Driver's side door will not open with remote or key. What needs to be fixed? on 2000 Ford Explorer

The only way I can open the driver's side door is by opening it with the inside handle.

Door handle will open door when door is not locked. If its the unlock rod, is it easy enough for a novice to repair?
