Question about 1994 Dodge Caravan

1994 dodge caravan sliding door

Where is the sensor switch located if I'm standing in front of my Sliding door? To my left is the door clamps and to my right is the long bolt and a two half inch long plastic buttons that compress. I took those out and compressed them with screws thinking that would stop the the ding ding problem when hiting a bump.

The sliding door ajar switch has a tan/yellow and black wire going to the switch. Chrysler has issued a service bulletin for this problem and issue a bumper pad to prevent inadvertent door ajar warning. Try to find bulletin 08-21-94

SOURCE: MY Dodge caravan's sliding closes and locks. When

I had the same problem. The issue is with the switch/sensor that is depressed when the door is closed. On mine, there was a white plastic "boot" on the end of the switch that had worn down/cracked. I went to the hardware store and bought a package of rubber tips (the kind that slip onto a chair leg, or end of a pipe, etc.) I pried off the cracked plastic piece and replaced it with the rubber boot. Viola, problem solved.

If your plastic boot is fine, or you don't want a do-it-yourself fix, the switch is easy to replace, and only costs about $5 at the auto parts store.

Power locks stop working on sliding doors


If neither the lock or unlock works, first check the power lock fuse(s). If the fuses are good, then have the relay tested. You can call your dealer to find out where these components are located on your specific vehicle.

My 1994 dodge grand caravan all of a sudden the dash display continually now says "door ajar", when all doors are closed. I think its the sliding door, but its obviously completely closed/not sticking...


When the doors close on a 1994 model they usually make contact with a switch. The switch should be visible on the body of the vehicle, check all of your switches and clean or replace as neccessary.

Dodge caravan sliding doors


First, keep in mind that as you begin to remove these doors you run the risk of causing serious scratches to the paint and glass, so put some masking tape and/or plastic sheeting around both sides of the door (rear quarter panel and rear glass, front door and front door glass)
I would get a Haynes repair guide since that's what I have to work from and it will tell you step by step with pictures, what to do. It's not hard, but you need to get all of the attach points unhooked to be successful. Suggest you have a helper working with you to keep the door steady.
