My door also had the same problem: It would only open a few inches, then it would stop. Moving it manually one more inch and trying again would make it go all the way. In my case, this was due to the wire harness being bent in a certain way right at that point (and the wires being broken there).

First make sure that the door moves smoothly over the location where it stops by moving it manually. If it's hung up on something, try to find it. In my case the door itself moves very smoothly all along the path with just a finger (or two) pushing it.

I took two screws off the top plate of the arm where the motor in the door meets the frame (bottom of door). I then took this plastic arm cover off. I could then see the wire harness and the gear. Now, make sure there's nothing major wrapped around the gear; next, see if you can get the door to start moving by pressing the button at the same time as you wiggle the wire harness. If the door starts to go, then it's likely a bad wireing harness.
I took the wiring harness out of the arm and moved it below the arm instead of within it. Now it works just fine (the harness doesn't bend in the same bad way anymore). However, I anticipate having to buy a new wiring harness to fix it for good.

How do I fix the Left side Sliding Door on my 2007 Dodge Grand Caravan?


have the hinges dropped or a catch remained locked in placem sounds like it. The door should be removed for inspection and diagnosis repair, somebody who repairs such vehicles would probably be the place to sort it out.
If your mechanical/electrical skills are upto par you might do it yourself....sounds like a mechanical issue really

good luck

Check the wiring harness for the door cable. 2004, 05, and 06s had the same issues. Over time, the dorr may catch the cable in the track, giving a slight yank, or moisture gets into the harness fouling the conection.

could be a partially broken wire in the wiring harness that runs in the door track. the wires are inside what looks like a plastic chain that allows it to move with the door and have seen them partially break not allowing power to flow the whole time

Power sliding door will not open or close


The dealer needs to reset the computer for the doors.  It happened to our 2008 and after the reset it works great.
