My driver side door wont unlock from the exterior but will unlock from the inside. Getting really tired of unlocking door from passenger side and crawling over. Any help?

I'm betting the rod came off the door lock cylinder's arm. You'll need to pull the door panel and with your window all the way up-ish, take a look. If you shake the door back and forth, do you hear any noise like a thin metal rod bouncing around?

Does the key turn in the lock at all and just not unlock the door, or does the key no longer turn the lock? If it's not turning the lock, then I'd suspect either a worn key or that lock cylinder took a crap.
