Driver door latch worked fine last time door closed. After opening the door this morning, it will not latch. Latch is in the open position and moves freely with finger pressure. Feels almost like door is bumping against something when I close it, but area is clear. Door lock indicator post only seems to move about 1/8" when door lock button on fob or inside door is pressed.

Make sure latch is in open position as it may have moved, then try lubing it up and lube inside rods as well which will require removing door panel.
