A bad lock actuator. It's a smallish plastic gear box with an electric motor in it that moves the locking rod when you hit the remote door lock/unlock button in your armrest or the key fob. It's inside the door near the lock mechanism, you'll have to open the door panel to replace it, they cost about $30-40 at a parts store, but the repair cost is mostly for the labor. Youtube generally has plenty of videos on replacing these for various make/models, search there and make it a DIY project.

Thank you so much for your help! I'm not sure how good I'll be at fixing it but, I certainly appreciate your answer .
