there's a cable that runs from the door mech up to the top latch, need to pull down on this cable to release the top latch. Only way I could pull down enough to release was through the hole just left of the opening for the mech...cable is attached to the door frame with plastic tie wrap...pop this out so the cable is free in there and then just pry down with a screwdriver...make sure your pulling the handle at the same time. Once the door is open, it's easy to see what happening, most likely the cable is stretched out too much. I just ordered the part from Ford, the cable and top latch come as one part...about $60.

Problem Solved Look No Longer. Overdrive switch fuse blown, auto door locks not working, fuse after fuse after fuse, chasing wires grrrr. Remove the steering column cover (3 screws from the bottom) opens like a **** shell. Your switch is located on the shift lever, the wire for the switch is routed through the handle and comes out where the shift lever mounts to the column. Look very closely at the wire in this area. Most likely rubbed through. MR

Remove the interior door panel this can be done with the door closed. peel back the moisture barrier, look inside the door and you will see a latch mechanism with two cables next to it, the top cable releases the top latch and the bottom cable releases the bottom latch, the top latch cable is probably not mounted to the latch (anchored) you will probably have to replaace it with a new one, then it should work fine. Hope this helps, let me know

There is a slot where the cable is suppose to lock in. When the cable
end brakes it falls out of the slot. I put cable over slot and duct taped
in place till i get new cables. There are 2 cables 1 on top and 1 on

You will have to open it from the inside-Yes, I have done it and it takes about 15 min. or so.-I have also posted about 40 images, after I opened the door-In an effort to contribute a little to all the lost souls with the Curse of the F150 3rd Door issue. Hope this helps-BTW I just did this on 12/04/2011-found my particular issue-I will need a new cable, so I'll have to go to the dealer tomorrow and buy one. Also included images of the tools needed-Good Luck!
