It sounds like your hinge pins are wore out. Some vehicles have replacement pin and bushing kits you can buy at your local auto parts store.

I have a '96 jeep grand cherokee laredo that the driver side door will not latch closed on. Is this a common problem, and what might the failing-part be?

If the door hinges are not beginning to tear off the body, you may either have a bad latch assembly or you may need to move the striker pin that is sticking out of the door post. I believe yours has a torx socket opening in the end. loosen it and slide it around 'till the latch engages better (usually move it about 1/16 to 1/8" down)

1997 Grand Cherokee. Tail gate wont open. Handle

These rear hatches have a cheesy rod and clip setup. You have to remove the panel from inside, you have to loosen the screws around the hatch and pull it away and reach in down toward the latch and open it that way so you can get the 2 screws out of the bottom easier. There is a peice of plastic in these that's a dust barrier, try not to tear it up too badly, and when you go to put it back, I use a spray adhesive to stick it back on while I put the panel back on. after you get it open you will see a rod with what looks like threads hanging there attached to nothing, and a little thing that has 2 notched areas and a clip to hold that rod into those 2 notches. bend the clip down to make it tighter and then force the rod back into place that should fix your problems. If that's all in place then it's the latch mechanism, usually they can't be fixed because parts aren't available, just have to buy a new one and put it in.

Passenger side dead.

Sometimes the harness at the front door will get a wire break in it. Try working the window switch on the passenger front door (ignition on of course) while slowly moving the door open and closed. If it starts to work, Jeep has repair kits still I believe where you can replace just the harness between the body a-pillar and door.

The driver door on my jeep grand cherokee laredo does not stay closed what do i need to do in order to fix it

Sounds like your door locking device may be worn out from basic wear and tear. I'd just order a new one. Plus it's easy to install yourself!

The drivers side door won't close.

open the door , look at the latch on the door , as it get older and non lubricated , the latch can stick in the locked position , i,m going to draw a picture .

when the door is open it should look like the picture , i suggest your door is in the closed position and why it bounces off as you say , take a , lets say a screw driver stick it in where the little lever thats sticking up , push the door open button on the outside door handle , pry that lever forward , if successful try it , and lubricate it , hope my barbaric picture gets the point across .

You need to turn the feature of last door closed. This located above the rear view mirror. Just push one the button that will lead you to the feature of last door open to be lock. Unlock and save the changes. It is also in your manual if you have them.

These are most likely an add-on option for heated seats. They use universal wiring throughout the vehicle it is more cost effective for them during assembly. Hope this helps!

On my 1989 Cherokee, it is on the edge of the driver's side door. Hope that helps.
