2005 chev malibu. When closing the front passenger door this morning, the door didn't close all the way as if the seat belt was in the way. The latch in the door was in a down position. Using my key I raised the latch, locked and unlocked the doors with my key. Finally the door closed and latched. (I don't remember the sequence of events.)
Tonight the same thing happened but nothing I tried worked. The door closes all the way, but once I remove my hand, the door doesn't stay closed. Locking the car with door closed doesn't help. The door won't stay latched.
We are experiencing very cold weather. Could this be a cause or is it something to do with the actuator? The only thing that has worked is to sit and let the car warm up and then we can get it to shut. I'm probably going to have to take it in for service.
have the same problem?
