Question about Cars & Trucks

Sounds like the actuator may have broken loose from its mount on the inside of the door. You will have to disassemble the door panel and try and grab the actuator to hold it while you try the button. It can be remounted with a small nut and bolt.

I had almost the identical problem on my 2005 F150 FX4 Extended cab last weekend. The power door locks would not lock using the keypad, remotes, or door buttons. Almost all other functions worked correctly. The doors unlocked, the radio delay functioned, and the interior lights dimmed. When I used the remote the horn would beep twice indicating that a door was open even there was no message on the message center that a door was open. When I used the keypad or remote, I could hear a soft click from behind the seat. I think it was coming from the body security module or body security module - whatever Ford is calling it this year. I pulled the fuse for the Power Door Locks(BSM). As I removed it, I heard a soft click - sort of like a relay resetting. It may have come from the VSM/BSM. It may have possibly been a stuck actuator releasing. I don't think so. It wasn't that load. In any case, everything is functioning correctly now.

I had this problem with the door locks also and it was the door look accuators were striped out. Most locking accuators use a type of motor gear which is plastic. Over time the plastic becomes hard and the teeth break off. You can get these new or used on ebay or get some aftermarket accuators from a car alarm installer. Hope this helps. Terence

if you hit the lock button a couple times, will it finally lock?
If so, then you will need to take door cover off and lube up the connectors as they probably got corroded.

if it moves even a little bit when the button is pushed it wont be a fuse issue, you more than likely have a weak door lock actuator

Replace fuse 57 (15 amp) then disconnect battery and wait 30 to 45 minutes before reconnecting the battery.
My 2006 BMW 325I had the same problem with the door locks not responding. I checked all related fuses and found #57 (15 amp) was the only related fuse blown. I put in a new fuse and it still would not work. I then disconnected the battery for a while then once I reconnected the battery everything worked fine.
I believe I blew the fuse while repeatedly pushing the unlock button rapidly while walking across the parking lock to the car. I suggest only pushing the unlock button only once or twice.
