Question about 2007 Ford Focus 1.8
None of my door locks or the rear lift work from the electronic door lock buttons or remote. I checked fuse 63 and it is good - someone was wit me and they said that the GEL (??) sounded like relays were clicking but no doors were opening. I also have a light on showing that i have a door open but I cleaned and pressed all the door switches (except for the rear lift because I cant see that one) and I can't get the light to go out. Couldthe two problems be related

Using a multimeter, check for voltage at the lock/unlock solenoid. Disconnect the connector and probe the unlock side with the other lead on a good ground. Hit the unlock twice and see if you get voltage. If yes, the solenoid may be defective or if not, you could possibly have a bad relay. Even though you can hear the relay, that doesn't necessarily mean it's completing the circuit. My car did the same thing and I ended up replacing the relay.
The lock side check would be the same.
Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Door Locks
Sounds like you have an electric lock actuator going bad. It only takes one and they all act up.The vehicle security module and the switches share the same ground. It is ground #900. Located on the left C pillar. Check to see if the ground is clean and tight. You can disconnect one actuator at a time. If you disconnect the bad one, the rest will function.Did you have any doors making a loud grinding noise when the locks were applied?if yes, start with that one. If no, start with the drivers door.The drivers lock actuator sees more work than the rest since it unlocks by itself on the first push of the remote.If this is something you do not want to do,try the find a repairman option at the bottom of the page. If you need more help,don't hesitate to drop a line.Good Luck

SOURCE: Rear Door will not Lock
After researching this problem, I suspect it is the door lock actuator located in each affected door. They can be purchased online. If you also suspect this and want to fix it yourself by removing the door panel and the old actuator, then installing the new actuator, test the locks, then install the door panel. Or for more detailed information, go to this website for a how to with pictures and written instructions. http://www.ford-trucks.com/user_gallery/displayalbum.php?&albumid=12198

check fuse 63 first.
Visual Inspection Chart Mechanical Electrical
It could also be your GEM (generic electronic module) which is expensive as it controls a lot of stuff. A scan tool can be used to cehck for fault codes from the GEM.
