I know it sounds elementary, but have you checked the fuses? That is the first area. The fuse will either be under the hood contained in a black box, or under the driver's side dash. Let us know what you find out before we go further.

Those vans had a poor wire harness design for that door and over time they would experience a broken wire through fatique. Find the wiring harness for the motor and check it out. You will be looking for a black wire. It will be covered by a plastic cover. While you are doing that make sure the track is well lubricated in case that is sticking and causing the sensors to cut out the motor also.

chandler,
I did check the fuses and they are ok i also lubed the door really good thinking it was sticking and the sensor was not letting it open. I will check the wiring and get back to you.

Thanks,
Dave

Thanks for letting us know, but get it fixed right. The tape may not hold forever and a day. Heat shrink tubing may have been a better menu choice.
