I'm currently having a door that won't latch, even if slammed and no soft close motor noise. Manual manipulation (yes I just said that ) of the mechanism also does not result in latching. The latch is $600 so I'm hoping I can find some other repair but any thoughts would be great.

This happened once before and I thought it was the cold weather or the fact that I had turned on the alarm before I closed it but its back and I have even had to drive it with the door tied closed with the seat belt most of today. Not happy.
