Chrysler Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.The problem you are having can be caused by either a sticking door latch or a sticking lock actuator. Before you do anything try taking some WD-40 penetrating oil and at the latch with the door open try spraying a very librial amount of the oil into the latch and then open and close the door a few dozen times and see if the will free the latch up. Give this a try and let me know and we can work from there if need be.
Okay it sure would not take much to go ahead and lube the latch to at least rule it out . If that dose not solve the problem then the next step would be to remove the door panel and have a look at the linkage and the latch.
Well I would go ahead and do it once it stops raining and see. Something has to be binding because the door handle as well as the latch/actuator is mechanical. It may be the actuator but that is also part of the latch.
Okay let see what happens when the sun comes out. If it still has an issue then I would suspect the actuator may be the cause but let wait and see.
