There are some hidden screws by door handle and by the mirror. Remove all the screws you see, pop loose the plastic by door handle and locks. Then with the door open, slowly and carefully pry around the panel until it loosens up and comes off.

Inside driver door handle broken 1998 toyota camry

Best guess is the linkage (cable) on the inside of the door frame is no longer connected to the inside door handle. You will need to take the door apart, and hook the cable back up on the inside of the door.

Dash lights intramant panil out

Intermittent faults rob years from our lives!!! I've rather a root canal to intermittent fault isolation!! Chapter 11 of Murphy's law reminds us simply checking various spots will cause the fault to disappear until you really need to go somewhere.

Could be a loose or dirty connection so check the fuse box, even if the fuse look good remove clean it and replace. Hopefully you can easily get to the back w/o removing the entire panel. Change the bulb.

Finally is it is a current year model let the dealer do it, should be covered(or not disallowed).

How to open rear drivers side door will not open from inside or outside

I don't know what kind of car or truck you have, but I had that same thing happen a several times.
You likely have a inside door latch theat is messed up.
The last one I had , the problem was a tiny spring, (hardly much bigger that the coil spring inside a ball point pen), had fallen down inside the doort and was lying on the bottom of the inside of the door.
You might be needing a new or used door latch.
If you do not take it to a body shop and have them open it for you, you will most likely need to "tear" the inside door panel apart and take a good flashlight and try to "trip" the door latch through the holes in the metal door that are inside the door panel.
You may find this really hard to do, and it may take you many hours of trying.
This has been my experience, and I've had to do this about 5 times in 25 years.
You would eventually need to get a used inner door panel to put back on the inside of the door.
Be blessed.
