Why is my van door locked shut?

The passenger door on my 2006 Ford Transit has locked and will not open. What's the issue?

Reads like a faulty lock servo. It may be possible to fix it by driving out any internal moisture with WD40. But given the age of the van, I imagine the servo is worn out and needs to be replaced.
