    Do you know if there is any fuse or a wire to disconnect to stop central locking from locking the back doors because that is the problem. " Your driving along and the doors automatically lock then when you stop and your passengers go to open the door and its locked"

Yeah they break all the time. if your not having problems getting the door open from the outside handle, then your door latches are probably fine. the handles are pretty cheap. you just have to get the panels off the install them. two black screws under the armrest and then pull out on the panel from the bottom to release the white push pins and then lift up to unhook from the window belt moulding.

    Enabling and Disabling Autolock

    To enable (or disable) the autolock feature, the customer can use the following steps as they have been able to do on past Ford vehicles, or they may use the enabling and disabling features sequence described in this section.
    Enter the five-digit permanent entry code into the keyless entry keypad (14A626).
    Within five seconds of entering the code, press and hold the 7/8 button on the keypad.
    Within five seconds of Step 2, and while holding the 7/8 button, press the 3/4 button on the keypad and release it.
    Within five seconds of Step 3, release the 7/8 button on the keypad.
    If the autolock feature is disabled, the horn will chirp once. If the autolock feature is enabled, the horn will chirp once shortly and then a second time with a longer honk once the above sequence is completed.

    the number (14A626) is the basic part number for the keypad in case anyone was wondering.

check the door handle in side door panel there is a rod that goes into the door handle that might have fallen out of it or more likely broken the door handles at a junk yard are about 5 dollars if you take off make sure it function that none of the teeth of the handle are broken and and make sure you have the right or left door handle it will be marked on inside of interior door handle . this handle slides forward towards the front of vehicle for removal then turn to remove rod from handle.

Came home tonight, interior lights on 92 Ford Explorer. All doors shut, light switch in off mode. Any suggestions to get them off.


Likely, the plunger style switches that are in the door jam near the door hinge has lost it's lock nut and fallen into the body of the truck. The plunger would then be allow to stay extended allowing the interior to stay on.

Check for the plungers inside the door jam of all the doors, as well as the rear hatch.

The front driver side door's outside handle on my 1996 Ford Explorer became very loose. It still works but I wanted to know how to take off the door panel to look inside to see how I can fix it. Thanks


On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Pull back the weather seal and you'll be able to get to everything. Either the bolts holding the outer handle on has broken or fallen out, or the handle anchor (plastic) has broken

My interior lights will not turn off the dome light and rear bay light


check your door jamb switches to make sure they are shutting off the interior lights. They are part of the door latch.

All models have a lamp switch (13713) located in the driver's door latch that activates the interior lamp when the front door (20124) is opened.
I believe right door has one too, and maybe the hatch latch too

How to replace '96 Ford Explorer driver side exterior door handle


You will need to remove the door panel to gain access to the handle. Roll the window up or down as needed to get to the nuts that attach the handle to the door. You will also need to remove a rod the goes to the door lock. You will see the rod after the door panel is removed. Good luck.
