Power sliding door won't stay shut

We've had a few problems with our power sliding door over the years. Our current problem is that it closes, than immediately slides open. So it won't stay shut unless we have the power sliding door option off.

Most like your contacts on the door and jam are either worn or coroded. try using a soft old tooth brush and a lil dab of toothpste to clean the copper contacts. if the problem still exist the contacts or too worn and should be replaced

Radio won t shut off when the drive door is open


It is because you didn't open/close the driver side door. Contrary to the RAP system on earlier GM vehicles, the accessory power will stay on until the driver side door, rather than any door.

I suspect there is nothing wrong with your Saturn

1999 Chevrolet Venture Power sliding door opens back up after closing. I have cleaned the contacts on the door post and on the door itself. There is nothing in the way, ie: weatherstripping or seat belts....


simple door latch, try unplugging the power and see if the door opens, if it does its not the motor. if the door is out of alignment it wont latch. if the latch in the door is broke it wont latch. try locking the door when its closed.

The sliding doors on our 2006 Honda Odyssey


Happened to me today on my 2007 non-powered slider. Big snowstorm, lots of ice. I forced the door open from the outside and could not close it. Lots of fun driving home. I let it thaw in the garage and saw that the assembly was engaging, the lock was still spring loaded....and it works now. Last year, on the other side of the car, the slider would not close and it was because the assembly lost its spring. Dealer had to take the whole door off and replace the part. 500+ dollars.

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.

2006 Chevy Uplander. The power sliding doors won't shut


2 possible solutions. First clean the door pin contacts(multiple spring loaded pins on door side and matching plate on body) with a scotch pad until shiny gold color again. Second the rear edge of the door should be 1mm inside the body opening when closed. If those are correct it is going to take a software download from a dealer to the door control module to fix this. Otherwise you will have to pull the psd fuse and breaker from the right side dash fuse box.

Power side power on 2000 sienna van does not work


Sounds like the switch in the door, that tells the car the door is closed, is not working or broken. It may be inside the door or on the door frame. It looks like a button or a slide button that when the door closes, it's supposed to close on this button and shut off the interior lights and turn off the dash light. The doors probably won't lock because it thinks the door is open with the keys in the ignition. Electrical systems are never cheap to fix and they can cost a lot of time just to figure out exactly what's wrong and where. I hope this helps.

The power sliding passenger door will not open even manually. At first it didn't want to close, but after I slammed it shut it didn't want to open. A few days later I was trying to get the door panel off...


I think you have a latch issue or a latch release issue, pull the door panel and try and release the door latch, pull the latch and try to see what if anything is wrong with it, also make sure the linkage going to the latch from the release handle is hooked up or not otherwise damaged.
