    Sometimes the latch gets out of sequence, make sure the door side latch is open ready to latch onto the striker on the door pillar. Compare it with the passenger side, when the passenger side is open look at the position of the latch. If the latch is out of sequence have someone pull on the latch with a tool while pulling up on the handle.
