    sliding door sensor ?

    Can anyone tell me where the sensor is that tells that the sliding doors are closed? I'm getting the constant 'door open' tone when I shift out of park and think maybe cleaning where the sensor makes contact would solve the issue. Thanks

    It depends on what van you drive (we can't just assume you are in a 05+ van because I have seen many folks post stuff in the wrong forums).

    If you are in a 05+ van, on the rear side of the door (when the door is open), there is a metal bracket. There are two round things a couple of inches below. Perhaps that's something. In addition, on the same side towards the seat facing outward is a rubber thing that you can push in and it will turn your interior lights off so that too is a sensor that gets pressed when the doors close. It has to be between the two round things on

    More importantly, with this issue you are facing, are your interior lights staying on too? If they are its that rubber switch thingy I suppose.

    When looking for help, details are everything.

    '05 Touring. No interior lights on and no door open warning on the instrument panel. Just the constant 'door open' irritating pain in in the ass tone.

    I've tried manually pushing those buttons you're talking about to no avail.

    I visited the dealer this morning with this exact problem.

    The tech read about eight codes, but there was some kind of a problem communicating with the dash module (??) and they are ordering a new module. Please excuse the non-technical explanation, but it pretty much went over my head and I have no paperwork.

    Other than visiting the dealer, I can tell you that the tone on my 08 can be stilled by turning off the door Master Switch on the dash. Good luck!

    I can't recall if its the same on our 05 as it was on the 01, but we had that problem on the 01 and there is an array of contacts in the post where the door closes. The dealer, after fixing it said next time it happens, just take a pencil eraser and clean the contacts.

    The new generation (05+) don't have those contacts anymore.

    Unhappy

    I'm having the same problem, as of yesterday, in my 2006 EX. In reverse or drive I am getting a constant tone (alarm), as if a door were open. All doors seem closed and secure. No door lights on the dash. Of note, it is about 5 degrees F here in Massachusetts right now.

    So I guess my question is, is the little rubber button that pushes in on the door frame the only door sensor on the '05+ models, or are there others? They all seem to be clear of ice and push in and out easily on mine.

    Thanks for any help,
    bertros
