This is a common fault in Chevy Astro, and reasonably easy to fix. I had to replace all in my 1988 and starting the process in my 1998. Chevy dealers stock these parts due to popularity. All you have to do is remove the inner door panel (you may want to also by a couple spare fasteners you break at this feat). Handles just bolt in and connect to control rods.

All ASTRO van door handles have a generic problem. They are made out of a substandard material that breaks easily after repeated operation. Most likely, the part that the cable is supposed to attach to on your door handle is broken off. Every ASTRO I've owned, I have ended up replacing door handles on because of this problem
