Removed the passenger door panel OK. Lock rod does not move when either the key is used on the outside of the door, or when the door's lock switch is pressed, or when lock button on keyfob is pressed. No actuator noise is heard except when unlock is pressed, but rod still doesn't move. All rods are connected to the latch mechanism, all wire connectors are attached, all wires look good. No issues on the driver's door - everything functions OK.
It's usually caused by the hole in the door handle where the lock core goes into is worn allowing the lock cycl. to move inward when you put the key in and the key bottoms out on the door handle housing, replace exterior door handle will take care of the problem
The Actuator is not functioning anymore, check to see if there is a fuse for it first. If that is ok then remove the actuator and test it outside using some wire and your car battery to see if actually moves or doesent this will tell you if you need a replacement.

It is not hard just time consuming first u have to remove in side panel. Then the barrier reach inside door and disconnect lock rod. After that done disconnect second rod then remove the two bolts holding handle to door. Handle is removed change key lock over if needed. Installed is reverse or removed
1) Key turns but dose not unlock door. This means that the rod that goes to the back of the lock has came off. This also means that is the reason door is not unlocking with the remote as it pops the lock rod inside the door which pushes the lock open. 2) Key does not turn lock at all but works passengers side door. This means that the locks has been changed in the door, but that doesn't sound like the problem as you say the remote doesn't open the drivers side door so more than likely the rod has came off the back of the lock
Ok this one is a tough one. If your handle on the outside does not work for some time, then the rod that attaches to the handle has most likely come loose. Your options are limited. I usually do not recommend the use of a slim jim. However in this case, a slim jim is an option. Inside your read door panel are three main rods. One rod moves the inside handle. The other rod moves the outside handle. The third rod is attached to the lock knob. Using the slim jim slide it into the door. Hook it onto one of the rods and pull up slightly. Try to see what is moving when you move the rod. If it is the inside handle or lock knob is moving, then find another rod that moves nothing. That will be the rod that should be attached to your outside handle. Lift up on that rod and it should open your door. After you open the door, go ahead and take the time to fix your door, by removing the door panel and re-attaching the rod to the handle.
This procedure work for door lock, but necessary you need take off the trim panel, then could helpfull...
Fig. Exploded view of the front door trim panel - 2005-06 and 2007 Classic models (click image for zoom)
Disconnect the battery ground cable.
Disable the Supplemental Restraint System.
Remove the door trim panel. Refer to the illustration for the
mounting screw and lock tab locations. After detaching the hardware,
carefully pull it away, then lift it off the door just far enough to
detach the electrical connections from it.
Carefully detach the water shield from the door; this will be reused upon installation.
Disconnect the inside door lock rod from the handle retainer clip.
Detach the door lock rod from the retainer clip.
Remove the rubber plug to access the outside handle rod. Disengage it from the clip and disconnect the lock cylinder rod.
Detach the electrical connector and remove the lock from the vehicle.
Installation is the reverse of removal. When installing the lock, tighten the screws to 89 inch lbs. (10 Nm).
You may have 2 issues going on at the same time.
1. The child lock safety latch is up, preventing you from opening the door from the inside.
2. The inside clip to the rod that opens the door from the out side could of come off from closing the door to hard. Or the lock itself is getting stuck.
Roll the window all the way down, and look through the window crack with a flash light and see if any of the rods are just hanging and not connected.
If there are you can try using a slim jim with the cut out part facing up and try to catch the latch and pull up this could open the door.
Or you can try to take off the door panel from the inside, however this is very difficult and should be done by a professional becuse you don't want to break any thing or cause more dammage.
Once the door panel is off you can then pull the inside door release rod and open the door.
One more thing you can try: Pull the inside handle and the out side handle at the same time while having some on pull or push on the door, it just might be stuck and need a little force to open!
no matter what you do door panel has to come of if it is a two piece top and bottom better for you once it is off make sure window is up all the way disconnect handle rod most are held on with a lock clip from one of access holes in top of door then remove two mounting nuts on the handle bolts that come from the outside to the in the vhandle should come right out then have someone on the outside install handle threw door will you reinstall the two nuts on the threaded bolts on the inside reinstall rod to handle then door panel your done
