    You can gently push on the door to break the seal, or you could also heat with a hair blower , or, and the best of all, start your car remotely and let the heat melt that ice away.

    If you have remote start just start the car. Try using a hair dryer around the door. You really only need to get one door open then you can start the car and let the others warm up
