Normally the problem is not the spring, but a broken spring mounting tab on the door latch head (hook) assembly or the inner door panel.
If it's the door panel, it's usually easier and cheaper to use epoxy and some kind of hardware to fashion a new spring mount.
The door latch head (hook) is easy to replace or repair if that's the issue.

Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the screws you need to remove.

SOURCE: door won't stay closed
There may be something stuck inside the drive. If you feel you have sufficient skill, I would remove the drive and shake it around to see if you can get something to fall out. Other wise replace it with a new drive or take it to a repair shop.

Testimonial: "Was scared to try your fix but thanks."
Door latch on door itself is in closed position if it will not close at all. In this case, open door and pull outside handle hard to pop open door latch. If you have door opening at random, door latch needs replacing or door catch on body is loose.
