Default Child Safety Lock Stuck - Rear Passenger door - Only opens from outside

Happened today all of a sudden. Drove a little niece around and she wouldn't answer any questions as to what happened ()

So I have no information as to what could have happened.

Door will only open from the outside.

Door will not open from the inside.

Regular door lock moves up and down just fine.

The "Switch" that moves up and down to turn the child safety lock on/off is STUCK. it will not move to the UP position.

I don't want to just spray WD-40 EVERYWHERE before I assume it is a lubrication issue. What is the name of the piece needed if I were to replace an entire assembly?

Estimated cost for a window repair shop to fix? Hopefully I can fix it myself.

It's possible that the plastic piece that holds the latch bar to the inside handle broke & bar slipped out. Pull off the door panel to see if it's connected.

Thank you. I'll provide pictures this weekend.

Any idea what the name of the part is in case I need a new one?

It could still be the child lock, but you still have to pull the panel to get to it.

I have an extra one of those if you need it. Heck, I can send you all the clips for the entire door if you REALLY need them. I think the problem is most likely in the latch though. Have you tried to engage the dang thing with the car running or with the key in the run position at least? For some reason, I keep thinking it has to have power to it in order for it to work. Of course, I'm not an ASE mechanic, so I'm probably WAAAAAAYYYY off base here. Nitro_PT is a retired master mechanic. Maybe he knows and will post something.
