Re: 1995 ford contour drivers door lock switch does not...
Check the wires in the rubber boot between the door and the door jamb. You may have a wire that has broken from all the years of bending in the boot. Also check the switch that controls the locks located on the drivers door.

The windows and power locks are controlled through a central computer module called the Generic electronic module, you must have this module scanned by the dealer (or a well equipped shop with a Ford compatible scanner) to see what is wrong with the system.
Drivers side door will not close because, it might have dropped out of alignment and is sagging down slightly!!! or if it has electric door locks, and someone in the family has failed to mention door locks were activated while that one door was still open!!! now lock mechanism has passed it's normal stopping place and is now stuck, therefore already locked and not allowing door to close all the way!! you might try disconnecting battery then try jiggling the lock, and hope silenoid didn't get burned out, open passenger door and look at lock latch, then check drivers side lock latch!!! if your lucky lock latch should unlock when battery is hooked back up. i have seen this problems happen often on older vehicles!!! especially on cars or trucks that have been in fender benders.........body shops know what to check for, they fix problems like this often!!!!! Good luck!!
yes a spring has broken in the door lock .the lock has to be replaced.the springs are made special and once lock is removed better to have one ready to go back in, less chance of forgetting how it all goes back together.
The door lock/unlock
input from the driver's key switch goes to the Door Multiplex control
unit (main switch), the Door multiplex control unit then sends a signal
on the BUS (CAN) circuit to the passenger's multiplex control unit; the
passenger's multiplex control unit then controls all the door locks. The passenger's door lock key switch inputs to the passenger's multiplex control unit, if the
locks work from the passenger's side key switch but not the driver's
side key switch, the most likely cause is the driver's multiplex
control unit (main switch) not sending the signal to the passenger's
side multiplex control unit. This could also be the drivers side door lock actuator. Hope this helps!
Aside from the fuses, your drive side power door lock may be failing to work because of a bad door-lock relay system, or, alternatively, the locking switch/button, itself, is not malfunctioning and in need of replacement.
