Hi. There is nothing electrical that needs to be reset after the battery replacement.

You are correct that if the door is not opening then, you will have to remove the panel from the inside. And of course, that is kind of a pain in the butt. But there are 5 screws that need to come out. Then the panel just pulls off. There are several pushpin type retainers.
