Question about 1995 Pontiac Trans Sport

1995 Pontiac Transport power sliding door cable doesn't retract

Power sliding door does not operate except manually, even after resetting the "TAIL" fuse. There is a cable that comes out of the area of the door frame above where the sliding door rear latch catch is located. It seems like this cable should retract into the door frame. It does not retract.

SOURCE: 2006 Pontiac montana SV6 power sliding door sensor

I have a 2006 SV6 with the power sliding doors. The problem that I found was with the contacts on the door ( They are called plungers) the movable pins were losing connection with the fixed part The plunger is very easy to replace if you can find one. The plungers are covered with a rubber cover and is held in place with 2 plastic pins. My Pontiac dealer could not even find one in his books or even a picture of one, and claimed that he had never had anyone come with a door problem. My Chevy dealer said that it came with a wiring harness that is not needed for $154. The cure that I came up with was to take the plunger block apart (it snaps together)and replace the rusted out springs then solder 3" wires to the end of the plunger pins (they solder easy) to the tabs that go to the plug(pop out the tabs or you will melt the plastic. It took about 45 min. now the doors work like new and will never loose contact again

I have a 1995 Pontiac trans sport. I was driving and van all of a sudden died. Some people a telling me it is the transmission others say maybe not because they dont understand why my front tires have...

The Engine and Automatic Transmission (not applicable to manual transmissions) in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM and TCM (Power Train Control Module, Transmission Control Module). When a problem like this or other drive-ability related problems occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM. Also always check fuel pressure for correct spec for your make and engine type.

Sliding door reset

According to the owner's manual you need to remove the fuse marked "TAIL" from the fuse panel for 30 seconds, then put it back in. Do this with the sliding door in the closed position. In my 1995 with 3.8 engine it is the fuse in the bottom left position of the fuse panel in the glove compartment area.

1995 transport sliding door opens one inch then stops and wont close or open. Pulled the fuse to reset no luck.

This is not a job for the home mechanic, it requires special skills and training to repair.

Have you tried (with engine off) taking the left bottom fuse out(I believe it's "TAIL" keep it out for a miniute, then put it back in and crank the engine. push the side door button and open it. Wait a few seconds then push button to close. Make sure your battery is fully charged.
The fuse box is in the glove compartment in dash on left hand side.
