Default Passenger Door Handle won't open from outside

Hi, I am posting about a problem with my Passenger door single cab problem I am having. I just bought this truck a month ago and the door will not open from the outside if the doors are unlocked. It's weird cause the door will only open from the outside IF you turn the key in the unlock position and hold it while opening the handle and it will also open up from the outside if the door is shut half butt, like if you don't shut the door all the way, enough for it to latch on to the gold hanger clip, it will open fine with no problems, but when the door is 100 percent shut, it won't budge any when I try to open it unless I have the key in the unlock position WHILE i am pulling the handle. The door will open from the inside lever fine and it will also open on the outside if I am on the drivers side clicking the unlock position on the auto locks WHILE someone is on the outside pulling the lever. I checked the rods and from what I could see all looked connected however I was wondering if there was something that I could be missing here? I am lost. Thanks!

Looks to me like its in your latch its self now I don't have power locks but I can see that both rods are far enough away that they by them selfes can't. Bind up but they both go to latch. Go id go there.
