Do you know how to test automotive electrical circuit's ? Viewing wiring diagrams an using a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter ? What else opens the door ? key fob , another switch etc.. does the door open at all ? These power sliding are controlled by a control module , power sliding door module . Do you know what wiring diagrams are ? Free one's here http://www.bbbind.com/free-tsb
Enter the vehicle info. year , make , model an engine . Under system click on body & accessories ,then under subsystem click power sliding doors . Click the search button then the blue link. Looking at the diagram i see the switch , knowing about these control module circuit's , I know the control module supply's low voltage to the switch an when pushed it goes to ground . Inside the module for that circuit is a dropping resistor an the control module can tell this and will open the door . With this type set up ,may even have DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes stored , not like the one's for the engine OBD 2 system . Need a factory or professional type scanner to read these codes.
#1 take the inside trim card off the door #2 open the door about 1 foot #3 put a jack under the back edge of the door and raise enough to support door but not to lift it #4 from the rear of the door take wrench and undo the bolts that hold the hinge on the door #5 pull the hinge toward the back of the van and tip it up so the wheel will come out of the track-reverse order to assemble-insert into track-bolt to door-release jack, check fit-you may have to adjust it up or down so it closes properly-install inside trim card-cheers Denny
Rear Side Door Actuator Control Module
The rear side door actuator control module is capable of on-board diagnostic functions described in On-Board Diagnostic Features . The rear side door actuator control module monitors the door position at all times including during manual operation. After activating the on-board diagnostic modes, loosing battery voltage, or ground to the rear side door actuator control module the Power Sliding Door (PSD) Re-Initialization procedure must be performed in order for the rear side door actuator control module to correctly determine the door position.
Power Sliding Door System Description
The power sliding door system(s) can operate correctly only if the power sliding door is in proper mechanical condition. Any mechanical problems will affect the power sliding door operation and must be repaired before attempting to diagnose the power sliding door system. Manually open and close the power sliding door to determine if the door moves smoothly and without excessive resistance or binding. The power sliding door must also latch and unlatch without the use of excessive force. At any time during power sliding door open or close operation, excessive resistance to the door movement will cause the power sliding door to stop and reverse the direction of travel.
The power sliding door will operate only when the power sliding door on/off switch in the overhead console is in the on position. At anytime during power sliding door operation the on/off switch may be turned to the off position and the system will quit any function in process. The power sliding door will not open unless the transmission shift lever is in the park position and the door is unlocked. When the sliding door security lock is in the locked position the power sliding door will not open from the inside. The power sliding door close function will operate when the vehicle is in gear. The power sliding door module uses the VSS signal to determine if the vehicle is moving during a power sliding door close function. The momentum of the vehicle moving forward adds resistance to the door closing operation. When the rear side door actuator control module determines the vehicle is moving forward while closing the door, current flow through the actuator motor is increased instead of being reversed. The VSS signal circuit is supplied battery positive voltage through a resistor then monitored within the rear side door actuator control module. The VSS signal circuit is then pulsed to ground, or pulled low by the powertrain control module in relation to vehicle speed. The sliding door alarm will sound repeated short tones whenever the power sliding door system is turned on and the door is open while the transmission is out of park.
When the power sliding door system is on and manual operation of the power sliding door is detected the rear side door actuator control module activates the power assist feature. When the power assist is activated the power sliding door will continue to open or close without any further manual effort.
The power sliding doors may be operated using the Remote Keyless Entry System. The keyless entry transmitter will have one OPEN/CLOSE button with a van symbol on it for each power sliding door. The power sliding door ON/OFF switches in the overhead console must be in the ON position in order to operate the power sliding doors using the keyless entry transmitter. When a right hand power sliding door OPEN/CLOSE function is activated using a keyless entry transmitter the exterior lights will flash once indicating the RKE module has received the OPEN/CLOSE command. When activating a left hand power sliding door OPEN/CLOSE function with the keyless entry transmitter the exterior lights will not flash.
On-Board Diagnostic Features
The left and right power sliding door systems operate as independent systems. The on-board diagnostic modes are entered and operate the same in both systems.
