Sounds like the door latch has triped while the door was open.the door is held closed when the latch grabs around the u shaped bracket you can see when door is open.make sure door is unlocked then with a screwdriver or even a pen stick it in the door latch and slide the latch over to reset it.

Its possible taht you have any linkage problem there; first check the FUSE, use this Ford-Explorer Owners Manual to know the specific location.
