Question about 2002 Ford Taurus
If I remember correctly, that year Taurus still had the old style lock buttons by the window glass. You should be able to use a sharp object and dig into the plastic door lock by the window. Knife, box cutter, anything that will gouge the button enough to get a purchase to pull the lock up. Pull it up, open the door, then remove the door panel to find out what's wrong. Probably open circuit in the door wiring or broken clip for the rods.
Ya could find someone with a slim-jim who knows how to hook the rod to unlock the door. Ford dealer? Locksmith?

Sound like you have a dammaged door latch assembly. It is a pain but you have to take the insid door trim panal off to see what you are doing and make sure the latch assy is un locking. Dis connect power door lock motor linkage to make sure motot is not jaming the lock in the lock possition.

It sounds like the connecting rod popped out of its plastic connector. Pull the door panel off and check both ends of the rod. It must be unhooked at one end or the other.
