Does what it says it does
While you could probably find this part less expensive elsewhere, I chose to purchase from 1 A Auto because they went through the trouble of making an installation video. The part fit and works as described. And the video does a great job of showing you how to install this part in the rear driver side sliding door of the 2006 Chrysler T&C. HOWEVER, it would have been extremely helpful to have the installation video, or even a description, of installation in the PASSENGER side sliding door. That is a completely different, and much more difficult, installation. What I was expecting (a ten minute installation job) was not what happened. I would have given this five stars had there been any instruction available for DIY-er to install on the passenger side slider.

The install was easy thanks to the many 1a Auto videos. It fit perfectly and the extra arm that came with it made it able to fit both driver and passenger side. I noticed that the gear that hold the arm on has more teeth than the OEM one I took off hopefully preventing slippage in the future. It works great.

First time
The actuator was very easy to install other then big hands and small space sometimes made it difficult. The video provided for replacing the actuator also was very informative which made it easier to see what needed to be done before starting the process.

Door lock actuator
I purchased a door lock actuator for my van. Installed fine and is working properly. This is the second one I have purchased in a year. Hopefully this one will last. The other was not purchased from A1auto. I am hopeful that if it fails, A1 will warranty the part being it is an aftermarket replacement. Great price, on time, right part. You have my future business.

Works well, a little bigger than OEM
Great price, works well. It is a little bigger than the OEM for the driver side sliding door. Took a little more maneuvering to place in but again works great.

Video Instruction
The video on how to install the part was a great help.

direct replacement, great quality
Thanks to the 1A auto youtube video and the direct replacement part, my car doors are working again. I purchased this van with both sliding doors not locking. I watched the video and ordered the parts. They came in a short amount of time and was able to replace both in a reasonable amount of time. Thanks

Unit fit is excellent. However I put one of these on this door about two years ago and am now replacing. Unit was locked up tight could not manually move.

Great item, great value, super easy install
This was a great buy and a super easy self install. The video online was spot on as well, and it worked great.

Actuator keeps jamming
I replaced in Feb 2017 and the door stopped working in May 2017 . Only 3 months! The door could not open manually or respond to the key when pressed. I pulled the part out and the arm was stuck. With some considerable force I was able to get it moving freely again. I reinstalled and it worked fine again for about 4 open/close cycles, then jammed again. I will contact customer service for a replacement but with shipping costs It wont save me much. Besides I would get the same part to reinstall again and again.

Relatively easy install
I like the fact that the kit is universal and can be used for either the driver or passenger side sliding door. The item items has performed perfectly. Make sure you install and assemble the connecting bar and wiring. perfectly. Youtube was my resource. Some door panel pins may get damaged in disassembly and might need to be replaced. Part performed perfectly.

Great value!
This is a perfect replacement part. Delivery was fast, and the repair video was tremendous.
July 6, 2017
Great Price
Part was a perfect fit for my van. Cost was 1/2 of the same part locally. The power door works again!

Great product, great price!
We needed a replacement actuator for the sliding door of our 2004 Dodge Caravan, and after watching the instructive and well done video by the folks at 1A Auto, I decided to give them a try, for $25.95 and free shipping to boot. The part fit perfectly and worked like a charm. We are back with a working door lock for a fraction of the cost of a Mopar part. Very pleased and very impressed with 1A Auto! Thank you.

Exact part but error on tool list
This part was exactly as described and worked the way it was supposed to. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because the small screw holding the arm was not a Philips Head as described. It was also smaller than my T10 Torx. I never did figure out what the head actually was, i ended up using a small hex that barely unscrewed before it stripped the head. I replaced the screw with the one in the actuator that was already on the car.

This is my third actuator. First two were Dorman from Amazon and one ot those failed within a year. . This one feels a bit more sturdy. So, without some time, I cant give 5 stars. Comment on Video: With Dodge, you dont have access to the screw. You could drill a hole, but much easier to remove the whole bracket via the three Torx screws on the bask of the door. And even with T&C, if you remove the bracket there is much less chance of losing the little screw.

Drivers rear sliding door actuator 2004 Dodge Caravan
I am 72 years old but my five-year-old grandson could have done this job. The instruction video was awesome very easy to put down. The job was done in a half an hour or more. Very satisfied with the product. Write your review here. It must be at least 50 characters long. Consider whether you would recommend this product and what you like or dislike about it.

