I just purchased a NEW 2003 Chevy Venture LT with dual power sliding rear
This vehicle has 675 miles on it now and recently began having problems with
the passengers side
power sliding rear door. At around 550 miles, the door would no longer open
using any of the
power controls (remote control, door post switch, overhead console switch)
and it would was difficult
to open manually (seemed to be stuck as if it was locked). The door would
slide open by itself after manually
being opened as it is supposed to do and would close fine as well. However,
the problem seemed to
keep getting worse and now the door will not open or close at all except
manually with the override switch activated.
The drivers side power door works fine.
I read on some other websites that GM has had power sliding door problems in
the past (1997-2000).
Does anyone know if GM is having problems again with these doors again or
know of other reports like this?
We contacted our dealer who will be calling us back on Monday during working
hours to set up
an appointment to check the problem.
