    Sorry
    Not used to using site. It is a 2000 TownCar Executive
    The power Fob quit working, I have two and changed the batteries on both and will still not work.

    Don't know if my answer went thru before. It is a 2000 Towncar, Executive series. I changed the batteries in both Fobs and they will still not open the doors nor the trunk.
    Thanks

    That doesn't sound like a "sensor", it's likely a "switch". What year Lincoln Town car is this?

SOURCE: Remote control no longer opens the lock

Sounds like the button to unlock doors on the fob is worn out. You can purchase a new one or used from your local recycle yard.

    Key remote won't lock the door change fuse and battery in remote still don't work


    Common Reasons Why Your Car Door Isn't Locking Properly The key fob battery is dead: This is one of the most common reasons why your car door lock is not working. If your locks aren't working, replacing the battery in the key fob could solve the issue. The key fob is faulty: If the battery isn't the problem, the issue may be with the fob itself. If you go to your car dealer, they can hook the fob up to a computer and make sure that the programming is still good. If it's not sending a signal, the fob will likely have to be replaced. A fuse is blown: If one door doesn't work, but others do, the problem could be a blown fuse. Replacing the fuse will correct the problem. This is a cheap and easy fix The solenoid is bad: Again, if one door doesn't work, but others do, the problem could be with the door lock solenoid. Replacing it may require removing the car door panel You have a broken wire: If the lock isn't getting power, hold the lock switch either up or down, and then open and close the door repeatedly to see if the lock will work. If it works sometimes, you probably have a broken wire

    Mervia. Why is central locking not locking any door?


    It's only an educated guess. If all other locks switches are working it' either the switch panel itself or an electrical short. Switches are popular, get it checked first

    What causes a malfunction in power locks?


    The power door locks are controlled by the BCM -body control module ! The door lock switch is an input to the BCM .
    The BCM, upon receipt of a door lock switch lock or unlock signal, will switch the appropriate door lock actuator control circuits to battery positive voltage. The opposing side of the door lock actuators are connected to ground internally within the BCM through the other door lock actuator control circuit and the doors will lock or unlock appropriately.
    First thing to do would be check power an ground circuits at the BCM ! Do you have any other systems not working -power windows etc...
    The DR/LCK fuse supplies battery positive voltage to the I/P fuse block for the door lock system. The body control module (BCM) supplies and monitors a reference voltage to the door lock switch through the door lock switch lock/unlock signal circuit. The door lock switch also receives a constant ground source. If a door lock switch is placed in the lock position or unlock position, the reference voltage is taken directly to ground and the BCM detects the voltage drop on the signal circuit.
    Should have BCM checked for stored DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes !
    Ignition ON, observe the scan tool Driver Door Lock Sw, Psgr Door Lock Sw, Driver Door Unlock Sw and Psgr Door Unlock Sw parameters while using the driver and passenger door lock switches. The parameters should change between Active and Inactive.
    ?‡'
    If the values does not change between the commanded states, refer to Door Lock Switch Malfunction.

    Command the driver door and passenger door lock actuators to LOCK and UNLOCK with the scan tool, the doors should LOCK and UNLOCK when changing between commanded states.
    ?‡'
    If a door lock actuator does not perform the LOCK and UNLOCK functions, refer to Door Lock Malfunction

    Power door lock switch?


    Sounds like the drivers door lock switch is bad an as far as the auto start remote the contacts under the button get dirty and won't make contact, open the remote like changing the battery and you can probably get at the contact button, if it's a little carbon button they can be cleaned with a pencil eraser and then paper tower with a bit of rubbing alcohol, if it's an actual switch you can try spraying some contact cleaner into the switch. let it dry before you put the battery back in.

    2007 toyota avalon keyremote won't open or lock my doors


    1) Check the battery, or replace the battery in the keyless remote transmitter 2) If battery is replace and still a no go, see if the power locks would open and close with the door lock/unlock switch in your car, and if they do, then your remote transmitter needs to be reporgram agian. If not then the power switch is damaged, or fuse blown. If transmitter needs reprogramming, please take it to your nearest dealship and they can do that for you, either free of charge or for a small fee.

    Door locks and power window


    Just did this procedure I got from coloradofans.com forums:

    "any type of power/voltage change seems to trigger this issue

    The most common symptom is power locks fail and only the driver window quits, however that is on the extended cab.

    Steps to fix and it works every time.

    take door panel off driver's door
    Disconnect the wiring attached to window and power lock control unit
    disconnect battery cables
    connect the negative to the positive cable(((NO BATTERY CONNECTED)))
    This will act to short residual voltage in the system

    5 minutes later
    place the key in the ignition and turn to the run position
    connect the wiring to the window/lock controller
    connect the negative cable to the battery
    then the positive
    open drivers side door
    turn key to the off position((do not remove yet)) you should get a series of dings through speakers telling you the key is still in the ignition
    once it begins dinging pull the key out and you should hear the door lock solenoids trigger and the windows should work." - Coloradofans.com forums

    I have a 2001 Lincoln LS. My rear passenger door


    you can try feeding the switch direct but you will need to find out which wire carries the power to the switch,this can be accomplished using a test light or small meter. when you find which wire carries the power to the switch then you by-pass the switch and put the power to the other side of the switch manually instead of using the switch and the door lock will undue ut self. then you can change the door lock actuator.
