Why does my Town and Country sliding door not lock?

We had several doorlock actuator’s fail in the right rear slider of our 2010 town and country. The doorlock would jam and you could not lock the door manually or with the electric button. Be thankful it failed/jammed in the unlocked position rather than the locked position.

Went back and forth with the assembly, lock and unlock worked smoothly. -Power door works fine now. Open, close, lock, unlock. -Then 2 days later, it did it again. Frozen in LOCK position. If the actuator is bad, is it strong enough to be stuck in the lock position and not move at all?

Why does my Chrysler Town and Country open easily?

In my case, once the body shop got the door panel off they were able to get a good grab hold of the bar that goes in to the actuator and they were able to jam that bar toward the actuator which unlocked the door. Once the door was unlocked, it opened easily because there was nothing wrong with the door opening mechanism- it was just stuck locked.

Why is the driver side sliding door lock stuck?

The driver side sliding door lock was stuck between the unlock and lock position and would not move at all. The door was stuck closed. I took it into the dealership and they had it fixed within 45 minutes. They said that the lock mechanism was just stuck and so they took it apart oiled it and put it back together.
