Door lock issues

Good afternoon all!

I have a 2005 Sport Trac Adrenalin that I am having some issues with the automatic door locks. The key fob will unlock all the doors except for the driver's side door. You can hear it "click" but doesn't open. Same goes for the key pad keyless entry, just a "click" but doesn't open the door. I have checked the fuses both under the hood and under the dash, but they all seem to be fine. I have tried disconnecting the battery in the hopes it might "reset" the locks as well. I recently had to replace the alternator, but not sure if that is related to the lock issue. Any help or pointers would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you from Canada!

Very common. Most likely a broken spring inside the latch or a faulty actuator. Remove the interior door panel to diagnose.
