2005 Town and Country sliding door lock problem
I have a 2005 T&C. Within the past two weeks, both of the power locks on the sliding doors stopped working. I have to manually lock and unlock the doors after opening up the front doors. I tried the IOD fuse reset (as I have in the past when the locks stopped working), but it did not work. The power sliding door locks work sometimes, but don't at other times.
Why don't you try a locksmith. Or a just-released-from-prison car thief :shades: . Either one can probbaly get the lock released and the door open.
I am still having trouble with the drivers side door and haven't checked to see if it is the same issue, but what it is doing is slightly different in nature. I will hit the auto open button and the motor will kick in, then the door jams and it doesn't even want to open when trying to do it manually. Although if you just try to open it manually from the start, it opens fine.
I am going to see if the wires on the drivers side are messed up as well, but figured I would ask the forum for tips and advice.
----See the following Youtube video. I just found it. Shows how to remove the door panel (looks very easy and even with the door closed it seems) and then shows how to replace the actuator. I have not removed the panel yet but I assume the actuator is the problem and needs to be lubricated or replaced. At the least this shows how to gain access inside the door. Good luck and anyone who tries it please share your experience. I will try to do the same here after I attempt to remove the panel.
