Had same problem. Unhook the ground cable from the battery for about 15 minutes and this will reset the computer. Worked for me.

Locking mechanism clamps not activating. Still making all right noises but not actually locking


You wrote ''The dash is signalling that there is a door ajar somewhere when there is not''.

Car will not lock doors if all doors aren't closed so that's why you can't lock your door.

Car is thinking that doors aren't closed .
Just look for all doors latch and closed door contact switches.
You will find one or more that isor are not working.

Change those door contacts and everything will work fine.

Door open light on in the dash lights flicker on and off. but doors r closed


one of the door ajar switches are not adjusted properly and the door is not contacting the swtch enough to open it completely. close all doors and have someone watch the light and go around to each door and just start bumping the door and see which switch it is. replace or adjust the switch to better contact the door when it is closed

Power side power on 2000 sienna van does not work


Sounds like the switch in the door, that tells the car the door is closed, is not working or broken. It may be inside the door or on the door frame. It looks like a button or a slide button that when the door closes, it's supposed to close on this button and shut off the interior lights and turn off the dash light. The doors probably won't lock because it thinks the door is open with the keys in the ignition. Electrical systems are never cheap to fix and they can cost a lot of time just to figure out exactly what's wrong and where. I hope this helps.
