Look for any obstructions in the rail guide, or a dent in the rail, etc. Also look for loose rubber padding that may be preventing you from closing the door.
Also check the latch assembly for obstructions..

Passenger sliding door latch doesn't work right. Door closes all the way except the latch doesn't pull it in or closed the last 2 inches, when I use the remote or switch


Clean the tracks and guides the door moves on, then lubricate them with a light coat of white Lithium grease, commonly called "Lubriplate". This will greatly reduce the power needed to close the door fully.

I have a 2005 mazda mpv the pasanger side sliding door does not latch it mooves freely it is manual


You need to see if the latch bar ( curved metal piece that holds onto the strike bolt ) is in the closed position - if so, you'll need a helper to open it. You should also check to see if it is lubricated, which can keep it from latching.
When you look into the latch assembly, you should see a clear pathway for the striker bolt to enter the assembly. If there is a bar ( or hook ) blocking it, then you can use a flat blade screwdriver to move it to the open position. Insert the screwdriver into the latch assembly where you can pry on the inside of the hook, using the body of the door for leverage. position your screwdriver and then have your helper pull ( or push ) the outside door button / handle as you apply a small amount of pressure to the inside of the hook - the hook should easily slide out of the way. If it is hard to move, you'll need to spray some lubrication into the latch assembly. You can buy a can of white lithium grease in a spray can that will do the job.
There is a certain angle you'll need to pry in to get the latch to open - you may need to place the blade of the screwdriver through the hook and on the outside edge of the door or outside edge of the latch assembly, then gently push the screwdriver handle towards the outside of the van as the handle/ button is used.
Hope this helps!!

How do i reprogram the power sliding door on a 2005 buick terraza


From the owner's manual:

If your vehicle has

the dual power sliding doors, both doors will have

to be reset. To reset a door, do the following:

1. Check to be sure the power sliding door is

unlocked and securely closed.

2. Turn the ignition to LOCK.

3. If the power sliding door overhead console

switch is in the override (deactivation)

position, return to the activation position.

4. Open the sliding door using the remote

keyless entry transmitter, overhead console

switch, or passenger switch. Allow the door to

travel fully open.

If the door does not travel to the fully open

position, press the overhead console switch to the

override (deactivation) position and slide the

door fully open and closed. Check for foreign

objects in the tracks. Repeat the procedure starting

with Step 1. If the door resists travel to the fully
open position, see your retailer for service.

Sliding door latch


Can you pull on the release handle and use a screwdriver to change the position of the latch?

The van was hit on the back passenger side resulting in a dent . The open door light along with the interior lights flashed when I hit a bump. I hear something that sounds like a fan continuosly blowing....


I think this may be the "closer" motor continuously trying to gain a positive latch--and unable to do so. This could be from a damaged latch switch.

The sliding door has three motors, a slide motor, a release (or unlatch) motor, and a closer (or latching) motor. The open door light and interior lights coming on seem to indicate that the "closed and latched" switch is sometimes open-- allowing the closer motor to continue to operate.

Another possibility is that the dent has changed the geometry of the door mechanism especially the draw of the pull cable. The slide motor has a sensor that pulses when it runs. The door management controller counts the number of pulses of the slide motor sensor to determine when the door is fully closed and then stops the slide motor. At that point, the closer motor operates to latch the door. If the cable geometry has changed, the door controller may be shutting off the slide motor prematurely and the closer motor cannot complete the latch.

I'm not sure about the noise, but the jerking motion might be because your the center roller (located in the rear middle of the sliding door) has worn out and need to be replace. This is a will known problem.

Your problem is very hard to answer because 05-10 odyssey has so many problem with sliding door.

rear latch:
-door not to latch close
-door not to work

front latch:

lock actuator:
-door not to open
-door will pop when opening

window motor:

-door will only open half way

center roller:
-jerking motion when opening
-door kick back close while opening
-door kick back open while closing

Door motor:
-door not to work
-cause door to jam

good luck

Sliding door problem


You probably have a burnt out door lock soleniod, it's part of the latch, stuck in the locked position, you have to pry the latch from the inside, to release the catch, just replace the latch when done. GOOD LUCK, RDJRP

94 Lumina APV Van Sliding door latch stuck


It should be a "V' or "U" shaped locking mechanism, that the bolt on the latch slides into. You will have to pull the handle, while taking a screwdriver and sticking it into the slot, and pushing down. The handle will release the lock, the screwdriver is just so you can put some elbow grease in to slide it down.
