    I'd imagine the actuator could have frozen up...
    What I would do is remove the inner door panel and see what you can see.
    getting the panel off with the door closed is gonna be a pain to be sure though.
    maybe if you work a small wedge into the door frame where it meets the glass (with the glass down even) and peer down inside to see if maybe you can manually unlock it from that vantage point?
    Without laying my eyes on it , I don't see how I can help any further.
    Maybe someone else will pipe in and add to this thread?

I have a 2000 Ford Focus. I put the key in the ignition, but it won't unlock. What can I do to unlock the ignition? Thanks!

Are you using a key with a "Chip"? or a copied one?
You can get the engine to "ON" position with a crafted key that'll open the doors, but without the proper coded key the Ignition won't go off.

You will probably need assistance with the repair, but first try this. Spray some spray lubricant like WD40 into the keyhole on the exterior using the tiny straw provided with the lubricant can. Try locking and unlocking manually using your key in the outside key lock and try activating the handle to open the door while you have someone pull in and out on the door. Once it's open, you may need to remove the interior panel to see if something is rusted, worn or bent.

The drivers door opens with key remote but other doors will not open without unlocking the passenger door from inside. Just bought the car today and there is not a operators manual - can you help? Pete

How To Do It!
Time Required:
10 seconds Tools Needed:
  • One of your keyless entry remotes Procedure:
    By default, the Focus Keyless Entry system requires you to press the unlock button twice to unlock all the doors, as the first press only unlocks the driver's side door. You can change this. 1) Stand within remote range of your car 2) Hold down both the lock and unlock buttons SIMULTANEOUSLY for about 5 seconds. The horn will chirp and lights will flash to signal that you have altered the setting. You can repeat this procedure to switch between "one press" mode and "two press" mode.
