Question about Cars & Trucks
Suddeny, ONE sliding door decided not to close properly, immediately opening again when closed. Local dealer wants $500 to replace a "switch" to correct the problem.
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.

this can be stuck contacts on the door. better to check the sliding contact point for any dirt debris on the slide or it may need some lubricant for easily sliding.

I have a 2006 SV6 with the power sliding doors. The problem that I found was with the contacts on the door ( They are called plungers) the movable pins were losing connection with the fixed part The plunger is very easy to replace if you can find one. The plungers are covered with a rubber cover and is held in place with 2 plastic pins. My Pontiac dealer could not even find one in his books or even a picture of one, and claimed that he had never had anyone come with a door problem. My Chevy dealer said that it came with a wiring harness that is not needed for $154. The cure that I came up with was to take the plunger block apart (it snaps together)and replace the rusted out springs then solder 3" wires to the end of the plunger pins (they solder easy) to the tabs that go to the plug(pop out the tabs or you will melt the plastic. It took about 45 min. now the doors work like new and will never loose contact again
