Do you know what a wiring diagram is ? Do you know how to use a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter ? How to do voltage drop testing ? Checking the compleat electrical circuit for the power door locks is the way to find out what your problem is . Videos on youtube showing how to do this the proper way . Looking at a wiring diagram I also see the GEM - generic electronic module is the control for power lock's . I suggest you watch this video as well Control Module Diagnostics with John Anello Mastering Voltage Drop Testing with Pete Meier and Jerry Truglia
Also you will need a factory scan tool or a professional grade , check for codes in the GEM . More then likely a lose connection , but code be a bad GEM module. Also could be a broke wire inside the rubber boot from the body to the door .

2001 Ford Taurus No Heat I am having trouble with


possibly the bled door is stuck open so only the cold air from a/c works when on defrost vs closing to allow heat to cycle through the system as defrost runs through the a/c system

Power windows and locks don't work on 1991 taurus but fuses are all good


do they not work only with the driver's control or at all the controls? if it's only the driver's control then you need to see if the control is getting juice. on an older car sometimes the wires that go from the body to the door (the ones with the rubber bellows between the door hinges) will break from constant flexing. or if you've got a security lock button sometimes it will jam in the locked position and won't allow any of the other controls to work.

Hi Mike i have a 2001 olds aurora with both rear doors and windows out of commission. Seems like neither is getting any power the windows don't go up or down and my keyless remote will not unlock or...


There is a control module in each door with connectors. I have already had one where the wiring in the connector was bad. This takes some troubleshooting, but sometimes moving things around while trying to run the windows will should you where the loose connection is.

Trying to program a remote, but it doesn't work.  i followed the instructions turned the key from off to on 8 times and left it at on, but the locks did nothing. can you help?


WHAT FOLLOWS IS THE CORRECT PROCEDURE, REMEMBER YOU MUST COMPLETE THE 8 KEY CYCLES IN LESS THAN 10 SECONDS, IF YOU DO IT RIGHT THE POWER LOCKS WILL GO UP AND DOWN TO INDICATE IT IS READY FOR PROGRAMMING.

1. Turn ignition from OFF to RUN 8 times within 10 seconds, with the 8th time ending in
RUN. Door locks will cycle to confirm programming mode.

2. Within 20 seconds press any button on first keyless remote. Door locks will cycle
to confirm programming.

3. Within 20 seconds, press any button on second keyless remote. Door locks will
cycle again to confirm programming.

4. Turn ignition to OFF. Locks will again cycle to indicate end of programming mode.

button 3 times.
2. Turn the ignition key to OFF, then press the door UNLOCK control
button 3 times.
3. Turn the ignition key to RUN, within five seconds press the door
