Uplander 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 9,285 miles


The driver's side automatic sliding passenger door on our 2006 Chevrolet Uplander opens automatically on a daily basis. This event occurs multiple times a day. The door is cued to close and then will re-open without being cued, sometimes several times in a row before finally closing and latching. This event has occurred while the vehicle was in gear (reverse). The vehicle has been to the dealership for repair of this problem a minimum of five (5) times and to date, the issue has not been resolved. The dealership has run diagnostic testing on the vehicle's computer to see if any repair codes came up, referenced bulletins from GM, all to no avail. At this point in time, GM has informed us that they do not know how to repair the vehicle.
