Question about 2000 Ford Ranger SuperCab
The passenger door will not lock or unlock with either driver or passenger door or the key fob. The only way it will lock is if I push the latch on the door down and the only way it will open is if I open the door from the inside. I think it is a bad lock actuator but not sure.
I think you got it just right. If the drivers door lock works, then it is almost certainly the actauator as they are both on same circuit.

Pull the panel off starting at the top, you can just pry the window control apart, you don't need to unscrew that part. I sprayed white grease (lubriplate) all around the door latch inside there, and it unlatched easy.
After I put it back together, the knob still doesn't rise as high as the other side. I think the linkage is binding, and the connecting rod is bent. At least if the door won't unlock with the button you can do it by hand.

You are on the right track.
Door panel is easy to take off. you need a screwdriver and a panel popper (or if you don't have one carefully pull the panel off with your hands, you may have to get new panel clips) ,they are cheap so no big deal.

Did you try pulling the door handle? they normally over ride the lock, also a coat hanger will unlock it so yuo can get tothe door to fix.

I believe your problem is directly related to the elecrical contacts in the door key lock itself. I understand that the door locks but wont unlock. If the switch in the lock tumbler it self is not defective you may have other electrical problems in this circuit. do you have the same problem on the passenger door or is it specific to the drivers side only

I just want to know if there is any manual to disarm the lift gate and check for the problem. Currently my door is lock and cant open, how you force it to open?
