What exactly is it doing? Does it feel normal when you pull the handle? Does the lock feel like it's working normal? Any noises?

can you not reach in and pull the rod cause if the rods are moving properly it should open have you tried shoving on the door as you try to open to make sure it isnt jammed up

This is a tough one... I've never come across where both handles didn't work. It's going to be tough to get this open since you can't get the door card off with the door closed, and you need to get to the internals. I'm stumped, so bump for you.

Sounds like a bad latch. Which can be a pain in the *** because you will have to take the door panel off inside the car and drill the latch out. I hate it when that happens it is not a fun job.

Good luck
