#21 of 34 Chevy Venture 1998 power sliding door noisy
Nov 15, 2008 (6:35 pm)
I own a Chevy Venture 1998 and have the power sliding door making a big noise when the vehicule is running. I pull out the panel and I saw that the plastic yoyo that rewind back and foward the cable in back side are broken. The power motor are conect to this plastic gear and the back side have a support guide into a metalic hole and are broken. The gear are dancing into the cavity and making a lot of hard noise while car is in movement. Where can I find this part and how I disconect the tension wire that move the door to replace this part?
#22 of 34 Door won't LOCK. 2000 Chevy Venture

Front Passenger side door is in the UNlocked position and the lock won't budge.
Neither of the two internal lock buttons will lock it, nor will the key fob button lock it.
I've attempted to manipulate the little black lever on the inside of the door handle but it stays put and only indicates the red-tinged area indicating its 'unlocked' status.
It doesn't really interfere with the vehicle's operation in anyway. All the other doors lock. Its just I can't lock the right front door and I don't like it that way!
Anyone have any ideas?

I have found that if it's working but slowly then apply a good lube in the track inside the door. Not WD40 either because it will just wear away.

it may be messy, but spray some engine degreaser on the lock with the door open and wash it good. You need to get some spray white litheum grease to spray in it when your finished.
does the other electrical things in your door still work?
check all the wires going to the door lock actuator. If you had a meter the readings across the wires would be 12v for lock and then reverse for unlock. some vehicles wont lock unless the latch is made. so take a screwdriver and manually latch the door latch with the door open and see if the lock can move then.

we had the same problem on our 2003 Venture. First time it was the cable. You can see it in the door track, when the door is open. The plastic/rubber casing over the cable was badly frayed causing the door to struggle. Replaced it, that cable cost a fortune too, then its been an issue about every six months.

I have this exact same problem with my 2004 Chevy Venture. We have had the windshield resealed and still no luck. Im afraid we are going to ruin our fuse box. Im hoping you resolved this issue? Any help would be much appreciated.

#29 of 34 2002 Window electrical issue
Feb 22, 2009 (6:06 pm)
I have a 2002 venture and love it. I have been having a problem with the windows for the past 2 years and can not trace it. The windows will only sometimes work, lately not at all and I mean both the front and the back wing windows. The front windows will not work unless the back ones do. I am afraid to even try opening them any more as there is no guarantee they will close.
First I tried replacing the master switch thinking it was that. Did not help. Next, I obtained wiring diagrams from Haynes and GM themselves to try to trace what probably is a short. That is when I found out that the only thing the front window and the back windows share or ave in common is a ground on the passenger door post between the front and slider. That is it, other wise everything is different, separate fuses, everything. An from everything I can tell is there is nothing wrong with the ground at the door post.
I am open to any suggestions on where to look next. I do not have hundreds of dollars to have a shop try to trace it. Any input will be greatly appreciated! I thank you in advance!

Driver side window wont go up or down. Passenger side window goes up and down but when in closed position, makes noise like gears are grinding or slipping when it gets to the top.
