I slammed the door shut one time and the door wood not open at all. I had to take the inside door handle off and found that the cables simply came off of their post (inside the door) on the outside part of the door handle. More than likely only one cable has come off its post on your van. I hope this helps!

Same problem here. I finally got it after soaking the bottom latch with WD40 for a week. I ended up cutting the bottom rubber seal OFF below the latch. With a BMF screwdriver and hammer and three swings...it opened. The bottom of the latch has an "L" shaped metal guide-this is not the latch. Beside that, towards the rear of the truck, is the latch. The bottom part of the latch must be forced towards the cab and upwards at about a 45 degree angle. After removing the part I could see that it couldn't be unlatched from the inside no matter how much lubricant, heat, cussing or beer drinking I did. TOTAL COST: Latch-about $58 dollars (dealer item only)
Rubber seal- $25 or so

In the windshield wiper area on both sides of the car you will see a rubber plug about 1 inch in diameter. Use a flatblade screw driver (about 8-10 inches) and poke this plug out of its hole into the engine compartment (you can recover it later.) Insert your screwdriver through the hole until you find the release latch. Just push it until it releases.

I am sure you have found your solution by now... but just in case: My wife did the same thing.. you can reach in on the right side and push down on the rod to open. There are aftermarket handles available on ebay and other sources for around $35. I am currently searching install instructions as I just got mine in today.
