rear door, won't open or close all the way-starting issue too

It seems like part of the latch is working, and part of it isn't.

I took the panel off, but even if I mess with the rods attached to the actual latch, I can't get it to open.
It started with requiring a good tug upwards on the door handle to get it to open...then one day it just would not shut. I slammed the door, but that got it in the state it's in now...not really closed...but it won't open either.
It's cold up here and I don't want to take the door off to fix it...any ideas?

Also, when I left for vacation it was running ok, now it won't start, the battery is fine. If it's not a simple problem, I might have to tow it somewhere because I don't have a garage to work on it in this cold ass weather

The inside door panel will have to come off to see what's up. Will the starter crank the engine?
