Now the door won't move or at least I am not able to open/close it manually. It probably has some wiring issues too but the main problem at the moment is the stuck door. Why it isn't rolling on the rollers. Thxs
    You might want to start a new thread. Are you without transportation? That caravan of yours is probably in better shape than mine with 160,000 miles and I would not let a little thing like this let me part ways with it.

    Hah! I know that van, mine is a 2002. Here is a direct quote from Fixya for a door lock actuator stuck in the lock position.

    I need a bit more info to ptovife tpoyu witht he correct souiltion, but I will try to offer up a generic answer. The lock actuator is nothoing moree than a motor. If it is jammed and not moving at all, it probably is frozen and needs replacing. However, many times I've torn apart doors expecting to replace a bad actuator and have found a linkage rods jammed into door insualtion, or they have became deformed over the years and have worked their way into the inner door panel insulation padding. Without more info (front door, back door, rear hatch door,symptoms, thats all i can offer. https://www.fixya.com/cars/t10475358..._stuck_in_lock

    I have had periodic paralysis all my life. I lost my ability to walk in 2011 beginning with a spinal block, which was used for a hip fracture caused by periodic paralysis.

    No I have transportation. That is a good point to check the door linkage!! I think it is a great little van but it is just sitting (over a year) till I can figure something out. I think I'd take 4k for it...lower floor and hand controls. Thxs

    Depending on the rest of the condition, 4k would be a steal.

    The linkage is as hard to get to as the rest of the parts inside the door panel. You said the van has sat over a year. I bet in that time the battery has gone dead at least once. These vehicles operate on memory stored in onboard management systems. If the battery gets too low, problems can crop up. I suggest first charging the battery up full. Second disconnect the negative battery cable for a period of time to "reboot" the system. I'm not sure how long it might need to be disconnected if this will work. Try 2-5 minutes first and see if that activates your slider door actuator switch.
