Question about Cars & Trucks
I have a 2001 Ford Windstar LX with Dual Manual Sliding Doors. Why is the door handle so hard to open? It seems like you have to really yank it to get it to open. It slides just fine, otherwise.
Check adjustment of the door locking mechanism. It is possible that the door lock is jamming on the striker plate because it has fallen slightly

Thanks for using FixYa. Locate your DVD player’s manual Eject button. It is usually a small hole located underneath the DVD drawer.
Use a stiff wire, a paper clip or safety pin—into the hole. Push gently and the drawer should open partway. Gently pull the drawer the rest of the way open and remove the CD.
Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.

I know you said the fuses are good, but try pulling fuse 13 in the fuse box by the right front footwell. Leave it out for 1 minute, then reinstall and try the doors. If the doors have lost their initialization this will reset them.

i have not yet corrected the concern but have found the source. in this particular model the fuel door has a safety lock feature that keeps the door from opening when you are fill the fuel. I have found the lever broken on the switch now all i have to do is figure out how to replace it

the child lock rod may have been extended...
open the driver side door, and with a skinny finger, push that child lock rod back in towards the rear of the sliding door
use the passenger side as reference
once you pushed it in, you can now open it from the inside handle
