Door opens then half way before it fully open it closes

My car has 72000 miles.
My car's transmission is unknown to me.

A: Hi there. I’ve done some research and found...

Hi there. I’ve done some research and found that the sliding door on this vehicle has a chain at the bottom with a wire harness that runs through the chain. During operation, when opening, this chain coils upon itself and binds the harness. Over time the harness is twisted as such an innumerable amount of times. This constant twisting weakens the wires inside the harness and they eventually break. An inspection of this harness may reveal this exact condition; of course, the door motor, sensors, and switches could also pose concerns. Having a qualified technician perform an inspection is sure way to land an accurate diagnosis and avoid replacing unnecessary parts. Your Mechanic has several technicians available that can assist you with an electrical problems inspection.
