Question about 2004 Toyota Sienna

2004 toyota sienna sliding door locking trouble

I have a 2004 Toyota Sienna. When the keyless entry button is pushed (twice to unlock all the doors) on the keychain and then the DRIVER'S SIDE SLIDING door is opened, the van locks itself in a minute or so as if none of the doors have been opened...... it must be a safety feature that if the keyless entry is pushed and no door has been opened within a minute or so, then, the van locks itself again.... But on my van, if only the driver's side sliding door was opened it locks itself..... If any of the other doors were opened after the button was pushed then the van DOES NOT lock itself....

Also if the Driver's side Sliding door is opened or ajar it does not give the warning light on the dash that it is opened or ajar like it does if any other door is opened

Any help would be appreciated...
Thanks, SJW

Sounds like something isn't right.Try to disconnect the battery for a few minutes and see if that helps.Some times the ecu gets haywired and disconnecting the battery might reset it.And if it is the original battery you might want to get it tested.

Fix 2007 toyota sienna 2007 sliding door


Your question is too vague about the "problem". Is it alignment, latching, locking, handle, etc.? Try looking at the following links:

or http://www.siennachat.com/forum/66-problems-maintenance-repair/1300-sienna-power-sliding-door-problems-thread.html
hopefully you will find a solution there.

I have a 2004 Sienna with a drivers side sliding back door that will not lock or unlock with the key fob or when I press the lock/unlock switch on the drivers side door. The problem is with this that when...


So the sliding back door is stuck in the unlock position it sounds like?Also,the switch on the door...that locks/unlocks all doors?And is there an option to lock/unlock each individual door on that switch?Please let me know and I will see if I can determine how tedious it may be to self-repair or even just to troubleshoot.Also,do you have any electrical measuring equipment?Greg

Both manual sliding doors on my Toyota Sienna will not open


If you can remove the inner door panel you will see a maze of cables running to the various locking points on the sliding door. If the cable going to the FRONT latch on the sliding door is broken (or in my case, simply dislodged inside the door) the door acts as if it is frozen shut.

The front cable is short, and easily replaced even by a newbie mechanic.

Back hatch door won't stay open


your gas struts are bad. there's a recall for this from Toyota. Go to your dealer and ask for it to be fixed, even if you are out of warranty for free.
