Re: Power side power on 2000 sienna van does not work
Sounds like the switch in the door, that tells the car the door is closed, is not working or broken. It may be inside the door or on the door frame. It looks like a button or a slide button that when the door closes, it's supposed to close on this button and shut off the interior lights and turn off the dash light. The doors probably won't lock because it thinks the door is open with the keys in the ignition. Electrical systems are never cheap to fix and they can cost a lot of time just to figure out exactly what's wrong and where. I hope this helps.

Chances are its a door switch or the wiring close to it. the wires bend every time you open and close the door. Check for that but if your dead set on a relay. look under the hood you should find a relay panel on the left(drivers side) finder well. On the cover of the panel box will be a listing and placement for all the relays
this problem can only be diagnos bya a dealer specific scan tool, so they can go into a body computer and run a check, there a presure sensitive switches, but before you going into any dealer make sure all seals are clean of soda, coffe or any spills, also at point of contact with body,
One more thing hope this will help you: close all doors unlocked and remove your negative cable from battery, live it off couple minutes....reconec then turn on power door swith and press open door switch and hold it until door opens completly, then press to close it and hold switch until door is completly close, reset done Good Luck hope this help,
I got this problem with my 2001 Sienna too. The Toyota deal said the computer BD is bad. They charge me about $350 to replace with a new one. However, the new parts is in shortage. They said lots of back order for it!
I have the same problem with my 2000 Sienna.Probably window motor will need replacement. Frustrating. Turns out I have a lot of the same wear and tear issues with my Sienna as others. Automatic door sticks open or continually pops open, snapped rear hatch, tire pressure sensor always on. C'mon Toyota, I hope your newer models are more robust. FYI we take VERY good care of our van.
This may or may not work depending on exactly what is wrong with the door, I cant tell what is wrong without looking at it directly however: You can try starting with all doors closed and unlocked, keys in hand disconnecting the battery and letting the vehicle sit for 2 min or so, then reconnect the battery. Put the key into the ignition and turn it to the on position but do not start the van. Next press the button to disable the power sliding door for the drivers side, then manually open the door fully, wait 5 seconds, then close it manually fully. Press button the button again to re-enable the power sliding door, then try to use it with the automatic feature either by pulling the handle or using your remote, this may or may not work depending on if the door has somehow become de-initialized (it should work now) however if something is broken inside the door closing mechanism or door closed/open sensors, the door will continue to malfunction.

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.
