The failure mileage was 80,000. First time passenger side, more use took me a bit over an hour. You can tell that they are broken because they will either be cut in half, as mine were, or you will see a bulge in the wire. The only doors that has key unlock are the driver door and the rear door. We never went down either of those paths since I had a simple quick, although temporary, fix. The manufacturer was notified of the failure and confirmed that there were no recalls. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic who was unable to diagnose the vehicle.
This was a great inconvenience and could lead to driver's not locking the doors and causing injuries in the event of an accident. This involves safety, as the doors are supposed to lock automatically at a predetermined speed. I started looking on line for wire diagrams to help me try to troubleshoot the problem. If you are not able to fix the door this way, there are a couple of other things to do. We were on a shopping trip out of town.
The contact replaced the batteries in the fob, but that did not work. Black shoe polish might work if you don't get it on your clothes while getting in and out. The vehicle has not been repaired. The vehicle was repaired, but the failure recurred. The approximate failure mileage was 205,000. I then went back to the back of the van to get the grocery's out. Both sliding doors would not latch when closed.
The fob would cause it to close at random positions during opening. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. In addition, the contact stated that the driver side door interior panel caught fire. The repair did not remedy the failure. Stopped in auto service center, not Dodge, and they reset the codes.

The contact's daughter diagnosed that the fuse needed to be cleaned. The contact stated that the passenger side sliding door did not open manually or electronically. If the door wouldn't close how did you close it to lock it and have to exit out the passage side door? This includes automatically with the buttons in the van and on the remote or manually. I heard the side door closing.
Just pour a little around the door seals and presto your in. The vehicle had not been inspected. It is actually easy to do and takes only about 15 minutes per door. And the system uses a simple two-wire communication system between all of these modules. While parked, the rear sliding doors closed independently and had to be forced open.

The vehicle was not repaired. If the door slows down at a certain point during a power close, the system incorrectly interprets this as an obstruction and reverses the door. While the vehicle was parked, the rear passenger doors automatically opened and closed independently. Note: I am not a registered charity.

I'm trying to build a case of all the things that went and are going wrong with my van and meet with the service manager whenever I get to fed up!! One of the two larger wires usually are broken. The short I had cause the communication to be interrupted and the van would not even run. The vehicle was coasted to the side of the road.
