Question Frozen door locks?

My door locks don't work anymore. When I put the key in I can't turn it to unlock. Has anyone had this happen before and could I fix it myself pretty easily? I have a 93.

No I don't have power locks. It happened before I got the truck...so who knows how long ago.

Try shooting some WD40 inside the lock, If that doesnt work, light the bitch on fire! It also could be the bar for the lock that flips it up and down fell off inside the door

if you can open it from the inside then something else is going on here. Try the WD40 and report back if it works or doesnt.

That would suck. It's on both doors. If it is broken how much you think it will cost to get fixed?
