My stuck door?

Hi all
Im new here.
My 98 boxster door locks have never worked. The remote does nothing and locking with the key only locked the driver's door. Locked it recently and now the door will not unlock. How do you open a stuck door? Will pull the panel and see what's broken inside but need to open it first.
Any ideas?
Thanks in advance <3

Never worked? For how long have you owned the car?

Break the passenger side window, crawl in, kick open the driver's door, remove panel, make repair.

You may want professional help to get in the car without tearing it up. Or if you have access to a pneumatic wedge and / graduated prise bars, then slide a padded hook in to pull the opposite door handle. Pulling the inside handle will Probabaly open the door for you. Depending on how it was locked, you may have to pull it twice.
Then once open and inside, it sounds like both the mechanical and the electrical parts of your door lock will need repair or replacement. There is plenty of info on here abour how to do this. BOL.
