More than like if its just on door that wont look and the hoon sounds the door actuator will be faulty and you will need to replace the actuator.
To do this you will need pull the inside door handle off.
remove all door trim covers to access screw and disconnect mirror wiring.
remove all screws around door trim.
very carefully remove door trim once the trim is off you see a plastic inner door liner don't rip gently remove half .
look inside door and you will see the door actuator and lock,carefull lift up locking tabs so you can remove all door rods from actuator.
on the outside of door undo the 3 bolts and actuator will come out.
get the new actuator and fit it the same way the old one come out.
Before refitting the trim grab some silicon and reseal plastic to door to keep water out..

Remote doesn't work to unlock drivers door nor doesn't the key work to unlock what should I do

The lock rod must have fallen off due to a broken retainer. remove the door panel and repair whatever issues you find with the lock rod. If the plastic rod retainer is broken the dealer can supply a new one for about $2.00 US

Hi, I have a Holden Astra TS city 98 model car and the remote on the key will open all the doors except the drivers door, so to lock all doors I have to put the key in the drivers door or use the remote &...

A plastic clip that holds the lock linkage is probably broke or worn. You need to pull of the inner door panel to see whats going on inside. Use the remote and see whats happening. It could be bent rod in door from someone using a slim jim to unlock it when they locked the keys in it at some point. Bend the rod and try the remote again untill it works properly.

Open door manually

can it open from the outside? There is a child safety lock inside the door when open it could have been put on child proof not allowing a young child to open the door from the inside but it will still open from outside. if this is not the problem then your rod has disconnected from the latch mechanism inside the door, you may need a slim jim tool or try to remove door panel from inside, this will be difficult when door is shut but maybe possible depending on the door panel itself, they may have some screws but most just snap in.
