Question about 2002 Ford Taurus
Also door locks not functioning when shifting into drive
Sounds like the door switch doesn't work or one of the doors is not closing all the way to engage the switch. It could just be out of adjustment. Try going to each door one at a time and depressing the switch with all the other doors closed to see it one of them is not getting depressed all the way when you close the door.

I had this problem on my 2003 explorer and took WD40 and gave the lock mechanism a good dose where it meets the clasp on the door jam. Then open and close the doors a couple of times to get them working. They get gummed up and sometimes have a tendency to stick.

Big problem with most Fords. The car wont autolock as it thinks that one of the doors is still open. Easiest and most effective thing to do is squirt WD-40 in all of the door locking mecanisims (no one said that I had to be a good speller) Not the key hole but the claws that grab the post on the body. (when you shut the door it is held closed by 2 arms that grab a post on the door jamb. Spray the claws realy good and the work the door open and closed about 20 times. Should fixit!

Most likely, the auto-locks aren't working because it thinks one or more doors are open.
The door ajar switch is located inside the rear door face along with the latch. They can tend to get dirty and sticky over time. Using your favorite petroleum based lubricating spray, shoot it directly into the door latch area, being very liberal. Open and close your doors several times to make sure the switch is working freely. You should do this one door at a time so you can diagnose which door is causing the issue in case it resurfaces. Should be good to go.
