Question about 2003 Ford ZX2

1 Answer

Need to open door panel

I got backed into and the drivers side door is dented in. The door still works fine, but the window was down at the time. I don't believe the window is broke, just off the track, or possibly the motor is dislocated. Anyway I am just trying to figure out how to remove the inside door panel to take a better look and see what is going on.

There are a series of screws around the bottom of the door panel and some in the center in the handle or under it and you will have to pull the door panel off it will seem stuck but if u get a corner off you can see the push pops which are flanged plastic that hold the panel on tightly all around if they break you can buy new ones at most auto parts stores

My 2006 F-150 drivers side control panel is dead & none of the electric windows, locks, mirrors or door sensor will work. I checked all the fuses & they are fine. The passenger door sensor &...


With the list you have, I would think broken ground wire in the rubber boot from the A-pillar to the door on the driver's side.
I have seen this one a few times ( not chronic but happens ).

It is a black wire in the door to a-pillar harness. SWAG at why the window worked when open part way, the wire touched at that one time, and pulled back apart again.

Toyota corolla verso 2007 . the central locking has stopped working


Toyota Corolla Verso - Central locking has just stopped responding


So you don't waste your time, here are some assumptions: -

1. When I press the key fob there is no sound of doors trying to lock/unlock and I know the key fob is fine.


Solution:


In this situation reset the alarm/locking system

Below is the procedure I followed to get the central locking working again: -

Open the passenger door, and look at the side of the dash board. There should be a triangular panel. Pull the panel off to reveal a small set of fuses(see the back of the panel for the fuse map). To power down the central locking you need to remove the Dome Light fuse, this is located top left. Second one down 7.5 amps. (if in doubt remove the top two 7.5 amp fuses I did)

When you remove the fuse(s) you will notice the interior light go out indicating you have powered down the system.

Now leave them out for at least 30 mins so any capacitors can discharge properly. (Be aware while the fuse is removed all central locking is disabled, so the other doors are open. I left the fuse(s) out over night with all the doors open but I don't recommend it, 30 mins should be fine)

After 30 mins replace the fuse(s) close all doors, and then try your key fob, hopefully you should here that satisfying locking sound.


2. When I press the key fob I hear the locking system trying to engage.

This could be a faulty door switch on any door including the boot, or there could be a dent in the inner door panel of any of the doors, usualy the rear doors due to the seat belt not retracting properly.

Solution:

Check all door switches for damage, and check inner panel for dents, just a small dent where the switch connects can be enough to not engage the switch. This will stop the central locking.

Use some kitchen roll wrapped in tape (as a makeshift pad) and tape to the inner door as a temp measure to engage the door switch. At least you can then lock the car.

I need to remove the interior panel on the driver side of a 2002 2 door Chevy Cavalier so I can get at a dent behind the driver's door. How do I remove that panel?


You'll need to 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. then you can pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything inside the door

Driver side door inside panel


look behind handle for screw under a little plastic plate, same in side grip where you close door, maybe 1 more behind relector on door if equipped with one, then pull door slowly away, you will hear pops when doing this, it is ok. they are plastic screw kida things but they shouldnt break. if they fall out, you will need them to put door back on

1994 Jeep Cherokee Power Window Problem


When you open the drivers door you can see a wiring harness between the door and the body of the car.
You more than likely have wires broken in there.
