    Ya, I have the same problem. The passenger rear sliding automatic door will close almost all the way, but then it will open back up a little and stay stuck. Also it's lock sometimes gets stuck and won't open by button or be pulling the actual lock thing. It has to be jiggled a bit, which is really annoying when you need to go quickly.

I found out that the auto sliding doors are just like garage doors.... need lubed, connectors in door jamb cleaned and sprayed with silicone lube and sometimes an ajustment for tension- dealer item.... I took mine to a dealer and drove out 30 min later.... hope this helps.

2001 windstar annoying problems with auto locks


Does this happen all the time or only if weather is hot or damp? You need to open your sliding doors, disconnect your negative battery terminal, there will be 5 prongs on your sliding doors and 5 contacts on your door jamb. They are made of copper and you need to sand them down little with fine grit sandpaper possible 120 grit. Close the doors connect your battery terminal back on and make sure it is corrosion free. Check the operation after and see if the problem is solved?

2001 ford windstar sliding door wont shut


I have found that Windstar sliding doors are subject to amnesia. If they are not opened and closed regularly, they "forget" what they are supposed to do. I make it a point to use my fob regularly to open and close the door (one in my case) to keep it focused on the job at hand

1999 - 2000 ford winstar sel power locks very weak ...hardly work work erratically...driver and passenger locks do not lock or unlock automatically.....8-(


On the 2000 Windstar that I was working on, the casing for the door lock actuators had split and the lock knob on the top of the door would twitch when I hit the button, but would not lock or unlock fully. I replaced the door lock actuators (in stock at my local dealership) and cleared up the problem. Also check the bushings that link the rods inside the doors. They are plastic and occasionally wear out

My windstar was horrid for relays that needed to be replaced.... locate the relay(s) that control the power doors and replace them.

Remove "Door Ajar" switch. Clean the switch and use a graphite type lubricant (I recommend "Dry-Slide") to lubricate the actuator on the switch. Reassemble the switch.

The switches are located inside the door panels, attached to the catch mechanism.

1) Remove interior door panel.

2) Using a T-27 Torx driver, remove the 3 bolts holding the catch in the door.
2a) The door ajar switch is the only part on the mechanism with the 2-wire harness.
2b) The switch is located at the rear catch for the sliding door.

3) Using a small flat screwdriver, gently lift the black tab on the catch mechanism and rotate the switch to remove it from the catch assembly.

4) Using a rag, clean the small round actuator and apply a small amount of graphite lubricant to the actuator and work the switch so it moves freely.

5) Reassemble the catch and the door.
