Try replacing the battery in your remote, that's the most likely culprit.

Cycle the ignition on and off 8 times in a row, then you should hear he door locks cycle, press lock and then unlock on your remote(s) (all remoes must be present or it will be erased from he vehicles memory.) Your remotes should now be reprogrammed.

Ford focus 2000 model 1.6 engine.Unable to lock or unlock doors using the remote control unit.Battery is ok

So you have checked the battery? Sometimes if you use a battery checker and it says the battery is ok - it could be until you put a workload on it meaning in the remote when you push a button - that remote is demanding voltage from that battery and the battery may not have power left in it to do the job. Try replacing the battery - RadioShack is a good place to look for those (under $6)- most of the time it is just a CR# or A23 or GP27 battery. If that does not make a difference then check the fuses in the car (refer to the owners manual). But definetly start with the cheapest fix first being the battery in the remote.

2000 Ford Focus automatic door locks quit working. Replaced Central locking module, but still does not work. All of the doors will only work manually. Remote works to open trunk only - will not work on...

check fuse 63 first.

Visual Inspection Chart Mechanical Electrical
  • Binding latch mechanisms
  • Binding linkage
  • Misaligned door
  • Central junction box fuse 63 (20A)
  • Damaged wiring harness
  • Loose or corroded connection(s)
  • Circuit
  • Door lock switch
  • Door lock actuator

It could also be your GEM (generic electronic module) which is expensive as it controls a lot of stuff. A scan tool can be used to cehck for fault codes from the GEM.
