I have the same problem some times it dosn't work most of the time it dose.
I have replaced the batterys cleaned the contacts can't find any problems after electricly testing it all .
I think that sometimes their is electrical interferance from other vehicles in the area .This happens when I am in big parking lots the super markets or mails its like the garage door opener that opens the guys next stores garage .
The frequency's are finite and over lap

It may be the controller, I believe it is in the driver door
usually it will periodically cause the doors not to unlock using the driver door switch also.

    each door has an actuator, if only one door will not unlock you might suspect the corresponding actuator, but they don't all fail simultaneously, you might have someone sit in the car or put all the windows down after slim-jiming yourself in just to see if any or all of the door lock switches are working from the inside

You need to order an "actuator" and install it, or go to the Ford dealer (or your trusted mechanic) and have the actuator replaced. The actuator is a solenoid that locks an unlocks the door latch. You can do it yourself if you are willing to take your door panel off and slice up your knuckles a bit.

These things have been a source of revenue for Ford for all models for many years. They just wear out too soon under normal use.

Both my 2004 Freestar side door actuators stopped working (intermittently at first) withing 2 months of each other in 2007. I ordered them from Bob Utter Ford (1-800-259-3560), for $42 each plus $9 shipping. See if your Ford dealer can match that before you order.

SOURCE: 1997 BMW 528i The passenger side front and rear doors won't

I had the same problem on the rear door of my 1998 528i and it was the door actuator that had gone bad. I had to take the rear seat out to get the door panel off. Once I had the door panel off it was not that difficult to replace the door actuator.

This is probably caused by:

a loose door switch, or

a loose connection to a door switch, or

a defective (dirty / corroded) door switch.

There is a false signal being sent that a door is open / ajar.

Unlock Chevy spark with slim Jim


Most lock out companies use a long metal rod that is inserted through the top of the door and is then used to push the power door lock button or the lock button. If you gently pull on the top of the door and insert a wedge to keep the door ajar slightly, you can use a coat hanger and manoevere it to touch the door lock button

Unlock a 2008 1500 Chevrolet Silverado Truck with a slim jim?


Slim Jims do not work very well. There is a new tool that is heavier than a hanger. You sneak it down between the door jam and door frame and either push the power door lock button or pull the unlock knob in the door panel to unlock the door.

How to unlock 1998 mustang with a slim jim?


When you slide the slim Jim in between the glass and the door skin line up your slim Jim so it points towards the door lock button. Gently lift up while watching the door lock button. If you see it wiggle you are on the right track. You may have to bend the slim Jim a little to get it to hook the correct rod. Be patient and you will get it. It take a little practice. I used to repo cars and was pretty good at it. Like I said just keep at it.

Locked out of my mustang. Have a slim jim. how does it work?


Lots of things inside your door that a slim Jim can destroy. But basically slide it between the window and the rubber seal at the bottom of the glass. The idea is to hook onto the door lock linkage and pull up or push down. I'd really recommend letting a professional do it with modern lockout tools. Very easy to break stuff with that tool.

1993 Nissan Maxima SE Car Alarm freaks out, and other electrical


Im no professional but i did recently buy a 93 maxima and i have the same security alarm problem and my powered locks dont work at all. im taking off the door panel today to take a look and see if the alarm sensor is loose or damaged, if it is, ill probably just disconnect it. one thing i have noticed though is that when i hit the lock or unlock button, i hear a faint click from the dashboard area which im assuming is the solenoid on a transistor which would mean that the buttons work but the transistor isnt delivering power. Semi-Solution for Locks: Listen for very quiet click when you lock/unlock doors, if you hear it, uve got major work to do, if you dont, then take apart the door and check the switch connections. Semi-Solution for Alarm: take off the door panel and disconnect the sensor.
