The Mechanism is inside the rear well of the drivers side slider door. There is a pin that allows the door to pop open, but not slide out. Me and my father just replaced ours a couple months ago on our 2000 dodge grand caravan es... You need to take the interior trim piece out and take the interlock out from the inside of the door. the most likely problem is that the door was slammed shut so hard that the pin that holds the door went past the cavity that it is supposed to rest in. This was the case with our Caravan. You will also need to put at least 3 washers on the top two bolts connecting the mechanism to the door well to ensure that this won't happen again. Good Luck!

You rock! Two doors up in an hour and that was with a trip to the store to buy 25 cents worth of connectors. The U tube was the clincher, ninja & good show, A.

I've been searching online for a solution for my problem and I run into your post here but I just need to confirm if this is the same symptom. I have a 2007 Dodge caravan which works great until last week. I would be driving and I just notice the dome light is on and I come to find out that the drive side sliding door pop open but not slide open just pop open. so I stop and get out and slide it closed again. Once the van started moving it poped open again and the dome light turns on. It sounded like your door pin you replaced. Would you mind emailing me at kaybel815gmail.com and let me know how to fix it. I would greatly appreciate it. I tried googling it but I can't seem to find a step by step how to replace that pin. Thank you much for your help.
#51 of 51 Slider unlocks on own, key fob won't work to unlock or start on occasion
Sep 03, 2013 (5:42 pm)
I used to love my Town & Country van until 30 days ago. The first indication was not being able to open the van with the key fob. Assumed a dead battery. My husband rescued me with his key fob and low and behold my fob started what I thought was a dead car. Two batteries later and a couple of visits to dealership asking about short in wiring and no resolution, we put new batteries in the key fobs. My van would not let me in again. Started fine a half hour later. This is when I noticed the clock on the radio was 2 hours off. Got home and the slider on the passenger side opened on its own and then the hazard light came on for two clicks and then off, two clicks and then off, all while my door opened and closed. I started the van again and everything stopped.
Turned off the engine and locked the van. Started walking away and the driver side door unlocked and then the slider started up again and so did the hazard lights. I do believe this has been the cause of my dead or weak battery. Came home the other day and the slider was open too. Sometimes my fob works, sometimes not. If I wait, it usually turns on all of the lights on the dash and will start. One time I could not get the Fob out or turn off the van. I did change out the battery. Going back in to the shop tomorrow because I can't take clients in a car that may or may not let us in, turn on or off or will have a slider door that we can't secure. We've disconnect the battery on occasion because who knows what the car is doing when we aren't looking. HELP!
