Question about 2000 Toyota Sienna
Toyota manual provides reset instructions for auto side door reset by disconnecting battery for 1 minute w/control switch off... etc. Usually this works, but not today. Door opens under it's own power but even after reset procedure, it will not close under it's own power. But you DO hear a relay clicking somewhere on the side of the van when hitting the power door switch.
Can I repair myself ?
What is wrong ?
I too had this problem. The first several times i tried the reset process (page 23 of the owners manual) it made no difference.
It appeared to me that the computer did not properly know where the door was actually located. like you , my door would not close. in fact, base on the sound, it sounded like it was trying to open when it was already open. I knew i had to figure out a way to "trick" the computer into relearning where the door was.. as crazy as it sounds
With the battery on, I opened the door with the button, before it could open fully, i closed it again with the button. I did this several times. I also experiment with shutting off the power (using the on/off button) in mid operation. Eventually it would close but pop back open again. At this point, I then did the reset procedure and it worked!
I am not a mechanic but a pretty decent electronic/computer guy. All i know is it worked!

Its probably the motor reverse cycle going out.yes, you can repair it yourself, but alot easier to have a mechanic do it. It could be a headache . Good luck. Hope this helps.

The first thing to check is the fuse that controls that door's motor. Look in your manual for the fuse chart. Determine where the fuse panel is and which fuse it is. Pull that fuse and take a close look to see if it has blown. If so, replace it with a new one of the same amperage
