Question about 2005 Mercedes-Benz Vaneo 1.6

Open Question

I have a Mercedes Vaneo, there seems to be a problem with the offside passenger sliding door. There are 4 contacts which connects to 4 plates when the door is closed, but the bottom pin seems loose and can be turned, unlike the other pins. This causes a clunking solenoid sound when driving along and the internal cabin light goes on and off, is this pin the problem, and how can I fix it ?

Either a bad ground, or a relay at fault, most likely a bad ground wire from the steering column.

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.

VW Touran 7- seater offside passenger door will not open

I've had this problem 3 times now. 1st time I persisted with repeated attempts, mallet blows, and got it open. I thought the problem was dodgy soldering on the circuit board by the window winder motor, resoldered what looked marginal, and it seemed ok for a while. BUT it has happened twice more, so maybe my fix was not a fix. No amount of switching or vibration would get it open. What worked in the end was disconnecting the battery and connecting a battery charger in its place. This gave the car about 15.5V and worked quickly. I assume the extra volts gave a bit more ooomph to the solenoid or whatever to get it working properly. Not a fix of course, but it's working for now. Got a new lock mechanism but haven't managed to work out how to fit it yet.

2002 dodge dakota 4 door when opening driver door there is no interior light comeing on but they do come on if you open the other three doors also my door remote will not work have changed the batteries...

I do not believe the two are related. The switch on the drivers door that activates the inside light is comprized of two sliding metal plates. one plate is connected to ground, the other is connected to a wire that goes to your inside light. After a number of years rust and or dirt wil build up between the two sliding plates causing the connection to ground to go open. Take it apart, clean it with sandpaper and reinstall. If you have access to a multimeter, put the ohm meter on the X10 scale and look for zero ohms when switch is activated. You could just buy a new switch.

Sometimes if you happen to drop your door remote the tiny circuit board inside can dislodge. Clean the contacts with an eraser and plug it back in. It's also a good idea to clean the contacts on occasion. Let me know how you make out.
