Customer Question
The sliding door won't...

The sliding door won't close all the way. I tried to close the door manually when the "power" to the sliding door was in operation. This happened before and I remember holding down buttons for the locks-it may have been with my old van

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Dodge?

Grand Caravan 2002

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

Besides, swearing? I've locked unlocked the door on the fob and drivers door panel

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fob's battery?

No

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

No,I would like to avoid a trip to the dealer though

What Customers are Saying:

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.
