try spraying the inside of the lock with wd40 through the opening you'd normally stick the key in. if that doesn't work, you're going to have to take out the cylinder and sand it. keys wear down after a while and they don't fit the lock anymore.

You can override the power door lock by turning the key in the cylinder to 11:00 and push the release in with the key. There is probably a broken wire in the power door lock harness.
