There are no noticible noises when trying to open remotely or by switch. There is aslo still resistance when opening manually just as before power opening stopped. Please advise.

You need to have the body control computer scanned for codes. When the doors fail they will set a code which typically will lead to what has failed. It could be the drive module (very expensive) but it could also be something as simple as a door switch. Each part is monitored by the computer and should set a code if they fail. Unfortunately your best chance of finding someone knowledgeable is going to be at a dealer, but if you deal with a good independent shop they can tackle it for you as long as they have a good scanner.
