Door problems

My E36 was sitting for quite a while, and when I went to open the passenger side door it wouldn't open. It opens when you pull the handle then pull the handle then pull the door hard but it doesn't pop open like it should. how can I fix this? It's a 96 vert if that makes a difference

Is the window dropping to clear the gasket when you pull the handle?

Does the window open when you use the window switch? If not check the window fuses. If it does then you may have a bad switch in the door latch assembly.
