Customer Question
I have a 2002...

I have a 2002 voyager base 6 cyl minivan, the rear liftgate switch has stopped working, it is the pad style instead of the lever handle, I have power locks but do not have power doors. I have to use the key lock and then manually lift the door with the key in the door, would this be the lock actuator or the actual pad switch to unlatch the door

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with a Chrysler. The Chrysler Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Are you hoping to fix this yourself?

Yes I am, I know my van is deceptive with fixes, I just don't want to buy the wrong part and go through the hassle of returning.....

Mechanic's Assistant: Great! What have you tried so far?

Nothing yet, the door latch did go through a period of time where it would unlatch by itself

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Chrysler Mechanic should know about your Chrysler?

Getting information before taking off the trim panels or fighting with nuts and bolts...

Hi my name is ***** ***** I'll help with your Voyager hatch.

It is most likely the switch pad that is the problem with your van. They can get water into them over time which can cause them to short out. The switch is a multiplex resistor and the corrosion makes its reistance value to high so the connection is not made anymore.

They are available at most parts stores now. They are about $40. Mopar Part number:(###) ###-####D

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
