Default Door Locks not working

I have a 2005 Pt Cruiser convertible. Door locks suddenly stopped working. the remote will unlock the trunk but not the door. It takes a hard turn with the key in the door to open (I also have to hold the key in that position to open door). Once inside, I cannot manually pull up the lock knob. When I try the power lock button, all I get is a click behind the dash.

Not saying this is your problem, but you have a module in the dash the works the locks through your remote. it could be bad.

The "hard turn" with the key in the door would indicate that actuator has failed, and is probable seized.
Some times you can go in a loosen it up, and grease it and be good to go.
But honestly, it sounds like you'll be replacing that actuator.
If you know someone with a scan tool, they can actually tell you whats wrong with the lock, and maybe if there is more than one that is failing.

Hope that helps
