hi jim, try lifting up on the driver's outside door handle slowly while turning the key in the unlock position. The lock cylinder design has a cam on it that usually will catch while lifting the handle. if you have no luck on the driver's side, try the same thing on the passenger's side. be patient, it make take a few tries before the door unlocks.

The driver's door lock is a mechanical linkage, not electric. Turn the top of the key toward the front of the vehicle. If it will not open, there is a mechanical problem in the door; your local AAA tow company can break in with a "slim jim".
