Question about 2011 Chrysler Town and Country

1 Answer

Rear door Our rear door is sliding to an almost closed position, then it hits the bottom of our van and pops back open. I'm wondering if we have had our ac fixed if they remove the doors to fix the a.c.? We had to take it to the same shop 5 times for the same problem and I'm wondering if this service department messed up my door while fixing my rear a.c. is that a possibility?

Anything is Possible, asking them if they adjusted the door during the Service would be my first step. If not, ask them to adjust the door to ensure proper alignment.

SOURCE: 2006 town and country passanger sliding door problem

I've leased two Town and Country vans over the past 4 years, and actually purchased the latest one after the lease. In both vans the sliding doors, normally the drivers side, reacted teh same way. If the door was closed it would open, stop a one point, and then return to the open position. At times I could get it close. But over time the doors stoped working all together.

It is not due to the switch or the motor. Most cases like this (in in both of mine) it is due to the repetitive use of that door, and the realitive inflexibility of the wire harness. Over time, and with more uses (in my case the driver side sliding door was used alot) the wire in the harness fails. Picture it as a willow branch. One snapped off of a tree it first is green and flexible, and bends pretty well into any form. But over time, with age and repetitive bending, it will break.

The only recourse is a new harness, as the wire/wires are broken somewhere in the harness (the belt chain in the lower track of the door). I was temped to take it apart and try to repair it myself, but as the parts were under warranty (I have the extended 85,000 mile), I opted to have the professionals handle it. The repair without the warranty is under $200 typically (parts and labor). Good luck.

Take a look at end of door where latch is & post where the 2 meet when closed. Look for round metal button/contacts, about 1/2" in diameter. If you look close, they should line up to make contact with each other when door is closed. Take some fine steel wool (preferred) or fine sandpaper and scuff them up until you see metal is clean on both surfaces. Now try it, and let me know what happens.

SOURCE: passenger side power sliding door stops part way

Had the same problem on ours. It stopped about 6 inches away from being closed. I could advance it and press the button, and it worked. About two weeks later it stopped working altogether. I had a black wire that was cut through. Trace the wires inside the black plastic wire mold track that looks like a tank tread. You might be able to see the cut. There are about 5-6 wires inside the track. Undo the wiring harness where the wire mold attaches to the sliding door gear. If you get a lighted 12vDC pencil tester (~$5), press the door button so it opens, and poke one of the wires in the wiring harness. If it lights, the connection is still fine. If it doesn't light work a little further back until the light comes back on, and some point in between is the cut. Using a flat head screwdriver, you can snap off the links of the wire track mold. They just snap back on with a firm grip.I resoldered the wires and some electrical tape.

I realized that when it was stopping part way the ends of the wires just happened to touch and allowed it to move, but when the door got so far the wire track had to bend separating the connection. The repair has been working for about 4-5months now.

SOURCE: Chrysler T&C Power Door Problem

If it stops in roughly the same spot every time, and won't respond after it has stopped, it sounds like a broken wire. It is likely losing its electrical current to run the motor. It should be right where the track bends when the door has stopped. Check for loose or frayed wiring inside the flexible plastic track just below the door. The wires will often wear after being bent over and over again. If you find a broken bit of wire, cut out that section and splice in a new length of wire. Be sure you do a good job splicing, or you may end up with the same issue again soon. I am not a mechanic by any means, this just makes sense to me, and I'm considering buying an 01 town and country with this issue, which is why I'm on this site to begin with. Best of luck -

The van was hit on the back passenger side resulting in a dent . The open door light along with the interior lights flashed when I hit a bump. I hear something that sounds like a fan continuosly blowing....


I think this may be the "closer" motor continuously trying to gain a positive latch--and unable to do so. This could be from a damaged latch switch.

The sliding door has three motors, a slide motor, a release (or unlatch) motor, and a closer (or latching) motor. The open door light and interior lights coming on seem to indicate that the "closed and latched" switch is sometimes open-- allowing the closer motor to continue to operate.

Another possibility is that the dent has changed the geometry of the door mechanism especially the draw of the pull cable. The slide motor has a sensor that pulses when it runs. The door management controller counts the number of pulses of the slide motor sensor to determine when the door is fully closed and then stops the slide motor. At that point, the closer motor operates to latch the door. If the cable geometry has changed, the door controller may be shutting off the slide motor prematurely and the closer motor cannot complete the latch.

