Hi
Have you checked the catch rather than the lock mechanisim? sometimes if the latch is not alaigned correctly then the lock will struggle at times to open it.
Ensure the latch is perfectly lined up and Use WD-40 on any suspect sticky parts to free them off.

Regards
Dan

2001 windstar annoying problems with auto locks


Does this happen all the time or only if weather is hot or damp? You need to open your sliding doors, disconnect your negative battery terminal, there will be 5 prongs on your sliding doors and 5 contacts on your door jamb. They are made of copper and you need to sand them down little with fine grit sandpaper possible 120 grit. Close the doors connect your battery terminal back on and make sure it is corrosion free. Check the operation after and see if the problem is solved?

Two of my door locks will not unlock w/ remote or inside button.


The door lock actuators or 'solenoids' have failed. This seems to be pretty common on Windstars - I've just replaced a couple on my '02. (Ironically, the original batteries in the remote fobs are still going strong, they lasted longer than the actuators). You can buy third party replacement parts, the front door ones are 'handed' driver & passenger, but a common part will work for both sliding doors. I don't have instructions for removing the door panels, but search online - it's not tricky. The original actuators are riveted in place - you'll need to drill out these rivets. The new actuator can be held in place with a nut, bolt & couple of washers. Replacing these parts isn't too difficult - the first one took me about 1.5 hours, but once I knew what I was doing, the second one took about 0.5 hours. Good luck.

Check to be sure there is not a seperate fuse for the wiper. Check power and ground at the motor. if you have power and ground replace the motor. if you don't, check for a break in the wires where the harness bends at the tailgate. take the interior door trim apart to unlock and open then inspect the inside of the door and all components. i can't really help with seeing it. the econolines have issues with the lock cylinders.
