VEHICLE: 2004 Toyota Sienna XLE 3.3L, V6, MFI, DOHC, Eng Desg 3MZFE
Customer Concern: The sliding door will not open. If the release actuator is removed from the latch assembly the system will operate normally.
Tests: 1. At the release actuator check to see if the Black wire gets battery voltage supplied to it when the switch is pressed to on and the switch is pressed to open.
2 Supply battery voltage to the Black wire manually to see if the actuator will operate.
Potential Causes: Malfunctioning Release Actuator
Confirmed Fix: Replaced Right Power Sliding Door Latch Release Actuator
Tech Tips: When the door is operated the computer supplies battery voltage to the Black wire at the actuator but the actuator does not operate. When manually supplying voltage to the actuator the actuator makes a noise.
