The next step is to make sure moisture is out of lock tumblers with some wd40 first , then follow up with silicone spray. Make sure rubber door seals are dry them spray then down with silicone and wipe with a clothe , do all seals in car and also spray the side window wipers, this prevents windows from freezing shut and makes power windows function improves= less friction.
Last resort , dump a big hot coffee on the lock and it will get you in.

All good. Thanks. Living in sunny SoCal, I had no idea about all this stuff. Now I know, and soon, so will my daughter.
