Question about Cars & Trucks
It has become disconnected. You will have to remove the inner door panel and see if the connecting lever is still attached and if the clip holding is still good. Check first, by trying to unlock your car with the key from outside... this is a good first check to determine if the lever is still attached.

You should replace the handle with an aluminum version. The best one I have found is sold on eBay for 12 dollars.
Look for the one sold by mike8756.
It is easy to install, does not require removing any panels. Th first one I replaced took me about 1/2 hour. I hae done several since for friends and now takes about 15 minutes.
Installation instructions are here:

You more than likely will have to remove the interior panel on the door which will be fun and take some time. Once you have it removed you should be able to manually operate the linkage and get it opened. I would be ready to locate a new panel just in case you break the original one, but they usually have some give to them if you take it slow. You might try removing the speaker also if you have one in the back door. It might give you enough room to use a stiff wire with a hook bent in it to operate the linkage.

This link is from the handle to the latch. The door panel has to be removed in order for this problem to be fixed. The linkage is inside the door panel, it is a small diamater metal rod called a link. If you do the job yourself be careful not to break the door panel. In a shop, the labor is 1 hour for the job & if any, parts will be a seperate charge.
