Open the passenger side door, there is a small round pull cable directly behind the fuel filler door. Pull it GENTLY, about a quarter of an inch- it will unlock the fuel door. Pull it too hard and it will break.

First remove the paneling (of the door) apply electricity to the motor, it doesnt matter to witch side as they both will carry power from one time to another, if that works, try checking the main switch on the driver side door, if you can get a friend to loan you his while you check or you might have to buy one. Its either the main switch or the passengers side switch if the window goes up when direct juice is applied to it.
I had the same problem, it was the body computer located under the steering collum. The bad news is if you get a used one it must be reprogramed for your antitheaf features.A new one from the dealer is 310.00 and you can expect labor charges to be about the same.
Check your buttons, levers, that are pushed in when door is closed, at your door posts. Use your thumb or finger and watch interior light go on & off as you push them in. If light flickers when in all the way, you found the bad switch. If they work o.k., check and see if maybe your door striker where door latch locks onto, needs adjusted in slightly to keep door tighter. Usually you can tell that if the door doesn't line up good when closed, with other door or rest of body. It will be sticking out slightly further.
you mentioned tht the quarter panel was hit before you owned it was the door hit also if you think bout it small breaks in the wire from the accident could have got weather in them over time and cause there connections to corrode or deteroiate let an automotive electrical shop give it a look
Your blend door actuator (also called air temperature actuator) motor is bad. It's pretty common. The bad part is located under the dash on the driver's side, toward the center of the dash It is mounted on some AC ducting, with the top of the unit facing toward the driver's door. Here's a forum thread discussing this issue (not monte carlo specific, but the pics of the part and the general location of said part is nearly identical. They take out a passenger side actuator motor in the thread. Driver's side is similar): http://www.w-body.com/forum/index.php/topic,41201.0.html
For a temporary fix if you're slightly inclined to working on cars, get under the dash and remove the plastic covers hiding the wiring in the driver's foot well (a couple push tabs and a couple phillips screws is all that holds it up). Locate the driver's side actuator motor (it's partially hidden by some wiring, you'll have to reach up there toward the center of the dash to find it), remove the unit (2 gold colored phillips screws and a black connector, a #2 phillips bit in a quarter inch socket applied to a small quarter inch drive ratchet works well here), and then manually flip the blend door to the "cold" side (there will be a little knob sticking out of the AC ducting that you'll see once you take off the actuator motor. Just grab that knob as gently twist left or right to make the air temp hot/cold).

GM wants $100 for the same part, not including the labor to install it (probably $45 to $90 for labor)
