On your 1997 Mercury Mountaineer : Open the rear doors from the outside and on the end of the doors near the latch you will see a small lever that is used to select child locks on or off
Power door locks have relays located inside the cabin fuse box. Locate the relays for the door switch and see if they need replacing. If so replace the units.
Yes it can, very easy to do, have to order a new latch from the dealer, just tell them it's the latch that locks the top down, and which side it's on. Hope this helps.
Usually you can find the switch on the doors themselves. Open the door and look on the part near the latch. Sometimes, there is a switch by the driver if the car has power locks.
There is no latch. The fuel door locks/unlocks with the doors.
Power door locks are generally protected by a circuit breaker. Look under the hood for the power distribution box. Also under the dash to the left of the steering column.

If you open each of the back doors from outside , there is a selector switch for the childproof locks on the end of each door about 3 inches from the latch

There is no way to do this. There are child-proof locks on the sliding doors.
My locks were not working properly on my 2007 328i so I opened gas cover latch manually by going into trunk, opening right side cover by taillight, then pulling on plastic latch relase.
call a locksmith to have them rekeyed (this means the locks stay the same but the key changes) or buy new ones and try to replace them yourself.
The door latch will need replaced.

You probably just need to fix the latch. There are some repair shops and locksmiths that specialize in car trunk locks.
It should open from the inside. Then the switch is usually in the latch for the door. HTH
Same problem, but didn't replace the dome light.The locks will unlock but not lock.
I need some more information. What is not working? Can you hear the electrical click? Or do you hear nothing at all? Once I have this info, I can point you to the right direction.
there is a lock out switch on the actual latch witch locks out key
When i bought my thunderbird the key to the ignition didnt fit the door locks so i had to replace the locks. That might be the best answer. :]
Open the door and look on the edge with the latch, there should be one large screw that holds the door handle to the door. Take the handle off and you should have access to the locks now.
Locksmith or replace locks
In the short run, secure the hood with duct tape, straps, or whatever you can come up with. Then either get the latch fixed, (maybe oiling it will sort it out.)or install some of those hood locks that racers use.
