You need to remove the door panels to check if the linkage is broken or disconnected.

Thats the problem both doors wont open so how do you get the panels off? Take out the backseat? There are screws all over the panel and probally imposible to get to all of them with the door shut. The dealership wants $500 to fix both of them!

I realize it's tough, but that is the only way to get into the linkage.
