you can buy some "grafite" powder at lowes that is made for stiff locks, it will grease it up. if that doesnt do it the your problem may be in the plunger. might it be out of line? if so straighten it and make sure the it aligns with the strike plate on the door jamb. one of those are sure to fix it.

Make sure that the tang from the lock side actually engage the mechanism in other side of the door. If the tang is too short or not engaged the lock will not work. Also check that the two screws connecting the lock to the other side is actually tight.

SOURCE: deadbolt stuck on lock position
you will need to dissasemble the deadbolt there is a plastic piece that wears out over time and once this wears out it wont work right probably best just to replace the deadbolt (sorry)

if you remove the screw from the deadbolt and remove the keyed parts you can see the plunger assembly. you can use a flat head screw driver and turn the plunger in. it will unlock the door and you will be able to replace the deadbolt

SOURCE: Deadbolt wont unlock
Remove the deadbolt cover by removing the 2 screws. This will get you inside the deadbolt. Try using a screwdriver to pull it back. You may in the end have to break the unit in order to get it out and replace it. I have the same thing happen with a deadbolt. I ended up having to destroy the unit to get it out. You are going to replace it anyway so do whatever it takes to get it to unlock so you can then remove it from the door and install a new one. You do not want a deadbolt that will not unlock.
