Q: Door won't stay open

asked by on

Car door won't stay locked in the open position, and the handle doesn't work.

Hello. It is possible that the key is still in the ignition when you are attempting to lock it. An intermittent door lock actuator could also be the cause of this problem. Additionally, your door handle not working could be a result of the rods to the door handle being broken or the door handle itself is broken. I would have mechanic inspect your doors in order to come up with the right repairs for your vehicle.
