Each door has on or two contacts that touch one or two other contacts when the door is closed. These contacts get dirty over time and don't make contact in order for the warning light to go off. You can clean the contacts with a cleaning solution and a scuff pad or cloth. I believe this will fix your problem. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

Your problem is the door thinks that it is already locked and closed. You need have the sliding door unlocked, have someone pull the handle as if they were going to open the door and then use a tool to "Open" the latch that normally would hold the door closed.

A quick guess is that one of the power sliding doors is not closing properly or the switch for that door is broken. A broken door switch would leave the door motor or interior lights on continuously and drain the battery. Draining the battery more than a few times would ruin it. Also check the front door switches for broken or missing actuators - the door ajar icon looks similar to the sliding door open icon.

I tried to download an owner's manual so I could be sure I was interpreting your dashboard icon correctly, but the oldest one available is for 1999, so my information may not be accurate.

When in anything but park there is a constant beeping coming from the back of the van? what could this be? it is a 2001 oldsomobile silhouette


one of the doors is not shut properly prolly the power slider. "help" it close and it'll go away, or turn on the lock on the panel above your head.

From the back of the front door slide your hand in the sliding door crack and find the child-safety-lever. Push the lever up and/or down while moving the sliding door manual lock/unlock button to the up position. Also works on the non-powered sliding door.

Look in your owners manual there is a procedure to reset the door controls. If that dosen't work maybe the motor is burnt out, it's in the left rear access panel.

Try and check the latch in the door sometimes they catch and don't open all the way it may take a screwdriver to pry it up or it could be a clip has broke inside the door on the trip mechenizm and won't let it hit the spring tension to lock it shut.
