SOURCE: Exterior door handles
Door panel off,window up, you should be able to see the back of the handle. There should be 2 screws or nuts holding the handle on. There should also be a rod going to the handle that is held on with a clip. One end of the clip just lifts up off of the rod and then the rod should slide out of the handle.Sometimes it is a little difficult reaching in doors and doing this but just take your time and watch for sharp edges.
Once you have the door panel off you should be able to see how it all works. If you can't get to the upper clip you might be able to take the lower one loose and take the rod out with the handle.
I hope this helps and that I guided you in the right direction.

Take it to the buick dealer. As the daughter of a mechanic, it was a call I didn't want to make! The dealer installed two handles for me and painted them to match for under $100.00. Well worth the trip.

not sure about your specific vehicle but i do know that in the winter, when a door closes, it grabs the pin in your doorjam like a lobster claw closes on a finger. if any moister is inside the mechinism, it can freeze very easily. also if you pull on the door handles tp try to open it...if the door handle moves freely, then you either bent or popped the rod that goes from the latch mechanism to the handles and you would have to take off the interior wall of the door to get to it and fix the rod or put it back...it used to happen to older cars allk the time.

Check to see if the fuel pump is kicking in,
when you turn the key on without starting the van you should hear it kick on for about 2 seconds,
It could be...
A clogged fuel filter...
Blown fuse for the pump..or bad pump relay..
Bad fuel pump

Check the fuse blocks for blown fuses. We had a similar problem with one of our trucks, and it was a TCS or TCM (transmission system) fuse. Don't forget to check the fluid level (while running in park)
