Question about 1999 Honda CR-V

1 Answer

Rear Swing Door will not latch

Hi. The rear swing door on my '99 Honda CRV EX was becoming more and more difficult to open and close, so I lubed the hinges which helped tremendously. Unfortunately, since then, the door seems to have "dropped" about 1/2 inch and will not latch properly without manually lifting it, which I have difficulty doing while simultaneously trying to slam it hard enough to shut. Can somebody tell me how to adjust/lift the door? Much thanks for your help!

I have a 2010 f150 the dome lights will not shut off ever


Dome lamps operate from door latches. Most common problem is drivers door latch switch. The switch is built into the latch assembly and is accessed by removing door panel. Try spraying WD 40 into latch assembly and opening/closing door several times to see if this corrects the problem. If a 2 door with side opening doors to rear, possible broken wiring to the swing door where it meets the body

How do I fix the locks for a jeep liberty 2004, the doors work with the remote except the drivers door an the rear swing gate the glass latch works with the remote but the door latch does not open


most likely a wiring problem between internal "radio" receiver and Driver's door lock system. It probably also connects to the other issue. These things are very complicated. I doubt any DIYer could ever figure it out. If not the dealer, perhaps you can find an up to date locksmith to help out.

06 Pontiac torrent driver door won't latch shut?


The latch may be in the closed position even thought he door is open. Compare it to the passenger latch if it looks like it is latched you need to pull the handle and use a tool to swing the latch into the open position.

1990 Honda Accord CB. When I shut the door I locked it at the same time. The door is now stuck locked but the popper is in the unlocked position. So it thinks it is unlocked when it actually isn't. Then...


You'll have to use a screwdriver. Stick it inside the locked latch on the door itself, the hole that holds it closed against the car body, then pry on it while at the same time pulling the door handle up to open it. The lock piece should swing open and your door should close and open normally again.

My Toyota Avalon passenger door makes a clicking noise when opening or closing. What could cause this?


if the click happens when the door is almost completely open then there is an over center cam that latches the door open so it doesnt just swing back at you .. the cam is visible near or on the door hinges ... if there is any loosness in the pivot pin then it will snap each time you go over the latch point .. heavy greese on its pivot pin might quiet it down .. if the click happens just as the door is opened then make sure the door front edge is not hitting the fender edge. of course lube the hinges and make sure they are not loose ...

I have a 2004 Accord and the passenger door swings open and closed very freely. It does not catch even on a level surface and the door will swing closed.


the "door check" is either broken or disconnected, compare it with the left door and check that strap between the hinges.
