Driver door won't open from inside on 2005 Honda Odyssey

I cannot open my driver side door unless I roll the window down and open it from the outside handle. I've dealt with this for several months but fear going into winter now. If my window is frozen that means I'm stuck in the van! Any advise on repair? I can't find anything online. Thanks

inside door release is failed.

get a bod at a shop for this repair.

Is this something we can't fix on our own?
you need to purchase the part at the dealer and you will see what it looks like.

you may need to remove the door panel to gain acess. if you feel comfortable doing that, then yes, you can do it yourself.
