07 EX-L Drivers sliding door stuck

I have looked through a number of threads and found similar issues to my own, but not quite the same.

The battery in my 07 EX-L drained the other night when the passenger sliding door didn't shut all the way. The problems on that door is another story....

My problem is, I can't manually open the driver's side door at all. It acts like it is locked. The power locks work fine. The door is unlocked. It just wont budge.

I have tried resetting the computer, pulling fuses, pushing the door from the inside. Nothing.

Is there any kind of emergency release or something on these doors?

Any help would greatly be appreciated.

So yeah.....the door now works after I did nothing....

I had already driven the car around for about an hour and let it idle in the driveway for about 45m.

I am not sure what made it start working, but it does. Guess now we are back to the daily beeping and crappy operation of the passenger side sliding door.

I haven't came accross this kinda problem, but have you turn OFF the power sliding door switch (on left side of your dash, near driverside vent) and try to open/close it manually ? Have you try this after you've restored the power ? I hope this will help resolve your problem.

If the power slide door control unit has lost power for arty reason (battery disconnected, etc), the doors must be re-homed before they will work properly. The power sliding door control unit must relearn the door's home position so it can use the revolution sensor to keep track of the door's position when it is moving.

1. Erase the sliding door DTCs by removing the No. 7 fuse from the under-dash fuse/relay box.
2. Turn off the Main switch for the doors. Make sure the ignition switch is in LOCK (0).
3. Fully close the power sliding door manually (the control unit must see the full latch switch and the ratchet switch closed at the same time).
4. Turn the ignition switch to ON (II). Turn on the Main switch.
5. Test the door operation with the power sliding door switch, the remote transmitter, and the door handles.


If the battery terminal is disconnected or No. 7 (7.5 A) fuse in the driver's under-dash fuse/relay box is removed while the power sliding door is operating, the power sliding door will not be able to be opened or closed automatically until it is reset. To reset the system, fully close the sliding door manually. Once the battery terminals are reconnected or No. 7 (7.5 A) fuse in the driver's under-dash fuse/relay box is replaced, the power sliding door system will automatically reset. Make sure the power sliding door operates properly.
