Try spraying WD-40 or similar in and all around door latch area on door.Spray up, down, in behind, etc as much as you can to try and unseize any linkages that may be in behind latch. Quite often the linkage to the motor for lock mechanism will get rusted & seize. After spraying, wait 5 minutes or so & keep working it manually a few times then every once in a while try power lock button. Can you at least hear it trying to work, like a faint thump in door when you hit switch or remote?

My 2001 ford focus keeps locking. The power locks automatically lock as soon as I unlock them, barely enough time to open door.


Your Focus may be equipped with the autolock feature. Try this:

To deactivate/reactivate the autolock feature using the power door unlock control

You must complete steps 1-7 within 30 seconds or the procedure will have to be repeated. If the procedure needs to be repeated, you must wait 30 seconds.

1. Turn the ignition key to ON.
2. Press the power door unlock control three times.
3. Turn the ignition key from ON to OFF.
4. Press the power door unlock control three times.
5. Turn the ignition back to ON. The horn will chirp.
6. Press the unlock control, then press the lock control.
The horn will chirp once if autolock was deactivated or twice (one short and one long chirp) if autolock was activated.
7. Turn the ignition to OFF. The horn will chirp once to confirm the procedure is complete.

theres a tech bullitin on that make where computer needs reprograming for the door locks, but it also sounds like you may have a bad actuator lock thats bad, start there call your dealer first and ask them about the reflashing of the computer for the door locks, good luck.
