    Have you tried some lube(wd40 or similar) in the locks?

    Also how cold is it where you are? not frozen currently is it up there and it has frozen the mechanism?

    You will need to remove the door card and check out the problem, may just be a rod come off or dodgy mechanism.

    You need to pull the inside handle twice. The door knob disconnects from the lock when the car is double locked.
