Re: 2003 buick park avenue
Take all screws out and pull out around the edges, should pop out, then lift up by the window. or Go to this website. It shows you how to remove the door panels. Ignore the part about side mirrors. kwmuth.com with this model but I've had the inside door panels off several cars. + Then unscrew the armrest/handle (2 long screws). + Then run your fingers under the bottom of the panel (it is probably upholstered/padded hardboard) - this panel is usually held on by about 5 or 6 clips that pop out. + There may also be speaker wires etc if door-mounted speakers have been installed. + Then you should be able to gently slide the door panel up, so that the top ridge pops out from alonside the window glass.

These are a pain to do so you will need to remove the small trim peice behind the inside door handle to get to a small screw holding the door trim on. Next retaining clips hold on the sides and bottom door trim. Some screws may be on the bottom too on some models. using an old tablr fork helps out by removing the center fork prongs which will be used as a pry bar to pry up on these clips. Once removed you can gain access to the switch. Some models will let you pry out the switch panel instead of removing the whole door trim. If the switch is mounted in a panel that is separate from the door trim it will come out that way separately
There are approx 12-15 star shape small screw that hold the panel in place, inside the glove box, by the speedometer, next to the driver door just to the left of the steering wheel, also, you will have to pull on the panel slightly to unsnap the inserts
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.
You'll need to 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. If needed, you can pull back the weather
(can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to
access everything inside the door
Well just guessing here that you think it's a fuse, or fuse's because you're looking for the fuse panel. I can almost certainly say it's not the fuses, as each of the problems you've described are run off separate fuses. Unless this car was just bought, The fuses may of been removed. If this is the case, I BELIEVE the fuse panel in this car is located on the left hand side, between the door and the dash.
