    I have the same issue; it started with my driver side door and now it is both doors. If I lock the doors I have to climb through the back to get in.

SOURCE: The Fob on my 2001 Ford Explorer will not lock all doors

The problem is not with the FOB, it's within the vehicle. All the FOB does is send a signal to a modual and the modual sends signals to all the locks. I'm sorry I can't be of more help.

1998 4x4 ford explore driver side door will not


There are long linkage rods from the inside handle to the latch assembly. There should be an adjustment on these links. Too tight keeps latch from locking, too loose it won't unlatch. Use a screw driver or rod to trip the latch asm so you don't have to keep opening and closing the door. Also if it sticks closed and won't unlatch, the door won't be locked closed on you.

Open the rear inside cover and you will see where the keeper for the handle mechanism may have broken. You can get this from any part store. It is difficult to get in there but a small hand can open it for better access.

Keys and Keyfob do not open 2001 explorer from outside


Spray some WD-40 into the key cylinders and then try working the key. The locks seize up because you keep using the FOBs.

Door lock staying locked so door cant clamp on to the striker


Hello and welcome to FIXYA, it sounds like you have two problems, first the door ajar switches in your truck are sticking, and causing the ajar light to remain on, and second the door lock actuator is shorted and getting stuck in the lock position. To repair the switches, obtain a can of brake cleaner and spray the door latch of each door for about 3 to 5 seconds, then open and close the door 10 times to work the cleaner into the switches. To fix the lock problem, you must first pull up on the knob in the door panel to unlock it. Then remove the door panel, and replace the door lock actuator.

2003 Explorer door ajar light stay on when all doors are closed


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.
