Re: windows and locks don't work BUT THE DRIVER'S DOOR in...
You may have gotten water and/or ice down into the controls in the door. Replacing expensive (several hundred dollars) modules might solve the problem. When the weather wams up it might go away on its own. I avoid opening my windows in the winter now that I know my Park Avenue is susceptible to the problem.

Will the windows go up and or lock from the respective doors? Is this the master control on the driver that does not respond? If so remove the driver door panel ( see 97 Park Ave door lock for instructions ) and check the wireing harness located under the switch control panel, make sure all are pluged in well and are not damaged. If the wireing harness is in good repair You might want to check salvage yards for the appropiate control switch replacement. ( watch them remove it from the junker and you'll know how to install it )
Order the exterior door handle AND the clip that attaches the rod to the exterior handle from your local dealership ( any part in the salvage yard will have at least as much wear as the one U are replacing ) Also order a can of touch up paint matching your car. After you have the parts and have painted the new exterior handle, roll down the window and remove the interior door panel. ( instructions have been posted at 'replace door lock buttom' ) Two nuts, one on each side, hold the broken handle in place and must be removed ( DON'T loose them ). Loosen the rod from the clip at the top to allow a bit more room, But take note on the way it is attached ( you will need to reattach the rod to new handle ) To install new mechanism put the new clip on the rod, carefully place the gasket and the new handle in place and install nuts to secure. Test the door handle and make sure it works. Reinstall interior door panel.
