SOURCE: driver sode door lock
The locking solenoid may need to be replaced, or the rod adjusted.
You will need to remove the door panel to watch the movement.
If the solenoid is not fully extending, it will require replacement.
It will look similar to this...
In the picture below, it will be #4
Check the locking mechanism is lubricated properly. Try spraying some penetrating oil in the mechanism (just above 3 in the diagram) Wait 10 minutes, and re-try.
If the actuator does not fully extend, it will need to be replaced.

Well you could take the door panel off and fool around with the lock till you get it to work. If you want to get lazy take a crow bar and open the door with that, but it will more than likely break the door. Sounds the lock seized up and will take you working to get it loose,

no the latch could be hanging up, the keyless entry pad has no mechanical connection, lube the latch area generously, ....even pull the highest bolt holding the latch in place and with the red nozzel spry into the bolt hole .....hold handle in up position and close door like ten times or more to work the lube into moving components....... make sure when this happens that the lock is fully rising to allow to open,
may need and actuator also if thats not occuring.

The inside door handles are plastic so the chances are you need a new one. To get to it you have to take the door panel off and than you will see
