Hello,

This means the lock is stuck on becasue the linkage has fallen off the latch. You will need to remove the door panel and work the lock portion of the latch to open the door then fix the linkage.

Here is a guide that will give you an idea of how to remove the panel.

Please let us know what happens.

Best, Ken
