They have a history of this problem. Likely something is stuck in the lock mechanism.... dealers can pop this open for you. It happened to my Explorer once. Couldn't get her open, found a piece of towel stuck in mechanism of liftgate lock
LOL. I hope you mean stuck and not truly frozen as I would recommend hot water if you really meant such.
If stuck, this generally happens when the doors are not used often as the seals will stick to the door and body. You can use WD40 around the door and it will work its way in between and allow you to open it. Once open, you can use a dry lubricant to prevent it from happening, wax will work as well.
This is providing it is the seal and not a faulty door lock mechanism. If it is this, then you will need to use a slim jim to open the door so that you can remove the interior panel and replace the part.
The locking mechanism is electromechanical. If the machine is switched on for its cycle & then off, it takes about 2 minutes to open. In normal course it should open it immediately. Your locking mechanism is stuck & needs to be replaced.
OK, this is oven door lock mechanism failuer. check the connections that lead form the door lock mechanism to the control board. if the wiring harness is in good condition and, the connectors are not corroded, simply replace the door lock mechanism(assembly).
The door catch/lock mechanism on the MX5 is liable to do this occasionally - if you keep trying to unlock it, it will open eventually (I manually pop the internal lock whilst opening the outer handle if that makes sense).
Once it's open though, you pretty much need to open up that door and replace the lock mechanism.
your door panel can come off and you can access internal door locking mechanism from inside car first inspect to see all rods are hooked into plastic sleeves then make sure lock is disengaged by pulling rod towards rear of van it should then be able to be opened easily if not your locking mechanism is frozen inside of door between a pillar and door it will have to be pushed to open from inside of door panel once you do that door will open if you cant make lock work manually once this is done replace locking mechanism or rods accordingly.
