There is a spring inside the door lock that makes it work this spring is most likely broken try spraying lubricant on the lock just in case its binding ,but it seems like you will have to replace the lock mechanism

Look at the latch on the end of the door and make sure that the latch is open.You will want to spray the latch with some lube.If it is not open you can flip it with your finger or a screwdriver while holding the door handle like you are opening the door.You can look at the latch on the other door to see what it looks like open.Well hope this helps.

Our 2006 Saturn Vue door, when closed, will not latch - simply bounces back. This problem arrived with cold weather. A bit of warm water on door latch solves the problem, but only once.


This problem has arised everywhere this week with the cold spurt across the country. It even happened in my driveway! Do NOT use hot water to solve the problem, as when the vehicle is back in the cold it will only cause the vehicle to freeze shut and thats worse yet. Try one of these items instead. a small squirt of wd 40 worked for me or you can also use a blow dryer to heat the latch. The hot water trick will only make things worse so try another option next time.

Run the Vue with the heat runed all the way up, and the vents on, for about 30 minutes. this usually unfreezes the door for me.

It has happened to me three times now in really cold/wet weather.
