NOTICE No: MT000003729
MODEL: Mazda MPV YEAR: 2002
SUBJECT: Rear power sliding doors are inop

Symptoms and Conditions:

The rear power sliding doors will not open or close when any of the buttons are pressed (i.e., remote control, buttons on 'B' pillar and buttons on the lower left corner of the dash near the main switch).

Also, when pressing any of the power door buttons, the 'beep' is not heard.

Repair Procedure: 

If the entire Power Sliding Door (PSD) system is not working, check the following items that could prevent the doors from opening or closing:

  1. CHECK FOR DIAGNOSTIC TROUBLE CODES (DTCs): Use the 2002 MPV Workshop Manual procedure found on page 09-02A-4 for pulling DTCs. Please check both the left and right side doors and be sure to list the DTCs (if any) on the Repair Order and provide this information to the Technical Assistance Hotline operator when calling for assistance.
  2. POWER DOOR LOCK SWITCH: if the doors have have been locked by pressing the lock switch or locked manually, the rear doors will not open when pressing any of the PSD switches.
  3. PSD MAIN SWITCH: if the main switch is not in the 'on' position, the doors will not operate. The main switch is 'on' when the button is sticking in the most outward position and you can see the red outline around the switch.
  4. ROOM FUSE: if the room fuse is loose, not pushed all the way into its socket, missing or open, the PSD system will not operate. The room fuse is a 15 amp fuse (located at 7th position from the top on far left side of the fuse box).
  5. BATTERY: if the battery voltage is low, the PSD system may not operate.
  6. RESET THE PSD SYSTEM: to reset the PSD system, either pull the ROOM fuse (and step on the brake pedal with the fuse out) or disconnect the negative battery cable and re-connect.
