Question about 2000 Ford Focus
Every time I try to close the driver's side door - doesn't matter if it is locked or not - it won't close. It seems to do this more in warm weather - on cool days I don't have the problem as much. I can't figure out what the problem is!
I assume you mean that it won't latch. I think the lock mechanism is sticking. With the door open try to flip the latch on the door with your finger. It should make a sharp click. And you should be able to release it with the door handle. Check the passenger side door to get an idea how it should act. If it does not work easily, or does not click, you need to replace it. I think it is a dealer only item.

don't forget to check starter, and ignition switch,otherwise i think John Parker is
right on the money.
I also think that if the shop couldn't find it they shouldn't charge you at all.
