Question about 2002 Ford Taurus

2002 taurus passenger door lock

Sometimes when Im driving my inside lights come on, my door locks go up and down, and my door open indicator comes on, as if one of my door are open. I open and close all doors, the light goes out only when I open and close my front passenger door. Even when Im driving, this issues occure, but it I open and close that same door, it stops the problem. Could this be the door lock, or the lock indicator associated with that door lock? Thanks.

Mine did this. I went around to each door and sprayed a liberal amount of WD-40 in the latch, then open and closed each door about five times. It hasn't done it since. I think the switch inside was not moving freely.

2002 suburau forrester - front passenger door won't open from inside - all locks operate normally- opens from outside only

The rod may have come off the inside handle or latch. You will have to take off the door panel and see if its connected. Sometimes the inside handle breaks where the rod attaches. If not the latch would be faulty.

Can't get the passenger door open the inside and outside handles won't work can't raise the button up to unlock the power button won't raise the button either other doors work

If I remember correctly, that year Taurus still had the old style lock buttons by the window glass. You should be able to use a sharp object and dig into the plastic door lock by the window. Knife, box cutter, anything that will gouge the button enough to get a purchase to pull the lock up. Pull it up, open the door, then remove the door panel to find out what's wrong. Probably open circuit in the door wiring or broken clip for the rods.

Ya could find someone with a slim-jim who knows how to hook the rod to unlock the door. Ford dealer? Locksmith?

When my passenger door is opened then closed the light on the dash indicates that the passenger door is ajar, dome light is on and doors will not lock until the door is open and closed sometimes once...

There is a tiny switch inside the door called the "Door Ajar" sensor, remove the door panel and replace that switch, it is attached to the door latch, it just twists out and back in.

2002 Taurus broken antenna and door open/ajar indictor light

Can't help with the antenna. As far as the door ajar goes any of the cars doors can cause this, it is a ting switch that is twist locked into the door latch that fails and gives the warning, it is referred to as the "door ajar switch" You need to have a scan tool hooked up to see which door is causing the problem, as I said any of the four switches can be faulty. Since all the door panels would likely need to come off to find the bad part the scan is the best route.

Central Locking not working

Hi Craig,
I'm running a E34 Tds Touring with a similar problem, my rear doors and tailgate have dropped of the central locking circuit.
I have been told it is the Central locking Module a large black box under the dash that is faulty, apparently a common problem.
Hope this points you in the right direction,
Please remember to rate my effort!
