To remove the door panel, remove any screws that are in the vicinity of pull handles and door pockets. These screws will be under little trim covers that you need to prise off to get to their heads. Look for the screws around the edge of the panel and also the screw in the latch release handle recess.
The lock knob, if there is one there, will have to be screwed off and then carefully work your way around the door, freeing the panel's clips from their holes in the door frame. (Doot panels are brittle and clip break out easily).
Finally the panel will probably have to be lifted out if the window slot. (If the panel does not come off, work out what is retaining it and remove that screw or slide it off the clip that is still holding the panel. Disconnect any electrical plugs behind the panel. Under the panel you will find a plastic dust sheet that is stuck to the door frame, remove this carefully, you will have to replace it before replacing the panel.

All doors open besides drivers it lock me in have to climb over seat to passengers n windor off track but there's power to open windor butglass off track

A rod connects the inner door handle to the lock mechanism. Possibly the window off track damaged the rod or knocked it off where it attaches to the lock or the handle. To check this you must remove the inner door panel. I suggest you check "you tube" to see if there are any vids on the procedure.. if not go purchase the Chilton manual or take the car to a serviice center. It will be at lease 2 hours of labor + any needed parts. the window can be repaired at the same time since the inner panel will be removed.

    How to remove inner door panel on a 1999 dodge caravan

    Almost all door panels are attached by:
    SMALL PHILLIPS HEAD SCREWS- these are found all around the door panel. They are normally hidden by; small plastic grommets (round, flat plastic push tabs used to cover and make it look pretty!)
    -remove with flat head screwdriver or your nails at-own risk,
    -easily popped off by squeezing outer edges inwards releasing the male part on the speaker cover from the slot on the door panel
    THE RUBBER OR PLASTIC COVER- found on the inner side of the door handle
    -this cover may not be there for your model and you may see the screw or the grommet. If not, remove cover with flat head screw driver or needle nose plyers, then remove screw/s

    1)check for grommets if screw/s are not in plain sight)- plastic push tabs (flat head and round about a 1/4 to a 1/2 inch in diameter, normally matches the car door panel and fits flush with the panel as well so look closely! You will need a flat head screw driver for this part or try your nails at own risk.),

    2) Once you have removed all the screws and or push tabs shake the panel to pin point any remaining screws or tabs. Some times there are slots in the door frame that join with the male part located on the inner side (touches the door) of the plastic panel.

    good luck!

    How do I remove the drivers side inner door panel.

    Best thing to do is go to Auto Zone and buy some extra door panel clips, the old ones will most likely break and when you try to place the door panel back on you can't. The clips are not that expensive and Auto Zone can give you the step by step instructions and tell you what tools your going to need to remove the old clips with out damaging the door panel. If you don't want to buy the door panel tool, Auto Zone also has a tool loner program. 
    Good luck and hope this helps. If you need instructions, keep me posted and be glad to help.
