Question about 2005 Ford F-150

1 Answer

Door locks wont unlock or lock

I have a 2000 F-150 that was recently broken into with a screw driver hammered into the drivers side lock which knocked the lock completely out of its place allowing the metal bar that lifts the lock inside the door to be reached from the outside. I took the door apart and glued the plastic piece that holds the lock inside the handle back together and put everything back together and the locks would work with the key fab and after about 2 or 3 weeks they got sluggish and eventually the drivers side would not work at all and about 2 weeks after that the passenger side stopped working as well. When i push the lock or unlock button on the key fab or the door controls i can hear the motor make the normal noise as if it were working but the locks dont move. Same when i put the truck in drive and the locks are supposed to lock i can hear the motor work but the locks dont move. I now have to manually lock the doors and to get in i have to manually unlock the passenger side with the key and reach over and pull the door handle on the drivers door in order to get in the truck on the drivers side. Is there anything i can do to make the locks work again?

Replace the drivers side latch. It on the door jam. You have to remove the drivers side panel to get it out. Look for screws behind plastic plugs. Around the door handle and the arm rest. Sometimes around the perimeter of the door. then the panel will pop off. pop off the plastic mounts from the rods(look at them, you'll see how they come off). Three screws and two electrical plugs on the jam and pull the latch out

Why wont my drivers side door unlock with the key?


If it works from the inside but not with the key, it could be a broken link between the lock cylinder and the door latch.

Why wont windows and lock work? could it be the front ecu?


Check inside of door where wiring comes thru for broken wires ,ECU doesn't control windows or door locks. You didn't state what model vehicle you own. But opening and closing door on drivers side causes broken wires on numerous vehicles over the years, most makes and models. Split boot and check all wires inside for breakage.

My driver side door wont open how do i get it


sounds like the door lach is sticking
use some wd40 spray the lock and let it sit 4 a while
now since you have the inside skin off reach inside the door with 1 hand and try and open the door from the outside and see if the lock bar moves it usualy pushes down i think on a lach
if it goes up and down with no resistance make sure it is contacting the lach if yes make sure the door is unlocked
somtimes the lock is just stuck
after unlock open the door
push down on lock bar attached to lock then pull up on it if that fails to open door
after that all fails unlock door have friend pull handle and then give the door a good kick from inside just remember not the kick the glass
