Power Door Switches
Power operated doors are very convenient and open and close the doors after the switch is actuated. Mini vans are the most common vehicle to have power doors. Otherwise, power doors are uncommon. The switch may be a part of the handle or it may be a separate control on the dash or door that is power controlled. The switch can be difficult to repair or replace just because the interior door panels must be removed and access is limited to opening in the frame of the door. Even professionals sometimes have difficulty with replacing power door switches because of the cramped working space. The switch itself is not difficult to replace. It requires some electrical know how. A service manual is usually sufficient to help an amateur do-it-yourselfer through the process. Power door switches should be inspected and compared to the original part to ensure that the new part is correct.
