Hello,

You may have 2 issues going on at the same time.
1. The child lock safety latch is up, preventing you from opening the door from the inside.
2. The inside clip to the rod that opens the door from the out side could of come off from closing the door to hard. Or the lock itself is getting stuck.

Options:
Roll the window all the way down, and look through the window crack with a flash light and see if any of the rods are just hanging and not connected.
If there are you can try using a slim jim with the cut out part facing up and try to catch the latch and pull up this could open the door.

Or you can try to take off the door panel from the inside, however this is very difficult and should be done by a professional becuse you don't want to break any thing or cause more dammage.

Once the door panel is off you can then pull the inside door release rod and open the door.

One more thing you can try: Pull the inside handle and the out side handle at the same time while having some on pull or push on the door, it just might be stuck and need a little force to open!

SOURCE: 1998 GMC 2500 driver side door won't open from inside

standard problem; must replace the handle on the inside which entails drilling out rivets, etc. Easier to have a mechanic do it and the cost is around 150$... kind of worth it when you try to do it yourself. Let the problem go longer and the handle, itself, just lies there in a retarded fashion. Basically, the inside of the door latch has a piece of plastic that breaks off. Go figure. Build cheap ****; expect bad results.

This should have been made from a higher density material to offset this problem.

SOURCE: 1997 Lexus front door will not open from outside

unless you are mechanically inclinde don't mess with it get someoen you love and adore to do it for you, you can break the tabs that hold the door on and it can get expensive the worst part is it might not open at all if you don't understand how to operate it unless you have one of the experts here helping you with it step by step, but could take as much as 4 hours depending on your ability to work with your hands. Some people just don't need to own wrenchs they are a danger to themselves and the public at large, not saying they are not smart but just don't have the know how and motor skills. I am telling you this so you won't have a headache on your hands.

You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. If needed, you can pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything inside the door

SOURCE: How do you install an inside door handle on a 1997

On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Then you can put the new handle in and reconnect everything
