    2001 Chrysler Town and Country Limited Sliding door problems

    I just purchased this 2001 t and c and both power sliding doors are giving me problems. The passanger side works fine sometimes and sometimes after it shuts and latches it will unlatch and open all the way by itself unless i lock the doors as soon as it latches. The drivers side door will unlatche and open about 6 inches then stop. You can manually open the door all the way and then push button to close it will slide almost closed leaving a 6 inche gap again. help please

    Often the wire harness (inside the "chain" in the cavity under the doors) will have breaks in one or more wires. It is easy enough to repair.

    Instead of writing all the sources of videos and picture procedures, I'll ask you to "SEARCH" (I'm tired from a long day at work).

    Just a WAG on the passenger side problem



    First I would lubricate the door latch at the rear of the door, and the rollers (top, bottom, and rear). At one point a few of my rollers stopped turning so this is a good maintenance practice.

    Also FYI there is a resistance sensor that is supposed to open the power door if it senses something in the way (a foot or arm ). When you close the door manually does it require a significant force? Maybe the reversing function is coming into play.
