Question about 2006 Dodge Caravan
Van has power door locks and ONE of the sliding doors suddenly will not lock or unlock with the switch or remote. It will only work manually. This is NOT a power sliding door - only the lock is power. Thank you for any suggestions as to how to repair.
I have replaced many sliding door lock actuators on these vehicles..dealer part..mostly on passenger side sliding door..also possible you have a broken wire in door track harness..follow wiring from door into what looks like a plastic chain in door track at door opening

Actually this sounds like the actuator inside the door is to blame. Basically a small motor/gearbox assembly tied to the door lock mechanism. I had one die under warranty. Same symptoms you described. The dealership changed it, charging 0.2 hours of labor against the warranty. Basically, remove the inside trim panel from the door, unbolt/disconnect the old actuator, and install the replacement.

First, keep in mind that as you begin to remove these doors you run the risk of causing serious scratches to the paint and glass, so put some masking tape and/or plastic sheeting around both sides of the door (rear quarter panel and rear glass, front door and front door glass)
I would get a Haynes repair guide since that's what I have to work from and it will tell you step by step with pictures, what to do. It's not hard, but you need to get all of the attach points unhooked to be successful. Suggest you have a helper working with you to keep the door steady.
