2004 toyota sienna sliding door freezes

Asked by Feb 10, 2014 at 08:08 PM about the 2004 Toyota Sienna 4 Dr XLE Limited Passenger Van

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

During freezing weather my sliding doors won't open (won't even move a little bit) when i
pull on the handle BUT ......the "door open" light comes on.  This starts draining the
battery.  Is their a solution to this?  Other than someone climbing in back seat to push
while someone pulls/bangs on outside.  This van has frequent electrical issues anyway.
On 3rd (7 year) battery in 5 years....toyota dealer is no help!

Put the vehicle someplace warm so the door thaws out, then use a silicone based lube on all of the doors hinges, sliders, latches, you may even have to remove the interior door panel to gain access to the door latch assembly inside the door.
