Welcome. Smile  I have only ever removed the tailgate locks and yours sounds like the barn door version.  There are usually 3 components, the latch at the bottom which physically locks the door, a large plastic central controller above which tells the latch what to do and the locking barrel at the top which allows the key to work the system manually.  Apologies if I'm tell my grandmother how to suck eggs but it's important to know what the problem is.
You should be able to find some pics online to help.
