make sure you door switch on the left side of your steering wheel is on. U might have to use the switch next to the steering wheel to operate it, if it is confused. Dont force the door manually as it can jam the cable and/or hurt the motor for the door. If it is on and there is no noise from your motor go after your fuses. If its motor has no noise at all it could be your motor gave out. Hopefully not but if the motor did go out two options are to replace it with a new or used out of a junk yard or turn the door to manual you would have to eliminate its cable in the door. But thats if you have no other options.
