Question about 1999 Ford Explorer

1 Answer

I have a 1998 Ford Explorer. The door lock on the driver side will not unlock the doors as it use too. I can unlock the doors from passenger side some times, but not all the time. I just had a new door switch installed on the driver side and the mechanic didn't know what else to do. Hope you can help. The keyless entry works sometimes and not sometimes.

First I suggest check and re-check wires and harnesses connections at/from door lock switches at/from drivers side, some loss or harnesses connections sometimes make this wrong.

If, before this replacement your locks system was working fine, a bad installation could damage this and other components. This could be the answer at intermitent keyless work, or your secuirty entry module is advice go to bad. There isn't way to test this, try re-sunchronized the keys according with your Owners Manual procedure o just will reprogramming with the dealer tools.

Hope this helps.

    Do you have a wiring diagram that may help me trace where the problem might be, or can you tell me any other procedure that may help. The car is in my driveway now and I'll try anything once. How do I check the wiring myself?

    We dont have electrical wiring diagram about this, but we could send you the PATS test procedure (in spanish) to translate and check it. Just we need an email account.
    Keep in touch.

1998 Ford Explorer Door Lock


Hey guys , i got one that i think i know whats wrong but i want to check with others to see, ok so here it is my lock switch on the drivers side only unlocks the doors it does not lock but all the other lock switches in the car fully work so im thinkin maybe its the driver side door lock switch.


This is a common problem with this model. If you access the wires in the boot between the door you will find a broken wire about an inch from the connector. Hope this helps!!
