Hi - I have a 2002 DB7 Vantage and recently both doors have a problem latching when closed. If you just swing the door shut it will literally bounce back. It takes 3-4 tries, and a good push and hold shut, before the doors eventually latch and the windows snug close. Possibly a battery problem? Thanks for any info.....

Ok,, mine started this again and could not be solved with wd 40 this time.
there is a plastic bushing on the door striker that’s extremely worn! I the cut the bad piece off and slid the good part of the bushing to where the latch makes contact. I put a spacer in the area to the side of the striker that holds the good portion in place and it seems to be working perfectly after about 20-30 openings and closings! Might try that if you haven’t solved your problem yet!
good luck
