2004 Power Passenger Sliding Door - Buttons don't work,

In order to either open or shut the door, I have to pull on the handle (inside or outside) for an extra split second. When I use either button in the car or if I only yank on the handle quickly, the door starts like it will go but then does not. It is definitely not anything in the track because we have cleaned it out and also because the door will go just fine when I hold the handle for that extra split second - it will go after making two audible little clicks without any help from me. It does not go if it only makes one click (either button or short pull of handle). We believe it must be something electronic since it works fine if the handle is held for that extra split second. Any ideas?

You may have to have the ECM rerogrammed with whats called a flash update. Its basically a software fix for the door controller. nContact your local dealership to see if an update may be needed and available. This is a procedure that can only be done by a dealership.

You need to pull the door apart and check the door ajar switch and the linkage rod from the door latch to the handle if it is how they are activated.

Passenger door can be opened from inside but not from outside...how too fix???


Remove the door lining and look inside by the lock. There is a linkage that has come adrift. To remove the door lining, remove handles, escutcheons, and arm rests. Using a wide blade screw driver gently pop the plastic rivets that hold the lining to the door.

My rear passenger door will not open from the inside of the car. When the handle is pulled the door will not open. It will open from the outside.


It has kid locks on edge of door. Open door and look along edge of door for a small sliding lever. Good luck.

I can only open the Front Passenger door from the outside. It will not open from the inside. I am talking about the front passenger door not the sliding door. It seems as though its not grabbing...


The linkage system, from the door handle to the door latch, is disconnected somewhere, or broken. The door panel has to be removed, the linkage system have to be inspected, any the faulty part has to be replaced, and riconnect the linkage to the door handle and the door latch.

Passenger sliding door doesn´t unlock (Power locks). When pulling the handle either inside or outside with doors unlocked it won´t open.


Sound like you have a dammaged door latch assembly. It is a pain but you have to take the insid door trim panal off to see what you are doing and make sure the latch assy is un locking. Dis connect power door lock motor linkage to make sure motot is not jaming the lock in the lock possition.

Both manual sliding doors on my Toyota Sienna will not open


If you can remove the inner door panel you will see a maze of cables running to the various locking points on the sliding door. If the cable going to the FRONT latch on the sliding door is broken (or in my case, simply dislodged inside the door) the door acts as if it is frozen shut.

The front cable is short, and easily replaced even by a newbie mechanic.
