Wheelchair Van Doors

Okay I`ll ask. I have disabilities and bought a 2001 Ford Windstar wheelchair van with a braun chair lift installed.


Now my question is, and my problem is: my sternum never healed and the sliding door with the lift opens but only by manual means not power like left side that really does not help me at all.

I am a senior on pension and garages charge 100 bucks an hour just to look. The van and lift run very well but the right passenger .

Can the motor for that door be disconnected during installation of the lift ?? I really don`t see why it would be. Every thing clears well.

IS IT A STANDARD THING TO DISCONNECT THIS CONVERSION VAN DOOR TO BE USED WITHOUT POWER, AND CAN SOME ONE TELL ME WHERE TO LOOK IF IT WAS DISCONNECTED DURING LIFT INSTALATION SO AT LEAST I CAN TELL A MECHANIC WHERE TO LOOK FOR THE FOR THE DISCONNECTED WIRE. I HATE TO SEE THEM GUESSING AT $100 AN HOUR

THANKS ANY ONE
