Passager automatic sliding door issues

When we push any of the 3 door buttons this door opens then shuts without pushing the button again. Kids have to move quickly to get out!
Opening normally when we manually slide the doors open. Previously the same door, right side, was staying open and won't close manually or powered/button. We would have to wait 5 + minutes then it would reset and able to close. Now we have a door that wants to close on its own. Thanks for any ideas.

Sounds like a safety trigger as in a pinch sensor or a hall sensor in the motor. does the door have a drag like feel when you open it manually or does it just zing open as it should. if it drags when u open it. i would vote motor. make sure your tracks are clean and free just lube it up with wd40

2001 ford windstar sliding door wont shut


I have found that Windstar sliding doors are subject to amnesia. If they are not opened and closed regularly, they "forget" what they are supposed to do. I make it a point to use my fob regularly to open and close the door (one in my case) to keep it focused on the job at hand

How to remove sliding door inside panel of Mazda MPV


1. Work with slider in open position. It helps if you are on a slight incline so that door stays in fully-open position and won't slam shut on your fingers.
2. Remove inner handles and door panel:
a) Inner handle. Remove the inner handle first. You can't see it too easily but a wire clip about the same thickness as a large paper clip holds the handle to its shaft. It's shaped like an upside down "U" so it needs to be pushed straight up. Press the panel outward around the handle and you can just see the clip. Use a small thin screwdriver to locate the bottom tips of the clip and push it up. You may have to alternate from side to side but it will pop off. Grab it with a pair of needlenose pliers if you have to. The door handle willl now slide off - just pull it towards you.
b) Power window switch. Remove power window button by squeezing hidden tabs along the sides of the button. Again, you may have to push the panel outward a little and pry the switch to see the tabs. Wiggle it a little and the button will release. Pull it out and unplug the wiring harness.
c) Door panel. There are several plastic buttons which hold the panel on at the bottom and up the sides. Use a plastic putty knife to get behind panel and pop it out of the holes.
3. Once all trim fasteners are released, grab the door panel at the bottom and pull straight up to release it at the top. You may have to give it a quick upward tug to get it to release. Push the power window button wires through the mounting hole. Look at the panel buttons to make sure that all of them came off with the panel. If not, remove the remaining ones from the door and put them in their respective slots on the door panel. (Trying to re-attach the panel without the buttons installed on the panel will be frustrating.)
4. Outer handle removal.
a) Unclip the handle lock button / bar by turning the small tab and pulling the bar out of its slot. Hard to describe here but you'll figure it out once you see it.
b) Remove three bolts which hold the handle on the door. Note that one bolt is accessible from the outside of the door along the front jamb.
Replace handle and reverse the steps above.

Notes: Check the locking mechanism and make sure the door opens and closes before you reassemble the panel. Remember to orient the inner handle the right way before you re-attach its spring clip. (I've attached it upside down and it won't work!!!) . Also, be sure to feed the power window wiring harness back through the mounting hole before putting the panel back on.

I HAVE A BMW 735i I WANT TO KNOW WERE IS THE TRUNK OPENER?? I COULD NEVER FING IT.


Go to the trunk and put your key in and turn it all the way to the left and remove the key. This way by pushing the button at the trunk it will open, the trunk will lock when your doors are locked and the trunk will unlock when the doors are unlocked allowing the button at the trunk to work at that time. I'm not quite sure if your system works that way, or Try pushing the button that opens the trunk down by the hood release latch, or, you should have a remote key with the trunk open button on it, it should have 3 buttons, one is lock, one is open the car and one is open the trunk, if you have the automatic opening trunk, this should be the same, and to close it, just press the lock button and it should automatically go down again, as you did not specify what year yours is, one of them should do the trick...hope this helps

2001 Oldsmobile Silhouette....Power lock on my power door doesn't come up completely and the door doesn't open with or without the button. What can I do? I also believe my van has other electrical issues...


From the back of the front door slide your hand in the sliding door crack and find the child-safety-lever. Push the lever up and/or down while moving the sliding door manual lock/unlock button to the up position. Also works on the non-powered sliding door.

Door will not slide automatically; emits loud beeping noise


Something similar to that was happening with our Odyssey...the beeping when you are driving whether it's ongoing or intermittent is the "safety alarm" letting you know the door is not closed. The power lock is not engaging. What I do when I get the beeping while driving is hit the Door Close button. It causes the door to attempt to engage again. To fix it...we first cleaned out the space below the side running board (kids were hiding crayons and things in there), then looked for any obstructions along the top and bottom tracks. I sprayed a lubricant along the tracks (I'd suggest the dry lube kind...I used WD40 the 1st time and had streaks of it dripping down after driving), use a lube that has a long straw to spray in small places...and spray up into the track that runs the length of the middle of the car. Manually open and shut it a few times to get the tracks lubed, then try it out.
If you press the open OR close button by remote or in the car and get nothing...no movement/no noises/no beeping...then it could be the electrical circuit itself, the signal itself may be impeded...or the motor shot. Have you tried any of these suggestions before?

BMW X 3 Panoramic sun roof initialization.


title says X5, but description says X3. i'll explain for an X5, but X3 with the pano should be the same. and i'll explain function of the roof, not reprogramming.

button is located on the panel at the top near the front & center windshield. its the switch on the far left on this panel. its a switch that not only toggles, but also slides forward & back.

with your finger in front of the button, slide it back & release. this will make the cover slide back and store revealing the sun roof. you know have 2 options (tilt the sunroof up or open the roof completely).

to tilt it up, press up on the rear of the button and release. the rear of both roofs will pop up. to close, push up and release the front of the button or slide the switch forward.

to slide it open completely, repeat what you did to open the protective cover (slide the switch from front to back). the roof will open completely and stow out of the way. to close, slide the switch forward and release. pano roof will now close.

to close the cover, slide the switch forward again.

neat trick: if you want to tilt the sunroof open without opening the protective cover, press up on the rear of the button (when the cover is closed) and release. the cover will separate in the middle exposing about a 2-3 inch mesh, then tilts the sunroof open. to close, push the button forward again.

also, if you are above a certain speed (can't remember what it is off hand) with the sunroof open or tilted, it will close automatically, then perform the neat trick on its own to keep air coming in.

one last trick: if you want to open the windows and sunroof from outside, press & hold the unlock button (forward button on the key) and you will see the windows go down, then the roof will open to vent. releasing the button will stop the motion of the windows & roof.

hope this answered what you were asking.

Chrysler T&C Power Door Problem


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 -

2004 toyota sienna sliding door locking trouble


Sounds like something isn't right.Try to disconnect the battery for a few minutes and see if that helps.Some times the ecu gets haywired and disconnecting the battery might reset it.And if it is the original battery you might want to get it tested.
