Door locked and will not unlock and cant shut door


sounds like the door latch mechanism is stuck in the closed position. if you pull on the door handle and use something like a screw driver and pull the latch claws open the door should work. the latch is the part that closes around the door striker plate bolt to keep the door closed. lube the latch to help keep it from sticking again.

They are stuck and need to be lubed. Use WD 40 and spray the latch on the door. Then close the door and open it a few times to work the spray in. Then spray it again it should work just fine.

I cannot close driver side door on my 97 jeep grand cherokee, drivers side is in locked position, door will not close


Just a suggestion as I have seen this before--with door open pull up on outside handle and in door there is a curved latch that can be pulled open with a screwdriver---the hook is likely closed and with opening pressure on the outside handle you should be able to snap it open so the door will close properly---often happens if someone snaps it by accident closed (the hook latch).

Back hatch wont open jeep cherokee 01


the switch in the back door will get seized with age. When this happens the latch assembly will stay stuck halfway open and closed allowing you to close the door. when the door locks the latch will jam. and now will not be able to open until the latch is freed up and unseized again. you will have to access the latch by going through the inside and popping the panel away from the door. then using a screw driver force the latch to the fully closed position. then unlock door and open. Lubricate the old latch till it moves freely. then it should work properly for you.. good luck

if you look at the latching mechanism on the bottom of the door, you will see two metal teeth. If they are close together, you will have to have somone hold the handle like they were opening the door and use a screwdriver to seperate or open the teeth. Then you shold be able to close the door. Hope this helps :)

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 .
