Why would automatic sliding door not pop out unless you pull handle?


Sometimes the lock on the handle from the interior gets stuck half way in/ out. Check its position. Mine does this periodically and then won't close, keeps opening. Also verify child safety close switch is in correct position.

Passenger sliding door will not work automatic


Automatic sliding doors use optical or motion detection sensors to activate their motorized opening and closing functions. These sensors are mounted over the automatic door. The sensors use either infrared or microwave technology to observe motion.------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The side automatic sliding door is not working correctly


I had a same problem with my windstar. I found the kids somehow slipped a toy down in the track and it was jamming from this. Oh these kids sometimes. Check your door track throughly to see what is in the track. The track runs on the top as well as below the floor. Hope this helps you.

2005 Toyota Sienna XLE - Automatic sliding door not closing.


This may or may not work depending on exactly what is wrong with the door, I cant tell what is wrong without looking at it directly however:
You can try starting with all doors closed and unlocked, keys in hand disconnecting the battery and letting the vehicle sit for 2 min or so, then reconnect the battery. Put the key into the ignition and turn it to the on position but do not start the van. Next press the button to disable the power sliding door for the drivers side, then manually open the door fully, wait 5 seconds, then close it manually fully. Press button the button again to re-enable the power sliding door, then try to use it with the automatic feature either by pulling the handle or using your remote, this may or may not work depending on if the door has somehow become de-initialized (it should work now) however if something is broken inside the door closing mechanism or door closed/open sensors, the door will continue to malfunction.

2005 Nissan Quest automatic sliding door does not close


I would advise you check the guide area at the bottom where the door slides. There could be something lodged in the guide causing the problem.

Good luck!

My automatic door on my van starts to close then when it is almost closed it automatically reopens without closing. I have looked and nothing is blocking it from closing.


Take a rag with rubbing alcohol and start wiping out all the creavas. Get it spick and span, those dern things are super sensitive a little peice of popcorn kernal will not let it close
