Your latch assembly may be frozen, or the door actuator faulty (a common problem on this vehicle).

How to remove the door screen on 2000 MPV


It appears he tells you to remove the door panel, but doesn't actually explain the process...
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.

Try this, it works on several 2002 models:


Step 1: Open drivers door and leave open.

Step 2: Lock and unlock the drivers door using the power door lock switch on the door.

Step 3: Insert key into the ignition.

Step 4: Turn key to on position and return to off position. (IMPORTANT - use ON position NOT ACC position). Do this 3 times within 10 seconds. Leave key in the ignition.

Step 5: Open and close the drivers door 3 times. (Door should be left open after this step).

Step 6: ECU should respond by locking and unlocking the doors.

Step 7: Press any button on remote #1. ECU responds by locking and unlocking the car doors.

Step 8: Press any button on remote #2 (etc.) Each time the ECU will respond by locking & unlocking the doors.

Step 9: Remove the key from the ignition and the ECU will respond a final time with a series of door locks and unlocks. You're done

Removing Door Panel for MPV with door Stuck


I think the 04 should be very similar to the 03. Here is my fix for the 03

I just fixed this same problem. It happened to me 3 different times in a month so I got good at it. Before you dive into removing your door try this. Pull the door handle and release it letting it snap back several times. The problem is a half open door latch that won't let the door unlock. Do this as aggressively as you can to attempt to get the latch to return to its original position. Check the door lock between flicks.

Ok, if that didn't work, here is how to remove the door.
1. Remove the screw behind the door latch, you will have to pop the plastic cover off first.
2. Remove the rubber insert in the door handle
3. Remove the screw that is now visible
4. Now remove the window/lock control module, the back is free but the front has a plastic lip so lift the back up and pull towards the back of the van.
5. Remove the clips that attach to the lock and to the window controls (these can be a pain)
5. (Optional) Remove the bracket that held the window/lock control module

At this point your door is basically free, it is only held in place with plastic clips that can be easily forced off. If your door were open you would simple pull the bottom of the door out (hinged at the window) and lift it off. But since we can't pull because the door is closed we have to force it out.

From here it is pretty simple. Move the seat all the way back and tip the seat way back. Lift the door panel straight up. You will be breaking 2 plastic clips from the rear part but once you do it just pulls out. This is not that easy because the space is limited but just keep pulling and force the rear end of the door panel past the b-pillar. Once you do this it is free.

Have fun and try to keep the black gook from getting everywhere.

Oh, to fix the door lock just oil/grease it and manually move the mechanism several times.

Jam door locks


How about the passenger side - does it unlock with the key and switch there? Can you open the drivers door with a key? If both these are true, probably the unlock switch on the drivers door is faulty.

Door is stuck


I have had this on both of my front doors. What happens is that the door opening mechanism has rusted on you. It is like if you were holding the inner door handle open. The door won't unlock then, and the key won't go all the way on the outside. I have had to remove my door panels (NOT easy with the door closed...) and lubricate heavily the mechanism. Then the cable for the door handle went back in place.

You might be lucky and be able to get the door open by pushing the handle cable back in and it might release the mechanism, and then you will be able to open the door and remove the panel easily.

I believe that the problem lies with the seal for the window that can channel water to drip directly onto the mechanism. You will see it once the door panel is removed and you take the plastic off.
