problem #1

Nov 032003

MPV 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 19,110 miles
Left (behind driver) rear auto-sliding door will not shut. Electric door feature must be disabled & door must be shut and re-opened manually. If not able to duplicate problem for Mazda repairperson, they would not perform service; but problem was sporadic & could not be predicted. Finally the problem persisted & lower door switch was replaced. One year later, problem is occurring again. Door terminals were cleaned B/C contacts were not making good connections.
