Ok, if you have not slammed the door too hard and you are having a latch problem you need to gather a few things. This works better with two people if you have help. Take a screwdriver and place it in the middle of the latch on the door (where you would expect the bar the latch attaches to on the car would be if the door was shut). Have you other person pull the door handle as if they were opening the door, this will release the door latch itself. As they are pulling the handle, pull the screwdriver towards the inside of the door releasing the latch. I know I have a hard time explaining this method without being able to show you, but this is what you need to do.

If you live "up north", I would be suspecting rust or corrosion inside the door mechanisms.
You should be needing to take all 4 door panels off, all the whilst remembering that the clips holding the door panels on may be plastic and are very easily broken.
You might need to take the inside door mechanisms apart and lubricate them.
Be sure to use a lubricant that will not evaporate or wash off with water.
I like silicone grease for this.
God bless your efforts.

Driver side door is frozen open with lock closed. Try to close door and it bounces back. Unlocking with key or with auto-lock does nothing. Key turns, lock button goes up and down, but mechanism does not...


Give the locking "jaws" a good dose of WD-40 and start with a pair of pliers ans working the door handle get the "jaws" moving and work it a lot while keep dousing it with the lubricant. Worst case scenario would be that the spring that opens the jaws is broken and will need replaced. Please rate this answer, thanks.

My trunk will not close


There is a possibility that the remote latch cable is stuck (lubrication is gone) . With a screwdriver, NOT the fingers, try to return manually the latch, to its open position (instead of the pull open position). If you push it too far, it will go into locked position, and when you pull down the trunk lid, it wont reach its normal closed position. In that case, pull the latch back open, with the remote lever. Should you manage to close the trunk properly, spray some WD40 or some lubricant on the latch assembly.

Driver side window stuck on Nissan Maxima 2004


It is likely the window motor is wearing out and will need to be replaced. You can always try a different switch on those wires to rule out switch problem. Otherwise, the motor will have to be replaced.
