Drivers side door will not latch closed

Asked by Jan 03, 2015 at 11:30 AM about the 2009 Ford F-150 FX4 SuperCrew 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2009 F150 4 x 4 SuperCrew Truck and the driver side door lock will not latch
closed when I shut the door.  The actuators sound like they are working for all 4 doors.
Also, I noticed that the driver side manual pull lock will not stay down when I depress
the auto-lock. I have driven around (over 12 MPH) to reset the locks but nothing
worked.  It's cold out this morning too. 30 degrees F.Not sure if that has anything to do
with it.  Do you know what the problem is?

Sounds like the door is in the closed position. Try to use the key on the outside of the door to un lock

The latch could be stuck as well. See if you can move it with a screwdriver. If that's the problem lube it up with some WD-40. HTH. -Jim

a common malfunction on vehicles, usually the drivers side because it is used more often, is the plastic piece on the door striker (screwed onto the post which the door lock catches) is worn away. Check the striker. If it is missing that is the cause. The plastic inserts cannot be replaced except on the rear hatch, the entire striker must be purchased for the doors. Why is it that way? So the parts supplier can make more money.
