Jammed door lock

What typically causes a door lock to jam? Mine won't lock.

Thanks.

Which door?
If its a rear door, fiddle with the child lock because I've come across this before!!
If not the above then get the door card off and get your hand in there, could be a rod off, or a plug that needs a helping hand with its connection !!

You may be right. I was noticing today that the lock knob (this is the driver's door) isn't straight up and down like the others appear to be. May be that something disconnected during installation, or I just didn't notice it. I hope to get at it tomorrow night.
