First, remove the door panel. This includes removing all the attaching screws, then prying off the panel. There are a few plastic fasteners that will come loose. You can re-use them when re-installing the panel or buy new ones -- they're cheap. Second, take an inventory of the problem. Chances are the connecting mechanism attaching the steel rod to the door handle has busted off. You'll need to purchase a new handle off of E-bay for about $12. To install it, you will have to use a drill (about a 1/8" bit) and drill out the center of the one rivet that holds the handle in place. Once you've drilled through it (it takes a little patience and a good drill bit), the handle falls off. After feeding the endpiece of steel door rod into the new replacement handle, place the handle into place, lining up the hole in the handle to the mounting hole in the door. Then use a thick, short bolt or screw to attach it to the door at the mounting hole. Then re-attach the inside door panel. Done!
