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.

Why isn't my right sliding door not opening or closing


If sliding door is electric, that's where I would start, check the electrical circuits for voltage and ground. If that checks out, the issue may be mechanical?
Your owners manual should give you some operational info for the sliding door.

Driver and Passenger auto door locks are inop.


Sounds like bad wiring, or bad door lock actuators. Check for power while locking/unlocking the doors.

Sliding door will not lock or unlock with remote key or front door panels


I have the same van and the passenger side sliding door stopped locking by the remote or the electrical switch. I took the door panel off for the sliding door and located the door lock solenoid( the locking solenoid was bad). but it was sOOOOOO dificult to remove the door lock solenoid ( and I thought I had every tool) that I had no choice but to put it all back together and tell the wife she needed to take it to the dealership to fix it. I forget how much the part was but the dealer part was suprisingly more expensive than I thought it would be.
