    if you remove the lock button can you pull the lock up and down manually.

    starting to sound like the actuator as hinted at above.

    Then, to answer your thread question, the lock mechanism is faulty.

    No can’t move it up and down it’s like it’s jammed, last week my son got it to move and opened door but then it wouldn’t shut. So he had to shut it and now back to square one can’t open again

    You could get a wrecker door and put it in the back of the car with the right tools so that when you get it open randomly like you did last time then you can quickly change it over then have time to work on your door before refitting it
