since it is the drivers front door it could be the outside door handle , the rod that goes from the handle to the lock asbly or the lock asbly its self take the door trim panel off and then loos inside the door and latch the door with the door open. open the door with the outside door handle and watch the rod and the lever that the rod is pushing down the lever might not be pushing the lever down far enough to release the lock. If the lock does not open try pushing down on the lever and see if the lock releases if it does ck the outside door handle for cracks along the hinges of the handle I have found that most of the time that it is the outside door handle cracked and the rod is not moving the lever far enough to release the lock.
hello. it sounds like your door lock may be corroded. Go to any auto parts store and get an aerosol can of a product called WD40. Squirt three quick squirts into the problem lock and wait 30 minutes for the chemical to work. Then try the key.
There is no way of telling what needs to be replaced until the door panel is off. It could be as simple as the linkage from the handle to the latch mechanism coming off. There could be problems with the latch or handle itself. Can you gain access into the car from the trunk?
There is a small clip that holds the outside door handle arm (inside the door) to the latching assembly, so the door panel has to be removed to reattach it. Sometimes the little clip is still attached to the handle arm, sometimes they are in the bottom of the door & sometimes you can't find them at all... Rick
i think the clip broke off of the door handle inside of the door panel you have to take the panel off and look it is eather the clip[ broke or the handel is broke inside ,i would take it to a shop unless you have the tools and time to play with it just trying to help
