Chrysler T&C Power Door Problem

I have a 2005 Chrysler T&C with power side doors and tailgate. A few days ago, the side door on the driver side started malfunctioning. When I push the "open" button, it will only open about one-quarter-way and stop. At that point, it will neither close nor open if the button is pushed again. Occasionally, it the door will open half-way, or all the way, when I push the "open" button, but then it will not close if I push the "close" button. If I open the door all the way manually, again, it will not close when I push the "close" button. I can see no obstruction or physical problem that is obvious. The amount that the door will automatically open varies, but it will not close at all automatically, although it did when the problem first begun. These facts make me believe that there is something wrong in the electronics/computer, but I know NOTHING about cars. Recently, there were times when both I and a passenger would push the separate door buttons at the same time, or times when the passenger would manually push the door open or closed at the same time I pushed the automatic button. Wondered if this might have screwed things up? Any ideas? I am unemployed and can't afford to spend hundreds of dollars to get this fixed at this time. Thanks!!!

    We the same problem on the passenger side of our 2006 T&C. When the button is pushed, the door will unlock and attempt to open, but usually only opens a fractional amount about two hand-widths or so. We can manually open it. When we push the button to close it, the door will almost shut, but stops right at the same place it does when it tries to open. The door works manually, but what a pain!

If it stops in roughly the same spot every time, and won't respond after it has stopped, it sounds like a broken wire. It is likely losing its electrical current to run the motor. It should be right where the track bends when the door has stopped. Check for loose or frayed wiring inside the flexible plastic track just below the door. The wires will often wear after being bent over and over again. If you find a broken bit of wire, cut out that section and splice in a new length of wire. Be sure you do a good job splicing, or you may end up with the same issue again soon. I am not a mechanic by any means, this just makes sense to me, and I'm considering buying an 01 town and country with this issue, which is why I'm on this site to begin with. Best of luck -

If the window had not been slow in it's action before it stopped working I'm guessing you only have a connection problem. I would remove the door panel and using a multimeter check the hot wire to see if power is reaching the switch. If it is check the connection on the motor. If power is reaching the motor through the switch you have a faulty motor. If at any point of testing there is no power backtrack the power wire to find where the break is. (it's usually in the door jam)

We have a 2005 Chrysler Town and Country. The remote will open the tailgate but not the side doors. Also the switch on drivers door will not lock or unlock the other doors.


I believe the doors have to be unlocked before the remote can open them. If they are not unlocking by remote, it seems a common solution is to remove the IDO fuse in the fuse box under the hood, and simply put it back in. This resets the electronic problems and seems to allow everything to work again. If the problem reoccurs regularly it may be because one or more locks are not functioning properly causing the system to shut them down. Lubrication usually works well.

2005 Chrysler Pacifica passenger doors have no power


If your alarm went off, it could be that someone had tried to break into your car. They most likely may have cut some of the wires inside your door with what ever device they may have been using. Look for evidence between the bottom of the windows and doors where the problem is. If not, then it is possible that your automatic window assemblies are malfunctioning. Do you hear the motors run on the windows when you go up or down with the switch? I also have a Pacifica, 2005, however no window problems yet.

Good Luck,

Ray
