Use a towel and a tyre iron to prise away the top of the door while someone fishes out the keys with a wire coathangar,after use a block of wood in the middle of the door(with the window down)to press the top of the door back into if you have the registration with you in case a police officer askes what you are doing.....

you need to take the interor panel off and take a look the latch. the connecting rod from the outside handle to the the lock most likely is the problem.

SOURCE: 2001 VW Jetta 1.8L - Front RH Door Lock won't lock

I have a similar issue on a 2001 Jetta sedan. jandkat seems to be talking about the old system that VW used (pre-1998). To my knowledge there is no vacuum-based locks in the 2001 models. I've had the door completely apart and there are defiantly not any vacuum hoses. The only 100% for sure fix I have found is to replace the door latch mechanism. There are some other options but I'm not sure they would completely fix the issues you are having. Now for the bad news: you can only get this door latch mechanism from VW dealers. I have yet to find a place online or elsewhere that carries them. They are around $185 for the latching mechanism and if you don't want to install it, be prepared to pay another $200 or so in labor. If you do want to do it yourself, here is a great site that has step-by-step how to take a VW door apart:

Hope this helps

Passenger side door on 1998 olds 88 locked and cant get it open even with key

Doubtful. I'd recommend a good locksmith to come pop the lock for you fron the window channel. If you know what to look for, just roll down the window, find the lock linkage, and pop the lock yourself.

04 tahoe liftgate will not lock

Make sure key is in the center locking position when removed. May have bad lock mechanism or lock mechanism was jammed shutt befor closing. You can take a screwdriver and pry out the lock latch while turning mechanism with key. Mechanism should pop open and lock should work. Do you have power locks? have someone work the switch as you attempt to free up mechanism with screwdriver.

The front passenger door lock does not pop up, or unlock / lock with either the key fob, or using the key in the drivers door, or the lock / unlock button inside the car

You didn't mention the year of your vehicle, but often when the electric door lock solenoid fails, it becomes siezed in place, where it is un-moveable. This causes the condition that you are experiencing. One way to check to see if this is the cause, is to remove the drivers inside door panel and disconnect the door lock solenoid, and verify the manual key lock works ok.

Key stuck in my back door lock of my car

First you need to take the inside panel off of your door. Then there is a clip holding your key lock in place which you need to remove and pop out the lock. Take the outer case apart and slowly remove the broken key without damaging the tumblers.
