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.
your wire has come off door inside the door try unpluging fuse or the noise alarm under dash you need to replace the wires inside the sliding door to get it to close right again they have got tangled some how and tore loose.
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.------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Car Diagnostic Tools
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.
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.
I found out that the auto sliding doors are just like garage doors.... need lubed, connectors in door jamb cleaned and sprayed with silicone lube and sometimes an ajustment for tension- dealer item.... I took mine to a dealer and drove out 30 min later.... hope this helps.
