Car door won't close. The latch is broken or jammed.
First, I would try moving the latch to the correct position. With the door open, pull up on the door handle, and then push the latch to the correct position with a small screwdriver. If this doesn’t work, the latch or striker may require repair. A trained professional, such as one from YourMechanic, can take a look at your doors and replace the door latch for you.
