2008 Hiace - Can't open sliding door from inside


Recommended Posts


I was in the back of the Hiace Van getting some parts - it was freezing outside so I shut the sliding door.

But later I couldn't open it - had to call out to a passerby to let me out.

I assume you are supposed to be able to open the sliding door from the inside.

So where is the most likely place for the problem - the sliding door locks and opens from the outside fine

The inside handle doesn't seem loose

Could it be an electrical problem - I say this as if you lock the sliding door with the key the van does not centrally lock, but if you lock the front doors with the key it does. I have previosuly had some electrical problems - or do you think its a broken cable connecting the inside door handle?
