Hi there ,good afternoon to you
Ok the fault lies internal of the drivers door latch
The fact you cannot unlock the latch manually confirms this
This is quite a common occurance on the earlier focus /c-max
And can only be resolved by replacing the drivers door latch
This is quite a tricky job if you haven't had any previous dealings with this setup as the window glass /door handles need to be removed and the full interior door panel and latch and window regulator comes off as one unit
If you need anymore help or advice on this issue please let me know

Kind regards ***** ***** and have a nice day
