Question about 2005 Ford Freestar

Power sliding door won't close properly on 2005 Freestar

Our Freestar's driver side power sliding door won't properly close. It stops just short of latching and then it reverses operation back open. You can hear the latch actuator operate and then "bog down" before the door pops back open. To get it to latch properly we need to push against the rear of door (near the C pillar) during the end of the closing travel.

    I have the same problem with my 2004 Ford Freestar. We already checked the tracks just to be sure another one of the kids' toys did not fall down there becuase the last time this happened they managed to drop a small toy on their way into the van. The tracks are completely free of toys or anything else that would get in the way of closing but they still pop open right before it is suppose to latch. I am going to give the posted solution a shot before calling the local Ford Dealer. Thanks for the tip.

U will need to buy a can of spray white grease and clean and then lubricate all the tracks the door channels on as well as all the latches for the door, this will cure the issue in most cases, did allot of these while working at a Ford dealer.

    I am having the same problem except even if I manually close the door it pops open. Very embarrassing only way to get it closed it to manually shut the door then quickly lock it. I've greased everything I'm wondering if its not able to latch? Like its not sensing the door is closed? Please help tired of being embarrassed by my possessed door

Driver side sliding door on 04 freestar van non power wont open after opening and closing the fuel door


There is obviously a switch on the fuel door that prevents the sliding door from operating while the fuel door is open. Look for that switch and spray some electrical cleaner (or even "Brake Kleen" from an auto parts store). Both evaporate quickly without leaving residue. The switch is probably "gunky."

2006 ford freestar driver side power window not working all of a sudden. Was working fine today and then just stopped working.


Wiggle the wiring harness going in the door between the door jam by the hinges, and toggle the switch and see if it works, normally wires brake with the door opening and closing.

2005 Freestar "door open signal"


Chances are the autolock doesn't work because it "sees" a door open. Check the plunger between the door and the frame of each door to see if the plunger is broken, bent, or otherwise not working.

could be a partially broken wire in the wiring harness that runs in the door track. the wires are inside what looks like a plastic chain that allows it to move with the door and have seen them partially break not allowing power to flow the whole time
