Question about 1998 Ford Windstar
It sounds like the latch may not have opened all the way last time you opened it and then when you tried to close it, the latch jammed on the pin.
I would get inside the van and try to force the sliding door open at the rear where it swings out on the rails. The latch is going to have to be jarred loose.
If you get it open, check and make sure the "fingers" on the latch are completely opened before closing it again, and give them some lubrication.
