Re: My 2001 Chrysler Town & Country passenger sliding...
Your door panel can come off and you can access internal door locking mechanism from inside car first inspect to see all rods are hooked into plastic sleeves then make sure lock is disengaged by pulling rod towards rear of van it should then be able to be opened easily if not your locking mechanism is frozen inside of door between a pillar and door it will have to be pushed to open from inside of door panel once you do that door will open if you cant make lock work manually once this is done replace locking mechanism or rods accordingly.

I'm sorry to say but, these doors are very very complex and unless you have worked on several of them before, I must suggest bring it to a dealership. Believe me when I say this, I am a mechanical engineer and have come close to pulling my hair out while working on auto or manual sliding doors. Sorry, Thanks, Dana.
the door does not have a key reccognition system,only the ignition,
so if you use the key,without first disabling the alarm,the alarm will go off,SO use the remote to unlock the car and the key to start it....no problem....
the body controller is at fault it may need the software update from the dealer... one thing you can do is disconnect the battery for about 5 minutes then when you reconnect it... the fob will work again...
