Arrow 1990 Nissan Maxima Door Lock Problem

My 1990 Nissan Maxima does not want to open the passenger side door with the power locks. Its not jammed or anything. I took the door panel off and I hear a strange clicking noise inside the "controller" (the box that several wires plug into dirrectly below the power window switch) whenever I unlock the door manually. Besides this being the problem, I can only see it being a problem with the motor or an electrical problem. If anyone knows these cars well some help would be awesome. Thanks,

This sounds very much like the well known problem of shorted wires in the harness at the door hinge. Pull back the boot, expose the wire and look for the worn wire insulation.
