Sounds like the release rod came off of either the main latch or the inside release handle. My guess would be the latch since I don't see many problems with the inner handles. To check you have to remove the door panel. Follow the rod to the latch area. There should be a plastic type of clip that the rod came off of in the general area of the end of the rod. The rod may just push back into place.

    If you had replaced the latch then I'm guessing the rod came loose off of the latch to goes to the inside door handle. Maybe wasn't fully engaged?

2006 Chevy Equinox,interior light won't come on with the passenger door open.All other doors and hatch are fine.?

Could be a sticking switch or a break in cable somewhere. If it is the switch look around the door for a plunger that is out when door is open ( on oposite door) and look in same place on defective door and see if it is out or not. If not out spray with a releasing agent such as wd40.

Why do dome lights flash over a bump

look to see if a "door open" light comes on may be you need to adjust your door locking bolts...not a big deal. use the required driver(hex, star) and move the bolts back towards the inside of the vehicle...tighten and see if it happens again!

Replaced the map light assembly on my 2006 Equinox. Now the headlights stay on all the time. The headlights go off when you have the driver's door open.

sounds to me you have a short in some of the wires so if you know how to use a multimeter that you can check the wires connectors. Sometimes you have to also make sure that all wire connectors are connected so you do not have a short any where.

Check inside wiring by the driver's side door hinge. Remove the rubber boot and you will find broken wires. Make a splice and you are fixed!
