Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

Is it the drivers side door is not locking or unlocking with the remote or power locks or will it not unlock at all even with the key?

Let me know so we can continue,thanks Pete.

O.k.,this indicates the drivers door latch is at fault here.I have seen several of these door latches fail in the past before causing this issue here needing replaced.Unfortunately when the door is stuck closed like this here this can require a lock smith to try and use their tools to open the door or removing the door paneling with the door closed ( this may damage the paneling to where it would need replaced or repaired after) to then access and replace this latch.The latch fails mechanically internally causing this fault.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service,your 5 star rating is appreciated.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
