Try cleaning the paint off of the motor bracket where the bolts run through it to the wall of the bus. I had issues with the electric doors and that was the problem.

If you can't handle the answer, don't ask the question

I will try that in the morning. Does anyone know how these doors are wired? Does the door switch control the ground or positive feed, is there a fuse or breaker for this circuit or just the four relays above the door?

I checked another bus this morning and found that my problem bus wasnt getting the power feed it needed...my guess is a broke wire because all fuses and breakers are good..I simply ran a new feed wire from ign. switch with an inline fuse. Door is working.
