one of your springs on the door is busted likely. Easiest fix is to get another door the same color and replace.

Or it may just be out of adjustment. When I got the 95, the lock was out of adjustment because the previous owner didn't want the locking feature.

A small torx screw is all that changes where the lock is positioned.
