Hatchback lock wont latch

I went to close my hatchback on my 2002 dodge grand caravan earlier and it wouldnt latch, you could just pull it open, is there a recall on this problem? We just purchased the van a lil over a month ago... Does anyone know how much something like this cost to repair, the auto parts store say they dont sell these kind of parts it is only done through a dealership

Why won't the driver side manual slider door open?


The rod from the handles to the lock mechanism could have come off or become bent to the point that it won't work the latch anymore. The prior problems were probably just symptoms of the problem you have now. Will have to take the door panel off and manually trip the latch.

Sounds like the locking mechanism is worn out and needs to be replaced any mechanic in you're local area should replace it rather cheaply.

2006 dodge Grand Caravan power door wont open automatically, makes clicking sound.


These automatic side doors are extremely complicated and require a trained technician to repair wit the factory repair guides to go by, there are many adjustments to be made and sometimes that is all they need plus some cleaning and lubrication of the latch and moving parts. My best advice is let the dealer fix this.

1993 Dodge Grand Caravan: after sliding side door was opened, latch at rear edge of door returned to closed position and will not move when door is closed, even when door handle is pulled. Door therefore...


Try putting a screwdriver in to act as catch on door frame & try pulling each handle & getting it to let go. Make sure you spray it, as well as behind it & around it with WD-40 or similar to get things loosened up in case their just partially seized. The keep working it with screwdriver until freed up.

2002 dodge grand caravan rear hatch latch


ok, then the lock actuator is most likely seized, if you need instructions to repair, let me know, you have to get the part first, this will be a dealer item most likely. Then it's pretty simple. Remove the interior panel on the liftgate, you will see the latch and lock assembly, and a rod coming from it,the rod leads to the actuator. remove the rod, the retaining screws for the actuator, the electrical connector and then reverse for installation. Any issues let me know.

Good luck.
