Sounds like you have a problem most jimmy owners have but to an extreme, the most likely cause is that the door pins and bushings on the hinges need replaced.

The driver side door on my 2002 chevy blazer wont close.how do i fix it?


Door pins are a common failure on that series of Blazer/S10's. Also, another point of contention that the door faces is a sticky latch. Basically, the door latch re-latches itself and when you shut the door into the catch, it slams into it and bounces off. An easy fix is a 3 part cocktail of brake parts cleaner. Open and shut the latch with a screw driver acting as the catch and your interior door handle a few times. P'Blaster, open and shut the door a few times with the screwdriver acting as the catch. Finally, a good shot of white lithium grease. Open and shut the door with a screwdriver as the catch several times. Once you feel it is un-stuck, actually close and open the door several times. If you notice the door rising every time it catches, you MUST replace the door pins (cheap fix). If the door still has issues, replace the door latch (and since you're in there, do some PM and replace the actuator as well).

Drivers side door lock will not release and allow door to close.


OK First I think you have a typical lock/latch failure situation, you must hold the door release handle open while pying the latch hook to the open(able to recieve door catch rod mounted on the inside door post) once you pull it back the door should work fine if this continues to happen the door latch assembly needs to be replaced(those big philip head retaining screws are installed with a special tool to secure the door latch from coming loose so be aware its not easy to remove)


NEXT IF THIS IS THE PROBLEM WITH YOUR DOOR:

Inside the door is a door lock electrical solenoid.... when these solonoids malfunction they will do exactly what you are describing.... to access this you must remove the door panel and all tah is connected to it.....raise the window all the way up....with a light locate the lock soleniod....very carefully remove the part, be sure you have the replacement handy in order to identify the part.

The little rod from the inside release catch to the door lock has been broken/come loose.

Take out the door panel and see what is the problem. Then either fix it or let someone to fix it.

My one door lock button is stuck down and others simply don't wor


You may need to remove your door panels (screws are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door) and then peel back the weather film on each door to see what could be causing the issues.. rusted wires, loose connection, broken linkages, seized linkages. I'm not sure what to do with your car since each door seems to be having a different issue, but I would check the locking mechanisms..

Driver door won't lock with key fob


Check the locking solenoid / actuator in the door behind the panel, could be burned out or loose wire. It should take about 20-30 minutes to open, fix it and close the door panel if there's no major problem. Autozone might be able to help out with a solenoid.

I have a 1998 BMW 528 I. The drivers side door latch will not catch. So door will not close or lock


Wit the door open, using a srewdriver, use it to throw the catch, then see if the latch locks into position. if it doesn't then a new catch will be required as the locking latch spring inside the latch would have broken

Door not closing, mechanism not ingaging


Hi. Have you checked the "child safety" catch the prevents the door being opened from the inside? That might be in the wrong position and causing a problem. I had a problem on my 93 Golf and I got it working again by exercising the catch mechanism with a screwdriver - pushing the locking mechanism- the greasy bit on the edge of the door - up and down numerous times and lubricating it again.


Hope this helps. If this "fixes ya", I'd appreciate a rating for my reply, If not, please delay the rating and add a comment with any extra info you have and I will try to think of something else.

Cheers, D.
