In my case (on the right door being completley dead and manual button stuck) it had nothing to do with the fuel door, since the right door is not disabled ever by the fuel door. My cause of the problem was the door lock actuator module being worn out internally. I replaced the door lock actuator module (a sub assembly of the entire door latch/lock/motor assembly) and all is well. The part was about $73 from the Chrysler dealer. Afterward, I actually dissected the door lock actuator, and could see how the internal mechanism had jammed. By the way, the module had changed revisions (been supersceded) several times. the part number I got off the web was outdated. I'm really glad I physically took the part to the dealer and had him look up the latest, by vehicle and year, NOT by the part number off the item, or found on the web!
Had the same problem on a 1996. The interlock on the fuel fill door(that won't let the door slide open when you're gassing up) was disconnected- as I recall there is a rod that had popped loose from it's linkage. To access this you have to take the panel off on the inside. You can just barely get it from around where the front of the armrest is for the LH middle seat. 2002, I'm assuming you have power sliding door? Sounds like you've got no power there but I'm not familiar with that beast.

check mechanism on working doors. In my car if I move the catch on the door(click it like in closed position)like it was closed,then when I open the handle it releases open;this shows me closing/opening. Spray penetrating fluid on the metal/mechanism,possibly rusty and prevents smooth actions. Hope this helps.
The car might be stucked in Valet mode. Use the black key that you have to open the trunk, it overrides the
Valet Mode. The key goes in a hole that is between the X and the K on
the emblem on the rear of the car.
ok this is what you do to get in without AAA or a locksmith. find a long piece of metal bendable wire. (metal coat hanger) and make it striaght and make a hook on the end of it. Next find a wedge (door wedge works). put the wedge in the side of the door. where the front door meets the rear door. and push it in to slightly open the door. Its easiest to insert to wedge at the top side corner near the top of the window and slide the wedge down to near the door handle to make the opening wider. next (with the wedge stuck in the door crack) slide the long metal wire into the opening at the top of the door corner and either press the unlock switch or grab the door handle and open the car. good luck! hope this helps ya
Remove the screw covers from the arm rest and remove the screws. Use a one inch stiff putty knife and slide between the door and the door panel. Move it right or left until you hit the retaining clip. Gently pry the door panel upward until the clip releases. Repeat this all the way around the bottom & both sides. When all are released push the door panel upward releasing in from the edge of the window opening.
either something jammed in track/lock-- or actuator rod broke or disconnected from lock --need to remove interior door panel to get to lock release and latch check all rods and clips for damage or missing repair or replace as necessary u can manually unlock the door at latch if something was jammed or stuck in latch
You probably have a burnt out door lock soleniod, it's part of the latch, stuck in the locked position, you have to pry the latch from the inside, to release the catch, just replace the latch when done. GOOD LUCK, RDJRP
The fuel-filler door release is located on the floor
to the left of the driver.s seat. To open the fuel-
filler door, pull up the release. To lock, close the
fuel-filler door securely.
You may have 2 issues going on at the same time.
1. The child lock safety latch is up, preventing you from opening the door from the inside.
2. The inside clip to the rod that opens the door from the out side could of come off from closing the door to hard. Or the lock itself is getting stuck.
Roll the window all the way down, and look through the window crack with a flash light and see if any of the rods are just hanging and not connected.
If there are you can try using a slim jim with the cut out part facing up and try to catch the latch and pull up this could open the door.
Or you can try to take off the door panel from the inside, however this is very difficult and should be done by a professional becuse you don't want to break any thing or cause more dammage.
Once the door panel is off you can then pull the inside door release rod and open the door.
One more thing you can try: Pull the inside handle and the out side handle at the same time while having some on pull or push on the door, it just might be stuck and need a little force to open!
