First off you need to check for any restrictions in the door channel. There is a possible concern with the electronic latch within the door not catching nor relaesing. I recommend as a first step you reprogram both key fobs. Then try the reset procedure.

Reply to Chris (aka-Moose)'s Post: What exactly is "key fobs"? I can not reset the door because it will not open at all after I closed it "manually".
Expert:  Chris (aka-Moose) replied 9 years ago.
The key fobs are the remote buttons which you use to remotely open the door locks and side doors.

Have you used a scan tool to pull any trouble codes from the module which controls the doors.