The power sliding door systems are capable of the following on-board diagnostic functions:
• Diagnostic Mode 1: An audible signal indicates the diagnostic trouble codes stored by the rear side door actuator control module.
• Diagnostic Mode 2: An audible signal indicates when inputs to the rear side door actuator control module are active.
• Diagnostic Mode 3: Performs an output test of the sliding door unlatch actuator.
Entering On-Board Diagnostics
The on-board diagnostic modes can only be entered in a sequential order from modes 1-3.
• Enter the right power sliding door system on-board diagnostics using the right B-pillar open/close switch and the right on/off switch in the overhead console.
• Enter the left power sliding door system on-board diagnostics using the left B-pillar open/close switch and the left on/off switch in the overhead console.
1. Both power sliding doors must be closed and in the latched position.
2. Place the ignition switch in the OFF position.
3. Place the on/off switch in the overhead console to the OFF position.
4. Press and hold the B-pillar power sliding door open/close switch.
5. While holding the open/close switch, operate the on/off switch through 10 ON and OFF cycles within 10 seconds stopping in the on position.
6. The sliding door alarm will sound 1 long tone indicating diagnostic mode 1 is active.
Diagnostic Mode 1
Upon activating diagnostic mode 1, DTCs will begin to be signaled by the sliding door alarm. The DTCs are 2 digit codes and the codes are represented by the number of buzzes for each digit of the code number. For example a DTC 12 is represented with the following sequence: buzz, pause, buzz, buzz, long pause. Each DTC will be signaled 3 times before proceeding to the next DTC. Refer to Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) List . The DTCs will continue to be repeated in this manner until the on-board diagnostics are exited or mode 2 is entered. When exiting the on-board diagnostics all stored DTCs will be erased from the rear side door actuator control module memory.
you will need to remove the cover around the handle they are easy to brake from the inside of the outside cover ring go from the inside with a small screw driver and slide between and pry the cover up it has 4 mounting points top left top bottom right and left. next pop off the switch from the front slide a screwdriver at the front leading edge and push it towards the back of the door panel and lift gently there is a flange on the rear of it that holds the rear of the assembly down dont pry up on the back lift the front and slide it forward unplug all the wires. remove the two screws inside the door arm rest where you pull the door shut. the cup to close the door. next you need to remove the mirror cover at the front top of the door panel slide a screwdriver pry straight out. using a door panel clip tool. slide under the panel at the bottom rear corner to find the clip and pry the clip out of the hole. work your way around the door to each clip. sometimes you can pull the panel off with your hands but if you are not experirenced you might break some clips or the door panel be nice to it dont break things. all the way around the sides and the bottom are released then pull away from the door and hold the bottom and lift up and hit the top of the door handle with your hand so the clips will release accross the top. remove the light socket from the rear bottom of the door. place the panel somewhere so you dont scratch it up. now remove the rivet from the handle. I punch the center out then use a sharp chisel to punch it off. you may want to drill the rivet. up to you. then the handle slides forward and you have to disconnect the linkage clips from the handle. install the new handle make sure the lock rod is in the hole that slides the lock. hook up the linkages new slide back in position and rivet then reverse the prosess of removing the handle
To start, the noun "''rear latch switch'' is incorrect. It's actually called "Slide Door Lock". It's located on page BO-20 of the Toyota Repair Manual for the 2001 Sienna. There are two door locks on one sliding door. One in the front and one in the rear. Obviously, you want the one in the rear. The location for the "Slide Door Lock" (which also contains an electric switch) is in the rear of the sliding door located mid way up door. You can see (sliding door opened from the back) it without dissembling the door. And, the lock is made up of plastic (dirty white in color).

There are a couple screws that hold it on. I believe one is in the door handle recess and the other behind a small cover in the door opening lever. After you remove those take a flat head screwdriver and slide it between the metal of the door and the plastic panel starting at the bottom (there should be a spot that sticks out a bit where you can get a screwdriver in). Pry out until you feel a pop (its a good pop), the door panel is held on by what are called Christmas tree plugs that pop in and out. Just work your way around popping them all out and slide the panel up and over the lock pin. Then disconnect the handle linkage and the electrical connectors (dont remember if there are any on the rear doors but the instructions are the same for the front) and set the panel aside. Reverse that to install
