to confirm you can not manually open either door, or you mean by the power option (hitting the button)? if manually there will be some resistance, from inside or outside, (child safety locks not the issue), the bottom of the door runs along a track, a rock,pebble, kid toy can sometimes get wedged in, and if one sensor detects a blockage, it will not open, to make sure the track is clear, the door should be opened, lol...are the locks working properly, as in you hit power lock/unlock and they are functioning...

Thank You for your response .. Yes the locks are working. and yes neither door will open manually or automatically the drivers side sometimes in can manually open it about a foot and that's it..
