Question about 1998 Chevrolet Express

1 Answer

The sliding door on my 1998 Chevy Express won't close all the way in the back.I had trouble with it in winter and the metal got bent around the back latch from people trying to close it before I discovered that the latch had moved around. I got it to lock in the back but it dose not close flush.

you need to remove the door trim. Remove linkage attached to latch. Usually the latch will be secured with 3-4 large phillips or torx screws. Remove old latch and reverse procedure to install new latch

2 possible solutions. First clean the door pin contacts(multiple spring loaded pins on door side and matching plate on body) with a scotch pad until shiny gold color again. Second the rear edge of the door should be 1mm inside the body opening when closed. If those are correct it is going to take a software download from a dealer to the door control module to fix this. Otherwise you will have to pull the psd fuse and breaker from the right side dash fuse box.

It sounds as though one of the proximity sensors is faulty. Also try giving the tracks for the door a good shot of white spray lithium grease. The door may be binding enough so that the emergency reverse is kicking in.

Repair Van sliding door runner


If the Pontiac Trans Sport Van door is in the process of closing or opening (via motor), and the vehicle's ignition is engaged prior to the door fully closing or opening, the motor immediately stops. At this point, the only recourse is to manually close the door, as none of the power switches/handles respond again until the door has been manually closed. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have a 2001 Chevy Express 3500 15 passenger van. A few months ago the power windows started going out, as in the would not work but if I opened the driver door just right it would work. Now they have...


The usual source for the window problem is the wiring between the inside front door and the kick panel where the wires run in a harness and are usually rubber booted. Everytime the door opens and closes the wires are bent back and forth and they break.

If you haven't already solved this, Start at the rear corner light. Next to the liftgate there are two plastic covers to open with a flat screwdriver. Remove the two phillips screws and pull light straight back firmly to remove the light. Let it hang. Remove the two phillips screws holding the metal track cover behind the light on the side of the van. Open the door, and remove one track cover screw with a 10 mm socket at front of cover looking back in door jam. Close door and slide track back about an inch and then pull straight out from the side of the van revealing slider track. Hope this helped

1999 Chevy Express Van Side Door will not open


You need to replace the handle itself. The inside of the handle where the metal cable fitting attaches causes too much strain on the plastic and the molded groove breaks. Ford has the same problem. I don't know why these car man. dont just go back to all metal exterior handles. If you have time you can probably fix it with epoxy and washers, but the fastest way is to get one aftermarket or from a junkyard. Hope this answers your question.
Please remember to rate this fix.

2004 chevy astro van back seat right door won't open


not sure about your specific vehicle but i do know that in the winter, when a door closes, it grabs the pin in your doorjam like a lobster claw closes on a finger. if any moister is inside the mechinism, it can freeze very easily. also if you pull on the door handles tp try to open it...if the door handle moves freely, then you either bent or popped the rod that goes from the latch mechanism to the handles and you would have to take off the interior wall of the door to get to it and fix the rod or put it back...it used to happen to older cars allk the time.

Locked out of 96 chevy cavalier


You can use a wire hanger with a hook bent onto the end fairly easily if you slide it down the window and try to feel around to hook onto the lock mechanism. It may take a bit of patience, but I got into my 2000 with not too much trouble. Then do what I did immediately afterwards - get another key cut to keep in your wallet...

Door very stiff won't close tight


I have the same problem with the side doors of my 04 express. I put penetrating oil on the hinge pin with a hypodermic needle (hard to find). It is important that the oil gets into the hinge. I bent one set of hinges and broke a hinge because I waited too long to oil the hinge. The door may not close correctly because the hinge may be slightly bent. Keep all other hinges well lubed especially during the winter months when the hinges can be exposed to road salt. Fixing a bent hinge is difficult at best.
