Where is the fuse box on a 1997 Oldsmobile 88?

I assume the fuse box locations for a 1997 Olds 88 would be the same as for a 1999 - which are: (1) In the lower cover panel below the instrument cluster just left of the steering column - with a snap-off cover. (2) Passenger side 'kick panel' - side panel under the dashboard just forward of the door - lower cover panel underneath the dashboard and next to the firewall must first be removed. (3) Under the hood on passenger side on the firewall - need to remove black plastic outer cover (1/4 turn finger latches) then two black plastic inner covers (side spring latches).

Passenger side door on 1998 olds 88 locked and cant get it open even with key

Doubtful. I'd recommend a good locksmith to come pop the lock for you fron the window channel. If you know what to look for, just roll down the window, find the lock linkage, and pop the lock yourself.

Door will not open with the key

Does the key turn ? Can you unlock the door from the inside ?
It could be a broken clip holding the rod onto the key cylinder or a problem with the latch.

Keys locked in car

Being an older car model, you can probably get them out if you know someone with a slimjim. This is a long, narrow strip of metal with a type of hook on each side. This would be slid between the window and the door and allow you to catch onto the locking mechanism and release the lock. If this doesn't work, can you use a wire coathanger and get it into the car to release the door lock? Another thing you can do is find a friend with a AAA card. They could call it in and have a locsmith come out and unlock the door. If someone with AAA rides in your car, their AAA benefits will cover getting your car unlocked
