Hi my name is Robert...

Sounds like the linkage inside the door could be at fault. When you shut the door you should hear two clicks as the door latches, if the door will not open right now try applying pressure to the door and listen/feel for that second click, sometimes if it is in between the door might not open until you get that second click. Once the door is open you will have to pull the door panel and inspect the linkage. I was looking for specific info on this and came across a forum that has pictures and instructions on how to adjust the door, has some good information. Click HERE to view that, it may help. The print appears to be right around your time frame. Hope this helps some, IF you have more questions or concerns please feel free to contact me... Robert
