I have a 2001 GLS eurovan. A while back the driver door won't open from the outside does anyone know what the problem and the fix is
Also at that time the visor won't stay up and if you switch the mirror on the visor the inside lights go on. Please help. I don't want to walk into a mechanic without some knowledge of the issue and the resolution.
The driver door issue is probably a linkage problem, the inner door panel needs to come off to access it. The visor issue is a wiring problem and would require some diagnosis. Also see if you can find a mechanic you can trust not to rip you off and be fair. Ask other friends who they use.
Thank you so much. I will look into fixing it now that I know how to describe the problem.
Good answer Tom, the power for the sun visors on your model are given power through the dome lights and you create a ground when you turn the switch on. It is possible one of the wires is frayed. I would pull the dome light down and have a look.
