Hello, I have a question regarding a 2006 Chrysler T&C driver's side sliding door; door lock actuator chatters when locking - unlocking is OK. Does the actuator need to be replaced? Looks like an issue with some earlier year models according to the TSB. Is this a common problem? Thanks for any help!

REMOVE DOOR PANEL, LOWER WINDOW HALFWAY. BEHIND THE DOOR PANEL IS A METAL PLATE THAT IS THE WINDOW REGULATOR. THERE WILL BE TWO OPEN HOLES. AS U ROLL THE WINDOW DOWN LOOK IN THE HOLES FOR 2 10MM BOLTS. REMOVE THE BOLTS AND SECURE THE WINDOW. REMOVE ALL THE 10MM BOLTS AROUND HE REGULATOR.. LOOK BY THE HANDLE ON INSIDE OF THE DOOR IS A SMALL ROUND BLACK PIECE OF PLASTIC. PULL IT OUT THERE WILL BE A 8MM BOLT REMOVE IT AND SLIDE THE LOCK OUT OF THE DOOR. PULL FORWARD AND HANDLE THEN OUT. REMOVED THE WINDOW REGULATOR. REMOVE THE 3 T30 HEX BOLTS ON THE STRIKER. SLIDE THE ACTUATOR OUT AND INSTALL IN REVERSE ORDER.
I have the same problem and have tried removing the IOD fuse but now am thinking that this could be a problem with the actuator. Looks like the part is around $35. I will try this and let you know if it fixes the problem
Your question is alittle vague,...so Ill do my best...If your van has central locking (all the doors lock when you lock the drivers door with a key) then I can easily say that the actuator for the sliding door lock has malfunctioned....However if you are implying that you cant lock the sliding door from the outside using a key then it is because the linkage inside the door has came apart (Both issues would cause the door not to lock with the power lock button) If it is the linkage this is easily fixed by removing the interior panel on the slider and reconnecting the metal rod to its rightful place, if it is the actuator you have to replace it by removing the interior panel..Good luck
Not sure if they are same on 2006 but there should be a couple of small rounded metal contacts, or similar, on door that meet with door post to complete the connection. When you find them, clean them off with a little fine steel wool or SOS pad, minus the soap, and see if that doesn't cure it.
