I too had this problem. The first several times i tried the reset process (page 23 of the owners manual) it made no difference.
It appeared to me that the computer did not properly know where the door was actually located. like you , my door would not close. in fact, base on the sound, it sounded like it was trying to open when it was already open. I knew i had to figure out a way to "trick" the computer into relearning where the door was.. as crazy as it sounds
With the battery on, I opened the door with the button, before it could open fully, i closed it again with the button. I did this several times. I also experiment with shutting off the power (using the on/off button) in mid operation. Eventually it would close but pop back open again. At this point, I then did the reset procedure and it worked!
I am not a mechanic but a pretty decent electronic/computer guy. All i know is it worked!

check your door bushings in the door hinge these probably need replacing. if you can lift up on door and feel play they are wore out. common issue on these if not you can put a wood block betwwen bottom of door and body and push on top of door to bend it a little to close top tighter

SOURCE: door ajar light stays on
go to your local parts store and buy a can of PB BLASTER lubricant then open each door and spray the latch assembley really good then close and open the door 10 to 15 times. do this with each door. the door ajar light switch is located in the door latch assembley and cannot be seen so soak the latch assembleys really good so lube reaches the switch. these switches sometimes get stuck but this usually frees up the switch

can you lift the lock knob up at all?? If you can lift it and the door stays locked, the linkage inside the door is broken.. if you can't lift it up, then the linkage is most likely seized... you'll need to remove the door panel to actually see it

This may or may not work depending on exactly what is wrong with the door, I cant tell what is wrong without looking at it directly however:
You can try starting with all doors closed and unlocked, keys in hand disconnecting the battery and letting the vehicle sit for 2 min or so, then reconnect the battery. Put the key into the ignition and turn it to the on position but do not start the van. Next press the button to disable the power sliding door for the drivers side, then manually open the door fully, wait 5 seconds, then close it manually fully. Press button the button again to re-enable the power sliding door, then try to use it with the automatic feature either by pulling the handle or using your remote, this may or may not work depending on if the door has somehow become de-initialized (it should work now) however if something is broken inside the door closing mechanism or door closed/open sensors, the door will continue to malfunction.
