it opens from the inside right? take the door panel off and see if one of the rods for the door handle has come out

It opens from the outside when the weather is above 25° F. When I open it from the inside, in cold weather, it feels very stiff but doesn't stick.

Still take the door panel off and put some lube on the joints in the door like the latch

he has the right idea. Get some lube on that door lock its most likely dry or has moisture in it so its freezing in the lower temps. take it off clean it out lube it up should be as good as new.

Thanks for the input. I will look into it.
