The power sliding door mechanisms of a 2005 Toyota Sienna

Power sliding door is an invention with an electrical-mechanical mechanism designed to open/close sliding doors by pushing a press-button. It is designed for your convenience, but like other mechanisms, fail. Very peculiar with Toyota Sienna and other minivan vehicles, you may experience one or more of the following:

  1. Door jammed and cannot open.
  2. Button doesn't open the door, works manually (when door handle is pulled) only.
  3. Door closes and opens up on its own
  4. Door seem to open after pressing the electric button, but won’t slide open.
  5. Door is stuck open

Here are 4 possible causes:

  1. The power switch to activate electric sliding is off.
  2. The internal or external cables are weak, frayed and/or snapped
  3. The door open/close mechanism (actuator, catcher or latch) has failed
  4. The door support hinges are weak
