Rear door will not open on my ford focus ghia t reg


Hi chance are the mechanism inside door jamming. Short of forcing off the inner panel in order to clean lubricate etc I find the best way to get this open is to get someone to keep activating your central locking open and shut while you simply keep trying the door handle at the same time and this can some times just catch the latch in just the right position to get the door open ( you dont need to forcefully be pulling on the handle as the latch will either simply click over on the fine spring latch mechanism or not force is not going to help).
Once and if you manage to get door open take off the inner door card panel and oil lubricate mechanism. rather than then shut door simply use a screw driver on latch to test and worth then working back and forth. If still jamming replace latch.

My door ajar light and beep keep randomly going off while driving with all doors shut completely.


either a door sensor is bad or a door latch is loose. you can take it to a ford dealership and they can look up which door is setting it off. Just double check the rear truck door and also the window in the rear door if thats on a latch.

Where is the door switch on a dodge durango


Sorry Their are two different types. One is located in the jam of the door, in the body of the car not the door. it is a little black spring loaded button that pushes in when the door is shut. If it doesn't have that style then it is part of the door latch. You can take a screw driver and slide it in the latch to move the jaw on the latch their are two clicks until the latch is completely latched. try that and see if it says anything. Before you start this go arround and make sure all door are shut all the way including hatch. Then check owners manual and see if their is a switch on the dash that controls the interior lighting make sure it is in the off or door only position. There is usualy on off and door.

When i close the door on my 95 chevy corsica it doesnt close. it just bounces back. please help im a girl and my parents dont know so use small simple words please.


I think what has happened is that the door latch (the one in the door) has somehow closed and won't let the door shut normally.
Here's how it works. The door latch consists of two major parts. One is the short, round metal tube thing that is attached to the car body about halfway up where the door shuts. Inside the door there is a latch in a slot that lines up with round metal tube thing when you shut the door. I think what has happened is the latch has closed, not allowing the door latch to slide over the metal tube thing and close completely. If you look at the latch in the door slot you'll (hopefully) see what I mean. Now how to fix it.
You'll need a medium to large screwdriver and maybe some help from a friend. First, lift the outside door handle like you are going to open the door. Hold it up. Then, with the screwdriver, push the latch in the door slot UPWARD until it clicks and latches.
It is difficult to put this in words but it usually is an easy fix. No damage done to your car (unless you REALLY slammed the door hard numerous times..).
Please re-post with any questions.

My 1987 Dodge Ramcharger, 318 Auto, 2wd has a rear door issue. It won't shut and latch properly the owner before me installed additional locks on either side to secure the door but they are ugly. Any way...


take a look at the latches, make sure they are grease good and all working,sometimes one of the latches freezes up, so the door is not completely latched,also you can adjust the striker to lock tighter,this is located on the body, at the top and bottom of the left side door,take a look and see if all latches are latching, use a screw driver to push them locked and see if latec will stay latched in the lock postion. good luck.

I have a 2000 VW Beetle and the door won't shut completely. It doesn't click shut. I have been able to shut it sometimes from the inside but I can't from the outside. Now I can't shut from the outside or...


There is 2 parts to your door latch. The first is the latch itself, the second is called the " strike" The strike may be out of alignment or the latch is bent or broken, and will have to be replaced.

Rear door won't stay shut


Check the latch mechanism on the door. There is a piece of the latch that closes around the clasp on the door frame. sometimes this closes when the door is open and you can't shut the door. Take a screw driver and flip this latch piece open and close the door.
