Question about 2004 Nissan 350Z
Question I have for you is have you had someone lock the keys in the car and someone break in for you. If so it sounds like they may have dislocated the lingage in the process. You will have to pull off the door panel and find the loose peace of linkage and re-attach it. It is not hard to fix. There are other ways that the linkage can be come detatched but the fix is the same

There is a cable that attaches to the inside door latch release handle. The plastic that retains this cable is most likely broken. I have seen this before. If the retainer is not holding the cable sheath correctly, the entire cable moves when the handle is pulled and does not release the door latch.
Remove the door panel and inspect this cable. You will see 2 cables (one is for the door lock). If the plastic is broken, you will need a new interior handle assembly.
Hope this is helpful!!

linkage on inside of door has come undone. take off inside door panel and you will find a small rod that goes to the lock mechanism where the door closes opposite the hinges. follow the handle to the door lock.the nylon bushing may have broken.they are cheap to purchase at auto part stores.

you need to remove the inside door panel to gain access to the guts of the door handle. its a pretty extensive repair for a novice.

SOURCE: The drivers door will not
inside the door on the release mechanism there are two rods held to the lock assembly by nylon clips. One is activated when you open the door from the inside the other from the outside. It sounds like one of the nylon clips has broken or come loose. This often happen after someone has locked their keys in the vehicle and used a slim jim to open the door.(a slim jim is a long flat piece of metal used to trip the lock from outside by inserting it between the window and the weatherstrip and activating the rod) Often during this process the rod is dislodged from the slot in the lock mechanism.
To access this you must first remove the inside door panel and the moisture barrier. You can then see if the rod is loose and if the clip is broken or just knocked loose. On some vehicles it's not possible to actually see the lock assembly and you have to feel your way through the process of checking for a broken clip or a loose rod.
