Question about 2006 Ford Freestar

1 Answer

Sliding door stuck partially open

My driver side sliding door of my 2006 Ford Freestar will not open or close. It is stuck in the poition of partially open and the door chime is continuous. When I pull on the inside handle it doesn't feel like it is attached to anything. Any idea on how to get the panel off so I can get a look on the inside of the door. The only screw is directly behind the handle itself and all that does is remove the plastic face behind the handle. I imagine it just takes some forceful prying, but I don't wnat to wreck it unnecessarily. Jeff McDonald jeff-mcdonald@telus.net

You would get to the door mechanism from inside the car. Yes the handle inside will have a screw or two. The inside paneling is held on with hidden poppers. The plastic of these will be brittle by now so you will break some pulling it off. You can get a sort of mini crowbar with a handle for leavering these off. Inside you will find the door sealed with polythene stuck down with sticky glue, peal that back to get to the mechanism. You will be able to operate the rods and whatnot. I expect a rod has fallen off.

SOURCE: how to remove front driver side door panel (2000 ford expedition)

There is a triangular piece, at top corner, covering a screw behind the mirror. Remove that screw. Remove the piece that covers the handle and remove the screw holding the handle to the door. Look through, where door handle was and remove another screw just above where the handle was. This screw is holding the panel to the actual door. Pop the cover off for the automatic door locks and disconnect them. Lift the panel in an upward direction.

SOURCE: rear window will not operate,

Try to locate the relay center, usually located under the hood or sometimes in the trunk. In your case, possibly an access panel in the back. Once you locate the relay center, look at the inside of the cover that you removed. There is usually a diagram of the relays and what they are used for.

1. Look for the relay that has any thing to do with the windows.
2. Locate another relay in the same panel that has the same part number.
3. Switch that relay with the one for the windows.
4. Try to operate the window.

If the window now operates, then replace the relay as soon as possible. If it doesn't, then look for another fuse panel. They can be in a number of different locations, in the glove box, under the dash, inside the kick panels just in front of the doors and in the trunk. Try the same thing with the fuses if you find a bad one. I hope this information has been helpful. Thank you for using Fixya.com.

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."

2006 ford freestar driver side power window not working all of a sudden. Was working fine today and then just stopped working.


Wiggle the wiring harness going in the door between the door jam by the hinges, and toggle the switch and see if it works, normally wires brake with the door opening and closing.

Power sliding door won't close properly on 2005 Freestar


U will need to buy a can of spray white grease and clean and then lubricate all the tracks the door channels on as well as all the latches for the door, this will cure the issue in most cases, did allot of these while working at a Ford dealer.
