Question about 2007 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT Minivan
My dodge 06 minivan has stopped opening the sliding doors with the automatic buttons, the door just pops open but will not slide all the way open. when we first got it they worked fine. now neither door will open all the way.
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.
