If you look carefully in the track in the center of the van, look to see if the rollers are still intact to the piece that slides back and forward. Also if you can get the door open far enough, look for the same thing on the topp and bottom of the door. They are like a plastic,which may have broken away.

Dutch doors wont open


I had the same problem with the side door and found out that the plastic interior was coming out of the door and would not open. It is something like something was the way.
As for the battery, I am sorry to say but you will have to replace it if it doesn't hold a charge.

Unlock locks on side of the door that keeps the door from closing


Not entirely sure what you're asking but I'll try. If the door does not close, the latch may have accidentally been knocked into the closed position. Unlock the door, have somebody pull the handle like they are trying to open the door and hold the handle out. Then place a screwdriver, or something similar, about 3/4" into the latch at the end of the door. Now push the screwdriver toward the vehicle, replicating the action of the striker as if the door was being opened normally. This should release the latch and the door will then close. If your problem is something else, add some more details and I'll try again.

Passenger window stuck down on chrysler grand voyager year 2004


NO COST and fast PROCEDURE TO FIX IT, if just one window stuck:

1. Sit in vehicle, on seat next to problematic window
2. Ignition key is on
3. Door in question is opened (in case you closed it)
4. While door is open, press and hold power window button in desired window travel, keep button pressed !!
5. SLAM hard the door closed with one hand while other hand holds button as per #4.
6. Watch window operate as it should.

7. Repeat 3-6 if necessary, but usually the first try works!

This way, try this first before spending $ at the dealer, or taking door apart to hit motor. as mentioned above post.

Door wont open from inside or outside


I have just fixed mine. You have to remove the rear seat then remove the side panel that the door is jammed on.Now looking at the door post you will see two screw heads that are crome in colour. I took a small grinder and took of some of the length of the screw These two screws is what holds the door latch to the body which holds the door closed I then drilled a hole threw the bracket and the screws both screws then broke the bracket loose,pushed the screws in and the door opened.Had to buy a new lock assembly from a wrecking yard and took out the to screws I drilled out.of the same car I got the lock assembly Good Luck It worked for me

Diver side door will not open with door handle (outsidedoor )


There is a small clip that holds the outside door handle arm (inside the door) to the latching assembly, so the door panel has to be removed to reattach it. Sometimes the little clip is still attached to the handle arm, sometimes they are in the bottom of the door & sometimes you can't find them at all... Rick

Closeing my back drivers side door


If the door itself will not stay closed then it is not the power locks but the latch that is malfunctioning, the locks only allow or disallow the latch from opening when you try to open the door.  Thoroughly lubricate the latch mechanism on the door with something like WD-40 and inspect it for damage, make sure the bolts that hold the latch within the door are tight and are aligned correctly.  After you lubricate it, close and open the door to work the lubricant in.  Also if you have child lock switches on the door, make sure the switch is fully off or on.  If all else fails then the handle/latch mechanism may need to be replaced.

Driver's side door power locks are stuck; door stuck shut.


sounds like the rods are disconnected the clips hold the rods in place the latching mechanism holds the handle in place as well did you replace the speakers or did a shop? if a shop did then they caused this if you did then you may have caused this either way untill you reattach the rods none of it will work. you will have to manually open the door at the latch from inside teh door behind the panel.
