Question about 2003 Ford F150 Regular Cab
At about the same time, the headlights on my 2003 F-150 Lariat failed to come on automatically at dusk. Then the door locks refused to lock when shifting to drive. Any suggestions? I can turn my headlights and lock the doors manually. I can get by without this feature if I have to but, heck, I paid for it and do enjoy the safety of it.
The dealer spent 3 hours and couldn't solve my problem. I was in for an oil change and to diagnose this problem. They ask me if I could return at a later date to drop my truck off.

The fuse for the door locks is in the back of the fuse block. The fuse block is held in with a couple of bolts. There is only one fuse back there.

I had almost the identical problem on my 2005 F150 FX4 Extended cab last weekend. The power door locks would not lock using the keypad, remotes, or door buttons. Almost all other functions worked correctly. The doors unlocked, the radio delay functioned, and the interior lights dimmed. When I used the remote the horn would beep twice indicating that a door was open even there was no message on the message center that a door was open. When I used the keypad or remote, I could hear a soft click from behind the seat. I think it was coming from the body security module or body security module - whatever Ford is calling it this year. I pulled the fuse for the Power Door Locks(BSM). As I removed it, I heard a soft click - sort of like a relay resetting. It may have come from the VSM/BSM. It may have possibly been a stuck actuator releasing. I don't think so. It wasn't that load. In any case, everything is functioning correctly now.

I would follow their recommendation as I had the same problem with my car. They unhooked the power to that door and it was fine. The problem was a short in the wiring in the door that was causing the problem. So maybe get them to check the wiring in the door as well.

check fuse 63 first.

It could also be your GEM (generic electronic module) which is expensive as it controls a lot of stuff. A scan tool can be used to cehck for fault codes from the GEM.
