    I had a similar thing once, strange it was after the wife used the car, but the door wouldn't open either on the remote or from the switch and the door open light was lit on the dash, but the door was closed. In the end, i pushed really hard on the door, forcing it as far onto the latch as possible and hey presto, the light on the dash went out and it operated fine. For some reason, it hadn't latched properly, even though the door was closed. I put it down to dirt in the floor latch as they are exposed to everything where they are on the car.
