You have to take the inside door panel off on most cars. On some you just open the door and their is a clip in the door jamb. I am not sure if your car has this. The Oldsmobile (GM) has good locks though. Very difficult to pick. Purchase a complete lock set off of the internet that are keyed the same. Take off the inside panel. (a few screws and lots of clips) The window must be down to remove the panel from the window hole. You will have to reach up and grab the clip on the back of the lock and pull it towards the side. (prepare for knuckle cuts and bruises) The window must be up to remove the clip from the lock. There is a tool for doing this, but it is expensive. I usually use plyers. Good luck.

Some locks are held in place by a nut. (10mm) but I am pretty sure yours is a clip.

Based on the information you have given to this point, I am just going to give you a few possiblities. Have you had a tune up done recently? Air filter been checked or changed? I am not in any way trying to sound sarcastic so I apologize if I come off that way.Those would be my first things to inspect if I were ask to look at your car. I would also check fuel pressure and inspect the fuel pressure regulator.I would consider these things and go from there. I Hope this helps you but please let me know if you need more information on what to do next but I may need some more information at that time also .

SOURCE: Door handle linkage disconnects

You'll have to remove the door panel,yes the whole thing,and look for any broken or missing parts in your door latch/lock linkage.Be careful not to break any wires that power your windows/locks while removing the panel.It may be just a plastic clip that holds the linkage together has fallen off.Check in the bottom of the door well for parts that may have fallen down there. A manual from the library or online is a big help here.

Check childproof lock if you can open it from the inside, but usually the connection between the handle and the lock for the outside door handle breaks.
if you can't open the door using either inside or outside door handles, go to a locksmith, auto electrician or a Nissan dealer or risk severely damaging the interior door panelling trying to do this yourself...
Please get back to us with the solution you found worked as it may help someone else in the future, thanks.

Well first remove the door panel then look for a link that joins the lock to the door handle, you will probably find that the clip that holds it on has broken.

the lock should come out of the handle. usually there is a clip holding it in. sounds like its broken and you will need another handle, a locksmith should be able to get another lock and make it fit your old key. The dealer is the only place to get a new handle from as far as I know.

if you hit the lock button a couple times, will it finally lock?

If so, then you will need to take door cover off and lube up the connectors as they probably got corroded.
