One possibility i have ran up on in the past:

IF *drivers door* lock actuator is not working - the door is remaining locked and can't be unlocked until actuator is replaced or the linkage rod is disconnected..

(Door will still open using 'inside' handle)

Listen for *drivers door* lock actuator when locking / unlocking doors.

After door trim is removed as suggested - this is something you should consider inspecting.
