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!

Re: 2002 Chrysler T&C sliding door won't UNLOCK w/ Switch...
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.
a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

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.
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.
reprogram the remote transmitter. first leave driver door open all other doors closed,key removed from the ignition switch. insert key into the ignition switch,then remove it.press lock and unlock on the vechicle door lock control switch at 1 second intervals 5 times. close and repoen drivers door.press lock and unlock on the vechicle lock control switch at 1 second intervals 5 times. insert key into ignition switch. switch ignition on and off twice to program a remote transmitter code whilst erasing the original codes or three timre to check how many remote transmitters are currently registered.remove key from the ignition switch.system should now lock and unlock.twice to indicate programming mode or one to four times,slowly to indicate number of remote transmitters registered.for the solara press and hold lock and unlock remote buttons together, press lock remote button for a second period of 1 second. system should now lock and unlock vechicle.once to confirm, twice to indicate registration has failed.if required repeat button procedure to program remaining remote transmitters.note to exit programming mode close drivers door or insert ignition key.maximum of 4 remote transmitters can be programmed.if akk failed let dealership reprogram remote transmitters.
So the sliding back door is stuck in the unlock position it sounds like?Also,the switch on the door...that locks/unlocks all doors?And is there an option to lock/unlock each individual door on that switch?Please let me know and I will see if I can determine how tedious it may be to self-repair or even just to troubleshoot.Also,do you have any electrical measuring equipment?Greg
