Question about 1996 Ford Taurus

1 Answer

After a car accident the front passenger door on a 1996 Ford Taurus will not shut and will only stay "closed" when tied or bungied. I need to know if the entire door needs to be replaced or if it can be repaired. There is nothing wrong with the car except the door not shutting.

If there is damage to the door, I would go ahead and replace it, because it could either be the latch broke, or the door needs to be adjusted. If the latch is broken then it has to be replaced, if it just needs adjustment, then you could do that without replacing the door, although if you are going to go through the trouble you might as well replace it anyway.

Why does rear passenger side door of 2000 Toyota Avalon occasionally not lock securely in freezing weather?


The actuator/latch is bad. Basically a spring in it is not tight enough to close it.

Dome light does not go off after starting ahd doors are closed


More then likely, the door is not pushing in all the door jam sensors. When the door shuts, the little sensor or button is pushed in. That is what turns the light off. You might have to tape one. Also, make sure the dimmer switch is not turned all the way on, That would cause the light to stay on as well. You have four of these buttons on each door jam. Check them all. If you need anything, let me know. I am here to hep in anyway possible. Thank you for choosing FixYa.

MY DOME LIGHTS STAY ON EVEN WHEN ALL THE DOORS ARE SHUT ON MY 96 WINDSTAR THE DASHBOARD IDIOT LIGHT STATES THAT THERE IS A DOOR AJAR BUT ALL DOORS CLOSED. I CLEANED ALL CONTACTS ON BACKDOOR AND SLIDING...


Spray lubricant in the driver's and passenger door latches. One of the switches in the latch are sticking. Open and close the door several times to free up the switch.
