SOURCE: Door locks don't work

Disassemble the paneling on left side ,under the steering wheel. Remove all screws and pull out the panel until you can you can reach behind it to remove the two Black Relays, on the side closest to Steering wheel. Remove the Relay covers, Clean the contacts with a 1/8 fine strip of 600 wet/dry sand paper. Only place the paper between the contacts, and pull out while holding slight pressure on the relay Armature. Turn over the sandpaper and repeat once again. Very gently press the TOP resting contact pad closer to the armature, to lessen the gap between the contact points, so the armature doesn't have to travel as far to reach the closed contact position. Repeat the above with the other2nd Relay. Replace the covers, reinstall the relays And test the Door locks prior to buttoning up the paneling. Note, a pair of long needle nosed pliers will help in removing the relays. Just Grip the relay and rock in Forward and Backward as you apply upward pressure.

SOURCE: 2000 Ford Focus automatic door locks quit working.

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.

Check the wiring to the rear hatch. The cables break and cause a variety fo problems like yours. You will have to take the plastic cover off and expose the cables.

Power lock


check door locks fuses and relays.if all is good and you cant operate door lock buttons manually problem could be in the generic electronic module.if door locks dont work from the remote battery could be dead in remote transmitter.try to reset door locks control module first obtain all remote transmitter.sit inside vechicle with all doors closed.switch ignition from off to on 8 times in 10 seconds. doors should lock then unlock.when this procedure works then press any button on any of the remote transmitter doors should lock and unlock.if all fails let dealership fix..

98 ford explorer Driver side power lock button doesn't work


The button may be defective. Unlike the other doors, if you have the electronic group there is a separate driver's door unlock relay which reverses the door lock motor, probably to disable the theft alarm and allow your fob to open just that door for entry. This relay could be defective. The master switch operates through door lock and door unlock relays and those relays could be defective also.

I am installing a keyless entry system and evrything was going smoothly until I come to the part about "connecting to a relay" I am stuck I have no idea how to do this.....


Not sure if the relay is for the door locks themselves, where the RKE control unit actuates the door lock motor.

There are a few options that can happen with this type install, depends on which after market system you are using.

The factory door locks ( without the factory RKE system ) the driver's side witch runs to the passenger side, and then to both door lock motors.

The polarity one direction is lock, the reverse polarity is unlock ( +DCV on 1 wire and ground on the other = lock, reverse the DC leads = unlock ).

The door lock diagrams for the 1998 MY F-150 :
sscullys_2.jpg
sscullys_3.jpg
sscullys_4.jpg

A relay is just a way of a load AMP draw circuit ( the RKE control unit ) to operate a higher AMP draw device ( the door lock motors ). The ones I imagine that you would need are SPDT relays ( 5 pin ).
Do you have a URL to the install directions for the one you are working on ?
If so, post back a comment to this problem.
Thanks

KEY WILL NOT UNLOCK DOOR AFTER INSTALLING NEW BATTERY


First dissconect the battery and try to turn door key with no voltage applied to vehicle. This will ensure it is not a damaged key. If door locks turn, reconnect battery. Hopefully during disconnect your electronic door locks de-energized. If keys don't work with battery disconnected then the fault doesn't have to do with your battery or electric locks at all. If they work with a disconnected battery and not with it connected you are have an electrical short, either in a switch it's self or the wiring to the door lock switches. In this case I recommend taking the vehicle to a shop for repairs, electrical can get in depth without proper tools and diagrams
