2004 chevy astro van back seat right door won't open
Re middle back seat row of seats -- the door on the right side of car (only door to that row of seats) will not open. Passenger was able to get into car and shut door. But when it was time to exit car, door would not open. Is there a history of this being a problem with the 2004 chevy astro minivan?
Re: 2004 chevy astro van back seat right door won't open
Not sure about your specific vehicle but i do know that in the winter, when a door closes, it grabs the pin in your doorjam like a lobster claw closes on a finger. if any moister is inside the mechinism, it can freeze very easily. also if you pull on the door handles tp try to open it...if the door handle moves freely, then you either bent or popped the rod that goes from the latch mechanism to the handles and you would have to take off the interior wall of the door to get to it and fix the rod or put it back...it used to happen to older cars allk the time.

You will need to manipulate the lock linkage from inside the door using car-thief type tools and expertise or by gaining access to the door internals by removing the interior trim panel from the door. It is not an easy task and might need the seat removing and even then the panel is likely to suffer damage.
Both sides have their own modules. They are behind the panels right beside the middle seats. Remove the back seats (if you have third row seating) Pull the panel (they pop off). Either replace the module or disconnect it and manually open and close the side door.
Not really sure if other modles got the same location.
Battery located under the Right Back Passenger seat.
for the seadan ... you may have to remove the back seat by pressing the corner bottoms in both sides then left it up and drag it to front to got it free... you will see the battery under it.
for the wagon... open the back right door and release the bottom seat by pressing the lock handle at the side of the seat up.... seat bottom will be cimi free to be lifted to front and then you will have free access to the battery.
if you just need to recharch the low battery... you can find the charging plugs under the hood to the left side ( +) will be covered with black plastic box... open it and connect the possitive cable (red)... ( - ) will be few inches front of that to be conected with nigative cable (black)
Yes of course you can remove the seat. There is a pull at the rear of the seat in the middle (down on the frame) The pull is a loop of material. You need to pull that up with solid force, this will release the lock so you can tilt your seat forwards. Once the seat is rotated forward enough, you will be able to lift the seat out.
I leave my seat out behind the drivers seat most of the time for easy access into the back and just putting stuff in the car. Also, the side clearance height is higher than the rear hatch height.
The middle row seat slides forward to the middle position (and several other positions as well.)
Owners manual explains how to slide rear seat foreard.
Remove middle row seats. Lift handle under 3rd row seat cushion on passenger side. Raise seat cushion up until it locks up. Then lift the lever on the passenger side of seat and pull seat forward until it locks in place.

It depends on your seating. My Windstar has bucket seats, and the very back is a bench type 3 seater. The middle row normally has 2 shoulder/lap belts. It really depends on the perks that the original owner opted for upon purchase. For instance my driver seat has a button on the right side to adjust the lumbar area of the seat. Checking CarFAX will let you know if the vehicle has ever been in a major accident. Most people do not realize that after an accident, seat belts and their anchors should be replaced.
first open your rear hatch/doors.2nd fold third seat over buy using latch on right side. 3rd pull relase handle in middle of seat on the back bottom . this unhooks the back latches. use the other hand to pull meatl bar up, tipping seat. 4th while holding metal bar with the one hand use the other hand to pull small release strap. it is too the right of the metal bar, this releases the front latches, pull rearward the seat moves out. the seat is heavy good luck
The 2004 Trailblazer has two fuse panels, one in the under hood and one under the middle row seats. The radio fuse is marked RADIO fuse # 41 and is a 15 amp fuse located in the rear fuse panel. To access the rear fuse panel flip the seat behind the driver to the upright position, under it you can see the fuse panel and a diagram should be on the under side of the cover.
the last one i done which was an astro van so i should imagine this one is similar,had two rear seats,the one directly the driver had the side door in so it was different in as much as it had two lap belts the back one only had one lap belt in the middle.the outer inertia belts are a three point fitting .If your still not sure then visit a scrapyard and have a look.This astro van was weird though because it had 9 places altogether but here in spain you can only carry 7 people without a public service driving licence
