Every bump I hit, BEEP BEEP BEEP RIGHT REAR DOOR OPEN message....

Stealer says its a sensor in my whole lock/latch assembly and it will cost 270$ for a new one... no thanks!

Can I unhook this thing so the sensor doesnt work at all any more?

orrrr anyone know a part# i can get to buy one not from the dealer?

Its an annoying problem. but can live with it for awhile :yuno:



This thing?

Sometimes you can free up the part that is sticking in the sensor with some wd40 i've seen it done i'd try that first.

so pop the unit out and clean it basically? to get it out do i have to take off the door panel? i see the 3 screws that hold it to the door

or just spray the latch itself that i can see?

well the one i had trouble with we just sprayed it from the outside and it worked. If that don't work i'd pop it out and mess with it before i spent all kinds of money getting a new one, i'm cheap lol.

wd-40 helped it slow down - didnt pop up as much.. but didnt cure it.

SOOO i put some electrical tape around the door striker thinking it would make the door shut more solid - worked! i drove in to work this morning for the first time in 3 weeks with my RIGHT REAR DOOR SHUT!
