SOURCE: passenger door lock jammed
Your door latch assembly may be compromised. It could be rusted, the electric solenoid (if it has one) may be seized. Or the rods from the key are bent. Are you using th key in this door regularly? If not, the tumblers in the lock may be seized. Spray some WD-40 in the lock where the key goes, and jam the key in & out repeatedly, and retry. Remove the door panel & spray the interior of the latch, also. Hope this works for you; or, you are going to need new latches.

Sounds like the power door lock actuator is bad in the drivers door. Its basically a solenoid. Its Toyota specific and probably not made aftermarket. It comes as an assembly with the latch mechanism. Its not a simple install for a novice but $350 sounds a bit steep. Call around and if you can find a better price.
