Is there anything stuck in the sliders or rails for the door that might be making it hang up? My software has surprisingly little on diagnosing door problems with your van.I dont see any service bulletins either. Physically inspect everything first.

The DTC indicator turning off after 3 seconds means this is an intermittent problem and under such cirumstances, it is not going to be easy to diagnose.

Check wireharness for contamination, corrosion etc. Check ground circuit connections, clean and retighten if necessary.

No, the channel is completely clear. It worked before we removed the door strip under which wiring runs to the back of the van. When we put the step back together the door would not work.

Wher was the strip you removed? Try looking under it to see if maybe you accidentally pinched a wire

My sliding doors on my van will not open during cold weather (unless you crawl in from the front door and kick your foot against the sliding door in the back part of the door and someone has to have the handle pulled open from the outside). I am from the midwest and every winter has the same frustrating thing. I have had all the mechanics and weather stripping replaced and still the same thing happens. I have had the doors readjusted, leveled, removed and put back on. I have greased the thing down, you name it and it has been greased, and still winter hits and it gets cold outside and you can only get in to back through the front door, by the way is very annoying. This has happened outside my garage and inside my garage when cold enough. Any suggestions on the correction of this problem would greatly be appreciated.

ALSO: The doors are manual sliding.

How about some silicone grease on the rubber gaskets?
Because I believe that the door got "fused" with the ice. Its that true?
Or its something else?

The strip I referred to was the sill trim. We removed it by lifting along the inner edge to release the clips. The wires are not crimped but we did move them around some trying to identify the wire(s) that ran to brake lights. When the door did not work, we removed the sill trim again to make sure none of the wires were pinched.

I have tried Silicone on the rubber gaskets, I applied it to a rag first then generously wiped it on every rubber piece I could see. I did spray it once but talk about messy. The spot that seems to get stuck is in the rear of the door where it glides on the car. I did spray there too several times.
And yes I am assuming that it ices up some how.

Id dig deeper in that area, moving them the first time created the problem, might have been a bad connection that moving made worse. Look at the strikers for the door or anywhere there might be an electrical connection

Okay here it is for all odyssey power sliding door problems. This will fix it 50% of the time. It needs to be rehomed. Good luck everyone!

1. Erase the sliding door trouble codes by removing the # 13 (7.5 ) fuse from the passenger's under-dash fuse box for 10 seconds. Then put the fuse back in.
2. Turn off the main door switch. Make sure that the ignition switch is off.
3. Manually open the sliding door and make sure it's fully open.
4. Turn the ignition switch on. Then turn on the door switch.
5. Push and hold the CLOSE side of the dashboard door switch for that door until the door is fully closed.
6. Try the door operation with the dashboard door switch, the remote and the door handles.

I followed the rehome procedure to the letter. When I get to step 5 and press and Hold the Close button the response is three beeps then nothing. My problem must fall into the other 50% -- any suggestions?

When you manually open and close the door, is it sliding unhindered or is there a slight grinding or sticking toward the read edge of the slider?

I know this is a little of track, but I had the sliding mechanism go bad on me and I am just wondering if that would be enough to cause the door to not slide electronically.

There is not a grinding sound nor any other noise just considerable resistance. One must pull/push very hard in order to open/close the door.

Hello,

The beeping is telling you there is too much resistance in the operation of the door which is telling you the motor is going out, here is the wiring diagrams so you can see how the system works and how to change out the motor, also lube the rails and wheels after the job is done. Check out the diagrams (Below). Please let us know if you need anything else to get the problem fixed.
