If there is not a little card in the glove box considering it is a used car and probably is not.
The five digit code is printed in two other places on the car, at least this is how it is on mine. One copy is just under the trunk hinge on the drivers side of the car. The other is on the computer module behind the driver side door panel. which is hard to get to and seldom the code is printer on the computer module under the dash but check the trunk hinge first let me know if you found it otherwise you will have to take somethings apart!

I have a '97 Sable and the manual says you must have the 5-digit code that the manufacturer issued with the vehicle. It is permanent. It came on a small card, slightly smaller than a credit card. It looks like if you don't have it you're out of luck. If you had the code, you could then program your own code.

On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. You can then remove the bolts securing the mirror onto the door

No electric power to the power locks on door. no power to the climate control module

I have the same problem. The outside door panel lock wouldn't work. Had it worked on during the warranty period. Salesman said it just stopped working too early. Same thing happened again. I'm wondering if the electrical system is affected by the outside door panel - the laminated outside seems to be peeling off like my neighbors'!
