    first try disconnecting the battery for about 20mins, and give the central locking a kick up ther butt - sometimes works and is worth a try.

    If that don't work then you'll have to get the door card off, and get the lock from the back.

    If you've locked the car on the remote and deadlocked it, the deadlocks can stick sometimes, try unlocking and locking the car 10-15 times on the remote usind the deadlock too. This can work, if not removing the door card with the door shut is a bit of a pig, you can cause damage if not carefull as you can't get down by the seat.
    Also try working the door pin up and down by hand, possibly remove the plastic top and try a pair of pliers to pull up and down.
