This is only a possible solution to your problem. I had similar problem with my car. It turned out that the window locking toggle on the driver door not only prevented the other windows from being opened by passengers but also controlled the door locks. When I unlocked the window control I was able to unlock the door. Another possibility is the armature inside the door has come off the locking mechanism.

Sounds like the plastic clip that connects the lock has broken however regardless of fault the inner door panel has to be removed to diagnose and repair.It could also be inner door lock assembly.

A slim Jim is a fishing expedition. What you need to do is not worry about diagrams. Realize that the locking mechanism has just a very few parts that interconnect. The key hole where you insert your key, and the lock button that go up and down (or in some cases forward and back) are mechanically connected. It's that connection your fishing for and trying to move. You need to 'fish' between the lock and the button and try and 'hook' that linkage and move it in the dirction that moves your lock button to the unlocked position. If you really need a diagram many of the car part web sites will display a diagram for car parts. I've unlocked alot of doors with the method described and have never seen a diagram for what I'm doing. Good luck!

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.
