2002 Chrysler T&C sliding door won't UNLOCK w/ Switch or Key FOB

My drivers side sliding door won't unlock with the remote or the actual switch on the drivers door. It locks fine with the remote. HOWEVER, when you try to lock it with the drivers control, each time you hit it, it goes down just a little bit. So, you have to hit it 6 or so times for it to go down. HELP!

    Driver and passenger side sliding doors seem to take turns whether they want to open or pop open then just sit there. Seems temperature has something to do with it. Maddening as all get out

The other locks work correctly.

quick fix is to clean the contacts that the door makes when you close it. there are contacts on the door pillar (probably look like little copper circles) on the door itself there will be some spring loaded contacts... make sure they work freely and are clean.

Key won t unlock doors


lost the other fob>>> ?????
never own a car with 1 fob.
and if one fob messes up, the battery inside is dead. (or worse)
if just lock fails the button is bad, if one fob false, and they do
its just cheezy switch. (can be cleaned)
use the other FOB, if it fails, post.

Power door lock switch?


Sounds like the drivers door lock switch is bad an as far as the auto start remote the contacts under the button get dirty and won't make contact, open the remote like changing the battery and you can probably get at the contact button, if it's a little carbon button they can be cleaned with a pencil eraser and then paper tower with a bit of rubbing alcohol, if it's an actual switch you can try spraying some contact cleaner into the switch. let it dry before you put the battery back in.

Hi I want to program a new keyless fob. I have the original fob that works great.Do I need to do anything to the original key when I program the new fob? 2006 nissan altima


1. Close and lock all doors with the driver’s side power lock/unlock switch.

2. Insert key into ignition and remove it from the ignition key cylinder at least six times within 10 seconds. Your Hazard
Lamps will flash if you have performed this step successfully. NOTE: Withdraw key completely from ignition cylinder
each time. If this procedure is performed too fast, system will not enter programming mode.

3. Insert key into the ignition cylinder and turn to the ACC position.

4. Within 5 seconds, push ANY button on the remote transmitter. Your Hazard Lamps should flash. NOTE: Do not press
the button more than one time in the above step. If the button is pressed more than one time, the programming
procedure will not be successful.


5. If there are any remaining transmitters (including the old ones), unlock then lock all doors using the driver’s side
power lock/unlock switch and within 5 seconds, push ANY button on the next remote. Your Hazard Lamps should
flash. Repeat this step for each transmitter (including any existing transmitters).

6. Turn the key to the OFF position, remove keys from the ignition, unlock doors using the driver’s side power lock/unlock switch and open the driver side door.
