My 2010 odyssey sliding door on the driver side will open…

My 2010 odyssey sliding...

My 2010 odyssey sliding door on the driver side will open some times but not always . Then after a few days will start working again

Mechanic's Assistant: Will the headlights turn on? Is the battery fully charged?

Everything else is working. The right side continues to work when the left stops

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Odyssey yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes I am I changed the actuator

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Like I said it works well some times then it just suddenly stop working then after a few days starts again work for a few days then stop again.

Do you know if the sliding door on the driver's side is locking and unlocking properly when this occurs?

Let me know, thanks, Pete.

No it is not doing so. If I have to manually open the door I have to also manually pull the lock up to have it unlock. There is a beeping sound coming out from the back where the ac blower is located when the door stops working and I attempt to open it

O.k., there was a bulletin on this model for this issue.The fuel fill door when it is closed triggers a switch.This switch then tells the computer that the driver's side sliding door can be operated.If this switch fails to engage it keeps the sliding door lock from operating as well as prevents sliding door operation.This needs to be checked into.Below is the bulletin info on this.

The cusion is there . Could the switch itself be faulty? If yes how do I check it out

Unfortunately, I am unable to place a call on this here myself but others see you have requested a call and may still call on this here.I can, however, continue here.

The switch can be faulty causing this issue here.Here is the testing procedure for it.

Good afternoon pete
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
I removed the panel and checked the switch as you suggested
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
this switch indeed controls the locking and unlocking of the door depending weather or not the fuel door is open. However am not too sure how exactly to test it. Can you give some more advice on this please?

Hello pete
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Hello

I apologize for the delay.

The last link I sent in had the testing info in it to test this switch.Did you do the testing per that chart at all?

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
I just disconnected the switch and the door is working but will observe it .was trying to place an order for the switch but could not find it on rockauto

Unfortunately, the switch may have to come from a dealer only or salvage yard as some parts are only available through the dealer.This looks to be one of them.

Thanks Pete

Ok then thanks again for all your held . On another note does the 2010 odyssey has a transmission oil filter that can be replaced? Saw a clip on YouTube saying there is one but I can’t locate it

You're welcome

I grabbed your other post and put info on it for the transmission filter since it is a separate question I had to answer it that way.

Thanks Pete
