Hello. The symptoms you are experiencing can be caused by a few things. The first thing I would do is check to make sure that all the fuses are in good shape and that none are blown. It may be possible that the fuse for sliding doors has blown and needs to be replaced. If the fuses all check out, then it may be possible that the sliding door actuators themselves are the issue. These are located inside the door and would require disassembly of the door and panel to access. If you need an inspection conducted by a professional, a certified technician can diagnose the door and guide you with the proper repairs.
