This September I came home from my nieces wedding and went to open my passenger side door and it wouldn't budge.. I literally had to kick the door open. It has happened on numerous occasions now, I was told it is a problem in the wiring. The wiring under the floor mats aren't protected enough and become corroded because the floor boards gets wet.

Passenger side power assist sliding door fell off of the rear sliding roller guide after it froze half open/shut. The door has been making funny sounds when opening and closing for about two weeks. The door has also been opening back up when it tries to close. The outer sliding track has bent somehow? I am guessing it is part of the noise the door has been making. After disassembly of the door and the interior compartment, it was determined to be the actuator cables making most of the noise. The plastic liner on the cables had been stripped off and the cables had been balled up and they are starting to frey. I have rebent the track to accept the sliding rollers and I have removed the cables from the door to allow the door to open and close manually.
