you need to take the door panel off, there is a rod in there that connects to the lock cylinder it frequently pops off, there is a little plastic clip that should hold it on to the cylinder it may be broken!!

Sounds like the link rod to the latch are jammed in the locked position by something inside the door or it came off. Any way, you have to remove the door panel to get access to it.

I have a 98 Dodge Ram 1500 4wd with an alarm and have the same problem. No big deal for me though as long as I have the remote. You can shut off the alarm by pushing the redlight that blinks on your console. That is usually what I do.
