If you can open the door from the inside that's a good thing. The rod from the door handle from the out side has ether fallen off or it is bent and needs to be straighten out.
Your going to have to remove the door panel and make sure you have the windows rolled up. Once the panel is off you have minimal room to play with and make sure the key's are not in the Ignition. Don't want to lose a hand. 
Try to see the rod from the outside door handle and move it like your going to open the door. The rod if it's connected should move down to the door lock. If the rod has bent, then the rod does not move far enough to push the door lock to unlock.
Try to bend the rod straight with the one hand that you can only get in there till the rod can move far enough to unlock the door luck. When i say door lock i don't mean the lock cylinder, I mean the door lock half way down the door with the striker. you can use a screw driver to luck the door luck where the striker is and with the out side handle try to unlock it but trying to pull it out.
When the rod is straighten out long enough that the door luck can be unlocked with the out side handle, install everything back as it was in revers to how you removed it.
Your going to need extra door panel clips which break and you can pick that up at Auto Zone and you can also get the step by step instructions to removing the door panel if i was hard to understand and buy lots of band aid.Therer will be blood, lots.
Good luck and hope this helps.

Yes, Usually If you pull inside the lock area incorrectly, it will cause the rod to detach from the door latch. The door panel will have to come off and the rod, located and reattached. The retaining clip probably is damaged so inspect it and you should be able to find a replacement at NAPA or local dealership.

How to release back passenger door lock. Does it rotate in a full circle?


I have a bunch of 94 rodeos, and the locks are normal, up and down type, The driver's door locks the whole car. The rear and passenger only lock themselves, from the inside, from the outside, you have to hold the handle up. The driver's door will lock the whole car but you have to hold the handle up to lock the door. otherwise they all open again.I always use the key on the driver's door. If you are talking about the child proof lock on the inside of the door, it just flicks up and down. The rear door is opened when the glass is up. You have to unlock the glass either from the dash or the key in the back. Hope this helps.

1994 Jeep Grand cherokee rear lift gate


Well My 94 Jeep Grand Cherokee had the same problem and we had to just cut into the lift gate panel from the inside. It required cutting plastic but with a 94 looks arent everything and a working lift gate was worth it. But then we pealed back this black plastic mat under the panel and lifted up on the release bar(verticle bar that lifts the latch) and once we got it open we adjusted a little clamp that had slipped. Dont adjust it too much or when u lock it it wont lock! But sorry i dont know the name of the parts. But then u can screw the panel back in and it wont look to bad besides some cuts.

94 sunbird stalls when stopping


Could be an idle air control problem, or possible vacuum booster trouble, have also seen the baffle broken in the GM tanks and when you brake hard the engine dies. Fill the tank and try it, if it doesn't do it the baffle is bad.

HELP Will not go in Reverse


Need more information to be sure but usually reverse is the first thing to stop working when the fluid is low.  Check the fluid level and if it is low fill it to the proper level and then check for a leak.  If the fluid level is full more than likely it is an internal problem.
