I have a 2008 SXT and there was a recall to replace the sliding door wiring harness. See if your 2996 caravan is included in this recall.

SOURCE: 2000 grand caravan sliding door won;t open

I would start by pulling the door panel off the inside. This will give you a look at the lock and handle mechanism to see what is amiss. Suspect a broken, fallen link that may now be lying in the bottom door channel and retrievable with magnetic pick-up tool. Get a good trim removal tool since a panel that large is easy to mar if you try pulling it with a screwdriver. Have a helper assist with the job and start by pulling the rear and middle seats if you can. To cheat on this, you may want to pull the panel on the opposite door to see how everything is supposed to look.

Chiltons is a very basic manual cover numerous years. To check slighty pry the bottom edge of your door with your fingernails if it is tight all the way to the bottom it probably is the snap fastners. Make sure to remove the door handle bolts/nuts.

You probably have a problem with your Sliding Door Control Module. You will be money (and frustration) ahead if you begin this diagnosis by having your Body Control Module scanned.

2006 Dodge Grand Caravan .... Passenger sliding door lock will not unlock with remote or unlock botton in vehicle. It appears to be moving part way, but will not complete task.


Replace the wire harness/track assembly in the lower door opening. It plugs in behind the B pillar and runs down through the trough to the door. They have a history of failing with all the movement they encounter with the door opening and closing.

Removal of left front panel, inside, of 2002 dodge caravan


On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls
