With quite some (intentional) difficulty and a long screwdriver, you can access the latch mechanism from underneath and behind the front bumper. Underskirt covers and other stuff will have to be removed.

Try to remember and visualize the cable routing. Since the cable is no longer connected to the pull handle and broken off inside the engine compartment make up a hook from a coat hanger or old brake line and try snagging the cable to pull it down under the car to get access to pull the release. Other option may be to get at it from one of the wheel wells, if its close to one of them. Many times the wheel wells have access plugs for lights etc you may be able to snag it through there.

The service manual may show the routing. Your local library has online access to most service manuals that you would have to pay for. Many time you can get access to them through their website if you have a library card. If not, go the library and get full free access to all the major car service manuals for free!

Idle is controlled by idle air motor and they can get dirt clogged and be cleaned. Of course, all tune up items can also cause this, as well as bad O2 sensor, TPS, EGR, and others.

Clean the throttle body(inside as best you can) clean the idle air control motor, and change the air filter if dirty..

Most likely a failed crankshaft/camshaft position sensor. This will not set a code if the engine is not starting. One way to check it out is with a spark tester - an inexpensive tool. Have an assistant try to start the car warm while it is installed and check for a pulsing light. If none, there is no spark.

It's a valve that is on a pipe from the exhaust to the inlet side, egr means exhaust gas recirculation and it to aid in cold starts and also emissions, it's usually at the rear of the engine to one side, hope this helps, it will possibly have a switch or plug coming from it

OK I suggest that you use a scanner to reset the light in case it was just a blip in the system but if it comes back on then there is a problem that needs to be fixed . Remember that the light also indicates for a transmission fault

Well the check engine light should be on and there should be a trouble code stored in the computer for the cylinder not producing power. Once you know that you can check for spark and fuel.

Make sure the switch is in good condition on passenger side if its good then remove skrews of the door n remove the two caps from handle that has 2 skrews holdin it n remove door panel. Then remove skrews that are holding motor n make sure window is secured so it won't fall wen removing it. Then check by splicing wires n touchin neg wit neg n pos wit pos direct to battery to see if it works if it doesn't then its a electrical problem. Hope this helped
