Are you sure the pull wire connected to the inner handle is not snapped? Should be able to tell if you pull the door panel off, disconnect the hook from the handle and pull on it manually.

okay. i was too lazy to type this out b4.

so this happened to me before. i did the keyless unlock mechanism and all doors would unlock except for my passenger front door. i was pissed. couldn't pull it out or anything. so i pulled the handle and it unlocked manually but it felt very stiff. i tried to open it form inside. wouldn't open. i go around the car and it opens form the outside. so im kinda confused. BUT what i did was get some needle nose pliers and pried the little lock "completely" out when i manually unlocked it. once i did this the door opens inside and outside fine. so the problem was it wouldn't unlock all the way and felt stiff as hell. using the unlock mechanism wouldn't even make the lock budge. so...........i lubed that **** up....manually unlocked it lubed it, pushed it down, lubed it, unlocked, did this over and over for about 5 cycles. pretty soon when i pushed the lock down it was easier. you have to get the lube going by doing this. so now my car unlocks fine. the lock is quite stiff still but the lube does the job.
