Factory manuals will help you a lot on this one if you have them. Use a trouble light and shine it down the passengers side door. Lock and unlock the door a few times to see how it works. Now do the same on the non working driver's door. Hopefully you can tell what's disconnected. Take a stiff wire like a coat hanger and put it down that drivers door using that trouble light to go down to the disconnected spot, and hopefully unlock it without too much hassle. I've done this on older cars, but some of the newer ones are harder to do because they're built different now.
