Question about Saturn Cars & Trucks
This usually works.
Take a rubber hammer,roll down the window,then manually unlock the door using the inside unlock button (not the power lock button) while you give the door a good whack about half way down where the door lock assembly holds the door closed to the car body.It may take a few whacks and a few lock/unlock cycles but this usually allows the lock to release and you can open the door.NOW.....take off the door panel and lube that lock assembly and don't close the door unless the lock can be locked and UNLOCKED.

It sounds like the the linkage, actuator (power locks), or the mechanism has broken or become dislodged.
On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Pull back the weather seal and you should see everything and hopefully see the cause.
