Question about 2002 Honda Odyssey
2002 Honda Odyssey: Trouble closing driver-side power-sliding door. Door jolts repeatedly while closing and then reopens when it is nearly shut; while reopening, it sounds an alarm as though the door encountered an object in the way. We can close the door only by pushing forward on the door while it slides (or the door will reopen at the jolts) and then by pushing firmly in on the front edge of the door while it slips into the fully closed position. If we let up on the door before the door is fully secured, it will reopen. There does not appear to be anything in the door track, all the visible parts look normal, and we have tried lubricating the hinges with 'dry teflon' spray.
Please check the aft track roller assembly. It is easiest to inspect from the rear of the van looking forward when the door is open. You'll see the rear hinge assembly clearly. The track rollers cannot be seen but you can pull outboard on the rear edge of the door--the door should not move outboard more than 1/8 of an inch. If it moves out more than this or feels sloppy, suspect damaged/missing track rollers. This will cause the hinge to chatter in the track and "jolt". It will also cause the door to misalign during the close phase preventing the close motor from properly engaging.
Replacing this part is no easy task but doable if you are good with cars. Check back here for more details if you want to try it, otherwise get a competent mechanic or the Honda dealership to do it.

The problem is likely the middle rollers being worn. The way to check is to open the door and then look at the rear middle bracket (the one riding in the slot on the side of the body. If the metal of the bracket is touching the side panel, the rollers are worn and that's the cause. I haven't replaced mine yet, but it looks like removing the bolts holding the bracket to the door will let you swing the door out of the way to deal with the rollers.
