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.

I cannot close driver side door on my 97 jeep grand cherokee, drivers side is in locked position, door will not close


Just a suggestion as I have seen this before--with door open pull up on outside handle and in door there is a curved latch that can be pulled open with a screwdriver---the hook is likely closed and with opening pressure on the outside handle you should be able to snap it open so the door will close properly---often happens if someone snaps it by accident closed (the hook latch).

Hello. I really hope you can help me. You see the driver side door has a latch that once you close the door it will connect to the hook that is on the side of the door. However, the latch somehow...


With the door open and unlocked, put something like a screwdriver into the hole of the latch (the part that closes on the pillar striker). Open the door handle while appling outward pressure on the latch, it should open fully, and work normally again.

Driver door won't close 1999 ford contour


Drivers side door will not close because, it might have dropped out of alignment and is sagging down slightly!!! or if it has electric door locks, and someone in the family has failed to mention door locks were activated while that one door was still open!!! now lock mechanism has passed it's normal stopping place and is now stuck, therefore already locked and not allowing door to close all the way!! you might try disconnecting battery then try jiggling the lock, and hope silenoid didn't get burned out, open passenger door and look at lock latch, then check drivers side lock latch!!! if your lucky lock latch should unlock when battery is hooked back up. i have seen this problems happen often on older vehicles!!! especially on cars or trucks that have been in fender benders.........body shops know what to check for, they fix problems like this often!!!!! Good luck!!

The driver side door will not latch shut


I am assuming that the door latch is stuck in the closed position... while the door is actually open already..
This would cause the latching mechanism to appear faulty.
Take a screwdriver and pop out the latching arm while pulling on the door handle...
Once it is unlatched... you should beable to get it to catch when you close the door...

If this is not the case , then please elaborate and we will try to get you Fixed up again.

Rear door latch 1993 GMC Safari stuck


If you stick a screw driver in the door latch and pull while pulling the door handle to open it should open the latch. Be sure to clean it up and re-grease the latch so it doesn't happen again.

1998 4x4 ford explore driver side door will not


There are long linkage rods from the inside handle to the latch assembly. There should be an adjustment on these links. Too tight keeps latch from locking, too loose it won't unlatch. Use a screw driver or rod to trip the latch asm so you don't have to keep opening and closing the door. Also if it sticks closed and won't unlatch, the door won't be locked closed on you.

Our driver's side door latch will not latch and close


I am taking a chance on this one because I am not sure if you mean the latch won't latch close or the door won't close. I base my answer on the door won't close one.....

With a large Philips screwdriver on the door insert the screw driver where the latch pin would be if it did close. ( You are trying to replicate the door latch post. Hold the driver there strong and have someone go thru the motions of opening the door. The screwdriver will lift the door lach up as the door is pulled away. Remove the screwdriver and close the door.

You have now just reset the latch towhere it should be.

The problem would have been the door thinks it is closedso the latch is down now. Follow the above and that resets it to be working.

hope that works for you; let me know please ash.

Driver side door on 1995 chevy express van will not shut


Chances are the door latch has closed without the door being closed.

Inspect the latch mechanism on the door. I suspect you will find that the latch is in the closed position.

Use a screw driver to take place of the normal jam pin in the latch apply tension ( like the tension that would be present normally opening the door) and actuate the door handle.

Make sure to lubricate once you do get the latch to open.
