    I have the same problem on my 01 grand caravan. Driver's side sliding door will not lock. It does close all the way though and is not an automatic sliding door. Any suggestions on how to fix this?

  • Sibyllerae Dec 10, 2008

    Any similar recall for a 1994 chrysler town and country? My drivers side did it first and now the sliding door is doing it. The latch will get stuck in "open" and I will have to move the latch half closed to get the door to stay shut and then it gets stuck in the "closed" position. Please help!!!!

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!!

2005 Toyota Sienna LE Driver Side Power Sliding Door When the door is closed and latched, the motors makes noise, and the door moves the tiniest bit, but it doesn't open. The same happens in the fully...


Try this... it fixed my problem whereby the 2005 Toyota Sienna passenger sliding door would sometimes open and sometimes not, yet I could hear the motor trying to open/close it. It cost me 20 minutes and 10 drops of oil, not $1200.

First, get the door open. It took me two weeks of constant trying, but it finally opened.

Next, remove the plastic covering of the inside door handle this way: locate the two screws on the forward edge of the sliding door near the child-safety switch: (the switch is a small lever near the door latch, on the forward edge of the door) loosen and remove the two phillips screws, one above the child-safety latch, and one below.

Remove the plastic cover to expose the gears for the door open/close mechanism.

There's a bunch of intricate plastic and metal parts in there, all coated with white grease. I used some 3-n-1 oil to lubricate everything in there thoroughly, In my case, there was one part that was a little void of grease, hence it "stuck" occasionally.

Test the system. If it's Okay, replace the plastic cover, and re-install the screws.

Now my Toyota Sienna 2005 door never fails to open or close.

I think the child safety lock is engaged. Look in your owner manual how to disengage. It is near the latch on the edge of the door. Look for the yellow label.

rotate counterclockwise to disengage child lock.

I had to pull open my door on my 08 Pontiac G6 and it is not latching when I shut it now. The actual mechanism is moving just not catching the latch.


Look at the door latch if the latch is in the lock position the stricker will not go into the latch to close the door, the latch should have a clear path all the way into the latch, if it don't get a screw driver put it in the latch hold the handle as to open the door and slide the hook in the latch out, that should reset the latch.Good luck.

How do you get the acuator out to replace?


Repair would be to replace and I have no direct knowledge of the 99 model but my 2001 wasn't so hard and I would guess that the 99 will be a similar replacement.

  • Remove the door panel, on the 2001 it's 2 screws located on the inside door handle, 2 on the bottom and one at the top near the mirror.

  • With that removed you take off the foam panel and expose the inside of the door.

  • The lock actuators are easy to find, they are attached to the lock rod. There is one electrical connector on it that is taken off by lifting the lock clip using a slot screwdriver then just pull the connector out.

  • The actuator itself is a bit odd to get out.
    To look at the new one it seemed to me that it would click in from the top but after doing the first one I saw that it actually SLIDES in from the direction of the outside of the door.
    I found a very thin narrow **** located where the striker hits the lock on the outside door jam and this goes directly to the side of the actuator. I fashioned a tool from a narrow putty knife then pushed it into the **** and then pushed onto the actuator releasing the little friction clip that you can see on the new actuator.

    You then have to push and push this whole thing towards the outside wall of the door which doesn't go too easily. On my passenger side i resorted to a long slot screwdriver to use as a lever to help slide the thing forward because it didn't want to budge.
    The good thing though is that the new ones slide right into place easily.

  • Another thing, the pin on the actuator that moves the lock-rod just sits inside the lock-rod, there is no mechanical attachment and it fairly loose so no need to worry about that part of it.


Another Procedure Write-up
  1. Remove the retainer screw from the door handle cover and remove.
  2. Remove the screw from the bottom left corner of the door panel.
  3. Pull the door panel away from the door, starting at the bottom (may need to start with door half open then close fully to remove). Lift up and off the door.
  4. Peel back the door insulation by working gently at edges .
  5. Remove 3 black screws from the face of the door latch mechanism.
  6. Disconnect the controller arm at the top of the door latch mechanism that connects to the outside door handle. The plastic connector will push up from the metal arm after the locking tabs are pushed in.
  7. Open the door half way and remove the 3 screws from the side of the door around the door latch.
  8. The door latch mechanism is now able to be removed out from the inside of the door. The black wire cables may need to be removed from some of the retaining clamps.
  9. The lock actuator can be removed. The actuator body will twist out of the spring clamp. Then the bar at the end of the actuator can be removed by turning

Hope helped with this (remember rated this help) Good luck.

2002 Honda Odyssey: sliding door jolts/reopens when closing


Please check the aft track roller assembly. It is easiest to inspect from the rear of the van looking forward when the door is open. You'll see the rear hinge assembly clearly. The track rollers cannot be seen but you can pull outboard on the rear edge of the door--the door should not move outboard more than 1/8 of an inch. If it moves out more than this or feels sloppy, suspect damaged/missing track rollers. This will cause the hinge to chatter in the track and "jolt". It will also cause the door to misalign during the close phase preventing the close motor from properly engaging.
Replacing this part is no easy task but doable if you are good with cars. Check back here for more details if you want to try it, otherwise get a competent mechanic or the Honda dealership to do it.

Both front doors on my "93" Corsica won't open.


You have to open the Window all the way And I Assume your looking Down Threw the Glass opening to View the Linkage,

their is a Spring for the Return of the latch, While looking at the Latching system, Look for the Spring that When you "Try" to open the Door it's Suppose to Compress, Most likely the Spring is Not Fully Releasing,

You may try WD40, And work the handles for a few mins and Then Try to Unlock the door for it to open, OR you can Try a LONG Screw drive to Slide the Spring to fully Non compressed state and then Make sure the Door Lock is in the Open State before you try the handles..
