sound just like my passenger door. what happen with mine was the unlock mechanism did not unlock completely. it stop just short of unlocking. so nothing works. what i did was grab hold of the rod that connect to the lock tumblar and jiggle it up and down a few time and it click unlock and the door open. hope this will help you.
