Your door actuators are out and will need to be replaced. This is a common problem . My 03 has this issue too. Actuators are about $70 each. I would recommend finding a good stereo shop to install them instead of the dealer since stereo shops deal with removal of door panels and actuator installs day in and out.

I suspect you lock linkage rod came off inside the door.Remove the door panel and lock / unlock manual knob as you watch the rod to see if it is moving. Typically a door panel will have a few screws and several push in fasteners holding the panel on the door. Look the panel over closely and remove all screws, including the handle bucket and top left side screws - some vehicles have screws on the edge of the door. Use a large flat blade screwdriver to slide along between the door and panel, twisting at the points where the panel is tight to the door. These push ins will be tight and your local auto parts store has a special tool for removing the push ins - this would be the safest route to go to prevent damaging the push ins. Remove panel and look at the locking mechanism - I think this is where you have the disconnect issue. There is a plastic retainer that the rod goes into. It pushes into the lock mechanism and swings over the arm. Sometimes these retainers break and the arm falls off, so you may need to replace them. Your local parts store mat have these in stock or be able to order them for you - otherwise you'll need to go to either the dealer or a body shop to get the parts. You can get an exact diagram of the interior of your door to show you the specifics of the mechanism at
They charge a fee for the look up and you can print out what you see there for future reference.
I hope this helps and please rate my solution - Happy Thanksgiving!!!
