Pull the door panel & replace the electronic lock solenoid.
Not easy, but this is what you need to do.

Regarding the rear door child locks: There is a small lever on the latch side of the door, you can only see it with the door open. Move it to the other position.

Regarding the front door locks: You either have a bad door lock switch, or the power lock solenoids are beginning to fail. To check this, you will need to pull the door panels off, & measure the actual voltage at the solenoids whilst manipulating the lock switch. If you have 12 + VDC, I would suggest replacing the door lock solenoids. Not hard to change, but it IS time consuming. Best left to a dealer. Expect to pay 1 hour per side to change each solenoid.

All in all the panel is removed, THen the inner plates 12 bolts are removed. The window has to be taken out....

Not too much fun,....

Hope this helps.

How to reset anti theft

You have to have a key with the chip. Shut the hood and trunk, lock all the doors. If you have a key fob, try it first. That should disarm the security. If not lock it again and unlock the passenger side door with the key. Reach in and unlock the drivers door by the handle. If this works then your key switch on the drivers side is bad. That's why the security sets. Some times they just fall off the lock. They're made of plastic. If all that fails, your looking at a reset. That would be a locksmith or the dealer.

You'll have to pull the door panel to see what happened. The car is the same as a mid-size Ford LTD or Mercury Marquis if that helps.

Driver's door keyhole fell inside door

The only way to get the lock back is to take the door panel off the inside. There is a C-ring or E-ring that goes around the lock cylinder to hold it in the hole. Did some one punch it in to get the door open? There may be damage done. The lock cylinder may keep falling in if the hole is now to big. The lock cylinder goes in from the outside and the clip holds it from falling out of the door. It does not fall into the door very easily. If you take it to an auto glass place they can get the door panel off and on for you for a fair price. You do need a special tool to get the panel off without breaking the clips. You can rip it off and break the clips and purchase new ones from the dealer, an auto parts store or a window specialist. Hope this helps. If you have any more questions post them here I will check back again later.
