It's a bit of an unusual problem. I bought the van used with the left slider not working (stuck shut). Neither inside or outside handles will open it. The van doesn't have power sliders, but upon opening the inside door panel, it turns out someone replaced the door with a power slider. All the wiring and module are in place and apparently functional.
I cannot get the door latch to release. Pulling on the manual lever (the one the handle cables are connected to) doesn't release the latch. But if I push on the door out hard enough to deflect it a bit, I hear the electric latch actuator pulling it closed. The electric and manual door lock functions operate OK.
I need the diagram so I can attempt to activate the power latch in the direction of unlatching. Can't think of any other way of getting the door open so I can replace the latch.
As I said twice already, the lever on the latch assembly does NOT release the latch. I can reach the latch lever just fine, it just doesn't work. It moves but does not release the latch. That's why I can't open the door. And that's why I need to open it with the motorized latch actuator.
The moving part of the latch (that wraps the striker) is not accessible from inside the door cavity.
I do appreciate your trying to help, but I really need the diagram and nothing else.
