  • Ignition switch off.
  • Intermittent wiper set to middle position.
  • Ignition back on.
  • Back in business!

    Ok I just bought a 97 Expedition and never noticed that the front drivers door lock had been punched out. The problem that I have now is the door will not lock. It doesn't matter whether I use the door...

    Sounds like linkage inside door is disconnected from actual lock or has been removed. To verify, you're going to have to remove inside door panel and inspect.

    When I try to lock or unlock the doors either with the remote or door switch, nothing happens. When I push the lock button on the remote, the horn sounds but the doors do not lock.

    In the engine copartment there is a fuse/relay box. Check the rel;ay for power door locks, It should click when you push the door lock remorte button or the door switch. If it doesnt replace that relay. If it does click then the issue could be with the computer in which it would need to be whats called "flash programming". This is basically a software update much like when you computer does all that software update stuff itself. For the flash update that will need to be done at the dealership.

    Pull drivers rear door panel off
    1. Remove door lock solenoid and plug it into another door to see if it works
    2. If you can reach inside the door to the final mechanism that everything pushes on, push it yourself to see if it works
    3. Also look on side of door for possible child saftey lock switch

    Front drivers door lock issues

    Our '97 Jetta locking is similar. One back door does not go down with the driver's door key double turn. We push it down manually before locking the rest with the key. I believe electrical lock actuator is gone on that door. Down the repair list. I have had door panels off on the car fixing electric window regulator. There is quite an expensive plastic sheet glued on to inside of door for sound proofing. Real hard not to tear. I bought new one from the dealer. Also little plastic clips around the door panel perimeter were brittle and about 50% broke, but not so expensive.
