Question about Chrysler Sebring
The lock on the side of the car appears to be jammed (I can't close my door), however the "lock" and "unlock" buttons make noise like they are working
The latch may be "tripped".
If you open the other door and look at the latch in the side of the door you may see the difference.
Sometimes you can take a screwdriver and move the wheel in the latch back to "open" position. The wheel turns as the door hits the striker post.

Well first open it up completly. Remove the battery. Get a hair dryer and dry it out completly. Then let it stand for several hours to cool down. Make sure that the contacts where the battery fits are clean of any rust, or corrosion. Now install a new battery. It should work.

pull the outside handle and unlatch the latching assembly by hand by insertins a screwdriver where the striker would normally be if the door were closed - and pry out.
You can adjust the striker by loosening the bolts, and moving it in toward the cabin.
If the door itself is droopy, adjustments are made by the hinge by loosening the bolts and lifting up or down.
Multiple attempts will be necessary to get it just right.
Dont get frustrated if it doesnt fit properly in the 1st or second attempt.

SOURCE: Back door wont unlock
I have a 1999 Chrysler T&C 3.8 liter like yours and it sounds
like you are having the same the same problem I had.
Every time you hit the door unlock or lock button, it made a loud
buzz like you just missed a question on a game show. ;-)
It turned out the problem was the rear lift gate lock actuator. The part costs
about $40 from the dealer if I can recall correctly.
The repair involves: 1st removing the middle and rear seats to get
access from the inside to the rear gate
(obviously you will have to remove the seats from the side doors
since the rear gate won't open yet)
Remove the plastic inside rear gate panel and molding (phillips screws)
Once you remove the panel, you may see a way to manually
open the rear gate. As I recall, I think there was a access opening
covered from the inside with a black weather/insulation tape.
Carefully removing this out of the way gave access to a way to
manually open the gate, making the rest of the work easy.
Remove the electrical connector and the mounting bolts
to remove from the actuator. It is attached to the inside
rear gate with 2 or 3 bolts (10 mm?)
Remove the old one and replace the part, then put it all back
together, make sure you reconnect the electrical connector
Takes about an hour for the whole job (max)
Hope this helps,
