I've posted before about problem with the sliding cargo door takes spells not unlocking. Had in to service department acouple times already, never found a problem and door working when there each time.
Well door hadn't unlocked in acouple weeks so took it to shop. I ask them before taking van into sevrice area that if they didn't find a problem again, could they disconnect the sliding door lock.
And would this interfere with other doors power locks?
When they bought it back out, they couldn't find anything wrong and door had been working fine. But they had disconnected the power lock on that door and it won't interfere with other power-locks. Only problem would be the flashing light on doghouse console would blink when keey was in ignition. I ask would this draw power while van was shut off and key removed and the guy said no.

OK, I left and later when tring to lock up the van found they had been wrong. When used remote to lock doors they lock the unlock by themselves.
Tried using key to lock, didn't work.

So, will un-hooking one door lock cause these problems?

I thought I'd follow up just in case someone else has this problem with sliding door.
Went back to dealer. After hooking sliding door lock back up> "THIS TIME" the lock won't work. First time in shop for it to act like it does here at hoem.
They ended up putting a actulater(sp?) and then deceided the latch was not working properly, a spring was not working correctly. Also, said that when actulate was replaced that noted the spring needed to be checked out.
Anyway, even though our warranty is over they didn't charge me anything since it has been a ongoing complaint.
