Question about 1998 Toyota Sienna
First one door, then 10 minutes later the other door will not budge. Its like they are frozen shut, but its not cold enough. We tried manually unlocking, remote unlocking, opening from inside the van, outside the van, car on, car off...nothing. cannot open either sliding door. I have a similar issue just couple of days back. While I tried to open the sliding door from inside, the switch got pushed inside and didn't popout. I came out through other door and tried to open the problem ones, it never opens thought the switch now back to normal position. I tried locking unlocking throught remote and manual as well, still no luck. I'm googling it all over now, If I find a solution, will post here.

If you can remove the inner door panel you will see a maze of cables running to the various locking points on the sliding door. If the cable going to the FRONT latch on the sliding door is broken (or in my case, simply dislodged inside the door) the door acts as if it is frozen shut.
The front cable is short, and easily replaced even by a newbie mechanic.
