This is most likely a problem with your Passlock anti-theft system which is known issue with these cars. Passlock is a "passive" anti-theft system, which means that it will disable your ability to start the car if it thinks there is a problem. The three components that can cause this are: 1) Ignition Switch, 2) Ignition Cylinder, 3) Body Control Module (computer). The dealer is the only one who can solve this problem (unless you can bypass it, but it is not that easy). Estimated repair from most dealers is $800 and up.

after you replace the fuse try closing the door and put the key in and turn it back and forth locking and unlocking it and see what happens when you use the power lock

Probably the door actuator - a part inside the door that activates the lock, particularly if neither the interior lock switch or the remote do not lock the door. Once the doors lock the horn will beep again - the lack of beep indicates the vehicle is not secure.

SOURCE: door locks wont work
check if the batteries in key remote are good.
nedd to reset your key by putting in the ignition just turn the dash lights on ...dont start the car and once the ignition lights shows on the dash board just press unlock and lock once ot twice until it locks and unlocks while u in the car. try that it had worked for me before should do for urs.
