Question about 2012 Dodge Grand Caravan American Value Package Passenger Minivan 3.6L V6 FFV 6-speed Automatic

1 Answer

When I went out to my 2012 Grand Caravan this morning, my two manual side doors would not open. Everything was unlocked, but neither one would budge.

It was cold last night - around 40F. I know all the doors were closed when we got home. A few minutes after trying to figure out what the problem was, I noticed that the door looked just a smidge open - like it had popped. I wiggled it trying to get it to latch with no luck. I tried to open it again and viola! It worked! What is the world caused that to happen to both sides in the first place?

Do your doors lock when you put the van in gear , that is what happened ,when you tried to close the door it released , and now you can open the door,.

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

SOURCE: Power sliding door doesn't work!

Try taking off the door, or spray some wd-40 on the rail. It sounds like its either not getting enough power or its getting caught on something.

SOURCE: 2005 Grand Caravan power door lock quit working.

The lock actuator is probably broken in that door. We got one of the internet for 80$ and replaced it outselves and it solved this problem. IOD fuse is very temporary fix as system is sensing problem and flipping to protect itself like the breaker switches in the house.

I have a Holden Barina Hatch 2012 model.


I think the system on that car enables you to open the petrol flap once the drivers door is unlocked (either by pulling the cap open or pressing on the flap).

1. Lock the car using the central locking.
2. Insert the key on the drivers door, turn it once and unlock it. Open the door to check you have unlocked it. Then turn the key in the lock again as if you were unlocking it a 2nd time.
3. Now open the petrol flap as the lock should have released.

Why won't the driver side manual slider door open?


The rod from the handles to the lock mechanism could have come off or become bent to the point that it won't work the latch anymore. The prior problems were probably just symptoms of the problem you have now. Will have to take the door panel off and manually trip the latch.
