A lot of times when locking the van with the key or with the door switch, the van makes a loud grinding or sqeaking noise. What is causing it? We had to replace the door cable because it broke a year ago. About 6 months later the noise started. Please help!!! Thanks

    If the noise is occurring just at the last bit where the latch is pulling it in to close , then most likely it's a worn 'closer motor assembly' Rear latch and several other control cables built as one unit at rear of sliding door(power doors , right?) If it's a metallic screaching that goes along with most of the distance the door travels , then have the center roller checked- also common on those.

    It only makes the noise when you lock the doors not when unlocking the door. The noise is coming from the passenger sliding door. It sounds like a loud groan.
