Electric door won't stay closed. It closes and then reopens itself. How to fix?

Check the Door connections.
Tests/Procedures: 1. Access and inspect the right power sliding door contact switch for contamination, alignment and/or damaged terminals of the contact and address it as needed.

2. Check the circuits of the right sliding door contact switch on the door side of the contact for a potential open or short running between the contact switch and detent switch connections and address the circuits as needed.

3. Check the signal of the detent switch with an ohmmeter by measuring resistance between the contact terminals 1 and 3 on the door side of the sliding contact switch. When thedoor handle is operated, the ohmmeter should indicating momentary continuity. The door handle should only need to be moved in 10 degree increments to the value of the detent switch to change.

Driver side sliding door on 04 freestar van non power wont open after opening and closing the fuel door

There is obviously a switch on the fuel door that prevents the sliding door from operating while the fuel door is open. Look for that switch and spray some electrical cleaner (or even "Brake Kleen" from an auto parts store). Both evaporate quickly without leaving residue. The switch is probably "gunky."

Electric sliding passenger door of Toyota Raum won't open when front door is closed either by pulling handle or pushing switch on dashboard.

Although the attached video is for a Toyota Sienna, the basic troubleshooting and repair is somewhat the same...and one-way this d.i.y. chose to tackle the problem himself. I do recommend purchasing or downloading a service repair manual specific to your vehicle for added tech support and will be a helpful resource should other mechanical issues arise.

Power sliding door pontiac montana

Check to make sure there is no rocks and or dirt in the track path, spray WD40 or other lube on the rollers and moving parts.
Most of the time these will be the fix, however, the switch could be bad. You may wish to shop around for a more affordable repair shop! There mite be two electrical contacts on the door and pillar, will look like two metal buttons, clean all these contacts.
Good luck!

Side door won't open with electric switch

Check the fuse, if it's blown, replace it. Check the switch as well. If this was at all helpful, please rate. Thanks for asking.

Very complicated discription , hard to understand if you are not a mechanic.
But anyway , sounds like a bad door switch , I don't remember if it's separate switch or it is part of a door lock. Most likely part of a door lock.
Start from checking door wire harness(broken wire) between door and the body (door opens and closes , harness bends back and forht).
If it's ok , check door locks.
The light doesn't go off because it doesn't see door closed , same reason for glass , won't close up.

2001 Toyota Sienna r.h. sliding door ''rear latch switch'' location

To start, the noun "''rear latch switch'' is incorrect. It's actually called "Slide Door Lock". It's located on page BO-20 of the Toyota Repair Manual for the 2001 Sienna. There are two door locks on one sliding door. One in the front and one in the rear. Obviously, you want the one in the rear. The location for the "Slide Door Lock" (which also contains an electric switch) is in the rear of the sliding door located mid way up door. You can see (sliding door opened from the back) it without dissembling the door. And, the lock is made up of plastic (dirty white in color).

My 2000 Honda Odyssey minivan's automatic sliding door on the driver side has stopped working. The passenger side works fine. The fuse is good. I tried a reset process posted online involving removing the...

I had a 2002 Odyssey with the same problem. I cleaned around the micro switch at the bottom rear of the door and checked the door roller bracket screws. The screws were loose so I tightened them and also sprayed the switch with electrical contact cleaner (special stuff that leaves no residue). Apparently this helped the contacts in the switch to close properly and the door was able to reset and work. Good luck.
