SOURCE: 2006 town and country passanger sliding door problem

I've leased two Town and Country vans over the past 4 years, and actually purchased the latest one after the lease. In both vans the sliding doors, normally the drivers side, reacted teh same way. If the door was closed it would open, stop a one point, and then return to the open position. At times I could get it close. But over time the doors stoped working all together.

It is not due to the switch or the motor. Most cases like this (in in both of mine) it is due to the repetitive use of that door, and the realitive inflexibility of the wire harness. Over time, and with more uses (in my case the driver side sliding door was used alot) the wire in the harness fails. Picture it as a willow branch. One snapped off of a tree it first is green and flexible, and bends pretty well into any form. But over time, with age and repetitive bending, it will break.

The only recourse is a new harness, as the wire/wires are broken somewhere in the harness (the belt chain in the lower track of the door). I was temped to take it apart and try to repair it myself, but as the parts were under warranty (I have the extended 85,000 mile), I opted to have the professionals handle it. The repair without the warranty is under $200 typically (parts and labor). Good luck.

What would cause my rear doors to not come open


Hi i can only assume you mean the doors wont open from the inside. If thats your issue, open the door from the outside, look very close around the latch on the or br the latch and youll see a little metal slide "switch"slide it the other way then close the door and see if it now opens. Thats a child safety mechmanism to keep the kids from opening the door. Hope that helps.

How do I remove the rear tailgate inner panel so i can replace the wiper motor and sort out an annoying rattle??


Most door panels have push lock retainers you just have to pull the panel off by prying around the edge. they make a special tool for this but you can use a flat screwdriver just pry close to the plastic pins under the panel

2000 gran marquis door closes but rattles like it is not fully closed. Is there an adjusment?


There's a catch that's bolted onto the door frame of the car. Loosen up the bolts and adjust the catch, re tighten the bolts and check. This may take a couple of try's before you find the best position to eliminate any slop so the door secures without any rattles. Check the latch on the door for wear, this may also contribute to the door rattling if you're unsuccessful after making an adjustment on the catch.

How do you adjust the tail gate to stop the annoying rattle when driving?


Most rattles are due to the back door not closing tight enough. There is a lock/striker that the door lock assembly latches to. Usually the striker/latch is bolted to the rear floor/bumper area and the screws/bolts securing it can be loosened and the striker/latch moved forward and retightened which in turn will cause the door to be tighter stopping any rattles. You may also have a rattle inside the door assembly itself or loose paneling causing this issue

My 96 windstar sliding door rattles when I hit bumps.also I tab it through a carwash and it leaks water like a faucet. I checked the rollers and hinge bolts and nothing appeared to be loose or missing! Any...


I think the solution to your problem is to check the condition of the sealing rubbers as their use is to seal out water and load up the door slides to reduce the rattles.. The same as if the door rubbers around the drivers door are missing the door rattles against the lock plate.

I had the dealership address the rattling of the sliding passenger door on our 2002 Honda Odyssey. The removed the inner panel and adjusted the door striker which didn't stop the rattle. Any suggestions...


The sliding door has upper roller, lower roller, and center roller mechanisms. These rollers can become damaged and rattle in their respective tracks. The upper and lower rollers are easy to inspect, as they are at the front of the door (top and bottom) and in plain sight. But the center roller cannot be inspected until the center rail cover (an exterior narrow long panel) is removed.

To remove the center rail cover, first remove the tail light assembly on the affected side. (That procedure can be found by doing a fixya search for "2002 Honda Odyssey brake light replacement"). Now open the sliding door. Notice at the front of the rail cover there is a small bolt. Remove this bolt. Go to the back of the center rail cover and remove the two screws (only accessible when tail light assembly is removed). Then slide the center rail cover rearward to remove it. Now you will be able to inspect the center roller mechanism and door cables. Look carefully for damaged rollers which will let the door wobble in the center track and rattle.

How do these rollers get damaged? When kids climb onto the doors and "slide along". The door guide rollers and latches were not designed to carry much more weight than the door itself.

The doors on my ford excursion rattle. how do I


You will have to loosen the striker and slide back, move back in small amounts until door is tight. also make sure its not something inside the door rattling before adjusting the striker.
