You will have to pull the handle, while taking a screwdriver and sticking it into the slot, and pushing down. The handle will release the lock, the screwdriver is just so you can put some elbow grease in to slide it down.
