Is the door latch frozen not letting the gear/teeth that hold on to the door striker or are those teeth already turned in. If they are take a screwdriver and insert it between the teeth as if it were the striker and pull up on the door handle while pulling the screwdriver toward the car.
I also learned that there was a rubber protective coat on the latch mechanism that was binding on the door. Ended up peeling as much of that off as I could.
Now that I figured out my problem I learned that the only real solution for now is to leave one of the doors unlocked till the temp stays above 20 degrees. My window trim rubber piece needs replacing because theres a 1/16 or 1/8 inch gap that rain or melted snow funnels down into.
