SOURCE: 99 Astro lift door latch left side inoperative

I slammed the door shut one time and the door wood not open at all. I had to take the inside door handle off and found that the cables simply came off of their post (inside the door) on the outside part of the door handle. More than likely only one cable has come off its post on your van. I hope this helps!

SOURCE: i have a 2001 chevy

Same problem here. I finally got it after soaking the bottom latch with WD40 for a week. I ended up cutting the bottom rubber seal OFF below the latch. With a BMF screwdriver and hammer and three opened. The bottom of the latch has an "L" shaped metal guide-this is not the latch. Beside that, towards the rear of the truck, is the latch. The bottom part of the latch must be forced towards the cab and upwards at about a 45 degree angle. After removing the part I could see that it couldn't be unlatched from the inside no matter how much lubricant, heat, cussing or beer drinking I did. TOTAL COST: Latch-about $58 dollars (dealer item only)
Rubber seal- $25 or so

SOURCE: inop hood latch 1985 corvette

In the windshield wiper area on both sides of the car you will see a rubber plug about 1 inch in diameter. Use a flatblade screw driver (about 8-10 inches) and poke this plug out of its hole into the engine compartment (you can recover it later.) Insert your screwdriver through the hole until you find the release latch. Just push it until it releases.

SOURCE: cannot open my tailgate

I am sure you have found your solution by now... but just in case: My wife did the same thing.. you can reach in on the right side and push down on the rod to open. There are aftermarket handles available on ebay and other sources for around $35. I am currently searching install instructions as I just got mine in today.

Fuel pump fuse location not relay fuse

You have three areas in that car where fuses are located. One is at the left side of the dash on the driver's side. Open your car door on the drivers side and you will see a triangle shaped cover on the left outside of the dash . Pull it off to see the fuses. Then you will also have another compartment on the passenger side of the car. Open the passenger door and look at the outside of the right side of the dash area and take off that cover to see some more fuses. Then you have the last fuse box which is located under the hood. Pop open your car hood and look to the left of where the air filter is located and up against the firewall you will see a little black box with a screw off button type of lid on it. Unscrew that knob and take it off completely and you will see the last of your fuses and relay switches. You need to find the original manual for your car if you have it and in the back of it, it will have a listing and a diagram of all the fuses in your car and where they are located. Also if you will look at the inside of the covers for the fuse compartments they should also have information on them for the fuses. I also noticed that on this website, if you will look at the left side, has a listing for manuals on it. Try clicking on that and see if they have a manual for your car or you can buy one at any auto parts store.It is called the Haynes Auto Repair Manual. Autozone sells it. Also if there are any colleges or trade schools in your area that have auto mechanics courses, most also repair cars. most usually do not charge for labor, only parts and a small shop fee. If this is the case call them asap. They can help you. Hope this helps. If you need anymore help let me know. I will try to help. I work on cars and currently have a 2004 Pontiac Grand Am SE1.

2000 vw jetta. driver's side door lock switch will unlock door, but not lock it. passenger side locks all doors properly

Your probably correct in that the drivers side door toggle is broken. Check a junk yard to get this piece cheaply. A Volkswagen dealer will be very expensive. Call around and give them the year,model and make of your vehicle to find a used part.

I have a 2005 Dodge Caravan, both sliding doors are stopped up by a bunched up/broken plastic chain at the bottom (not remote doors). What is this part called and where can I find it?

The part you seek is call a channel harness. They are notorious for having a broken wire over time, and stopping the door from working.

If you have the inclination, sometimes you can find broken wire and repair it.

The part runs about ~$80, and this is roughly a $300 repair at a dealer. My 2005 has had three of them on the passenger side thankfully under warranty.

Broken piece passenger side of front end broken shock

Go to a Datsun/Nissan dealer, find the parts guy. Ask him to pull out an illustrated parts breakdown for your year and model. He can find you the part number and name of your part, possibly even sell you one, but unlikely for that year. Call around to junk yards to find one with an old pathfinder or look around in ebay motors.

Door ajar light stays on

go to your local parts store and buy a can of PB BLASTER lubricant then open each door and spray the latch assembley really good then close and open the door 10 to 15 times. do this with each door. the door ajar light switch is located in the door latch assembley and cannot be seen so soak the latch assembleys really good so lube reaches the switch. these switches sometimes get stuck but this usually frees up the switch
