Pontiac Engineering Analysis EA07019: POWER SLIDING DOOR

2005 Pontiac Montana


Structure:Body:Door:Hinge And Attachments

ODI evaluated General Motors' (GM) data, conducted consumer interviews, inspected and tested MY 2005-2007 GM minivans with regard to the alleged defect of a power sliding door (PSD) opening while the vehicle is out of park.ODI identified a high warranty claim rate.however, these claims are related to various problems associated with doors not properly opening or closing and not specifically to doors opening while driving.the condition of the PSD reversing direction during the closing sequence is consistent with an obstruction of the door, or with improper alignment of the door, and this is addressed in GM technical service bulletin # 07-08-64-007 and bulletins # 07-08-64-007A through D.ODI's evaluation of the PSD system notes numerous safeguards to preclude both unintentional and intentional power opening of the PSD while the vehicle is in motion.a safety-defect trend has not been identified at this time.accordingly, this investigation is closed.[see document file for additional information regarding this resume.]
