How do I remove the inside door panel on drivers side
I have a 2001 Mercury Grand Marquis GS. The driver's side door does not unlock or lock with the remote control or the electric door buttons, the other three doors do lock and unlock. I can lock and unlock the driver's side door with the key. I can open the door from the inside with the door handle. I can hear what sounds like a thin rod of metal falling back and forth when I move the door back and forth. I want to remove the driver's side door panel so I can see if something is disconnected or broken.

the code is usually found on stickers on the trunk hinges. if not remove the drivers door panel, the code is on the module that is in the door. use that code to access all functions including setting your own code.
To get inside the car .... Use the key in the lock cylinder, unlock the drivers door to get inside. You shouldn't have to reprogram the fob unless it or the keyless module was changed. There may be a blown fuse that supplies the keyless control module (check the owners manual for location). or wires that lead into the Drivers door may be damaged ... The keyless module is located inside the drivers door at the bottom behind the door panel ... do the unlock/lock and trunk release switches on the inside of the drivers door operate the locks and or trunk release? If so it is not the fuse ... and not the wires to it ... And it could be your BCM body control module, located in the dash board to right of your gas petal. Because the number entry keypad (code for that is on the inside of the right passenger trunk bracket arm) also doesn't work I assume it's not the key fobs themselves. Your 98 manual is correct for your car.
Pop out the window buttons part of the armrest and disconnect the
wires. Do the same with the trunk and fuel door buttons. Pop out the
two little plastic/rubber whatever they are pieces out of the door pull
strap and remove those screws. There's another screw on the bottom edge
of the door and the outer edge by the reflector. Pop the bezel out from
around the door handle and there's another screw. Pull out and up on
the door panel. If you don't know your door code now would be a good
time to write down that 5-digit number on the lock control box. You
might not have to pop out the button panel or trunk/fuel buttons if you
can get your hands behind the panel and take the harnesses apart but
you a bad dude if u can.
