Get some lock deicer to fix it temporarily.... if you can get it in a heated garage or wait until a semi mild day and spray it with some spray grease to displace the moisture.......the spray grease should be something you do about 4 times a year to keep them free and working
hope this helps....good luck!

Wont start when cold outside turns over

First thing I would do is first day it warms up and starts put some fuel conditioner in the fuel tank you might have water in the fuel. That will if gets in the fuel filter will freeze and prevent fuel from getting to the engine. As to why it will start unless its cold out side. That would be the first thing I would try. Good luck.

My left passenger door will not open from inside or outside on my 07 legacy

It is possible the rear child locks are set on which would prevent opening the door from the inside. It is also possible the outside latch handle or internal mechanism is frozen.
To un-freeze it, drive the car long enough to get the interior all warmed up with the heater on high the whole time. Then try opening it again from the outside. The best thing is to have the window down and blow into the window slit with a hair dryer. If that isn't possible or convenient you could also try a pot of warm water on the outside of the door, but be aware that this water will get cold and freeze all over again if you don't get it dry before it re-freezes. But at least this exercise will confirm the source of the problem if it is freezing.
Of course, you could take the car to the dealer.

The key won't go in the ignition switch of my 2005 rendezvous, it looks like there is something inside that won't let it go any further than just a 1/4 in.

Chances are your tumblers have fallen down. Or the outside collar of where you insert the key is misaligned to the keyhole.
