Default door locks

I have a 06 cruiser and the back doors will not close. one of the doors will not close or latch. the other back door will not open from the inside or outside. i have to duck tape the door closed. any ideas why the back doors wont operate? sometimes i can get it to latch, but rarely.


thanks

I had a similar problem on one of my other rides... Found that taking the catch assembly off and cleaning it up and relubricating it all did the trick! Check for any bent or broken parts too. Easy replacement if you need to go down that route. With the oor not actually closing, it indicates that the problem is with the catch rather than the central locking, which is good news as the central looking system can be a bit of a minefield! Good luck!

If it is happening to all the doors then it sounds like the relay or control is not setting . if it stuck in the release position with the current still open then it sounds like an electrical short .could be a common wire loose or off .Pull the door panel and get lock switch out and check the wiring or may need to be replaced. take to local auto shop ( autozone,advance,O'reilys see if they can check it out with a meter might be bad. Could also be a bare wire rubbing somewhere.

Hope this helps, Bobby

First culprit I would suspect would be corrosion,which I would fix with PB Blaster or WD-40;Then next thing I would check would be a faulty latch mechanism,which I would remove & examine closely.....And replace if I couldn't get it to function properly.
