Question about Cars & Trucks
Check the contact surface point of your door for locking the door , it may be dirty.

The "lock knob" actually activates an electric switch that allows current to flow to a series of solenoids (switches) that power the lock/unlock mechanisms in each door. Since your key fob works, the mechanism is OK. Just the electric switch is bad. And only the switch in the driver's door. Replace it and the locks should work properly.

will your passenger door open with the key and is it just one side that your windows are not working or both. if its just one side it might be your regulator motor in the door thats not working if its both it might be your central locking pump usually in the boot. however if both of them are working fine it could be that your key needs reprogrammed however i think the 1st 2 are more likely to be the problem.

can you lift the lock knob up at all?? If you can lift it and the door stays locked, the linkage inside the door is broken.. if you can't lift it up, then the linkage is most likely seized... you'll need to remove the door panel to actually see it

I have a 2001 C240 with the same issue. I removed the positive battery cable from the battery and kept it off for 30 seconds then replaced it. Everything was reset and the key worked.
