If the door won't open from either side, there is a high possibility that there is a connection problem between the lock cylinder and the inside locks. Remove the door panel and see which moving piece is not connecting, it might just be a loose wire. Also lubricate the door and apply WD40 regularly.

    How would you adjust that loose wire? On my rear door the bottom latch is loose and do not see an easy way to adjust the cable...
