#37 of 51 sliding door do not open electrically
Apr 07, 2010 (8:02 pm)
The right side door on my 2005 dodge grand caravan quit operating electrically, and recently, the left side quit operating, too. The left one will open by pull away from the van, but then it will not slide open. Also, when you close it manually, it pull itself tight. the right side electric system does not work at all. Any thoughts. I am thinking a broken wire on the left, and a short on the right, that the computer picked up on, and will not allow the right door to open.
Any help here would be appreciated.

i tried the lemon law but the said there was nothing they could do. I need to get another dodge garage to confirm it does that but it never does it when the garage has it. Only where ever I go , grocery store. in my driveway, at the drop in senior center.but not at the garage at least that is what they are telling me.

I'm having the same issue. It won't open with the key button or the button inside the van or the by the door. It starts but then just unlatches. It will open by hand very easily and slides well. I thought it was fuse issue first. I checked but the fuse is fine. The passenger side will open but slides rough by hand. Any info that anyone can pass along would be great.

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.
