Hi. My guess it that the sliding door pinch sensor may have failed. This sensor detects when something - or someone - is in the way of the door. This sensor then informs the sliding door control module, which in turn refuses to close the door. Of course, the description you gave was rather vague, so a lot of other things could cause your problem too. This includes wiring problems, a problem with the door close motor, and mechanical problems with the door itself. I suggest you have a trained technician, such as one from YourMechanic, inspect why your door is not closing and replace any damaged parts.
