My sliding doors will not open when the ignition is turned

Customer Question

Hello, my sliding doors will not open when the ignition is turned on. 2012 Honda Odyssey

They close fine, and even open when the ignition is off. But when ignition is on they will not open.If I open them with ignition off and then turn the car on, there is a constant alarm noise that doesn't close till you close the doors.

The VSA light is on. I've tried to disconnect the battery for a while to clear it with no luck.
