Question about 2002 Ford Taurus
Can you tell me where on the door we should try unlocking it using a coat hanger. The keys are in the ignition and all doors are locked.
Your message is already old so you surely have gotten into your car by now but for future problems, I'll post this anyhow.
Coat hangers may work but if you can find a friendly cop, they often carry 'slim-jims' which is a thin, flat, flexible piece of steel that slides easily past the gasket and has a hook-like opening on one end to catch the mechanism.

Straighten out the metal coat hanger and bend one end of the hanger into
a hook shape. Make the hook about one inch.
Place the end of the metal coat hanger with the hook on it between the
window and the frame. Place the hanger 1/2 an inch behind the door handle
toward the the edge of the door closest to the rear door.
Push the hanger down about two feet into the door frame. Pull up on the
hanger until you feel the hook catch onto the metal arm inside the door frame
that controls the lock. You may have to try a few times before the hook catches
the metal arm.
Pull up on the hanger once the hook has connected to the metal arm until
the door lock unlocks. The lock handle on the inside of the car will move once
you have connected the hook to the metal arm that controls the door lock.
