Clean the electrical contacts attached to the side of the sliding door and the matching set of contacts on the pillar using fine grit sand paper. Once shinny surface of contact metal are exposed, spray contact cleaner on these contacts and wipe excess fluid. Contact cleaner is available in spray can container at Radio Shack outlet. Let me know if this solve your problem.

SOURCE: 2005 Toyota Sienna XLE - Automatic sliding door not closing.

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.

Try this.....Find the latch on the door, stick your finger in the hole, lift up and pull the door handle at the same time, the inside latch mechanism should go up, then try the door again. It would be nice if that's all it was huh? Sometimes they stick when they get too cold. If this works for you....spray it with some WD-40 or graphite. Hope this worked for you. Cheaper than the 2000.00 motor!

SOURCE: My 2005 Honda Odyssey driver's side manual

More than likely the connecting rod that goes from the door lock actuator to the locking mechanism itself came unattached. These rods are usually held in place by a small piece of plastic that the rods "pop" in and out. The only other thing i can imagine possible is that the door lock itself is actually seized up. In order to attempt to fix this, you would have to remove the door side panel to see the inner workings of the door, and this is quite difficult on most side sliding doors (i have a 2000 pontiac montana w/dual sliding doors). Hope this can help you solve your problem.

It depends on the actual problem. A body shop may be able to use a tool to go down thru the window sill to unlock the latch. If the latch is damaged, you may have to cut into the door to remove it.

The door gaskets could be frozen to the body, or you could have ice in the door latches.
Can you drive the car into a warm garage ?

2009 toyota corrolla glove box wont close


First thing is first, remove the lightbulb in your glovebox before you kill your battery. On the door of the glovebox, where it locks onto the piece sticking out of the glovebox, wiggle that whole piece, and see if it's loose. If it is, take a screwdriver, and tighten it. It may have just loosened itself from regular use. If it's loose, it won't lock onto the piece because it's just moving up or down when you try to slam it shut. Hopefully this works! Either that, or go to a junk yard, and get that peice out of another car. Simple fix for little money.

Manual door locks won't unlock


I recommend pulling the door panel off and getting a better look. There are little nylon retainers that slip over the metal rods in the door which connect the door handles, locks, latches etc (usually on the ends of the rods). Quick guess is that the end of the rod is sliding in there but because its still clipped onto the rod, it appears to be all there, in its proper place and working correctly. I'm also guessing that there has been a lot of penetrating oil sprayed into the door in an attempt to free the tight lock mechanisms. In reality, allowing the broken parts to slide into a stuck position more easily. Pop the door pnl off, start wiggling and moving different parts of the lock, latch, handles etc... You may want to ask your wife to help turn the door lock key outside while you're watching things move inside. I'll bet the issue(s) become very clear in no time! Good luck!

2001 Toyota Sienna r.h. sliding door ''rear latch switch'' location


To start, the noun "''rear latch switch'' is incorrect. It's actually called "Slide Door Lock". It's located on page BO-20 of the Toyota Repair Manual for the 2001 Sienna. There are two door locks on one sliding door. One in the front and one in the rear. Obviously, you want the one in the rear. The location for the "Slide Door Lock" (which also contains an electric switch) is in the rear of the sliding door located mid way up door. You can see (sliding door opened from the back) it without dissembling the door. And, the lock is made up of plastic (dirty white in color).
