Passenger Side Sliding Door Lock is not working

When you try to lock or unlock the passenger side sliding door with the remote or the buttons on the front door panels it does not work. the only way to lock or unlock it is to use the manual lock on the inside of the passenger sliding door. It has been suggested this could be the accuator?? Any ideas? Is this a reasonable "do it yourself fix"?

SOURCE: Sliding door lock

If you check the doorlock actuator it is more than likely bad. On my caravan I had to replace actuators on both sliders. Cannot get correct actuators at autoparts stores. Either go to a salvage yard or to the dealer to get them.

Driver door lock doesn t work


You need to test the parts. Does the switch have continuity when actuated? If yes, check the wires for continuity. Will the actuator work when you apply power directly to it? If yes, test the wiring.

All my remotes won't unlock passenger doors, why?


this is a problem that can appear after your car battery died, cause the car didn't reset propely, so taking the battery out and putting it back in or letting your car die again would do the trick. I tried a lot of reprogramming procedured for my remote key, none of them worked, what did the trick though was simply unlocking the doors via the all door unlock button on the passenger side door, so simple.

If it´s the passenger side where the gas tank fill is, there is a automatic safety device that locks the sliding door, that prevents to open the door while filling gas, be sure that the folding cover of the gas tank is fully closed and nothing is jammed inside

Two of my door locks will not unlock w/ remote or inside button.


The door lock actuators or 'solenoids' have failed. This seems to be pretty common on Windstars - I've just replaced a couple on my '02. (Ironically, the original batteries in the remote fobs are still going strong, they lasted longer than the actuators). You can buy third party replacement parts, the front door ones are 'handed' driver & passenger, but a common part will work for both sliding doors. I don't have instructions for removing the door panels, but search online - it's not tricky. The original actuators are riveted in place - you'll need to drill out these rivets. The new actuator can be held in place with a nut, bolt & couple of washers. Replacing these parts isn't too difficult - the first one took me about 1.5 hours, but once I knew what I was doing, the second one took about 0.5 hours. Good luck.
