Both of my sliding doors are having the same problem---they open, sometimes roughly. When they close, they start to lock in place and then open again! This is extremely frustrating since I have a 4 month old baby. I'll often leave the car to go somewhere, only to find one of my sliding doors open! Can anyone offer a tip about what's going on?

We have a 2006 Honda Odyssey LX (manual doors) which both are freezing up/sticking and the passenger side now will not even open. Manual doors so definitely not an electrical problem. Believe the doors are mechanically binding, perhaps the rollers are wearing out? Did you ever get a correct solution on your problem as it sounds very similar? Thx

We have the same problem with our 2003 Odyssey not fully closing, and then opening it again. It only happens to us when the weatherstripping toward the bottom of the door is loose and gets caught in the door. My problem now is with one of the doors opening hard, as if a shock absorber (in the door) has failed.

i took our Ody to a local mechanic (not the dealer) and by this time on of the doors was completely frozen shut. i had to push with my feet on the inside of the door while he pulled on the latch and we dislodged the door, it actually fell off the van. Bottom line, both doors needed a new hinge assembly, i think the plastic roller bearings that ride in the track break down prematurely. he did the whole job both doors including the parts for $185. i was surprised. good luck.
