I’ve been a mechanic for several years and I’ve had hundreds of consumers come into my shop complaining about broken Ford door cables and latches. What happens is the door cables in Ford Trucks (F-150, F-250, F-350, Ranger) and Ford Vans (F-150, F-250, F-350) have plastic ends that preserve the cables fastened in the door cable latches, and these ends corrode and break more than time. When a individual goes to open the door, they will lift up on the door handle and the door won’t open simply because the plastic cable finish is broken. If you take this problem to a Ford Dealership they will inform you that you need to have to spend $400 on replacement door cable latches and cables which is ridiculous!

The initial thing you want to verify is that the screws that attach the hinges to the door and door jamb are tight. Open the door to expose the screws. Turn all the screws clock-smart until they quit moving. Use a common screwdriver to make sure you do not strip the wood. If the screws were a small loose recheck the door to see if it latches now. If it does, congratulations, you are performed and can now go onto the rest of the chores you have to do these days.
