The lock mechanism on the latch may be sticky. Insert the key in the lock %26 engage it a few times; at the same time try the door latch. Once you get it open then remove the door panel %26 further investigate.

The lever that locks and unlocks the door goes to the door lock mechanism. Follow the rod from the inner handle lock button or lever to the door lock assembly. You will have to get the interior panel off somehow. Find the part of the lock mechanism it moves, it will be the problem. It must engage the part of the assembly that allows the inner handle to pull the lock release lever. There may be a rod loose or a plastic retainer clip broken.
