2002 Toyota Sienna

Dear Doctor: I own a 2002 Toyota Sienna minivan. After I replaced the battery the power sliding door stopped working. The dealer told me the power door motor needed to be replaced at a cost of $1,700. Is there a reset procedure for the power door after replacing the battery? Also where would the relay for the power door be located? I want to try replacing that first. Louis
Dear Louis: We use a web site company called Identifix for information on very complex issues. I looked on the Identifix direct hit and sure enough there is a Technical Service Bulletin on reprogramming the sliding doors (TSB#B0024-06). Factory time is 0.3 tenths of an hour to go through the procedure. If in fact the door motor is faulty then just disconnect the moving cable or chain if needed.
