In our '97 the same thing happened. Also, the lock usually wouldn't open with the key either! We often had to open the left passenger door & reach forward to open the driver's door. The fix was about $150 worth of labor & parts if I remember correctly; a broken spring & a bent rod inside the door for the locking mechanism.
