Question about 2004 Toyota Sienna
I have a toyota sienna LE 2005. Mileage 38,000 miles. the doors work fine in warm weather! when the weather gets cold, however, neither back sliding door will open. the latch releases (i.e. the dash light turns on to show the seal has been broken- door open) Then I have to bump the door closed with my **** ;-) to close the seal.
Any thoughts? By the time I get to the dealer each time, the weather has warmed up and the doors open - UGH! Thanks!
could very well be the relay for the power door and possibly the interior light relay... they are located in the fuse panel under the dash.

Hold the door handle in the open position while using a bent coat hanger on the door catch lever.Sometimes a flathead screwdriver works to pry the door catch as well. Good luck, keep me posted.

This may or may not work depending on exactly what is wrong with the door, I cant tell what is wrong without looking at it directly however:
You can try starting with all doors closed and unlocked, keys in hand disconnecting the battery and letting the vehicle sit for 2 min or so, then reconnect the battery. Put the key into the ignition and turn it to the on position but do not start the van. Next press the button to disable the power sliding door for the drivers side, then manually open the door fully, wait 5 seconds, then close it manually fully. Press button the button again to re-enable the power sliding door, then try to use it with the automatic feature either by pulling the handle or using your remote, this may or may not work depending on if the door has somehow become de-initialized (it should work now) however if something is broken inside the door closing mechanism or door closed/open sensors, the door will continue to malfunction.

Solved it. Found a small shank screwdriver that fitted into the opening with a little bending of the plastic frame. managed to replace it with a new one without trouble. No further help needed. dave
