Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!
Most likely the lock actuator on the latch has failed and is preventing it from unlocking. If that's the case then the latch will need to be replaced.
Just behind the latch on the trim panel is a small pop out cover. Behind this is a white plastic piece that you can insert a screwdriver into and manually unlock the latch. If you find this will not rotate then the lock actuator has failed and the latch will need to be replaced.
