Q: Car door not closing and locking properly

asked by on

The car door on the driver's side doesn't close or lock properly. I have to push it hard and it is jamming the power locks.

It sounds like there is a problem with your door latch. The door locks are tied into the door latch so that explains why your door does not want to shut properly and your power locks are jamming up. I would ask for help from one of the mechanics at YourMechanic to come and diagnose your door locks so that the proper repair can be made.
