SOURCE: 1994 Ford Festiva - Door won't open

Sorry to hear that your door is stuck closed. The problem is that the plastic clip that holds the unlatch rod into the unlock mechanism broke and the rod fell out. Since the door is closed, you cannot remove the inside panel, so you will have to open the door the way an auto locksmith would (with a slim-Jim tool that slides down the outside of the window into the door from the outside). You can buy one at some better auto parts stores or sometimes even from the larger 99 cent stores. My local 99 cent store has them. I recommend putting a small wedge into the door between the glass and the opening and slide the opener to find the door mechanism at the rear center of the door to unlock it. You are looking (by feel) for the mechanism that the unlock rod was attached to. If you cannot get it yourself, you will have to find someone who has some experience with opening doors this way. I have opened mine many times with a Slim Jim tool, so I am positive that it will work, if you use a lot of patience and bend the opening tool to get to the proper area to activate the unlocker. Try to find the little arm by pushing and pulling inside the door with the tip of the Slim Jim tool. That's it.

SOURCE: passenger side doorwon't open from inside the car

What has happened is the poorly designed clip that holds the pull bar to the handle has snapped causing the bar to fall out. Take the interior panel off of the inside of the door, using 2 pairs of pliers twist the end of the bar around and simply insert it in the hole it fell out of, I have had to do this to all of my doors and, unless you slam the door really hard it will stay put.

My 2002 Ford Thunderbird's driverside door will not close. It seems that the latch is stuck in the closed position, therefore the door will can not shut properly

In some cars it is possible to take the latch with your hand and move the mechanism enough that it will pop back into the open position for you. Be carefull if it snaps back into place your finger could get pinched.

Good luck, if you cannot reset the latch then you will have to replace it.

If you are able to reset it then I would suggest that you lubricate it to help prevent it from getting stuck again.

There no adjustment at hinges only bushing can be replace, but on the pelier is where the striker at, that's the part where the door latch latches to, with a torx tool you can loosen it to align to the door latch. the striker will move up, down, in and out, not much but it will adjust.

Interior lights won't go out. I closed all the doors and moved the switches

Make sure that the thumb wheel switch is not turned all the way up. If this is ok then take some WD40 and spray a liberal amount into the door latches and open and close the doors firmly a few times to see if this unsticks the door ajar switches.
