Unhappy Need help! Driver side door locks >>>>

Just adopted a 2001 PT with only 50k miles from my brother. I need help "diagnosing" my driver side car lock issue. When I use RKE, the driver door makes a whinning noise and the door will not lock. IT IS ALWAYS UNLOCKED! The alarm will go off if opened, but I want to be able to lock it. Is this something I can do my self (not car savvy, but pretty smart!!)?? If it has to go to a mechanic, does anyone now what I am looking at for repair?

Thanks for your help!!!

If I were you I'd take it to a glass place. You can probably give the guy $10 and he'll take the door apart to see what's happening. Sounds like something just disconnected or stuck. if you can here it whinning. The dealer will charge you at least an hours labor and around my way that's about $90.
