What has happened is the drivers door lock solenoid. (this is the electrial part of the door lock) has failed/ siezed-up, Then inturn it will not allow you to lock or unlock drivers door with inner lock or with key, You will have to replace the door lock solenoid, and it also sounds like when the solenoid failed, it caused the door lock fuse to burn open, you will need to also replace the fuse. Thanks Please let me know if I can be of any other assistance to you with this issue!
When the door lock solenoid siezes-up it will not allow the key lock cylinder to turn with key. Disconnect the door lock solenoid rod from the door latch then key will work, A shorted out solenoid can also cancel all electric door lock solenoids from working it works from the body computer
