Possible broken wire between door and body. May be dirty knob in radio. You can spray with crc electronic cleaner and rotate back and forth. Spray the rod not the button. Check for broken wires. Connector may be bad inside door also.

SOURCE: 2005 ford freestar power door

You need to order an "actuator" and install it, or go to the Ford dealer (or your trusted mechanic) and have the actuator replaced. The actuator is a solenoid that locks an unlocks the door latch. You can do it yourself if you are willing to take your door panel off and slice up your knuckles a bit.

These things have been a source of revenue for Ford for all models for many years. They just wear out too soon under normal use.

Both my 2004 Freestar side door actuators stopped working (intermittently at first) withing 2 months of each other in 2007. I ordered them from Bob Utter Ford (1-800-259-3560), for $42 each plus $9 shipping. See if your Ford dealer can match that before you order.

SOURCE: 1998 Jeep Cherokee Internal locks and power locks Not working.

Open the door panels and lube all of your lock mechanisms. They tend to get stuck and it harms the locking motor. After I lube mine up, they freely move. Just spray some lithium grease and manually lock and unlock the door with the rocker until it moves very easily. You'll probably have to do this once a year like I do.

So as not to be repetitive, for the failure of your power window or windows, review this handy diagnostic article, which identifies the possible causes, from a bad fuse, relay to window motor, etc.:

For power door lock failure, similarly, see this handy diagnostic article:

This should help.

2008 avalanche the radio has issues, the post speakers work all the time, sometimes front right speaker works othe time rear left whats the DEAL?

First check the speakers wiring, due to the car movement these wires tend to break or create a bad connection, at the doors they break at the passage of the door to the body, inside a rubber coil. The speakers also can get wet due to water infiltration, so check for it too.

Stereo speakers only work when outside temp is 75 or greater. No continuity to speaker wires. According to schematic diagram I suspect connector c304 is not connected properly but I can't find it. Where...

there have been problems with speakers doing this over the years. and there are 2 points number one the speakers in the doors are getting damp and the connector on the speaker/s has become unworkable. 2 the amp on the radio itself has a problem ( amp can become temperature related i.e there is the main amp chip sits on the heatsink some will become used to certain temps and turn off if not at this temp or goes over it. there is a working temp on some of these chips between -3c to 75c any higher or lower it will not work this setting in the chip can go wrong) . what you need to do to determine what is what you need to take the door panel off and test the speaker in that door.. if it is the external amp there is 2 areas it can one is under the rear seat the other is the the boot side panels this all depends on the amp fitted. if under the back seat there is sometimes a chance of damage from rear passengers jumping up and down on the seat... hope this helps.

Put new stereo in car but spekers dont work and the airreul is atink like an earth

Please check if the stereo is wired according to the correct wiring specially connecting the +12, the switched +12 , the ground and the speakers. Now check each and every speaker carefully using a AA cell to hear the noise when the wires are held so as to confirm that the speaker lines are correct ., the speakers are working and there is no shorting.
The ground must be given seperately to the stereo and the antenae earth line is normal to the connection.

The sound chip may have gone in the stereo, especially if someone has had it on very loud they sometimes blow, otherwise you have 2 speaker wires touching each other, that way you only get static noise, insidee the door they sometimes come free and touch the body

Check all your speaker wires first.

On cloudy days buzzer,speakers will not work. if sun shines will

Sounds like speakers are going bad. I had a set that got wet and they worked sometimes, didn't work other times. Sounds like the bigger issue is why they're getting wet. I'd check to see if rain, etc. is getting down into the door somehow.
