Door lock issues

Hi all,
Quick question after doing some searching. My 98 SH has an issue with the door locks. The key will unlock either door, but the passengers is a little harder to turn. It won't to lock the doors and it won't work at all on the trunk or the trunk lock down by the trunk latch using the key.
I can use the power locks and the trunk latch easy-peasy.
Here's where i get confused, i don't think its the actuator because isn't that the motor that controls unlocking/locking? And the power locks work normally if you use the switch.
Could it be that the locks physically are seized? Or could it just be the key itself that is the issue?
I've never had these issues on any car i've ever owned so a little advice would go a long way from some more informed people. :)
I'll WD40 em and see if that helps but something tells me that might not be it.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Well long story short, WD40 helped but i think its really that that master key is just worn out from use cause the valet key works fine. As in a lot nicer than the master key. Too bad its not designed to work on the trunk cause the trunk still won't budge.
