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.

Replace the wire harness/track assembly in the lower door opening. It plugs in behind the B pillar and runs down through the trough to the door. They have a history of failing with all the movement they encounter with the door opening and closing.

Dodge caravan sliding passenger door will not repond


There are contacts in the door jam, first check and clean these contacts. If they seem fine, and you have a way to check for power on these, test and make sure they supply voltage with a volt/ohm meter. If you are getting power through the contacts, that only leaves the lock actuator itself as being faulty.

Sliding doors will not unlock or lock with remote or inside buttons. does not automatically lock with other doors when 15 mph is reached. both doors do open and shut when already unlocked using remote.


On each door there is a connection that senses when the door is closed. If this sensor is dirty, then it will impact the locking of the door. You should also inspect your fuse panel for blown fuses

Passenger sliding door will not lock or unlock with button or remote will only lock manually by hand.


It sound as if the soenoid has failed within the door, possible bad wire too. You'll need to investigate this within the door.
I hope this may have helped,

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.
