Probably because there was no water there to freeze up.

you realistically do not have to use boiling water. if you use room temp water it will work just the same as long as its not frozen. you could use warm water too but do not use boiling water because that will just end in trouble such as exploding glass. its a good trick on removing ice from your windshield to use room temp water cuz it works just as well so it should do the same for other applications. just be careful when trying to use the water trick.

i had the same problem with my 92 se and what i did was i took out the stock door hindge with no lock, and by that i mean when i open the door it will not lock and it will try to close again. then i replaced it with an after market one and that seemed to work considering i live in canada and it gets pretty damn cold.
