Drivers side sliding door will not close with dash button and will not close automatically with handle. Door will manually close though. There is a sliding door light illuminated on dash.

Passenger power sliding door would close tight and 5 seconds later slightly open. Dealer replaced motor, telling me it was weak and would no longer hold door tight. Cost to replace motor and door rollers $800. Then 2 weeks later driver side has same issue. Looks like another trip to dealer and anothe $800. I did try the "fuse pull" repair trick, no luck with that. I can't believe I'm the only one with this issue! I have been in love with my van until this month... 2 power door repairs, timing belt, 4 new brake rotors & pads, PAX tires. Spending $4,000+ isn't what I had in mind.
The passenger side power sliding door does not open via the door handle, internal switch, or FOB.
When trying to open the door, it will start back closing; also, if the door does open, when I try to close it, it will start closing and then stop and open back up. Both doors are doing this now.

Drivers side sliding door won't open. Passengers side is fine. Can't open it manually, with dash control, with door panel control, or with remote. It beeps when we try manually or by power means.

I have had problems with both doors not latching all the way and only one door will work at a time, so for one month or so one door will open only and then it will switch and only the other door will open. The kids are always running around the car trying to get it. And there is a loud beeping to tell to that the door isn't latched all the way. I will never have automatic doors on my van again.

Hanger assembly on the slide doors has a single pin with a nylon roller. The pin gets bent and the roller breaks causing resistance which triggers the sensors to not allow the door to close. Eventually the door will even stick with manual closure. Can be fixed in 20 minutes with the right part (about 50.00. Dealer wants 285.00 per door!
Drivers side door had to be realigned as it made a clunking sound when closing.
Doors require aggressive manual closing initially before automatic feature kicks in.
