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.

It is your power steering pump. The solution is to replace the P/S fluid resevoir and fill or flush the system.

Jun 17, 2009- ok I just looked at it. it is simple.
the lens pivots and presses a switch in on one end to make the light come on. take a butter knife or very small screw driver and reach in between the lens and the black center console. there you will CAREFULLY press a flat tab to the side that is made onto the lens ( I hope you dont break this tab).
on the very opposite position on the clear lens towards the door is where the lens has a tab that has a small hole in it. there is a plastic pin made onto the console trim that fits into this hole so the lens will pivot. this will give you an idea of which direction to pull the lens when you press in the tab,. it does look like it would break easily. I havent had to take mine off yet thankfully.
please visit again and rank this answer if this helps!... good luck

I just had mine fixed at the dealer for the same problem. Their first response to me was "this happens ALL THE TIME". He said there is a little plastic pin in the door handle assembly and the pin has been known to slip out of the assembly. However, when they got inside, they said it was the actual door handle (inside) that was broken and had to replace the whole piece. So, the first step according to my dealer/servicer would be to check for the little plastic pin.
