Having problems with your 2001 Ford Windstar ?
Door latch on both front doors are stuck in locking position while the doors are open. This is causing me not to shut the doors. how or what can I do to fix that?
Coincidence? but brother-in-law just called me about the same thing on 2006 Focus that happened today (Feb 07, 2010) -- the latch on the dirver's side just dropped down while he had door open. He then went to the passenger's side and touched the latch over there and it dropped down and stayed. He's not mechanically inclined and is 400 miles away, but is going to try the WD40 thing.
Try spraying with wd40 and hold the inside handle and use a screwdriver or your finger to move the latch catches,im assuming that the latches are in a closed position.You may have to unlock the latch with a key first
