Hello. Thanks for the donation. Much appreciated

You will have to get a long metal hook and pull the inside drivers door handle to open the door ! Your easiest option is AAA they will have done this before !

DESCRIPTION & OPERATION
All doors can be locked or unlocked electrically using the switch on the front door panel or arm rest. All doors can also be locked or unlocked using the door locking knob. Front doors can be locked or unlocked from outside using the vehicle key.

******** Driver's door can be unlocked from inside using the door handle. Passenger door on most models can also be unlocked from inside using the door handle.********

The power door lock inhibit system prevents power door lock operation when the key is in the ignition switch and any door is open, or when the key is in the ignition and the headlights are on. Some models use a remote keyless entry system in addition to power door locks. Refer to REMOTE KEYLESS ENTRY article in the ENGINE PERFORMANCE section.
All models except Acclaim, Laser, Shadow, Spirit, Sundance and Talon are equipped with an automatic door lock function that is actuated through the Body Control Computer. When this system is activated the door locks will operate automatically. If system is disabled, locks will work through the door lock switches only. The body controller controls power door locks when door lock switch is activated. The controller will automatically lock the doors when all doors are closed, vehicle speed exceeds 15 MPH and the throttle position sensor tip-in is greater than 8-12 degrees. The controller will automatically relock the doors if same conditions are met and any of the doors become ajar. The controller does not operate the door unlock function. Unlock switch is wired directly to the door lock switches.
Concorde, Intrepid and Vision models also us a child protection lock on the rear doors. This disables the rear door inside handle when door is closed.

DESCRIPTION & OPERATION
Vehicles equipped with Vehicle Theft Security System (VTSS) have 2 types of protection: entire vehicle theft protection and vehicle entry protection. VTSS will reset after being triggered and system has timed out for 18 minutes. VTSS is equipped with a tamper alert signal; when occupant enters vehicle by unlocking door with key or Remote Keyless Entry (RKE), the horn will sound 3 times, notifying owner VTSS has been triggered (vehicle has been tampered with). VTSS can be triggered from several areas: hood, doors, trunk and ignition switch.
When alarm is triggered, horn will sound for 3 minutes and parking lamps will flash for 15-18 minutes. VTSS has a panel SET lamp. SET lamp flashes for 15 seconds during arming process. VTSS is armed by locking doors using power lock button or RKE. VTSS is disarmed through normal vehicle entry of unlocking door with key or RKE. Whenever battery power is lost or disconnected, VTSS will prevent vehicle from starting. When battery power is restored, system must be disarmed before vehicle will start.

Hey- I seem to have a similar problem with my 95' Chrysler Cirrus, and I see that a lot of people on this forum are having the similar problems (and are going unanswered), so maybe this will help you. On my car, the anti-theft seems to randomly (and silently!) Activate itself, so I can't start the car. (It will start, and then kill after about a second). The way I get it to work is to manually trip the alarm, and then reset it.

This is how-
1) get in the driver's seat.
2) open the driver's side door
3) use the button that locks all the doors (while the driver's door is still open)
4) close the door with you still inside (these steps simulate you leaving the car and arming the alarm)
5) IMPORTANT- WAIT for at least 30 seconds to a minute, so that the alarm will arm itself. If you open the door too soon, the computer may realize you just locked yourself in and will not arm the alarm
6) after the alarm is armed, open the door (this simulates someone breaking into your car) If everything went correctly, the alarm should sound.
7) Get out of the car, and use your key to MANUALLY lock and unlock the door- this should deactivate the alarm
8) Get back in, and try to start the car again

This procedure is annoying (I have to use it about once a week), but it always works on my car (with the exception of once when I messed with the fuse box. But now it works again thank goodness!), And is MUCH better than waiting for an hour (or a couple of days) to see if my car will start again. Best of luck, hope this helps you in some way!

BTW- I had also spent enough $$$ for the Chrysler dealership and friends to tell me they had no idea what was wrong (kind of annoying), and was about to spend more "fixing" things when this was figured out serendipitously (thank you, thank you, God :)). My current question involves how to conduct this procedure without waking the neighbors at all hours- hopefully some kind soul will help figure that one out too- you can find that post here
