My 2000 olds bravada glove box door is stuck open the latch won't let me close it. Even though there is no way to lock it it seems locked! Do I need new latch or can I fix this one?

Your latch might be in the closed position before you even close the door, try using a small screwdriver on the latch while pressing the release button, if it's stuck closed then this will open it to the right position so it will lock closed when you close the door. If this does not work, sometimes the problem is in the striker (the little tab that the lock hits when the door is closed, this usually has 2 small screws holding it in place, you should be able to loosen both screws & adjust the striker forward or backward so the latch will make better contact with it.

How do I get the Whirlpool washer door to close all the way? I think the door lock is jammed

The lock/latch on your door is electromechanical, incorporating a electrical safety catch. See if a reboot (unplug for 10 minutes, then plug it back in.) does anything for you. It could be a latch, wiring, motherboard, door closed safety circuit or something in the pause circuit.

Removed door handle and there is a cable that is attached to the handle that is broken (driver's side) and I'd like to know how to remove the cable inside the door to replace it.

to remove the old cable and to install the new one you will need to remove the latch and then unhook cable from the latch. remove the screws on the outside and then you will need to unhook any linkage connected like outside handle rod going to latch, take note of the location of anything removed from the lacth and how it goes on and where, this can get confusing when putting it back together, good day,

Either someone bent the door by excessive weight on it while open (like a kid standing on it) or something is jammed in the sealing surface.

Driver door won't close 1999 ford contour

Drivers side door will not close because, it might have dropped out of alignment and is sagging down slightly!!! or if it has electric door locks, and someone in the family has failed to mention door locks were activated while that one door was still open!!! now lock mechanism has passed it's normal stopping place and is now stuck, therefore already locked and not allowing door to close all the way!! you might try disconnecting battery then try jiggling the lock, and hope silenoid didn't get burned out, open passenger door and look at lock latch, then check drivers side lock latch!!! if your lucky lock latch should unlock when battery is hooked back up. i have seen this problems happen often on older vehicles!!! especially on cars or trucks that have been in fender benders.........body shops know what to check for, they fix problems like this often!!!!! Good luck!!

Last night we started the car to clean off snow. Closed the doors. Cleaned the car. Got in and the doors would not close. It appears that the mechanism on the door that grabs and latches the door...

If the latch is in the closed position, simply use a screwdriver to pry as if the door was being opened at the same time as you pull on the handle to open it. This will return the latching part to its proper position and you can then close the door. If the latch is already open and won't close when you shut the door, the quickest way to get it closed is to heat the latch with a blowtorch. Don't get close enough to the door that you scorch and burn the paint but heat the area arond the latch for about 30 seconds or so and the door should latch. You could also do this with a hair dryer or heat gun but it will take longer. Open and close it a few times quickly and it should work properly for a while. To keep it from happening again, once you have it working freely then spray into the latch with some WD-40 or RustCheck. Don't be shy with the spray and get it right into the latch through the door. If it keeps being a problem then before you spray it with a lubricant use a small can of lock de-icer once you have the door working. After that put the lubricant in. Hope this helps.

Just bang the door again until the error goes away. The door is not lined up and won't latch properly. At least that is what ours does. I usually slam the door on my machine.

Not only do you have a lock rod but you have a lacth control rod. That's the one that's not working. Remove the door panel and replace the plastic clip that broke with a new one.
