It sounds like the latch is binding on the strike plate. you can do one of two things, move the strike plate up or down to make clearance room, or take a flat file and file down the part of the strike where the latch is getting stuck. put some chalk (chalk line type) on the strike, close the door and then reopen, you should be able to see where the latch is sticking as the chalk will be gone from that part of the latch, this is where you would file.

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.

What would cause the rear door latch to work in unlock and disengage when locked?


Make sure the striker plate is adjusted right. That's the piece that the door latches on to on the door frame. It should have an adjustment. You may need a special wrench to loosen it and move it to a better position. I hope this helps.

My Kwikset door handles turn, but the piece on the inside of the door will not retract far enough to allow the door to close. It gets stuck about 3/4 of the way in. Any advice?


The latch houses the retractable part that catches the striker plate. If the retractable part does not retract far enough, then possibly that might need to be defective and need to be replaced.

My car door does not close,door lock is jamb


Check the latch assembly where the door closes. If the latch claw is closed it won't latch. Make sure the door is unlocked. Insert a screwdriver into the middle of the claw (circular opening where the striker latches). Open the door handle from inside or outside and pull sideways on the latch it should pop open. If it doesn't then the lock mechanism is in the lock position. Remove door panel follow lock rod to the latch and manually try to move the lever to the unlock position. If all fails you probably will need a new latch assembly.

I accidentally pulled the interior trunk release of 2008 volkswag


Try a screw driver,and release the trunk release at the same time and unsnap the latch,the latch thinks it is closed,because the latch never opened back up to allow the striker to go in it and trigger the latch to close,the latch is in closed mode,you will have to manually unlatch the latch sort of speak.

Can't close back door without turning the knob


Try taking the knob out of the door and spraying the whole latching mechanism with WD40 or some kind of lubricant. There is a few moving parts in there that can get bound up. Hope this helps. Don't forget to leave feed back.
