    From what you are describing it sounds like the door latch on the door got knocked into semi lock position. When my van does this, I have to use my finger & push the latch completely shut on the door then I can use the key or the power switch to unlock it to reset it to the open position. Hope this helps

    hold the door handle up as you do while opening the door YOU SHOULD NOW BE ABLE to easily move the latch with a screwdriver into the un locked position . release door handle . worked on my sonoma .
