How can you fix a car door on a 1993 Dodge Caravan that will not shut?

On many vans/cars I have seen the latch on the door itself sometimes get tumbled into the shut position on accident. In most cases all you need is a screw driver to put into the latch hole on the door itself while pulling on the door handle simply flip the latch back open. If this is not the case please clarify your question. The door jam has a male stiker the door latch is female or should be open to allow the striker to go inside it once the door is shut the latch wraps around the striker.

My Chevy cavalier door all of a sudden wont shut what should I do?

Just going by the question...I would say that the latch has gotten in "the closed door position". Be sure that the door is unlocked. With your finger lift out on the latch on the end of the door and use the door handle to "open" the door latch.

How can you repair a faulty door sensor in a 2002 Neon?

Door sensors are at the door latch. The sensor is actually a mechanical switch. This switch rides on a cam lobe that activates the switch on & off. The switch is very sensitive and if there is any kind of wear in the lobe of the cam can indicate door open even if it is shut. The only way to repair or fix the issue is open the door latch from the door and replace the latch assembly or build up the wear area. I used a kapton tape to build up the wear area and it fix the problem. Do not over build the area.
