Anon, I believe it is done on the overhead console or if you mean the child prevention lock, it is a small switch by the doors latching assembly. Links below give instruction.

Sounds like the power sliding door master switch on the overhead console is either in the off position, or something has gone wrong with the switch or the wiring. I'd check that switch and perhaps even actuate is a few times. It's the one to the far right.
Most likely the problem is a broken wire in the harness - this is a common problem with these doors. You can see the harness in the track beneath the door sill. It is inclosed in a plastic 'chain like' mechanism. You can remove the entire harness as follows. Open the door 1/2 way and disconnect the connector on the inside bottom of the door. Pry out the fasteners holding the harness up to the door bottom support. remove the 2 screws on the bootm support cover. Carefully pry the end of the 'chain' down with a flat screwdriver.
Now pry up the door sill cover - it will just snap up. Pul back the door gasget at the bottom of the post and pry back the plastic post cover. You will find another connector under this near the seat belt mount. Disconnect this and barefully pry out the other harness attachments. A new cable runs about $70 from the dealer but I repaired mine. You cannot simply splice at the break because the break occured at the max stress point. Use a new piece of wire - I cut open a heavy duty extension cord and used on wire from it as these are designed to flex many times without breaking. Splice near the ends of the harness using crimps and/or solder and shrink tubing. Put it back and it should work.
first check terminals clean with steel wool both door and bpillar then spray wd 40 on the cables below on the inside looks like a chain and the other one outside along the qtr panel / Please rate my response Thank you very much
could be a partially broken wire in the wiring harness that runs in the door track. the wires are inside what looks like a plastic chain that allows it to move with the door and have seen them partially break not allowing power to flow the whole time
