    Does the door lock unlock OK from inside? Is the problem only when using the key from the outside?

It's internal. Whatever the problem is, it's gonna require you to take the door panel off and examine. I suspect worn bushings and/or bent linkage. Someone may have tried to "jimmy" your door open with a slim jim and messed something up.

The Ford Tempo is pretty shoddy in the workmanship when it comes to the power equipment. The lock(s) can get stuck because of the lock actuator(s). If the lock(s) feels crunchy, it could also be crud and/or rust.

Flashing lights on security system for 1993 ford escort wagon


usualy there is a switch on the driver and passener side, try disarming by unlocking drivers door with the key to disarm the factory alarm, or the passenger door. this should turn off the alarm if it is not aftermarket. the factory alarm will arm any time the door is locked by key or power door lock. good luck

How do you unlock an Audi a4 that has a dead battery and the key will not open the door or trunk


1. First time spray an antifreeze product into the driver's door key hole in order to thawing it. Try again to unlock the door.
2. Flush some warm water upon the driver's door key hole in order to thawing it. Try again to unlock the door.
3. Spray also some WD-40 product into the door key hole in order to unlock the door. Try to slowly turn the key to open the door. Don't force the ignition key!
4. If no success until now, I suggest you another method: you will be able to open the hood if you pull off your splash guard and use a long long flat head screwdriver or something like that. You'll see the hood latch in front of the radiator with the cable attached to it at the top near the hood, put it on the drivers side edge of the bottom of the latch and pry to the passenger side, the lever moves from the drivers side to the passengers side, the cable basically pulls the top of it to achieve this. so your doing the same thing on the bottom with the screwdriver.

Release the latch from underneath by the lever that you have to pry towards the passenger side. Then open the hood, and charge or replace the battery.

Please do rate my response. Thanks!

Door wont unlock when i put key in


I believe your problem is directly related to the elecrical contacts in the door key lock itself. I understand that the door locks but wont unlock. If the switch in the lock tumbler it self is not defective you may have other electrical problems in this circuit. do you have the same problem on the passenger door or is it specific to the drivers side only

Ford Escort Alarm - Annoying Problem!


it seems that the contact circuit in the driverside door is the problem, it's obviously not the alarm itself others wise the same thing would occure on the passengerside. you have to remove the door panel on the driverside and inspect the wires in that circuit for corrosion which would cause no current to pass between the by pass switch the arms or disarms the alarm. please rate this
