I don’t know if this will help but I went through this problem for a year. The door wouldn’t latch, the light was on, the interior light stayed on. Ours was on the non-auto door side. A couple of weeks ago, I finally figured it out. I thought the latch didn’t look right. That wasn’t the problem. On the back of the door, there is a matching hook that looks like the one on the front part of the door. It’s held together by three 10 mm bolts. Two of the three bolts were missing and the other was very loose. My guess is that after years of kids slamming the doors, the bolts came loose and dropped out. I happened to have one 10 mm bolt in my toolbox. I screwed that in and the door slid perfectly closed and latched. Again, there are a few reasons why this happens but I have never read about my particular reason in all the posts. Hopefully this helps you out. If not, it’s one more thing to check off the list.
