Can't open the sliding door on my 1991 Toyota Previa?

If it's cold out, the rubber seals around the door can freeze up, and it wont open. But if it's not cold out, then I would either power unlock all doors, or unlock via key. Open from inside, and have someone on the outside simultaneously trying to open the door. On the outside for leverage, and just in case the child safety lock is on, and from the inside just in case the lock mechanism didnt open up all the way. The handle could also be broken, so it would have to be removed. But I wouldn't damage it unless I had access to another door handle. Hope this helps.

If your dog can open the sliding door, you can use a broom handle to keep the door shut by wedging it so that the door will not slide. This will allow a child to open the door and block the dog from opening the door. You could also keep the door locked and teach the child how to unlock the door.
