I' ve had this happen to my 2001 Taurus SEL once, in the cold weather. One of my co-workers has a 2000 Taurus SES and has had the same thing happen too. Just pull on the outside door handle a few times before closing it.

The locking mech. is starting to get dirty and the grease is old and stiff--only made worse by the cold weather--really should pull locking mech., clean and re-lube with white grease--problem will get worse not better till its fixed--bob
