When it's extremely cold the front driver and passenger side

Customer Question

When it's extremely cold the front driver and passenger side doors won't open. When I finally do get them open they won't close shut. Right now I have a passenger side door that won't open and a driver side door that won't close back shut. Back door don't ever seem to have a problem.

Hey there, thanks for the question.When you say the doors won't open are you saying it won't unlock? Or they won't open after being unlocked.

They won't open after being unlocked

If your certain the door is UNLOCKED but it still won't open. The for some reason the latch is seizing when cold.

Try some plaster or spray lithium in the actual latch. How cold is it?

About 19 degrees
