Default caravan automatic door not working

I am usually on the Dodge RAM forum, I figured I would post this up here. My wife has a 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan and only one of the doors opens automatically when you hit the remote. The other one doesnt open. Is there any tricks here or something to lok for. I read once I may have a broken wire or something. Does anybody have any good advice on how to fix.



Thank You

Common fail point is the wire bundle that runs along the bottom of the door sill. It's so common Chrysler had a recall on 2010 or 11s for it. This video shows you how to gain access and inspect for broken/chaffed wires in the bundle.

Also ck the button on the inside of the roof too. Make sure its not in the off position. As Couger41 had said,The wires in the track are a coomon problem.
