Question about 2002 Ford Explorer
Is intermittent, but almost never works. Sometimes it will lock using the door control. Only once in a great while. I am not certain, but it looks like the actual physical door lock knob on the door moves, or tries, but does not go fully into correct position? Overall, there seems to be the same problem regardless of whether I am using fob or door control.
Door control, meaning a key or the key pad? If it is the keypad or FOB, then your problem is the lock actuator. Replace the door latch inside the door. If you have problems with the key...There are rods and/or cables that release the lock. On these there are plastic clips that hold the rods/cables to the latch and the door handles and key lock cylinder. If one breaks it will usually work. But if two break, you get the problem you have now. Too much slop. Your best bet to find them is at a salvage yard.

Testimonial: "OK. Pretend I know nothing. because I know nothing. The electrical lock the door button on the interior door handles right near the window buttons. Both those and the fob malfunction in exactly the same manner. Which leads me to believe it is not the fob."

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...

SOURCE: locks not working properly
been there ------open up the rubber connector between the drivers door and the body [by the door hinges ] the wires break from flexing. just solder or **** connector them back together. it helps to add some wire to one of the broken ends to make it easier to connect . there may be more than 1 wire broken

the door lock actuator is defective, they get really hard to move when they go bad, that is why the difficulty with the key.

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.
