Electrical problem
2002 Toyota Sienna 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive 56000 miles

the sliding door driver side was not opening properlywhen unlocked it required jerking the door handle several times before opening. I sprayed the locking mechanism with wd 40 to lube the moving parts. In doung so I pushed back on the locking latch to get some lube underneath when I did so the latch rotated in the locked position. I am not sure what to do to applt voltage to the door to unlock the door since it now will not closr while the latch is in the locked configuation. Please help

Hi Alfred,

Thank you for the donation.

The opener is not functioning to open the doors corrctly and when you lock the latch with the door opened, the latch is not going to come out.

You would need to remove the inner door panel to check the door latch and opener positions.

Are you able to open the door with the inner opener?
