      Make sure you deactivate the child lock before you close the door! At least you can open it from the outside and be able to work on it. It sounds like you need to attach the cable to the latch.

      I had a wire clothes hanger stripped it and got it so that the door handle in an open position stuck the hanger in the slot in the door and you fish it around and there is a lever inside that should open the door it took me a few tries
