Unhappy Weird (and probably simple) 1999 Civic door problem...

Hey all. So a couple weeks ago my driver side rear door of my 1999 Civic refused to open - from the inside or outside. However, the power locks would lock and unlock the door. I had assumed it was some sort of problem with the handle engaging the latch to open the door so I decided to leave it alone until I had enough money to get it checked out.

Then, yesterday I had the passenger side rear door open to unload some stuff and noticed a small white switch on the part of the door that meets the body of the car when closed - where the latch mechanism is. I didn't read whether there was any text there or not because it was dark but I decided to flip it and closed the door. When I tried to open it (inside and outside handles) it wouldn't regardless of whether the doors were locked or not! And I realized I'd just purposely caused the same situation that had likely been accidentally triggered on the other door.

I don't think it's child safety locks as they'd still be able to be opened from the outside still, correct? Again, the power locks are moving up and down but neither door can be opened. Am I missing something horribly simple here? Help! and thanks in advance for the answers....

Got the doors open by taking off the screw behind interior panel and pulling the metal rod manually. Then I turned off the child safety lock mechanisms.

Now the doors open from the inside but the outside still won't work! Any ideas??
