I had the same problem. While inside the car with your key in the ignition on battery mode (1 click), roll down the window slightly then try it. If that doesn't work, go in through the passenger side and open it from inside the car. Then spray WD-40 on the the circular door latch in the door jam and use a plyers to gently pull it in and out until its coated. Then open and close the door a couple times from the inside then try opening it from the outside. If that doesn't work, time for a new latch...ugh.
