You will need to remove the door panel and find out what is broken or loose. Unscrew the arm rest and release the clips that you will find around the outer edge of the interior door panel. Once you have it open, look in the bottom of the door to find any parts that have come loose. You may want to remove the panel on the passenger side so you have an example of how a working one should look.

try to remove your door panel and check to see if your latch is still connected. some times the rods will drop off. That or your catch on the door itself has come loose and dropped down enough to cause the door to stick and will not open from both inside or out

97 Suburban dome lights


It is not going to be a fuse, It is going to be your dome light switch on the dash or one of your door switchs is bad. I would start with drivers door, (make sure the other doors are closed) you can open the door and flick the switch in and out a few time. Push it in and let it snap out. (keeping a eye on the lights) If that doesnt work disconnect the door switchs one at a time. Dont let the wire touch a ground because that is what turns the light on. Make sure the dome switch on the light itself is not turned on. It is possible but not likely that a wire has come off of one of the door switches and grounded itself.

Drivers side door, not opening


VERY common issue.. the handle being replaced is ok.. but the actual metal rod that connects it to the latch needs bent a little to make it more responsive, what happens is over time this rod (which is bent slightly) will straighten, and the operator pulls harder on the handle which eventually brakes.. then replacing the handle will solve it for a while, until the trend repeats itself... VERY common, I have fixed hundreds in the shop so far...
