From you description I suspect water is getting into the door latch. Then it freezes and stops the latch from moving properly. The solution is to keep the water out and the best way to do that is to make sure all the rubber seals around the window and door are working properly and in good condition.

None of the doors open


The latches are "frozen" because of metal contracting in the latch or latch lubricant physically becoming more viscous or freezing and preventing movement of the latch. You may need to apply a sub-freezing lubricant to prevent them from freezing up in low temperatures. Best put the car into a garage and let the general higher temperature unfreeze the latches.

I have a 2001 Pontiac Sunfire and every time it rains or snow in the cold weather all the doors freeze shut what can i use to stop this


Get a can of silicone spray from your local parts store. Spray a rag liberally and wipe down all of the rubber gaskets that seal the doors to the car. The silicone spray will keep ice from freezing the seals to the door.

We live in a cold state (MN) and this year though it hasn't been incredibly cold our 2000 Kia Sephia constantly freezes shut. The power door lock on the driver side won't move from the inside or the...


part of the problem with being in such a cold place is even tho its so cold there is still moisture in the air. if you door wont close or open, you need to check the latch out and make sure its not just bent. as for not being able to unlock you door. the latching system is connected to the lock and handle. if the latch wont move don't use wd-40 that will make it worse. you need to pull open the door panel and get it greased with a grease gun. wd-40 will not keep the parts moving in that kind of cold. if latch wont reset
when you get it open, it wont close. just grease it up. oh it would help if you get water guard for your windows. protect you parts from freezing. take care.

I would say the mechanism is frozen, there is a chance that if you tried to open them the operating rods could snap the plastic and cease operating. Have you tried when warmed up? if still broken what area are you?
