Its like in winter if your lock has ever got stock. You go to shut the door but it bounces open. But its summer and i go to close it and it bounces. It wont latch. I got some WD40 lubed it up becasue it was tight, and it still bounces. So any ideas? Thanks

no still doesnt latch. i have the latch in the right position so when it hits the metal bar it will move it to latch but it doesnt. and nothing is in the way of the door.

Do you have power locks? If so its possible you may have a short or something if it won't move. That's all I can think of.

I just lubed up my rear door latches last week. They were getting harder and harder to open.

I ended up taking the door panels off and squirting a high quality lubricant on the mechanism inside the door. Don't use WD40, it doesn't last. I also lubed the latch with some grease.

You may be able to squirt some lube on the front door latches through the slot with the window down.

if you have the door panels off, also lube your power window tracks.
