Question about 1998 Toyota Sienna

Open Question

Passenger side manual sliding doors on 98 Sienna will not open

First one door, then 10 minutes later the other door will not budge. Its like they are frozen shut, but its not cold enough. We tried manually unlocking, remote unlocking, opening from inside the van, outside the van, car on, car off...nothing. cannot open either sliding door. I have a similar issue just couple of days back. While I tried to open the sliding door from inside, the switch got pushed inside and didn't popout. I came out through other door and tried to open the problem ones, it never opens thought the switch now back to normal position. I tried locking unlocking throught remote and manual as well, still no luck. I'm googling it all over now, If I find a solution, will post here.

SOURCE: both manual sliding doors on my Toyota Sienna will not open

If you can remove the inner door panel you will see a maze of cables running to the various locking points on the sliding door. If the cable going to the FRONT latch on the sliding door is broken (or in my case, simply dislodged inside the door) the door acts as if it is frozen shut.

The front cable is short, and easily replaced even by a newbie mechanic.

02 Toyota Sienna power sliding door not working


See if power reaches the motor. If it does and motor does not operate you have found the problem. If no power then the issue is electrical in nature and you will have to trace the current flow to the motor.

My electronic passenger side slider is jammed open. It will budge only about an inch or two. I've tried putting on manual, but it still won't budge.


this happened to me too. I had to remove the inside trim/handle cover to access all the levers that open the door. Toward the top of the collection of levers is one that releases the door from the "locked" position. I'm not sure what the permanent fix is for the problem...I still manually release the lever each time I need to open the door.

2005 Toyota Sienna LE Driver Side Power Sliding Door When the door is closed and latched, the motors makes noise, and the door moves the tiniest bit, but it doesn't open. The same happens in the fully...


Try this... it fixed my problem whereby the 2005 Toyota Sienna passenger sliding door would sometimes open and sometimes not, yet I could hear the motor trying to open/close it. It cost me 20 minutes and 10 drops of oil, not $1200.

First, get the door open. It took me two weeks of constant trying, but it finally opened.

Next, remove the plastic covering of the inside door handle this way: locate the two screws on the forward edge of the sliding door near the child-safety switch: (the switch is a small lever near the door latch, on the forward edge of the door) loosen and remove the two phillips screws, one above the child-safety latch, and one below.

Remove the plastic cover to expose the gears for the door open/close mechanism.

There's a bunch of intricate plastic and metal parts in there, all coated with white grease. I used some 3-n-1 oil to lubricate everything in there thoroughly, In my case, there was one part that was a little void of grease, hence it "stuck" occasionally.

Test the system. If it's Okay, replace the plastic cover, and re-install the screws.

Now my Toyota Sienna 2005 door never fails to open or close.

Our passenger side power sliding door doesn't open


Check out the wiring. Sounds like something is loose or the switch may be going bad.

I have a sicna 03 sliding door on passenger side


DO NOT PUSH IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
1. turn off the power button for the power sliding doors located on the lower dash area.
(in for on out for off)
2. close the sliding doors
3. disconect the battery and wait 1 minute.
4. reconect the battery, turn on the power switch
5. use one of the door control buttons open and close the door this should reset the door.

If this fails to get it working i'm sorry but you will need to take it to a dealer.
and most likly it will need a new drive $3000 aproxmatly. it can not be serviced

2004 toyota sienna sliding door locking trouble


Sounds like something isn't right.Try to disconnect the battery for a few minutes and see if that helps.Some times the ecu gets haywired and disconnecting the battery might reset it.And if it is the original battery you might want to get it tested.
