Slam the door until it gets unjammed. It happens to my 1991 on occasion, I just slam it once or twice to unjam it.

I'm being honest though. Sometimes my passenger side door freezes as well. Takes a good slam to make it go away.
From the school of tap it gently with the heel of your shoe...
Could always shoot some lubricant in there too...

My Subaru Legacy 1990 LS FWD Sport 2.2 Standard S/W left hand front (passenger) door stays locked all the time (it used to work two weeks ago). Electronic unlock system seems to work but doesn't stay in unlocked position. When I put the key in the lock it could not turn. The only key that works is the one on the driver’s door. Any advice or suggestion how to repair the front passenger door are appreciated.
you need a new door lock motor. These are motors ( i think) and not solenoids (takes less power to operate) and one of the internal switches are bad in the motor housing

I did some checking in my service manual and it calls it a lock actuator (for minds that need to know).

I am perfectly done by following Skip's article which is unbelievable accurate. I have no words to thank enough this person.
here is the reference:
> Here is your fix as Sea says it is rather common
> you do not have to buy a new lock assm.
