Your GM5 module is acting up... Two relays and a few hours of leisure time. There isn't a release for the door unless it is unlocked- in which the current supplied to the locking actuator (inside your door) doesn't have-- so it will not release. I have a vert, and went through this recently. Once you have it unlocked, do not lock it again or you get the same outcome.... (search GM5 module)

fyi, our cars "lock" down the door handles in 15-20 minutes of inactivity... I had to climb over the rear windows into my backseat....and then had to climb over my door to get out.. PIA!!!
