My power sliding door won't close all the way, door alarm keeps r

We have replaced the door seal once and now the problem is happening again. Even if the switch is off on the overhead panel, the alarm continues to ring. I can shut the can off and lock it and the bell continues to ring.

I have a 2005 Pontiac Montana van that had the same problem with the passengers side door. I tried the fix above but it didn't work. I found that the switch at the rear of the door had a rubber cover that was worn thru on top. I think it was binding up and not allowing the plunger to depress all of the way. I removed the rubber cover and it works now.

I recently bought a 2006 Uplander LT with low miles that is very loaded and has the dual power sliding doors. I had the same problem with my drivers side door and I finally found the solution. With the door open I got down on my knees and looked into the track and followed it to where is stoped, which is just under the drivers seat left rail, and I found an expandable foam material that GM sprayed in the corner of the track and I could see where it had a mark in it where the door roller was hitting and causing the door to think that something was in the way. I had an interesting time digging this material out, and I literally had to get ALL of it out before the door would close properly, but once I removed it, I have had NO MORE PROBLEMS. I got this van cheap because it was a "Manufactures Buy Back" and I am sure that the deealer could not find the problem. Someones loss was my gain. I hope this works for you. GOOD LUCK!

first I would be looking at the body switches for dirt or rust causing a false signal.. then I would adjust the part of the alarm that the wind affects..it should be adjustable for sensitivity..the dealer service should be able to advise you..if not check with an alarm service company..that installs these systems..good luck..

HELP please!! My daughter has a 96 sebring convertible and today she put her key in the door to unlock it and the alarm started going off. It wont stop, have disconnected the positive and negative battery...


Just a quick note once you hook the battery back up try locking it and unlocking it from the drivers door, if that fails you might try the passenger door. I know on some chrysler products you have to lock and lock again to arm and unlock to disarm. I hope this helps.
Thanks,

I cant get the power sliding door alarm to stop dinging.


I have a 2006 SV6 with the power sliding doors. The problem that I found was with the contacts on the door ( They are called plungers) the movable pins were losing connection with the fixed part The plunger is very easy to replace if you can find one. The plungers are covered with a rubber cover and is held in place with 2 plastic pins. My Pontiac dealer could not even find one in his books or even a picture of one, and claimed that he had never had anyone come with a door problem. My Chevy dealer said that it came with a wiring harness that is not needed for $154. The cure that I came up with was to take the plunger block apart (it snaps together)and replace the rusted out springs then solder 3" wires to the end of the plunger pins (they solder easy) to the tabs that go to the plug(pop out the tabs or you will melt the plastic. It took about 45 min. now the doors work like new and will never loose contact again

Power sliding door will not stay closed. once activated the door goes to the closed position then opens back up. how can this be corrected.


Option 1: where the metal contacts on the door meet the metal contacts on the panel, take a high-grit sandpaper and sand those contacts.
Option 2: ensure that there isn't any debris in the tracks that the doors slide on, both on top and the bottom. The vehicle is equipped with a safety sensor that won't allow it to close if something is in its path.
Also check the weather seals around the door for damage.

Alarm / electrical issues for 1998 Cabrio


Sounds like 2 problems. One a low battery. When you used the laptop you might have drained the battery of the vehicle. The alarm sounds like broken wires in door harnesses between the doors and frame. Remove the rubber seal beween the door and body of the car and look for cracked and broken wires. If they are broken or touching it can cause many wierd problems. Once you locate it which is easy you can show a certified mechanic and he or she can repair or replace the harness.

When my alarm goes off, it usually happens when someone sticks their hand in the window to unlock the door. In order to turn off the alarm I close whichever door the person opened back, and unlock the door from the driver's side door. This usually turns the alarm off.
