Sounds as though your l/f door latch is seized. Does the interior door release handle work?

Yes the interior door handle works. its just the lock on the driver door doesn't.
even when i try to turn the key to the left( to lock) it doesn't turn. but turns to the right.

Pop the interior door panel off and spray the assembly with penetrating lube. Start working the lock and key in the door and see if it frees up.

PS. don't break the key off in the door...lol
