2001 Ford Windstar LX

I have a 2001 Ford Windstar LX with Dual Manual Sliding Doors. Why is the door handle so hard to open? It seems like you have to really yank it to get it to open. It slides just fine, otherwise.

Check adjustment of the door locking mechanism. It is possible that the door lock is jamming on the striker plate because it has fallen slightly

SOURCE: the radio with a 6 disc changer stock wont eject

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Locate your DVD player’s manual Eject button. It is usually a small hole located underneath the DVD drawer.

Use a stiff wire, a paper clip or safety pin—into the hole. Push gently and the drawer should open partway. Gently pull the drawer the rest of the way open and remove the CD.




Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

SOURCE: Power sliding doors not opening, fuses are good

I know you said the fuses are good, but try pulling fuse 13 in the fuse box by the right front footwell. Leave it out for 1 minute, then reinstall and try the doors. If the doors have lost their initialization this will reset them.

SOURCE: I have also broke off my 2001 Nissan Quest sliding

the child lock rod may have been extended...
open the driver side door, and with a skinny finger, push that child lock rod back in towards the rear of the sliding door
use the passenger side as reference
once you pushed it in, you can now open it from the inside handle

2001 ford windstar door ajar light on even with all doors shut


In Windstar models the problem can be caused by the side sliding door contacts, but either of the two other switches in the right and left doors can also cause the light to blink on at times or just stay lighted. The issue is most noticed when the van is turned hard right or left when driving or on a rough road. A Ford dealer can run a test with a special scanner and ID exactly which switch is at fault.

How do i get sliding doors open when door handle fails inside and out.


With a hammer, or an axe?
Or if you can remove the furnishing on the inside of the door, you can reach the opening lever.

2001 windstar annoying problems with auto locks


Does this happen all the time or only if weather is hot or damp? You need to open your sliding doors, disconnect your negative battery terminal, there will be 5 prongs on your sliding doors and 5 contacts on your door jamb. They are made of copper and you need to sand them down little with fine grit sandpaper possible 120 grit. Close the doors connect your battery terminal back on and make sure it is corrosion free. Check the operation after and see if the problem is solved?

2001 ford windstar sliding door wont shut


I have found that Windstar sliding doors are subject to amnesia. If they are not opened and closed regularly, they "forget" what they are supposed to do. I make it a point to use my fob regularly to open and close the door (one in my case) to keep it focused on the job at hand

Power door locks


This could be hard to diagnose for someone that doesn't know about electronically controlled automotive systems . There are two electronic control modules involved ! (FEM) front electronic control module and the (REM) rear electronic control module . The first step would be to hook up a scan tool to look at input data to the control modules. Corrupt signals to the module ! B+ power an ground circuits problems . The wiring inside the harness from the body to driver door , opening an closing of the door breaks the wires over time . Load testing the circuit will find the problem.
