'02 Grand Caravan Sport - Power Sliding Door Problem

Hello! We recently purchased a used Caravan and have had it for a couple of months now - it has just under 20k miles and everything worked great until about a week ago. Our power sliding door will not
close using the motor - it gets about 2-3 inches from closing and then it just opens back up. It closes just fine manually. I checked for obstuctions and found none. I have tried with and without the child safety lock on and have witnessed no noticeable difference.
For such low miles, I am suprised to see that it's having problems and am hoping that it's an easy fix. Any ideas?

fwiw, an interesting Google hit:
"Loose weather strip tricks the power sliding door into thinking there is an obstruction making it misbehave during opening or closing. The weather strip must be replaced."

I did a search and pulled up a list of TSB's on alldata. Thinking TSB = recall, I called the dealer and they said that there have only been 3 recalls on my van and tha twasnt one of them. So, I guess my question is what is a TSB? I iknow it's an acronym for Technical Service Bulletin but what does that mean to me? The info on alldata simply looked like a list of potential issues but had no solutions..
