Try cleaning and applying a light lubricating grease to track top & bottom. Old grease gets stiff in cold weather and is creating resistance. Do NOT use WD40, use a light lithium based grease available at any parts store.

I have a 2001 Toyota Sienna. It has power sliding doors, right and left. The right side will not open with power. When observing from the outside it looks as if it is trying to close tighter when you push...


I got this problem with my 2001 Sienna too.
The Toyota deal said the computer BD is bad.
They charge me about $350 to replace with a new one.
However, the new parts is in shortage.
They said lots of back order for it!

Check out the wiring. Sounds like something is loose or the switch may be going bad.

2001 Toyota Sienna r.h. sliding door ''rear latch switch'' location


To start, the noun "''rear latch switch'' is incorrect. It's actually called "Slide Door Lock". It's located on page BO-20 of the Toyota Repair Manual for the 2001 Sienna. There are two door locks on one sliding door. One in the front and one in the rear. Obviously, you want the one in the rear. The location for the "Slide Door Lock" (which also contains an electric switch) is in the rear of the sliding door located mid way up door. You can see (sliding door opened from the back) it without dissembling the door. And, the lock is made up of plastic (dirty white in color).

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.

Hold the door handle in the open position while using a bent coat hanger on the door catch lever.Sometimes a flathead screwdriver works to pry the door catch as well. Good luck, keep me posted.
