Hi my name is Peter, Is there any resistance on the door handle or does it move more freely than before? A lot of the time when something like this happens the door handle or a piece of he linkage inside the door has broken or come loose for the mechanical portion but the electrical is still functional. If the handle moves freely you may want to take the door panel off and get a better look but be careful where you put your fingers because if the electrical can still get voltage back there you may accidently activate it with you disconnect the positive side of the battery to be safe might be good idea. Depending on how popular the vehicle is and the age of it you may be able to get a replacement handle if you need one at a local parts store. If not then of course u could check online or hit the dealers parts counter.. I just replace a handle on my sons extended cab truck because the handle broke inside but I was lucky and only had two bolts to take loose lifted it out of the frame and installed the new one from Advanced auto in about 10-15 minutes. Good luck let me know what you find.

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.

SOURCE: Rear Door Handle Broken

I had the same problem, and here is the solution:
http://www.findonefindall.com/toyota-sienna/siennareardoor.htm

It includes step-by-step instructions and photos. I printed it and headed to the garage. I while later (hours actually) it was fixed. I did end up going to the hardware store and buying the EXACT size screw they recommend. I went with a screw rather than a nut and bolt. Worked fine.

SOURCE: The sliding door handles of my 1998 Toyota Sienna have both broken.

I replaced both of my sliding door handles this weekend. It was actually pretty easy. Cheapest I could find the handles was a little over $70 each. The interior panel is held on with one screw and 10 nylon clips. The one screw is in the cup holder. Put you hand in the cup holder and push out at the bottom. It pops right off exposing the one screw. I started on the clips from the top at a corner. Seemed to be the easiest place to slide a screw driver under. Once I got the screw driver in, I started working my fingers under the panel. The clips run mostly along the top and bottom about 6 inches from the edge. I made an effort to apply the force as close to the clips as I could to reduce flexing the panel. Once I got the first clip to pop out the other followed pretty easy and the panel lifted right off. Carefully peel back the plastic barrier. The exterior handle is held on with two 10mm bolts. Connecting the short cable was pretty obvious once you could see everything. Now I have to teach everyone to open the side doors very gently! Hope this helps.

You have a sticking fuel door lock-device. Look to see if the tab is in the down position.

How to remove sliding door inside panel of Mazda MPV


1. Work with slider in open position. It helps if you are on a slight incline so that door stays in fully-open position and won't slam shut on your fingers.
2. Remove inner handles and door panel:
a) Inner handle. Remove the inner handle first. You can't see it too easily but a wire clip about the same thickness as a large paper clip holds the handle to its shaft. It's shaped like an upside down "U" so it needs to be pushed straight up. Press the panel outward around the handle and you can just see the clip. Use a small thin screwdriver to locate the bottom tips of the clip and push it up. You may have to alternate from side to side but it will pop off. Grab it with a pair of needlenose pliers if you have to. The door handle willl now slide off - just pull it towards you.
b) Power window switch. Remove power window button by squeezing hidden tabs along the sides of the button. Again, you may have to push the panel outward a little and pry the switch to see the tabs. Wiggle it a little and the button will release. Pull it out and unplug the wiring harness.
c) Door panel. There are several plastic buttons which hold the panel on at the bottom and up the sides. Use a plastic putty knife to get behind panel and pop it out of the holes.
3. Once all trim fasteners are released, grab the door panel at the bottom and pull straight up to release it at the top. You may have to give it a quick upward tug to get it to release. Push the power window button wires through the mounting hole. Look at the panel buttons to make sure that all of them came off with the panel. If not, remove the remaining ones from the door and put them in their respective slots on the door panel. (Trying to re-attach the panel without the buttons installed on the panel will be frustrating.)
4. Outer handle removal.
a) Unclip the handle lock button / bar by turning the small tab and pulling the bar out of its slot. Hard to describe here but you'll figure it out once you see it.
b) Remove three bolts which hold the handle on the door. Note that one bolt is accessible from the outside of the door along the front jamb.
Replace handle and reverse the steps above.

Notes: Check the locking mechanism and make sure the door opens and closes before you reassemble the panel. Remember to orient the inner handle the right way before you re-attach its spring clip. (I've attached it upside down and it won't work!!!) . Also, be sure to feed the power window wiring harness back through the mounting hole before putting the panel back on.

I have the Chevy Astro AWD 1998 passenger van with the three part rear door (tilt up window and then split half doors). The handle broke off of the right side primary door. Is there a way to get the door...


just take off the inside panel and look inside the should be some tiny silver bars that either pull up or go side to side, then pull that should open it. also you can get to the handle from the inside access and replace from an auto parts store

Driver side exterior door handle pulls the locking mech. down when the handle is lifted. can open if 1)time lifting the handle with pressing the fob button just right, or 2) someone holds down the unlock...


Take the door panel off the inside of the door. (Should involve screws at the bottom, plus bolts through the interior handle. Then pull out at the bottom, and lift upward Google for expedition door panel removal for more specifics if needed).

It sounds like the exterior handle linkage is binding against the lock button linkage. Actually looking in while pulling the handle would confirm. You then should be able to just bend the rods a bit to move them apart.

Have you been replacing the handles with aftermarket replacements made in China. If so, spend the extra $$ to get the parts from a GM dealer. They obviously break too but perhaps not as easily.

Drivers side door, not opening


VERY common issue.. the handle being replaced is ok.. but the actual metal rod that connects it to the latch needs bent a little to make it more responsive, what happens is over time this rod (which is bent slightly) will straighten, and the operator pulls harder on the handle which eventually brakes.. then replacing the handle will solve it for a while, until the trend repeats itself... VERY common, I have fixed hundreds in the shop so far...
