Driverside door lock

My driverside door will not lock with the key, the key will not turn to the right, it will turn to the left. What is the problem? I need to lock my car, any help would be great.

I went through that with my SD for two years. I'd open the rear DS door and lock the front door.

The leaves 'tumblers.' in the lock are worn or just frozen. I changed the ignition and both front handles to get a one key solution.

spray some brake cleaner in the lock, then spray some PB blaster in there, then flush that out with more brake spray, then blast some air in there to dry it out.
odds are good graphite, and other junk is in there and it's jammed in the one direction.
