Toyota Sienna Power door - SAME THING

The door cable on mine is doing the same as many others - Jammed up cable no longer functions - had to remove the cable on front and back and will break out the side cutters if toyota can't fix it for cheap or on a recall - SIGN ME UP FOR A CLASS ACTION SUIT !!! They have a tech service bulletin acknowledging the problem but only covering it up to 36,000 miles - but the coating on the cable is fine thru that point - over time it begins harden and break apart - that is what causes the jam (the coating gets stuck in the pulleys / motor

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.

Automatic sliding door on 2004 sienna is broken (cable snapped)


I'm dealing with a similar problem.... I don't have good news for you - Toyota only sells that cable as part of an assembly (just got my estimate today to replace it $2000) thats not a typo. I removed the cable and disabled the power door function - Now it works as a manual door just fine.

These are photos of what I found in my door - I'll have more pics posted soon as to what I did to make the door work soon.

Cable on power sliding door broken...will not operate with power...expensive fix?


We'll
speaking from one that has change SEVERAL of these. If you havent done it
before its a pain in the ****. I have done so many that I can do them in about
30 minutes. You can do it with or without the door on the vehicle.
Personally I do them with the door off. You can't fix the cable if its broke.
The cable has to slide down 2 sets of sliders and in and out of the motor
theres no tolerance for a splice anywheres. I had no idea those motor assy were
that expensive.




The way this is changed is
you remove the door. (disconnect negative on battery, or turn power slide door
button to off) Remove the panel, drop the glass down about a 1/3 the way, pull
the 2 rubber grommets off from inside the mod. Remove 2 10 mm bolts, remove the
back sash on the door and the inside rear window rail, pull the inside rubber
window run slightly out. Slide the old glass out, drop the mod down, remove the
cable assy bolts (4 10mm bolts) , unplug the wiring harness, remove the 2 10mm
bolts atop the rear slide roller, theres also one 10mm inside the door at the
very top near the rear slider. Remove that bolt too, its grey and about 1
1/4" long. You also have the remove the rear latch lock, 3 T30 torks
bolts. Unsnap the cable from the 2 retaining clips and slide the power door
assembly out the bottom of the door. Reverse assembly for the new one. Id
imagine they are charging you about $300-400 labor. Id do it for $100


lol No idea where to get a new one
reasonably tho. Its sad cause I see 1000's of them daily. Ask me how I know
this? I work in offline repair at Toyota Motor
manufacturing Indiana.

Good luck Rob







I agree,
if you don't know what your doing with the new motor your going to shell it out
quicker then you put it on. This is where the dealer comes in handy. I've
replaced a few and from I've seen they usually run around $1100-1200 without
labor

04 toyota sienna xle driver side sliding door not opening


You need a motor assembly for the power door. It comes with the gears and cables all as one assembly. It requires taking apart the sliding door from the inside. Removing the door panel, door glass, window regulator and motor assembly to gain access to the unit. This is not a job for a novice, and can be a costly repair. Check around for the best price from a place that has experience in Toyota sliding doors.
You cannot just replace a broken cable.
