2007 LT silverado passenger door won't open. It opens from the outside but not the inside. Power lock, window, and
ect works but the handle won't open the door

The door panel will need to be removed to inspect the linkages. One probably popped off.

odds are the linkinge on the inner handle has either popped off or the plastic has fractured which the linkage sits in this is quite common on old fords and rovers

One other thing,....If the outside handle dose not return to it's rest position after opening the door, the inside handle won't work.

Hi WesleyT, Sorry to hear you're having this issue with your vehicle. Because I'm not a Certified Technician, I am unable to diagnose what's going on with your door handle. I would recommend stopping into your Chevy dealership and have them repair. Good luck! Vanessa GM Customer Service
