More information may be needed, but, if you are referring to using the power-door *buttons* to open it:
  • Ensure the door is *unlocked*

  • Turn off the automatic door switch up by the rear view mirror

  • The door now should be in full *manual* mode and able to be pulled open, especially from the inside.

Does it feel like the locking / unlocking is jammed? You can remove the interior side door panel from the inside to check the door lock linkage:

1. remove the retainer screw from the door handle cover and remove. 2. remove the screw from the bottom left corner of the door panel. 3. pull the door panel away from the door, starting at the bottom. Lift up and off the door. This should expose enough of the linkage to be able to inspect it for damage, where it may have come disconnected, spots to grease, etc.
