Why won’t my 2016 Chrysler Town and Country sliding door open?

I went to unlock my car this morning and load it up for a road trip, but my sliding doors are stuck. Why won’t my 2016 Chrysler Town and Country’s sliding doors open?

If your 2016
Chrysler Town and Country
’s sliding doors won’t open, the most likely reason is that the sliding door actuator has failed. It failed when in the “lock” position, so your doors won’t budge.
But, before you dial a trusted mechanic, you can try resetting the fuses to see if that takes care of the issue. To do it, unplug the J3 and J11 fuses, wait a couple of minutes, then plug them back in. Sometimes, the tried-and-true IT solution for computers also works for cars: turn it off and back on again.
If that doesn’t work, it’s probably time to contact a mechanic and check and see if your
car warranty
is still valid. If your car is still under warranty, the repair may be covered.
We hope this information is helpful and you can open your doors ASAP!
