Chances are the radio has an internl issue and requires replacement. The EQ draws power and inputs from the radio. A radio exchange is an easy process if you decide to put the sme radio back into your vehicle. Contact me if you need direction.

SOURCE: Replacing side mirror on 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan

On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Then you can access the bolts that secure the mirror onto the door

SOURCE: Passenger side slider door (not power) fell off.

As I had posted, I did not have my door fall off but I did have to have the door latch on both sliders replaced. The passenger side door latch failed first. At most, I use that slider door once a week. When I told them this, they said the latch likely broke from lack of use and basically seized up. Then a couple months later, the driver side slider door latch broke. This time they said it is because I use it so frequently (daily). How often can I use the door and stay within a happy medium so this problem doesn't occur again?? Sorry this isn't a solution but I wanted you to know I had a similar problem.

Why won't the driver side manual slider door open?

The rod from the handles to the lock mechanism could have come off or become bent to the point that it won't work the latch anymore. The prior problems were probably just symptoms of the problem you have now. Will have to take the door panel off and manually trip the latch.

Sounds like the locking mechanism is worn out and needs to be replaced any mechanic in you're local area should replace it rather cheaply.

Power door locks do not work. Will not lock or unlock from key or switch from inside the car. If you push the button to lock from key horn still sounds but doesnt lock. You can open and close both side...

Check your fuses. Because the locks are powered they have a fuse. Most likely the fuse box is located on the driver side under the steering wheel/ dash.

Sliding door lock

If you check the doorlock actuator it is more than likely bad. On my caravan I had to replace actuators on both sliders. Cannot get correct actuators at autoparts stores. Either go to a salvage yard or to the dealer to get them.
