Last night I opened the car door (passenger rear) on my car and when I went to shut it, it just bounced off, like it's not grabbing.
It was real cold outside, negative temperatures with high wind chill.
Any ideas as to what I can do?

Reach in there (open door, where door latch is) and unlock the latch that locks the striker. Could be a return spring has broken, the mechanisim is dirty (use some PB Blaster to loosen it the some silicon spray to keep it moving freely), or the door opening mechanism inside the door is sticking.

Also could be the dew wipes are bad and water has frozen it.
