I can not shut the trunk door of my Lexus rx350? It won't close.

Look at the hinge pins can you with the door open move it up and down independent of the chassy. Also look at the stricker on the frame of the door to see how well it aligins with the latch on the door ,
The hinge pin system these companys went with sucked and most of them went with them to save money .
The good news is you can get the replacement part .
The bad news is its hard to replace and it will be no better then the one that you already had the door is to heavy and the pin is week

Dash reads back door open when its closed

What vehicle is this? The easy answer is that the door switch is not turning off. Open the door/s and check for a little rubber bump somewhere along the frame. Push it in manually and see it this turns off the warning light. If it doesn't you might have a short to earth somewhere. If it does, you need to adjust the switch outward a little.
Good luck.

How to adjust pass door of 03 blazer

Oh is the "A" Frame OK, also the door frame where the hinges are your looking for damage distortion creases etc.
As the body guys say a dent is fixed by reversing how it happened, so to me this will be a body shop job. Ask a friend in the know to have a quick look see.

Hello, I have honda accord ex, 1995 bottom driver side light kept blingking while am driving. Do you thing "Fuse" thks Jessie

I think your door might be adjust too far out and the door is not push the Door Switch in far enough when it's close. Adjust the door inward a little by loosing the stricker screws and tipping it in with a hammer. See picture below for Door Switch and Stricker.
good luck

My drivers door seems to be sagging from the front pivot point of the hinge which is causing the door to not open well. It has gotten so bad that I have to physically lift the door to open. It no longer...

Sound like what you need, is door hing pins, they go on the hinges, remove hing pine and brass bushing, install new ones, you will need a jack or some thing to hold the door up while you replace the bushing's and pin's.

94 saturn door panel removel

Well, first you have to remove the outside door panel. To do this remove the door handle on the out side. Lift up the handle and look underneath. You will see 2 little round pins sticking in the handle. Take a small punch and push them up. The handle slides to one side and then off.
Next you need a torx wrench to remove the 10 panel bolts located inside the door frame. I think it is a 40 torx.
Once they are removed you can lift up on the door panel and remove. You can't get access anyother way. Inside door cover can only be remove by removing the outside panel and
taking the clips off. So, once you have the outter door panel off you will the workings. You will need a flash light. Check the throw arm that attaches the locking switch on the lock to the door latch assembly. More then likly that is all that came loose. If that is ok then you need to replace the door catch assembly. Not an easy project. If you can do it the part is about $50 from the dealer. You will need to remove the 3 torx screws attaching the assembly to the inside door frame. Disconnect all the clips that attach the arms. Installation is the reverse. NOT AN EASY JOB TO DO. Plan on a whole day to figure all this out.

Passenger side along the frame rail (unibody i know but where the frame would be) right up close to the motor. its a squeeze and push and pull type but be careful with the plastic line there not cheap and they are probably brittle.
