    Both Front doors are open, but unable to unlock the doors so that they can close.

    If I understand correctly then the doors are opened
    And the locks or latch is closed
    Now, can not close doors

    Should be able to undo the lock or latch by unlocking the lock
    And applying pressure on the release mechanism (door handle)
    And using a screwdriver (or pry bar) to move the latch to open position

    Hope this helps

    The jiggling the outside door handle and using a key to move the latch worked! Thank you!
