Question about Cars & Trucks
Remove one of the door panels, and check for voltage at the lock solenoids when you actuate the switch. If there is voltage but the solenoids do not operate, replace the solenoids. If there is no voltage present when you actuate the switch, lubricate the switch and it will likely begin to work again.

SOURCE: 1999 Ford Explorer Door Locks
Unfortunately, This is a very common problem with Ford Explorers! Ford replaces the locks when it encounters this issue. I managed to unseize my passanger door and tailgate lock, but the drivers door lock is broken beyond repair. You can purchase new remotes for your explorer and program them very easily. Just google ford key fobs...

A great handyman site that specifies the above probable causes and more is the following link:

On the inside trim, you can 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. Pull back the weather seal and you'll be able to get to everything. Either the bolts holding the outer handle on has broken or fallen out, or the handle anchor (plastic) has broken
