Sounds like preventive maintenance is the best fix for this. I'd suggest anyone reading this check their latches just to be safe.

so i know this is an old topic but i havnt seen the solution to my exact problem. i am having the same issue with both rear doors being stuck however i went as far as taking the panel off one door and even unhooking the rod and actually bending and breaking the little U shaped hook that is connected to the rod with the spring,lever, and red clip that actually latches the bottom latch. I cant see how anything else could or is hanging the door up but i still cannot get it open. i have been prying and kicking and the whole nine yards trying to free it. Any other solutions guys? Oh and the top latch i can get free its the bottom that is stuck, i just cant see that much rust being a problem, i can leg press over 400lbs and i cant even budge this door. Thanks for any help guys!

Hit them with white lithium greese. Twice a year also keep bottom latch clear of dirt, road salt. When you wash truck wipe door sill dry, wipe under door. Not only will this keep everything working keeps rust monster at bay longer!

I just had this exact same problem with my drivers side rear door unlatches from top but not bottom took the paneling off ( 2 Phillips screws in the hand pocket and one torx under inside door handle then pulls right off even with door shut) I found that the rod that connects the latch to the door handle popped off , put it back in and no problems since

Default Stuck Door!

I have the same issue, as does my Sister who has the same truck. Just the driver door, the passenger door works great. We applied pressure to the door when it first started happening and it worked for a while but now it doesn't work. I am so frustrated. Can someone please help me?

I've found that once you get the doors open clean latches real good of dirt and debres expecaly botom latch. Also lube cables that run latches. Lube up every 6 months with white lithium grese there after and wipe rockers and under doors after washing truck.

Having same issue on my 99 just the drivers side and my handle on the side of the rear door that you would open from the outside sticks out so my drivers door does not close sometimes and when I get out the drivers door opens the rear door since the latch does not shut the rear door anymore (been tinkering with it) ill get it fixed someday
