Chrysler 2002 liftgate problem

Does it power open at all. If not I bet its the latch. This is pretty common on these. Also I have seen when rust will build up on the hatch lift supports. The door will pop when it opens Just clean off the rust with some sand paper.

Fix automatic window town country 2001

I am assuming you mean the drivers side window? Pull the door panel, then take a meter and find out if the switch is getting power, if switch is getting power your window motor is bad and needs to be replaced.

Power liftgate doesn't work

The power liftgate motor is located on the driver side panel directly behind the lift arm. First you will have to take the safety belt bolt out. After you get the plastic piece free from the body you will have to take the bolt out of the arm that connects to the hatch. Make sure you have a big enough torx bit for the bolt that holds the arm to the gate. This will allow you to slide the plastic piece off and out of your way. If you are having trouble getting the plastic piece to come off from around the liftgate arm, try putting the door down, that helped me. The rest should be easy. Hope this info helped you out.

Automatic sliding doors and lift gate don't always work

You need to go to the dealer and have them check the codes. The factory has a reflash for the sliding door and liftgate modules for this type of problem the codes it might have for this is INCOMPLETE POWER OPEN - EXCESSIVE HALL EFFECT SIGNAL the flash is resetting obstacle detection values. But you need to go to the dealer, this can be only one possible cause. I have fixed many vans that has had these 2 codes. There is a bulletin from chyrsler for this.

2002 Chrysle Town & Country Power liftgate won't open.

Replace the lock on the rear door. If a used lock is used it has to have the powered door. I am a car dealer and have replaced about 8-9 of them. I sell a lot of Town & Country vans. The 1st one I paid a Chrysler dealer to fix. About $200. After that I fix myself. About $70- $125 from a Chrysler dealer new with discount. The lock is not sending the correct code to the computer and the door is confused on what to do. Only 3 torx bolts to remove and the door panel 2 screws in handle then snap off.
On one I had that did not fix the problem and it was a relay sensor about $40. on the working arm / motor of the door and not the lock. Look at for used parts. Thanks, Roy
