Each door has on or two contacts that touch one or two other contacts when the door is closed. These contacts get dirty over time and don't make contact in order for the warning light to go off. You can clean the contacts with a cleaning solution and a scuff pad or cloth. I believe this will fix your problem. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

When the belt jammed the door, it probably broke the actuator. See if your parts store can get you a reman actuator. Or go to a salvage yard.

Your problem is the door thinks that it is already locked and closed. You need have the sliding door unlocked, have someone pull the handle as if they were going to open the door and then use a tool to "Open" the latch that normally would hold the door closed.

From the back of the front door slide your hand in the sliding door crack and find the child-safety-lever. Push the lever up and/or down while moving the sliding door manual lock/unlock button to the up position. Also works on the non-powered sliding door.