Slide door doesnt open from ouside


If the latch works but the door seems to be jammed, take a look at the bottom rear corner of the door. do you have the factory cladding and/or running boards on the van? If so, the bottom rear corner of the door is likely to be hitting the cladding where it wraps around into the bottom of the opening. Go inside the van and with a helper on the outside pulling the door open, push against the door to open it. Next, look at the cladding where it wraps around into the door opening. You will probably see where there is some wear to the paint, but not necessarily. What you need to do is ease the cladding towards the rear of the vehicle. Think of it as sliding it backwards along the body. it doesn't take much, only about a millimeter or two. I used a screwdriver against the cladding where it interfered, and nudged it with the BFH. It worked beautifully for about 6 months, at which time I just did it again.

My power sliding door doesn't open fully. It makes clicking sound and a somewhat of a jerking motion. It open or closes slighty but the entire it makes the above mentioned noises. Any help would be...


I'm not sure about the noise, but the jerking motion might be because your the center roller (located in the rear middle of the sliding door) has worn out and need to be replace. This is a will known problem.

Your problem is very hard to answer because 05-10 odyssey has so many problem with sliding door.

center roller:
-jerking motion when opening
-door kick back close while opening

Door motor:
-door not to work
-cause door to jam

Need to replace inside door handle that broke completely off. How do I replace this section?


you will need to remove the cover around the handle they are easy to brake from the inside of the outside cover ring go from the inside with a small screw driver and slide between and pry the cover up it has 4 mounting points top left top bottom right and left.
next pop off the switch from the front slide a screwdriver at the front leading edge and push it towards the back of the door panel and lift gently there is a flange on the rear of it that holds the rear of the assembly down dont pry up on the back lift the front and slide it forward unplug all the wires. remove the two screws inside the door arm rest where you pull the door shut. the cup to close the door. next you need to remove the mirror cover at the front top of the door panel slide a screwdriver pry
straight out. using a door panel clip tool. slide under the panel at the bottom rear corner to find the clip and pry the clip out of the hole. work your way around the door to each clip. sometimes you can pull the panel off with your hands but if you are not experirenced you might break some clips or the door panel be nice to it dont break things. all the way around the sides and the bottom are released then pull away from the door and hold the bottom and lift up and hit the top of the door handle with your hand so the clips will release accross the top. remove the light socket from the rear bottom of the door. place the panel somewhere so you dont scratch it up. now remove the rivet from the handle. I punch the center out then use a sharp chisel to punch it off. you may want to drill the rivet. up to you. then the handle slides forward and you have to disconnect the linkage clips from the handle. install the new handle make sure the lock rod is in the hole that slides the lock. hook up the linkages new slide back in position and rivet then reverse the prosess of removing the handle

The sliding door does not function properly. It automatically closes but sometimes it goes back to an open position.


If you put the van in drive before the door slides fully shut, it will open again. I have a dodge van, and it does the same thing. Crazy design!

2005 Toyota Sienna XLE - Automatic sliding door not closing.


This may or may not work depending on exactly what is wrong with the door, I cant tell what is wrong without looking at it directly however:
You can try starting with all doors closed and unlocked, keys in hand disconnecting the battery and letting the vehicle sit for 2 min or so, then reconnect the battery. Put the key into the ignition and turn it to the on position but do not start the van. Next press the button to disable the power sliding door for the drivers side, then manually open the door fully, wait 5 seconds, then close it manually fully. Press button the button again to re-enable the power sliding door, then try to use it with the automatic feature either by pulling the handle or using your remote, this may or may not work depending on if the door has somehow become de-initialized (it should work now) however if something is broken inside the door closing mechanism or door closed/open sensors, the door will continue to malfunction.

If you haven't already solved this, Start at the rear corner light. Next to the liftgate there are two plastic covers to open with a flat screwdriver. Remove the two phillips screws and pull light straight back firmly to remove the light. Let it hang. Remove the two phillips screws holding the metal track cover behind the light on the side of the van. Open the door, and remove one track cover screw with a 10 mm socket at front of cover looking back in door jam. Close door and slide track back about an inch and then pull straight out from the side of the van revealing slider track. Hope this helped

Power sliding doors on mini van opens but start closing as soon as it gets to the full open position you have to push on it to get it to stop, a small child might get stuck.


If the door opens up right away that generally means there is debris is in the bottom where the door slides on by the roller track. If the driver side door does not open electrically the fuel lid is not centered. The lid has a switch on it.
