Drivers side passenger door won't shut w/o help?

my driver’s side passenger door will not shut without help. I checked fuses and they are GOOD. It starts BUT stops 4 inches from closing.

Door or window? If it’s the door, was the vehicle in a traffic accident that damaged the passenger door? If it’s the door, take it to a body shop. If it’s the window, you may need a power window motor and/or the window tracks and regulator lubricated. These vans are kind of notorious for window motors failing, sometimes by getting too weak to completely raise the window. Most good shops can check this out for you.