Part sent without the drivers side handle
This was sent without the drivers side handle for the slide. If I had not had the old one. it would of not worked. They need to better QA the parts
November 4, 2017
Excellent OEM fit
With the exception of the arm being held on by a T9 torque screw, the part went on with no problems at all. If you have the right tools, it fits right in just like OEM

great price / fast service
The left sliding door on my 06 Caravan could not be opened. I took it to a local garage and was told it would take 1 hour of labor and $150.00 for a new actuator for a total of $232.50. I then went to Napa for a price for this actuator. Their price was $65.00. Then I checked the internet for a better price and found 1AAUTO at $25.95. I could not believe it. I ordered it and received it in 3 days. I then found a mechanic who would just charge for his labor @$82.50 an hour. Total cost for fix was $108.45. THANKS 1AAUTO for putting $124.05 back in my pocket. .

Cheap, works great
I purchased this after being recommended by a youtube video. It fit and works perfectly in my 2010 Chrysler Town and Country. The "compatible" model for my year was far more expensive. Be aware - the installation procedure for this part is DIFFICULT. You have to pull everything but the window out of the door.
December 31, 2017
Great Product
Shipped fast. Showed up in great condition. Works perfectly. Website even had a video of how to install it, Very helpful.
February 6, 2018
Perfect fit
Unit replaced the original part perfectly. The "how to" video was very helpful. Dont go without door locks if this is your problem. Moderately easy to replace. Do it yourself and save a bunch of money over the dealership.
February 23, 2018
Easy Fix
Our Dodge Caravan has had an issue on both sides with the actuator not working. The right side is a bit easier, but in less than a half hour each, they both work as new.
February 25, 2018
Problem fixed.
Problem fixed and no problem since. Video right on.

Door lock actuator
Everything fine until it was discovered that no hole existed to access attaching screw on passenger side of 05 Grand Caravan. After reviewing another tutorial on You Tube I learned to drill a hole in door for access. The actuator works fine
April 21, 2018
Works fine, fits Dodge Grand Caravan 2011-2016
I bought this when watched a youtube video where the guy stated that this parts fits newer Grand Caravans, so decided to buy it. It was quite challenging to install this into the minivan, but when installed, worked just fine. After a few weeks of using it works good, the time will show how this thing is reliable

Installation of door lock actuator 2005 Chrysler T&C
This was a first time order from 1A Auto. I must say the entire experience was first class. The website is easy to navigate and finding the correct part was quick and problem free. The price, in my opinion, is right about where it needs to be. Maybe not the cheapest, but certainly not the most expensive. When you factor in the service, excellent packaging and installation videos youre getting a very good deal. I will certainly use 1A Auto again as the need arises.

door lock
havent had a chance to install but as with all 1aauto parts iam sure it will be right and the video will help me do it. thanks
July 9, 2018
Perfect replacement
The actuator worked perfect once installed. I only have one minor complaint. I purchased the actuator for the left door so I had to change the arm. The installation video indicated I would need a Phillips screwdriver to change arms, but the screw head was a T6. Fortunately I have one of those computer tool kits which worked fine. Just thought other should know...

Failed within three months
Installed the part in May, it had failed by late July. Worse yet, it fails in the lock position, so I had to open up the door panel and remove the lock in order to get the door open at all. Part was an exact match for the old one and easy to install if you know what youre doing, but failing after less than 3 months is pretty bad.
August 14, 2018
Exactly like OEM
Went in just like the OEM part several weeks ago. Doing is job with no signs of problems so far!

Power Door lock assembly
The original door lock operated intermittently. I googled how to replace the lock and found the video very detailed and helpful.After viewing it several times, I decided to order on line....(after I called the local auto part store and found out it was nearly $60.00). From you it was only $27.95. The online ordering was very fast and easy. Thanks for your help.
September 17, 2018
It worked perfect and was easy to install thanks to the videos y’all have available. Thanks!
September 24, 2018
Works well
Product is exactly as advertised. When installing on the passenger side of a 2007 Caravan the mounting screw fastener for the actuator is behind the door panel. I thought it was easier to remove the 3 screws holding the entire lock assembly to the sliding door, remove and reattach the lock actuator and then refasten the lock assembly to the door with the three torx screws (T27 on a Dodge Caravan). Wish I would have replaced this 3 months ago - its great to have the door lock working again.

Customer Q&A
Ask a question to 1A Auto customers who purchased the product
Who makes this? I used a Dorman part which failed in a year.
John R August 4, 2018
We have a few different aftermarket companies build these parts specifically for us, as our 1A Auto house brand. They are manufactured to the same OEM specifications as the original part that came with your vehicle. If you have any further questions, please dont hesitate to ask.
Elesban A August 6, 2018
I dont know who makes this but one of mine failed after two years. They replaced it quickly at not charge to me.
Jon L August 6, 2018
I seen your video & replaced the actuator. but now both the key transmitters dont want to work any idea why?
Nathan G October 16, 2018
I don’t what he is referring to when he talks about a key transmitter. If he is referring to the button on the posts in front of the second row of seats, there is a switch to turn them on and off. I think it is part of the childproof system. The vehicle instructions tell how to turn them on and off.
