MY FRONT DRIVER DOOR WON'T UNLOCK. I CAN ONLY OPEN IT FROM THE INSIDE. THE LOCK STAYS LOCK AND THE KEY WON'T UNLOCK IT EITHER. SEEMS LIKE ITS JAMMED.

2005 Kia Sportage • 96,010 miles

The lock stay on the lock position and won't unlock. The inside handle will open the door but it is still in the lock position. I can't push the lock to the unlock position. Seems jammed.

Remove the inner door panel and check the linkage to the lock. Chances are something is disconnected or damaged.
