The outside handle won't open the door. Can't unlock door with key either. I have to open the door from the inside handle. The lock is jammed and stay lock. What do you think mite be wrong?

Even if I was there to see this concern I would still have to remove the inner door panel to see whats happening inside the door. Could be the latch or bent or loose not connected rod. Your going to have to remove the inner door panel to have a look.
