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: Power sliding door won't close properly on 2005 Freestar

U will need to buy a can of spray white grease and clean and then lubricate all the tracks the door channels on as well as all the latches for the door, this will cure the issue in most cases, did allot of these while working at a Ford dealer.

Hey guys , i got one that i think i know whats wrong but i want to check with others to see, ok so here it is my lock switch on the drivers side only unlocks the doors it does not lock but all the other lock switches in the car fully work so im thinkin maybe its the driver side door lock switch.


This is a common problem with this model. If you access the wires in the boot between the door you will find a broken wire about an inch from the connector. Hope this helps!!

SOURCE: 2001 Ford Excursion door locks will not unlock or lock.

Unfortunately the actuators are bad. You could try removing the door panels and disconnect one actuator at a time and possibly only have a couple bad but it is common to have more than on go bad. I hope this helps. Good luck.

I need code for entry on driver side door of 2005 Ford freestar van. I locked keys out I mean inside car I need code


You probably won't get this over the internet, since that would be a code for every thief in the world to get into a Ford Freestar. You should check the paperwork that came with the vehicle for the code. It is different for each car. Also, there are usually two sets of keys - can you use the other set to unlock?
As a last resort, a local locksmith will be able to get the doors unlocked.

Electric latch on the rear Hatch door will not unlock


I guess ford was trying to make a couple more bucks by not putting key locks on all doors. Anyway, if you crawl inside and pop the small cover(about 2"x2") off the inside of the hatch where the latch is located you can reach in with a screwdriver and manually move control arms. The lever on the back/far side of assembly is in the locked position, you need to move to the opposite side left or right of it's current position, this will unlock the latch and should allow you to open the door. You mave have to pop acutor arm loose to move it. My problem ended up being the outside cover {license plate frame)seal had been damaged by a ford mechanic, that or it was defective. Water got in and damaged the the lock acuator. Had to replace entire assembly as ford does'nt offer just the acuator. Sealed the outside cover with clear silione.

Pull the door panel and find the cause, it can be a faulty lock motor or the linkage rod has come off due to a broken retainer clip.

My 2005 Honda Odyssey driver's side manual sliding door won't open/unlock - I hear the lock mechanism moving when I activate the power lock/unlock, but the door cannot be opened no matter what i...


More than likely the connecting rod that goes from the door lock actuator to the locking mechanism itself came unattached. These rods are usually held in place by a small piece of plastic that the rods "pop" in and out. The only other thing i can imagine possible is that the door lock itself is actually seized up. In order to attempt to fix this, you would have to remove the door side panel to see the inner workings of the door, and this is quite difficult on most side sliding doors (i have a 2000 pontiac montana w/dual sliding doors). Hope this can help you solve your problem.
