This is likely caused by a defective door ajar switch inside the door on the door latch. I do not have any specific info because this make is not sold here in the USA and that is where Fixya is located.

My driver side door cannot open fully anymore, I am able to open about 10 degrees, just enough to slide into the driver seat. Yesterday I heard some clunking noises and had a lot of resistance opening and...


the DOOR CHECK is broken. There is a screw are at the opening handle trim and the arm rest should have a screw. then the plastic clips, hold the panel to the door. You may pry gently to get the panel off, if you have to force it apart, not all screws are out. The window handle has a small clip holding it, it pulls out towards the knob, be careful that it doesnt fly off and you lose it.

My windstar vans side door on the driver side is stuck in teh lock position. the door is not shut all the way but I can't unlock it. I've tried to pull the lock up but it won't budge. please help


Try to close the door fully by pushing it forward (may require several hands pushing at once) which may reset the lock and latch. If it closes, but still doesn't release the lock, the interior panel must be removed to access the lock and latch directly.

2002 Honda Odyssey: sliding door jolts/reopens when closing


Please check the aft track roller assembly. It is easiest to inspect from the rear of the van looking forward when the door is open. You'll see the rear hinge assembly clearly. The track rollers cannot be seen but you can pull outboard on the rear edge of the door--the door should not move outboard more than 1/8 of an inch. If it moves out more than this or feels sloppy, suspect damaged/missing track rollers. This will cause the hinge to chatter in the track and "jolt". It will also cause the door to misalign during the close phase preventing the close motor from properly engaging.
Replacing this part is no easy task but doable if you are good with cars. Check back here for more details if you want to try it, otherwise get a competent mechanic or the Honda dealership to do it.

VW Polo 2001 - Electric Windows wont open from Drivers side..


I removed all 3 switches from driver and passenger door, which is really easy with a flat head screw driver. took them completely apart, very carefully, with a small screwdriver out of a christmas cracker. put them back together again and 2 switches started working, so I put 1 in the drivers side and 1 in the passengers side so now my drivers door window opens and I lean over to open the passenger door. cool, no money spent...yet ;o)

Look in your owners manual there is a procedure to reset the door controls. If that dosen't work maybe the motor is burnt out, it's in the left rear access panel.

All doors open and close with remote except the passenger side ?


Sounds like the most likely cause is the electronic lock actuator is bad. will have to take door panel appart to check.

Climate control panel


These problems are usually caused by a faulty blend door actuator which controls the position of the air mixing door, and in vehicles with more than one air zone (passenger/driver, front/rear, etc.) there will be a door/actuator for each. These electric blend door actuators are self-calibrating - there is a feedback circuit (wiper type potentiometer) that tells your HVAC control the position of the door. It is not unusual for this potentiometer to wear causing loss of signal at various positions, which then will cause erratic movements of the door (if the circuit fails to open circuit or shorting, the door will default to fully open or closed - i.e. hot or cold air only).

Probably a bad door switch or a malfunctioning body control module. If it's an analog problem it could be the door switch (usually driver's side) or a broken wire in the harness going into the door as the constant movement of the harness when opening and closing the door eventually affects the wiring.
