Question about 2006 Chrysler Town & Country
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
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.

the ambient temp sensor is mounted in front of a/c condenser..sensor may be broken/missing..should be able to see sensor looking straight in front of lower grille opening..fairly inexpensive and not too bad to replace..dealer part
