    We just had the same thing occur. Got two estimates from dealers the first one was 1054.00 the second was over 1300.00. Weird that this would happen to both of us, the service guy told me he had never seen this before, of coarse!

    I bought a Sienna in 2005. New. My brother did also. These are my problems. The tires Dunlop at 20,000 look like they are 5 years old. At 45,000 the driver door makes a popping noise like all the other siennas. My brothers also. At 15,000 miles the belts start making noise. My brothers also. And at 45,000 the transmition when going slow jerks. If you put regular gas the engine rattles. At 60,000 I am selling it and buying a Honda. Toyota never sent me information about anything so I will try another van. Good bye Toyota.

You need a motor assembly for the power door. It comes with the gears and cables all as one assembly. It requires taking apart the sliding door from the inside. Removing the door panel, door glass, window regulator and motor assembly to gain access to the unit. This is not a job for a novice, and can be a costly repair. Check around for the best price from a place that has experience in Toyota sliding doors.
You cannot just replace a broken cable.

SOURCE: 2005 Toyota Sienna XLE - Automatic sliding door not closing.

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.

Fix 2007 toyota sienna 2007 sliding door


Your question is too vague about the "problem". Is it alignment, latching, locking, handle, etc.? Try looking at the following links:

or http://www.siennachat.com/forum/66-problems-maintenance-repair/1300-sienna-power-sliding-door-problems-thread.html
hopefully you will find a solution there.

Both manual sliding doors on my Toyota Sienna will not open


If you can remove the inner door panel you will see a maze of cables running to the various locking points on the sliding door. If the cable going to the FRONT latch on the sliding door is broken (or in my case, simply dislodged inside the door) the door acts as if it is frozen shut.

The front cable is short, and easily replaced even by a newbie mechanic.

Rear Door Handle Broken


I had the same problem, and here is the solution:
http://www.findonefindall.com/toyota-sienna/siennareardoor.htm

It includes step-by-step instructions and photos. I printed it and headed to the garage. I while later (hours actually) it was fixed. I did end up going to the hardware store and buying the EXACT size screw they recommend. I went with a screw rather than a nut and bolt. Worked fine.
