2006 town and country passanger sliding door problem

My 2006 Town and Country passanger sliding door isn't working right. When I use the button on the overhead console it will work but sometimes I have to hit it multiple times. Then once the door fully opens it automatically closes itself or won't close using the button until I press it several times. Can you help me? Thank you

    Right hand sliding door does not operate at all 2005 model

  • oqzom Feb 10, 2009

    We have a 2005 and have the same problem on passenger side (most used). We have found leveling to be an issue. Chrysler wants to replace motor which, imagine that, is one of the only parts not covered by the 100000/7 year "bumper to bumper" warrenty. Chrysler has been very "unhelpful" in gettign thsi resolved wanting to charge us $800 for parts and labor.

    Passenger side door will not open, either from the overhead console, the switch on the ignition key or manually. Driver side door is fine.

    Same result using remote or button on door panel. Sometimes all door locks will work, at other times random locks will or will not. No pattern to which ones do at any given time. All manual locks work.

I've leased two Town and Country vans over the past 4 years, and actually purchased the latest one after the lease. In both vans the sliding doors, normally the drivers side, reacted teh same way. If the door was closed it would open, stop a one point, and then return to the open position. At times I could get it close. But over time the doors stoped working all together.

It is not due to the switch or the motor. Most cases like this (in in both of mine) it is due to the repetitive use of that door, and the realitive inflexibility of the wire harness. Over time, and with more uses (in my case the driver side sliding door was used alot) the wire in the harness fails. Picture it as a willow branch. One snapped off of a tree it first is green and flexible, and bends pretty well into any form. But over time, with age and repetitive bending, it will break.

The only recourse is a new harness, as the wire/wires are broken somewhere in the harness (the belt chain in the lower track of the door). I was temped to take it apart and try to repair it myself, but as the parts were under warranty (I have the extended 85,000 mile), I opted to have the professionals handle it. The repair without the warranty is under $200 typically (parts and labor). Good luck.

Sounds like a switch problem. if you can, make sure that the wires are in properly and or test the switch(es). what it seems like, is when you jiggle the switch enough your contacts are doing their jobs. also, check to make sure nothing is caught up in the tracks. i know that these doors are trained to not crush a child or body part so if the resistance is enough they go the opposite direction.

Power door lock inoperable on passenger sliding door only

Not sure if they are same on 2006 but there should be a couple of small rounded metal contacts, or similar, on door that meet with door post to complete the connection. When you find them, clean them off with a little fine steel wool or SOS pad, minus the soap, and see if that doesn't cure it.

Auto sliding door wont completely open or close from the home possition. The door opens half way and the door closes half way.

The wire harness/track assembly below the door needs replaced. It is a fairly simple operation that can be done in your driveway or garage. If you have any questions on how to replace feel free to ask.
