I have a 2001 ford Taurus, car runs good when door locks work right but when door locks doesn't work, car doesn't run right and looses power going uphill


Do you know what a wiring diagram is ? Do you know how to use a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter ? How to do voltage drop testing ? Checking the compleat electrical circuit for the power door locks is the way to find out what your problem is . Videos on youtube showing how to do this the proper way . Looking at a wiring diagram I also see the GEM - generic electronic module is the control for power lock's . I suggest you watch this video as well Control Module Diagnostics with John Anello Mastering Voltage Drop Testing with Pete Meier and Jerry Truglia
Also you will need a factory scan tool or a professional grade , check for codes in the GEM . More then likely a lose connection , but code be a bad GEM module. Also could be a broke wire inside the rubber boot from the body to the door .

1988 ford taurus wagon chimes everytime i go 45+ mph and the speed light flashes... what's wrong?


You probably have the speed reminder set to 45mph. It chimes & flashes to let you know you are speeding. It will tell you how to adjust it in your owners manual. If you don't like it set it high eg: 100mph. then it won't happen.

The fans are relay controlled, likely problem. Most current demanding componants have relays because a switch circuit would burn out. All your issures are very possibly relay issues. Find the relay bank and chk yhem for overheating, burn out, or plain ole malfunction. Good Luck, -Ned-

Try spraying some wd40 into all the latch assy. most lickly its the drivers door(it gets used the most). If that doesnt work it could be in the wire harrness going from the body of the car to the door(drivers door most likely).

Combination on car keypad does not open doors


Does the key pad on the door light up? Are there any tears in the key pad numbers? Does the key pad lock the doors?.
There are no fuses directly for the pad.. The key pad is linked directly to the RAP. module. If the locks work from the FOB the fuses for the Module are good. Chances are the pad is no good especially if it don't light up. The RAP module is above the driver side foot well, directly above the accelerator pedal . Hope this helps.

Key Pad Entry does not work


does the key pad light when you press a button at night? If yes, the fuse is ok.
Do you have the plastic card with the permanent code in your owner manual packet? If yes, tryit.
report back.

Keyless Entry The keyless entry keypad is hardwired to the GEM. The GEM interprets the inputs from the keyless entry keypad and then controls the associated operation. The keyless entry keypad will be illuminated for five seconds when any button is pressed. Additionally, it will request the illuminated entry feature to turn the courtesy lamps on. If a lock all doors code is entered, the illumination will turn off, as well as request the illuminated entry feature to turn off the courtesy lamps. When pressed, the keyless entry keypad supplies the ground signal to the GEM or the GEM receives a signal from the keyless entry remote transmitter. Then the GEM outputs a ground signal to the appropriate lock or unlock relay which supplies the power to the actuator to lock or unlocks all doors, including the luggage compartment. The keyless entry remote transmitter also unlocks the liftgate or activates the panic alarm by sending a signal to the GEM.
