Drivers door does not respond to unlocking from pass. side/trunk. I am able, however to lock/unlock all OTHER doors from the drivers door. I can feel some resistance in the cylinder when twisting.

Disconnecting battery yielded no results-- drivers door handle is a relatively new replacement (apparently only pre-90 units allowed manual override on the driver's side)

It may be worth a try to disconnect the battery and then try the manual procedure to unlock and open the door. I suspect that the lock servo may be trying to fight you.
