start by spraying the lock cylinders (key hole) with lubricant. while you're at it, spray the latches on the door.

If that doesn't free them up, autozone sells lock cylinders. I did mine after they finally quit working. Only downside is carrying 2 different keys for your vehicle.

You can always take the door panels off and grease the lock slides I did that a few weeks ago when mine were messing up and cause I got tired of opening the passenger side and reaching over to unlock the driver door lol
