Typically the handle does not need to be replaced. If the handle is there but does nothing more than flop back and forth then a part, usually plastic, has broken inside the door. This part usually fits into one part and snaps onto another part. This combination pulls a rod attached to the door releasing mechanism. Oldsmobile dealers and some auto part stores will have a pictorial view of these internal door parts. Very labor intensive to replace.

I have a 2000 oldsmobile and i had this problem with the drivers side. come to find out it was the switch and not the motor.
