Default Doors wont lock/unlock by fob or inside button. But fob honks?

I have an 02 Dodge quad half ton. I have never had this issure before but went to get in and pushed unlock on fob and lights blinked like normal but the doors didnt unlock. none of them. I pushed the lock button and it honked but i still couldnt get in. Had to use the key to unlock. I tried the door panel unlock too and it would work. Lock or unlock?? What is the problem??

So the buttons inside work or don't they? Your title contradicts what is bold above.
If your door lock actuator is making noise(attempting the lock/unlock) the you could have a jam somewhere. If there is no actuator noise then you might have a bad relay or fuse. This would cause no lock/unlock condition and yet the lights still flash.
Also, I believe all the lock/unlock controls execute off the driver door master switch, so if that goes bad, you could have the same problem.
