SOURCE: passenger door won't open
most common problem with replacing door handles on these is that you will encounter allignment probs for main catch which this sounds like. if you attempt to open from the inside then try putting lots of pressure on it till it should give way. once you acvhieve this, try looking at the very end of the door with the catch on. if you take a key and roll the latch till it locks and lake sure it is not too far into the mechanism, dont worry simply pulling door handle will disengage it, but once it is shut like this it is extremely difficult to undo.

this is what it looks like it will be mounted on the door jam not on the door just look for it you will find it . it works bye when you open the door it grounds the dome light ground wire to the body. i have fixed thees before it isnt too hard. if the pic does not come up i will put the link under it

My wife showed me that one- the doom lite in center of roof is 3 postision, slide it to passanger side then back to center. Its a poorly made switch but once set in middle the lites will come on/off with door openning/closing. Be aware it dims delays when going off, not immediate.

the actuator for the dome light is actually located inside the lock mechanism. Have you checked to make sure the dome light override button is in the out position?

Actually this is the answer, well at least it fixed my problem and for others reading before you go to dealer or buy replacement anything check some wires first.. first my unlock button didnt work driver side, then driver side window quit working and then radio wouldnt shut off..the equinox doesnt have a push button sensor its inside the hinges so its not the sensor...if you open your driver side door and in the jam look for the rubber boot....loosen the rubber boot from the door and from the frame of the car so that you can examine the wires inside there....to my surprise 4 of my wires were ripped in half and 2 of them had previously had an attempt to repair with crimps...so check your wires before you do anything else if your having any of the problems that I was having! Hope this helps, no where did I find the answer I was looking for on any forum, hopefully this is the problem and its a quick fix, just seems like it may be a problem that will continue to happen!
