Sounds like the activator rod that goes from the door Handle to the latch is disconnected. You will have to get the door open to repair it and a good mechanic or tow truck driver can use a slim Jim kit to get the latch to release and then you can pull the door panel and find the problem.
There are Six screws In total. One behind the handle, two along the edge of the panel and another one by the pocket inside the door,there is another where you grab by the switches. Its covered by a small plastic cover that clips in to place,
That will allow the switch pack to be pulled up and disconnected,there is also one behind the speaker cover,You also have to pry off the cover for the back of the mirror,once all the screws are out, you'll pull the lower edge toward you and lift the panel straight up to clear the lock rod,Pull the bottom edge toward you and then push the panel up. The top edge of the panel sits in a channel on the sealing strip for the window, so you'll have to give the panel a bit pf a push,It also has to clear the bracket that the switch pack was screwed to. Hpe this helps, glad to have been of service to you.
The acuator , or arm has came apart. take it to a local auto glass shop to have them remove the door panel and open the door from the inside then replace the acuator or arm. Getting the door panel ooen will be a tricky project but can be acheived with a skilled individual.
If you are not mechanical, you can take it to a dealer for a fix, or a glass shop can pull the interior door panel for you. then you can find the broken or disconnected linkage between the latch mechanim and the inside door handle. Repair or replace that part and then have the glass shop reinstall the inner door panel. while you are at it you may want to replace the nearly 10 year old window regulator.
Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions Section.

the handle might of broke internally, theres a rod and a clip that gets attached to the handle. i would take the door panel off and visual look at the latch mechanism and the rod that goes from that to the outside handle
Fortunately, it means that the mechanicals of the door opening device are working right, if you can open from the inside. The rigid wire that connects the outside handle to the door opening mechanism became loose, or a plastic connector broke. Disassemble the door panel, reach the handle from the inside, and see if there is a thin rod dangling somewhere, and if not broken, just put it back in place.
