Question about 2000 Ford Ranger SuperCab

Ford ranger passenger door lock wont lock

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.

SOURCE: 1997 ford explorer rear driver side door won't open

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.

SOURCE: passenger side door will only unlock if you pull handle and only lock if you push lock down.key,switch or remote won't work.

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.

SOURCE: door wont unlock when i put key in

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

How to reset anti theft


You have to have a key with the chip. Shut the hood and trunk, lock all the doors. If you have a key fob, try it first. That should disarm the security. If not lock it again and unlock the passenger side door with the key. Reach in and unlock the drivers door by the handle. If this works then your key switch on the drivers side is bad. That's why the security sets. Some times they just fall off the lock. They're made of plastic. If all that fails, your looking at a reset. That would be a locksmith or the dealer.

Ford falcon locks


Dude, the same thing happened with my EL falcon. It turned out to be the key fob! The buttons were sometimes sticking and all of a sudden it would re-lock. Ususally it would unlock then immediately relock. Leaving no time to get into the the car. Sometimes we would be driving and the Alarm would go off without touching a thing. I ditched the Key Fob and all was well again.
I hope this helps
