Question about 2005 Ford F-150
I own a 2005 F150 XLT Ford pickup. The power door locks will unlock automatically with the door button and the key fab. Neither the door button or the key fab will lock the doors. The key fab button flashes the lights when I push the lock button but it does not lock the door. Also, the system use to lock the doors when the truck would move forward. This no longer works. I think this is some safety relay or something that has failed. The buttons are not tight working up and down. I have rebuilt other door locks before when they were tight. These are smooth and easy to move. The locking mechanism makes no noise when I push the lock at all.
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.

2006 f150 doors do not know that they are closed or open...followed some forums which said that it was the bsm...what do we do now that the bsm is out?
