2010 dodge grand caravan passenger sliding door unlatches but will not open automatically.closes fine. Checked wiring for breaks found none any suggestions


Maybe its connected to a control panel (left side driver door) that needs to be activated. Some door switches have a safety feature that won't allow opening automatically. Check that feature.

Dodge caravan sliding passenger door will not repond


There are contacts in the door jam, first check and clean these contacts. If they seem fine, and you have a way to check for power on these, test and make sure they supply voltage with a volt/ohm meter. If you are getting power through the contacts, that only leaves the lock actuator itself as being faulty.

Automatic doors stopped working on 2007 grand caravan first drivers side stopped and a week later passenger side stopped?


Check your owners manual to see if there is a fuse for this system. Locate it and check to make sure the fuse is good. If its okay, the motors that operate the doors may have failed and need to be replaced.

Sliding door lock


If you check the doorlock actuator it is more than likely bad. On my caravan I had to replace actuators on both sliders. Cannot get correct actuators at autoparts stores. Either go to a salvage yard or to the dealer to get them.
