Question about 2001 Dodge Caravan

1 Answer

I have a 2001 Dodge Caravan. This back door on the drivers side will not unlock. It started this winter and we thought the lock was frozen, but now that it is 65 out the door will still not unlock. What is wrong wtih it? How do you fix?

You will have to pull the inner panel off the door to look inside the panels to inspect the door latch to see if it may be seized or the lock mechanism is not moving due to broken parts,if the lock is not moving far enough you can reach in and manually unlock it.if the latch is seized you can spray it with penetrating oil and operate the release handle and try to force the latch open with a screw driver or something to open it.once open you can remove the latch and soak it in oil to try and free it up if not then just replace it.

Shut the hood, make sure the back hatch is shut tight. Lock all the doors. Walk around and make sure they locked. Open the drivers door with the key. This should clear the security. If not lock it again and try the passenger side door. Reach in and unlock the drivers door. If it cleared then. Replace the drivers door latch on the back side. Inside the door.

Why won't the driver side manual slider door open?


The rod from the handles to the lock mechanism could have come off or become bent to the point that it won't work the latch anymore. The prior problems were probably just symptoms of the problem you have now. Will have to take the door panel off and manually trip the latch.

Sounds like the locking mechanism is worn out and needs to be replaced any mechanic in you're local area should replace it rather cheaply.

My '05 Dodge Caravan is having power door lock problems. Presently they do not function. Any thoughts?


Under the hood on the drivers side is a fuse panel. Remove the top and locate the IOD fuse. Remove the fuse and look to make sure it's not blown. If it's ok simply replace it and locks should return to normal.
If the fuse is blown you will need another 10 amp mini fuse to replace it.

The passenger side sliding door won't unlock


I assume it has power locks, so I would look inside the door for a bad door lock solenoid or linkage rod is off. If it is not power, I would look for a linkage rod being disconnected or broken
